Frank -- a young-looking 39-year-old in wire rims and a button-down blue shirt that may or may not have come from his favorite thrift store -- is standing by a bookcase in the basement of his newly acquired Tenleytown house, talking several miles a minute.
Frank's politics are deeply contrarian, at least in the current intellectual climate, and they're calculated to offend Democrats and Republicans alike.
In "Kansas," Frank sets out to prove that the noisy, seemingly endless American culture war -- fought over such issues as Hollywood depravity and the alleged disparity between mainstream values and those of cultural elites -- is a giant smoke screen that clouds the real cause of Middle America's distress.

 Amazon.com: What's the Matter with Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America: Books: Thomas Frank   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
This, according to author Thomas Frank, is a pretty self-defeating phenomenon, given that the policies of the Republican Party benefit the wealthy and powerful at the great expense of the average worker.
Frank, a native Kansan, points out that by forgoing a class language focus, Democrats have allowed issues such as abortion, gun-rights, teaching evolution in schools, and school prayer, combined with Republican hucksterism, to give formerly strong liberal areas to the conservatives.
Frank's thesis is that the NeoCon's have aimed the working class' rage at their oppressors away from the "elite" who are actually responsible for their economic disempowerment (Big Business), towards the "liberal elite" (Hollywood, Academia, Science), who disagree with their cultural values (anti-homosexuality, anti-abortion, no separation between Church and State).

 What's the Matter with Kansas, by Thomas Frank
With his acclaimed wit and acuity, Thomas Frank turns his eye on what he calls the "thirty-year backlash" -- the populist revolt against a supposedly liberal establishment.
Frank answers them by examining pop conservatism -- the bestsellers, the radio talk shows, the vicious political combat -- and showing how our long culture wars have left us with an electorate far more concerned with their leaders' "values" and down-home qualities than with their stands on hard questions of policy.
A heartland populist, Frank is hilariously funny on what makes us red-staters different from blue-staters (not), and he actually knows evangelical Christians, antiabortion activists, gun-nuts, and Bubbas.
