Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and others on Cass Sunstein

I don’t necessarily agree with everything Cass Sunstein writes (see previously), but the blurbs on the back cover make me want to buy his new book, Conspiracy Theories and Other Dangerous Ideas.

Here they are:

“[Cass Sunstein is] the most evil man, the most dangerous man in America.” — Glenn Beck

“[I]sn’t it obvious? Cass Sunstein is the Devil!” —

“Cass Sunstein [is] the very, very strange Obama pick for an early ‘czar’ position who wowed us with his numerous bizarre claims including the wacko belief that animals should have the right to sue in court, that hunting shoudl be banned as genocide, and that pet ownership is akin to ‘slavery.'” — Sarah Palin

“Obama’s Regulatory Czar poses the same threat as Hitler’s Josef Mengele.” — @Futureicon

“[Y]ou remember Cass Sunstein, this is a guy that wants to ban hunting and force sterilizations and oh, we should all be presumed to be organ donors, etcetera etcetera.” — Sean Hannity

“Cass Sunstein is evil, pure evil.” —

Let it never be said that Sunstein can’t take criticism. (Thanks to Jacob Levy for originally bringing this to my attention.)
