JC vs AMC: Battle of the sucks?
It’s only fair. I’m buying “Dog Days” this week and planning to review it soon. I had several complaints (and snaps) from my previous review of everyone’s favorite slutern Jessica Cutler's oral opus "Washingtonienne." Needless to say for Ana Marie Cox of Wonkette fame, I am setting the bar a little higher . This may be a mistake as most of the reviews I have read, including this little gem from Newsweek, say it's utter crap.
Previous Biases: I have already taken the over/under of 3 (over) for mentions of the Palm (does anyone even go there anymore?). I also predict the “DC is full of ugly people” to be in the first 10 pages, and many agonizing reminders of what happens when dorks try to write about what the cool kids do. Oh, and the plot seems to suck. Of all the years of AMC rolling around in DC politiki, all she can really come up with is Washingtonienne meets Wag the Dog meets Devil Wears Prada-lite? At least JC had many, many first hand slut-scapdes she could write about. Despite AMC’s starry tats, I doubt she has much more for a creative muse than SATC on TBS.
But, look at me judging a book by its, err, you know. Let me get back to you on JC vs. AMC.
