I've never been able to read Philip Roth's novels because I cannot stand his navel gazing (or should I say penis-gazing?) characters. They are, for me, profoundly uninteresting. Perhaps the problem with his writing is his thinking. Why do I say this? Because Roth unloads about politics in Spiegel interview, and pretty much highlights everything that's infantile and narcissistic about liberal thinking with regard to the Bush administration and the upcoming elections.
She goes into specifics, fisking the interview. This is a great takedown of a pompous jerk.
