Progress of the Great Hugh Hewitt Book Giveaway

Filed under: Books,Politics,Principled Pragmatism — Patterico @ 4:55 pm

The great Hugh Hewitt book giveaway is still open to a couple more takers. I think I have done a better job persuading people to buy it for themselves than I have in finding takers for the free offer. So far Iconic Midwesterner, David M., MaDr, and Kevin Murphy have all said they will buy it on their own.

So far, it sounds like the only takers for the free offer are Gene, Justin Levine, and Chadster. I have excused Justin from any obligation to read the book immediately, though I have asked him to read the first chapter right away (I’m assuming he’ll get hooked).

The Angry Clam has not responded to my request whether he wants a free copy. [UPDATE: The Clam claims he has no time to read this simple, straightforward 220-page book. Demands of law school and such.]

Spoons indicated that he would probably not give it a fair reading. Okay, Spoons — how about giving it an unfair reading and agreeing to debate the contents?

The book is on its way to Gene. Chadster and Justin, e-mail me your home addresses.

James Hess says he already has it, but suggests that I buy copies for libraries. Sorry, James, but my offer is intended to stimulate internet discussion. I do hope that the people who buy it for themselves, as well as those who get it free from me, will return to discuss the principles of the book. That’s what this is all about.

  1. Exam period- I have a trial to prepare for on Tuesday, followed by a paper and a particularly nasty final early in the week after that.

    I don’t want to even think about adding to the distractions.

    I think the Pew exit poll surveys, like CNN’s, were a bit weak because the 3 axis multi-variate analysis is NOT done. see my blop post /1101418787#380078

    Considering 3 Bush positions: pro-War, pro-Tax Cuts (econ, spending), pro-God (morals, family, abortion, gay marriage), there are 8 combinations. There’s no good way to know how many fit within each combination, but I note the importance to Bush of those who only support 1 of his policies:
    pro-War, anti-Cuts, anti-God = Liberal Hawks;
    anti-War, anti-Cuts, pro-God = pro-life type Catholics, especially Hispanics.

  3. Why not send a copy to your buddy (and mine) Tony S. back in Austin? He promised to do some posting on my blog (iconicmidwest.blogspot.com) as The Grand Poobah. He’s a much better Republican than I am.

    If you know Tony, then do I know you?

  5. I’m Tony’s buddy Rich, the big Parthenon Huxley fan. You might have heard of me.

    If you ever made it out to DC to visit Tony while we were at Catholic University then maybe we met. I didn’t make it to Austin for Tony & Lindsey’s wedding though. I still regret not hearing Javelin Boot live.

    Ah well.

  6. Tom Grey,

    I don’t think I can afford the shipping.

  7. OK — I appreciate the idea. Will try to contrbute a bit if I think I add something.
