I've reviewed many terrible books before, but Bridie Clark's Because She Can is right on top of that pile. The title is fitting — this book was only published because Clark could.

Years of experience in the publishing industry nearly guaranteed her this book deal. The fact that she chose to rip off the bad-boss genre and exploit her time with now-ousted Judith Regan helped. Anyone is free to do something because they can. But that doesn't mean they should. This book should not have been published.

Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan quit the Edwards campaign. I don't blame them or judge them for "giving in." I can't imagine what the stress of a witch hunt must be like, even if they have been going on for centuries. I only wish them the best, and to one day have the power to fight things like this.

If you get a chance, check out their websites. Do yourself a favor — ignore their language if it offends you, brush up on your reading comprehension, and look for their real messages. You may learn something, and you may agree with them.
