Feel free to list typos, errors, and make other comments.

Help me out here with some logic:

1. Sailer is God
2. God is infallible
3. Not publishing this book until after the election constitutes a mistake
4. But God doesn't make mistakes

What am I missing?

Kidding. But seriously, where is the win in publishing it after the fact? I guess it wasn't apparent 8-12 months ago that Obama would win and that the media would roll over for him this badly, still...

Release the book before the election and discussion of your book is dominated by the hysterical partisans and those who pander to them. With the election over your book is forgotten. So it only pays to publish an election season book if it's a lucrative partisan hack job.

I thought you'd have the anecdote about how Barack goes to Kenya and tut-tuts a relative about how ethnic differences are 'keeping them back', because from America they have no resonance. Highlights that he under appreciates that big problems have big roots.

p217 "he could have just ended it with him breaking down in tears" - if you were being stuffily correct that would be "with his breaking down in tears".
