The Ever-Expanding Empire of Rudeness:
So there's the new book, The Rude Pundit's Almanack:

Featuring mostly never-blogged new stuff and already called "the first must-buy dirty-fucking-hippie book of 2011" over at the Daily Kos and "provocative, hilarious, and weirdly elegant" by Laura Ellen Scott in the online journal Prick of the Spindle, you can purchase the book in paperback or electronic form for now only through its publisher, up-and-coming small press OR Books.

(It's not a stretch to say that the book is being sold the same way that Radiohead is selling its latest album. [And that remark is about sales techniques, not qualitative comparisons.])

And then there's this: the Rude Pundit has joined up with writer and comic Jeff Kreisler for a new online radio show/podcast at the Progressive Radio Network. Cheater and the Rude (which is funny because it sounds like BJ and the Bear or Josie and the Pussycats) premieres its quirky, half-hour little ass this coming Thursday, March 3 at 8 pm.

In these times of upheaval, we could use a hot injection of raw rudeness.
