I'm not positive on whether or not Dan Savage will be successful in his "from the inside out" reworking of the Republican party, but I do like his idea. As far as the writing goes, you could tell he was a sex columnist. His style was blunt and had an extremely large voice, but he pretty much had to with this topic coming from his point of view. I really liked the scenes at the Republican get-togethers, he painted the tension in a way that made me feel it. I'm wondering if the class thinks that Savage's sex column style added or took away from the piece.
