The Apocalyse Must Be Near

Fox News head Roger Ailes wrote a blurb for MSNBC star Rachel Maddow’s new book, DriftThe Unmooring of American Military Power.

Ailes wrote in part:  “People who like Rachel will love the book.  People who don’t will get angry, but aggressive debate is good for America.  Drift is a book worth reading.”

I score this one for Ailes.  He knows his blurb won’t boost book sales among his Fox true believers, let alone change any minds, but he also knows that Rachel is a nice person, who will now feel that she owes him one.  Roger won’t hesitate to collect when the moment is right.
