Excerpt from Broken Government

Salon has put up an excerpt of Broken Government by John Dean, which comes out tomorrow. Definitely worth a read, even if you do have to click through the add. A tiny taste, emphasis mine:

Having watched the GOP’s evolution as it embraced the radicalism of authoritarian conservatism, slowly ceding control to its most strident faction, the authoritarian conservatives, I can no longer recognize the party. These new conservative leaders have not only sought to turn back the clock, but to return to a time before the Enlightenment when there were no clocks. As former vice president Al Gore nicely stated it, the Republicans have undertaken an “assault on reason.”
