I downloaded "The Lost Cause" by Edward Pollard after hearing the term thrown about frequently over the past few years, with an eye toward reading it. I want to see if "Lost Cause" is being correctly used by the various pundits and writers who seem so fond of it. And I have to say, "The Lost Cause" is a hefty book at 760 pages or so, so it's a decent time commitment to get through it. Has anyone here ever actually read the book? If you have and want to give us your thoughts, I'd be interested.
