Book Critic Quote of the Day

Matt Taibbi, as part of the Supreme Court of Assholedom Series, on "Tiger Mother" Amy Chua:

"Hilariously, she tells reviewers and reporters now that her book was intended as “self-deprecating memoir” of the sort that David Sedaris would write. You know, if David Sedaris was a heterosexual Asian woman with no sense of humor who engaged in the systematic psychological torture of his children and then bragged about it in a luridly self-congratulating, race-baiting best-seller."
She was voted an asshole, 7-0.
