Currently Reading

Crunchy Cons: How Birkenstocked Burkeans, gun-loving organic gardeners, evangelical free-range farmers, hip homeschooling mamas, right-wing nature lovers, and their diverse tribe of countercultural conservatives plan to save America (or at least the Republican Party)
by Rod Dreher

Loving it, so far, even though I'm not a member of the Republican Party (or any political party for that matter) and have more libertarian leanings than anything else. But crunchy fits. As does ultra conservative in the non-current "republican" sense of the word.

This book is worth a read.

Now, my birkenstocked self is off to the Farmer's Market for some locally grown produce on this lovely summer's day.

Where did you get this? I'd be interested, speaking as one of a handful of "socialist conservatives" in the U.S. ;-)

I enjoyed this book too, although I thought he could have used some tighter editing.

I checked it out from the library...

I also don't affiliate wtih any particular political party...

I got it at the library. Amazon.com carries it, if you want to buy.

I read that a little while back and wrote about it on my blog. I will be interested to hear your comments about it when you're all done. :)
