OUCH! Now that's going to leave a mark.If mediocrity can ever be said to shine, then it shines from these pages.
The writer, though a journalist, has no literary ability whatsoever. He writes entirely in clichés, there is not a single arresting thought in over 400 pages, wit and even humor are entirely absent, and he seems unable to use a metaphor, almost always tired to begin with, without mixing it ("We are likely to succumb on this if they get on their high horses and cry foul"). He has no powers of analysis and no sense of history; there is no plumbing his shallows. Unleashing Arrogance, Complacency, and Mediocrity

"... no plumbing his shallows.'
Excellent comment applicable as well to the Intersectionalists previously known as the cohort of cuckoos.
