 A Decisive Book Review  

“The Premature Obituary of America’s Longest Dying Political Movement” –R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.  

Conservatives have an irrefutable history of resurrecting from the dead; and appear  to be on the verge of yet another historic comeback with the 2010 mid-term elections looming on the very near horizon.  Emmett Tyrrell Jr., legendary founder and Editor-in-Chief of the American Spectator, gives a riveting and well-researched account of the last 40 plus years of the conservative movement, in his insightful book, After the Hangover.  He orders a rigorously lucid prescription for conservatives to take to recapture America’s Throne.  In perfect prose, Tyrrell recounts the key heroes, heroines and villains of the era and highlights the fractious in-party fighting that is the kryptonite of the conservative movement.   

Pros:  After the Hangover is well-researched and provides a clear and definitive history of the conservative movement. Far from being a dry textbook affair, the book is brought to life through Tyrrell’s often stinging quips on the diverse key players and cultural climate of the period.  

Cons:  After the Hangover is not light reading material as it is well seasoned with many obscure and culturally iconic words.  For example, the word ‘Kulturesmog; a term coined by Tyrrell is used to describe liberal’s and their liberal manipulations of truths to the effect that this manipulation alters and pollutes their minds, preventing them from understanding any evidence that contradicts their points of views.
