Cotton candy sandwiches, on rye with dijon mustard — Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America's Class War is a tray of them. Joe Bageant's prose is polished, with sound bites of tasty humor and sharp imagery ... until he goes off on another mean-spirited, self-contradictory rant. The book feels like a patchwork quilt of previously published online commentary, talk-radio overheard from the next room as someone randomly changes stations. Not a nutritious diet, whether or not one agrees with the author's politics.
