Chris Matthews, according to the Christian Science Monitor, is one of the most amazing book critics in the world. Unlike most book reviewers, Matthews has the rather unique ability to review books before they are even written. I only wish I were half as talented as Mr. Matthews.
The main criticism that Matthews makes, after ridiculing Palin's ability to even read a book, much less write one, is that she is using a collaborator to help her with her book.
Now, I am not even close to being a fan of Sarah Palin. Her planned book is not one that would appeal to me in the least - but, unlike Super Critic, Chris Matthews, I realize that does not necessarily mean that Palin is writing a "bad" book.
What I find most ridiculous is that Matthews has such a selective memory when it comes to politicians hiring "collaborators" to help with their books. Did he forget that Hillary Clinton had "help" writing her prize winning It Takes a Village or that very, very few politicians write their own books? Barry Goldwater's famous The Conscience of a Conservative was ghost written but Goldwater got all the credit for the book. There are even rumors that John Kennedy did not write his famous book, Profiles in Courage, and that President Obama may not have written his books without help from a ghost.
This is simply the way that it is done. Politicians are not writers and the vast majority of them on both sides of the aisle do not do their own grunt work when it comes to writing a book.
Get over yourself, Chris. You are not a Super Critic - you, sir, are a rather common Political Hack.
