Even the title of her new autobiography reflects her talent for reinvention.


WTF ? Is she the first writer to change the name of a book or have it changed by her publisher to suit different markets? Was JK Rowling showing her talent for reinvention when her American publisher changed Philosopher's Stone to Sorcerer's Stone ?

As for the neocon thing I agree with beyondbelief -- I have never heard her say anything particularly right wing. She is being paid by AEI. They wouldn't be my first choice of employer but I have the luxury of not being likely to end up with a knife in my chest when I go out in public. In any case removing religion from the world is not going to remove the dispute between the left and right of politics.

She gets my money.
