Warning Sign Books: Political Edition
About a year ago I wrote about Warning Sign Books. That is, books that, if you find them on the shelf of a new acquaintance, should throw up a big flashing sign that says you should probably not get too intimate with this person until you have a chance to suss out their neuroses some more. Ayn Rand featured very prominently in my list, mostly because I think she's just about the worst and most harmful author of the 20th Century.

I would never see these are dealbreakers, but it might be a good sign that you're going to need to start thinking up a fake phone number to leave with them, or be prepared to gnaw your own arm off when you wake up in the morning and they're draped across it.

Anyway, it's an elastic sort of question, that you can lend as much or as little credence to as you like.

I just know, for me, there's not a chance that I'm ever voting for a Mormon whose favorite novel is Battlefield: Earth. And, just for me, trying to clarify that his favorite book is the Bible...doesn't really make it better.
