Two bios reviewed by two conservatives

Fred Thompson released his autobiography recently, and Zev Chafets has released a new biography of Rush Limbaugh. Both books were reviewed by conservatives, and both reviewers were unhappy.

Louise Radnofsky on Thompson:
Fred Thompson’s new book, “Teaching the Pig to Dance,” is so free of moral, political and personal revelations that we’re reading it as a hint that the former actor, senator and presidential contender isn’t planning to run again for office.

David Frum on Chafets:
It might seem ominous for an intellectual movement to be led by a man who does not think creatively, who does not respect the other side of the argument and who frequently says things that are not intended as truth. But neither Limbaugh nor Chafets is troubled.
