a book that tackles the political landscape in the United States from a cultural perspective, focusing more specifically on the peculiar blend of patriotism and hostility towards government that has dominated American society since the Reagan Revolution

Before acknowledging your accomplishments, be sure to give ME props for the interpretive strategy:

**"Overall, I think that what is throwing me off has something to do with the way in which the old definitions of Democrat and Republican have been--in my opinion--muddled over the course of the last 20 years. Before Reagan, Christianity and religion were typically associated with the DEMOCRATIC party (e.g. Jimmy Carter the baptist; J.F.K. the catholic; etc.), but the neo-cons somehow hijacked religion and turned it into a REPUBLICAN tenet in order to recruit more voters."

**"Part of ongoing research on how the american POLITICAL landscape is reflected in art/culture

....shit, why aren't we just collaborating on this thing?
