Search DU for a favorite subject. (Like I just did with Veggietales.) See both what DU thinks of it and how far back you can go.

Think of something - anything - you enjoy as a conservative. Then go over to DU and search for posts and threads about it. See what DU's take on it is and how far back in the archives you can find it.

Has anyone read any of Vince Flynn's novels?
Advertisements [?]They're political intrigue...with a character, Mitch Rapp, who's a counterterrorist/assassin with the CIA. Flynn's latest book is "Memorial Day", in which members of Al-Quida have gained possession of a nuclear device to take out Washington, D.C.

Flynn's books are so good...but I have a bit of remorse each time I read one of them. Methinks Vince Flynn is a bit of a right winger, in the Tom Clancy mode.

1. I've read all six, and
Flynn IS a right winger. All you have to do is read "Term Limits" to know that.

Each book advocates violence instead of negotiation, and is set up so that negotiating is actually the stupidest imaginable option. In "Memorial Day" Rapp shoots guys in the head to intimidate others, and people who protest that are mocked as stupid and naive - because the plot only leaves one option.

Limbaugh loves Flynn's books, which should tell you something. I read them for the same reason that I've read conservative pundits - to know what the other guy is thinking.

2. Oh, God. Limbaugh likes him...
Now I feel slimy.

In his latest one, he has one of the characters going off on the Patriot Act. It's obvious Flynn supports it.
