Earlier this month, I noted that Victor Davis Hanson, fellow Californian and a military historian at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, had been targeted in social media by writers associated with The Bulwark. His crime? Apparently, it was that Hanson had the temerity to write what he considered to be an even-handed review of President Donald Trump's first two years in office entitled The Case for Trump.  The attack inspired me to purchase the book, and share my thoughts on it with Legal Insurrection.

I have a confession to make before reviewing the latest book by conservative icon and author Michael Savage: I am not a big fan.  There is no denying that Savage is exceptionally smart and deeply passionate about this country, the U.S. Constitution, and conservative principles. On his radio show, his vitriolic and pessimistic take on subjects differs from my normally optimistic, humor-oriented view of politics and current events. I normally don't stay tuned in for very long when I alight upon his radio show, as Savage's tone can be a bit too bitter for my personal taste. However, his latest book, Stop Mass Hysteria: America's Insanity from the Salem Witch Trials to the Trump Witch Hunt, is a smart, engaging, and timely look at angry mobs and their historic consequences.
