« Review: W.G. Sebald's On the Natural History of Destruction | Main | Should Gauck Replace Wulff as President? Not so fast... »

The important strategy is just to point out, over and over, that Romney is a Mormon. I refuse to be called a bigot for doing that. I don't like Mormons, I don't like what they stand for, and I would hate to have a Mormon in the White House.

Mitt Romney's campaign does not like a recently published novel, The Assassination of Spiro Agnew:


It tells too much about the Mormons' superiority complex and how that fuels racism, sexism, and jingoism on the ground.

It tells too much about the Mormons' anti-federal government temperament.

Mitt Romney would not like this book.
It is literary and subtle, and Mitt Romney would not grok its subtlety, but he would not like it on the surface, either.
On the surface, it shows the similarities between Islam and Mormonism, and it tells too much about the secrets of Mormon mind control.

It is a good book.

With a clarity of language and vision unsurpassed in contemporary American prose, Steven Janiszewski's Assassination of Spiro Agnew takes us into a U.S. mazed with madness and Mormonism and all things Utah, a U.S. that was then and still is. Do we need a novel, even as brilliant as this one, about a young man on a divine mission to assassinate the Vice President because he is too liberal? Yes, now more than ever. Readers, welcome to a masterpiece.
