Regnery's Pro-Confederacy Book Enjoys Spectacularly Bad Timing
For some idea of how far out of it conservatives are at this point, take a look at The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War, which esteemed rightwing publisher Regnery chose to release last week. Among the information Regnery will "bet your history professor never told you": "The Confederate States of America might have helped the Allies win World War I sooner," "What Abraham Lincoln might have said -- if he let the South go peaceably," and "If there had been no Civil War, the South would have abolished slavery peaceably." Regnery recommends H.W. Crocker III's book to "everyone who is tired of liberal self-hatred that vilifies America's greatest heroes," who will delight to find the volume "under his Christmas tree." Especially if there's a Nigra President a-comin' in January! Also available via the Conservative Book Club, which calls it a "joyful myth-busting rebel yell."
