I call myself a Republican because I am one. I believe in market solutions and common sense realities and the necessity to defend ourselves against a dangerous world. The problem is now I have to be homophobic. I have to count the number of times people go to church. I have to deny facts and think scientific research is a long con. I have to think poor people are getting a sweet ride and I have to have such a stunning inferiority complex that I fear education and intellect… in the 21st century. But most of all the biggest new requirement, really the only requirement, is that I have to hate democrats.
The book was bought by Sidney Falco. Sidney Falco is a character from Sweet Smell of Success. Someone wanted to create the impression of a bidding war.
