Dispatches from Bitter America


Dispatches from Bitter America: A Gun Toting, Chicken Eating Son of a Baptist's Culture War Stories
Dispatches from Bitter America by Todd Starnes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

With a little tongue in cheek, a little bite your tongue, a little imagination, a little agitation, a little make believe, and a little “you can’t make this stuff up,” author Todd Starnes leaves no sacred cows off the table (metaphorically speaking of course).

This book will take you from sentimental to nonsensical, from Christmas to Kwanzaa, from barbeque to Barack Obama, from the food police to the thought police, from DC to the flyover-states, from the schoolhouse to the House of God, with a few stops in between.

A country that knows how to smoke a pork butt is a country worth defending. Friends, our nation is as diverse as the meat it smokes. In the North they smoke hams. In the South we smoke pork. In Texas they smoke beef. In California they smoke pot. Barbecue is not just food; it’s a state of mind.

Todd Starnes says he’s a “gun-toting, chicken-eating son of a Baptist,” but according to the President of the United States, he’s just a bitter American.

If you’re politically left of center, you need to read this book. If you’re to the right, you just gotta read this, seriously folks.

Bitter Americans? Hardly.
Blessed Americans? Absolutely.
