Review

A collection, mostly clever, of short pieces, mostly political, from Timothy McSweeney’s Internet Tendency; inevitably, it skews somewhat leftward, though this is a problem only if you insist that your reading material be somewhere to the right of George Bush. (Any George Bush; at this point it doesn’t matter.) The funniest stuff here is indeed hilarious, though the trouble with compilations of this sort generally is that the gap between Best and Worst is painfully obvious.
