My manager at the library is a liberal and knows that I am not. A few years ago, we had a somewhat heated discussion - she was worried because she heard congress was trying to reinstate the draft. She was going on and on about "the republicans" and "their war" until I told her that it was one of her guys who had introduced the bill. We amicably agreed to never speak about politics shortly after that.
It didn't come as much of a surprise when I was given a stern lecture about how I was expected to equally order from both sides of the political spectrum when I first started choosing new audiobooks for the library (a task referred to as "collection development" by those of us in the biz). I do what they pay me to do and order the newest titles with complete impartiality. (But not too long ago, prior to the yearly Big Weed, I could have taken comparative photos of the multiple copies of Dude, Where's My Country and of the solitary copy of Slander. A case of "partisanship for me, but not for thee"?)
So, this morning as I sat staring at the computer screen debating on the newest offering from Michael Moore, I was slightly comforted by the fact that it costs $17 and the new one from Bill O'Reilly costs $32.
And, yes. I ordered them both.
(oh, and by the way? Barack Hussein Obama's "plan to renew America's promise" is due out in September. I totally called that one, didn't I?)
