By DENIS BOYLES [Claremont Review of Books] – Greg Gutfeld takes in-your-face polemic to a new level altogether in The Joy of Hate: How to Triumph over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage.
Specifically, the level he takes it to is one of unprecedented smartness. The conservative point-of-view has been muddied and muffled by a polite preoccupation with perceived unfairness: “See? The New York Times is biased!”
Gutfeld got over that long ago. He’s made his enemies into his stooges. He ignores their hambone outrage, picks up a board in the form of a well-made paragraph, and just whacks them with it. Twice—once coming in, once on his way out. That’s how you triumph over a whiner. He’s like Moe, with brains.
