Explaining Republican Fears, like the Deather thing

Adam Cadre, who is always interesting, has a neat essay here to explain why some Republicans seem to have such outlandish fears of Obama, among other things.

I have mentioned Cadre before, regarding his excellent novel Ready, Okay! and his short story December.


  1. I can't say that I was wildly impressed by the argument in this particular essay, but I followed the links back to his main site and I spent a good hour reading through Calendar Patterns and some of the links within it. A lot of interesting criticism, strangely enough, we tend to dislike similar things, but then he dislikes even MORE things that I found enjoyable. Seems to have a bit of a bug up his ass about science fiction in general. But interesting.

  2. Did you read any of his fiction? He makes good characters.
