Book Reviewer Selection Watch

Couldn't the NYT find someone better than John Dean to review Joe Wilson's book?

The laughably naked Wilson-cheerleading effort gets started right out of the gates with this opening sentence: "This is a riveting and all-engaging book."

Soon later:

"For those interested in the most vicious hatchet job inside the Beltway since my colleague in Richard Nixon's White House, the dirty trickster Charles W. Colson, copped a plea for defaming Daniel Ellsberg and his lawyer, that headline-grabbing story unfolds in the second half of the book."

Looks to be a judicious, even-keeled review, huh?
