Amazon Knows Me Best

After the slew of lousy books I got for Christmas this year, maybe my last name should be Amazon. He/she recommends I read this, this and this. Seems they know me better than some in my family.

Actually, these recommendations were probably generated by this purchase. It is a fantastic book, written by the Economist's US correspondents. I've never read a more accurate depiction of conservatives in America. If you're interested in why the Republicans have a natural demographic advantage, it's a good read. Of course that doesn't mean that the people running the party will use their advantage, as was evident in the recent congressional elections.
