Marty Beckerman is the Greatest Writer in the History of Literature?!?

For this Friday, December 11th we’d like to share the joy of Marty Beckerman, who was recently praised by talking head extraordinaire Andrew Sullivan for no less feat than, thinking.

So we’re going to give away copies of Marty Beckerman’s Dumbocracy: Adventures with the Loony Left, the Rabid Right, and Other American Idiots to 25 people (or more) who tweet the following on Friday, December 11th:

DUMBOCRACY author @martybeckerman is the greatest writer in the history of literature?!? @disinfo #martybeckerman http://bit.ly/8QZ6N3

Just to know what you’re getting into, below is an excerpt of Dumbocracy. The more you tweet the above phrase this Friday actually will increase your chance of mindmelding with Marty Beckerman himself.

So spread the joy of Marty over Twitter on Friday, we will be watching…

Still not convinced? Check out MartyBeckerman.com and Marty’s musings on the Daily Beast.

    The problem with Mr. “I’m Not an Expert” (no shit) is one of equivalency.

    This little screed advances the notion that both of these sides are EQUALLY batshit. If the last 8 years haven’t proved to you that the rightwing has gone COMPLETELY off the cliff, then you haven’t been paying attention.

    Yeah, the left has people who are extremists (Woo! I’d rather be naked than wear fur!), but really, they can’t hold a candle to the giant bucket of crazy (and sometimes actually treasonous behavior) that’s on display over in Beck O’Reilly Breibart Savage Limbaugh Inhofe Vitter Palin Bachmann Phelps Armey Cheney Yoo Dobbs Addington Boehner Goldberg Malkin Dobson Gonzales Delay Santorum Jindal Hannity Flake Buchanan Foley Blunt Foxx Schmidt Coulter World.

    And those are mild compared to some of the wingnuts like millionaire wife-beater & neo-nazi James Cummings who was sporting “dirty bomb” making materials before the FBI got ahold of his crazy ass. Or white supremacist William Krar who had 500,000 rounds of ammunition, 65 pipe bombs and remote-control briefcase bombs, almost two pounds of deadly sodium cyanide and the means to convert that into a bomb designed to kill thousands who was caught on his way to murder as many people as he could in NYC. Or Holocaust Museum shooter James von Brunn. Or Demetrius Van Crocker who tried to purchase C-4 and sarin nerve gas that he intended to detonate in the nation’s capital because of “those dirty Jews”.

    Or doctor murderers like Eric Rudolph or Paul Hill who kill because Randall Terry tells them to.

    And we haven’t even gotten into the Christian Reconstructionists like Gary North, Admundsen Jr., or RJ Rushdooney, not to mention “Joel’s Army” Dominionist cult-leader Todd Bentley.

    There really is no effective, or comparable equivalent on the left. Sorry, but there just isn’t.
