Summary
  • Don't be seduced by all this nonsense about "the politics of hope": skepticism, pessimism, and suspicion of happy talk are the true characteristics of an authentically conservative temperament
  • A scathing, mordantly funny romp through today's dismal and dismaler political and cultural scene, We Are Doomed provides a dose of reality, revealing just how the GOP has been led astray in recent years-and showing that had conservatives held on to their fittingly pessimistic outlook, America's future would be far brighter. --from publisher description
