Aah, that was a piece of crap, shrugs Michael; I'm starting a new novel.
What's it about? asks the friend.
This weekend, says Michael.
What was the other novel about?
For some reason, that scene came to mind as I read this:
Dana Milbank recently wrote how a Fox News star has really “captured the moment," before posing the question: “Is Glenn Beck America?”
Milbank, who only had about 750 words to tackle that question in his Washington Post column, is now writing a book on the conservative radio and television host: "Tears of a Clown." And he’s already started researching.
“I’ve signed up for the elite membership on GlennBeck.com,” Milbank told POLITICO.
