More Praise for ‘Too Dumb to Fail’

Greetings from Des Moines, Iowa! Here’s a quick update on the book launch…

Salon has posted an excerpt of Too Dumb to Fail’s chapter on Con$ervative ScamPACs. Check it out!

Also, the Buffalo News has penned a terrific review of Too Dumb to Fail. Here’s a snippet:

Lewis writes with panache when he notes, “Today, the GOP is a traveling circus of empty-headed talking point reciters, rookie politicians who’ve never managed anything in their lives, media clowns like Donald Trump, professionally outraged shout-fest talking heads, and so on.”

This is a run-on sentence so deliciously true that pundits can’t help but run with it.

The Weekly Standard Reviews ‘Too Dumb to Fail’

The Weekly Standard has penned a terrific review of Too Dumb to Fail. Here’s an excerpt:

I had thought that Matt Lewis’s new book about the conservative Republican future, Too Dumb To Fail, had a title that was accurate but a bit ahead of its time. Then, on the eve of the book’s publication, Sarah Palin endorsed the Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump, with a rambling “speech” that thoroughly earned a New York Daily News front page headline “I’m With Stupid”. When real life proves your point more than any publicity campaign possibly could, it’s time for concerned conservatives to see what Lewis teaches us.
