Michael Smerconish: Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right: American Life in Columns
“Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right: American Life in Columns” is the title of Michael Smerconish’s latest speech and was inspired by his book of the same name.
The SiriusXM radio host, CNN television host, and Sunday Inquirer columnist recently published his seventh manuscript. “Clowns” is a compilation of 100 of Smerconish’s more memorable newspaper columns, each with a new afterword, drawn from the 1,047 he published between 2001 and 2016.
Readers, listeners and viewers have come to expect no less from the Independent pundit whose common sense often sets him apart from today’s media provocateurs. His optimistic outlook, derived from his political research and unique experiences, is a message for our times: that the American political divide has been greatly exaggerated by those with a motivation to perpetuate polarization.
