This will be my second nice post about Joe Klein. I actually liked Primary Colors. One thing it did for me was give me my first inkling that the elite pundit class in Washington was wired differently than me. When it came out, I got the sense that they all thought it was some vicious attack on the Clintons, a scathingly mean parody. I thought it was kind of an affectionate parody, really, not totally without bite but not vicious either. I remember thinking "if this is what these people think is vicious..." at the time.
Having said that, Klein engaged in some "rules don't apply to me" behavior regarding his identity as the author, but I actually thought the book itself was okay.
...and, oh, hey Blogger let me post again. yay blogger.
