I genuinely enjoy reading Piers's opinions on the economy, politics, celebrities and sports. That's why I have bought and avidly read all his diaries. He's a very insightful writer with a lovely sense of humour and endearing family values. I must admit there's a soft spot in my heart with Mister Morgan's name on it.However, his religious conversion to America as depicted in his last volume is as revealing as annoying. He goes on and on about the revolutionary days America is living since Obama first announces his democratic candidacy until he wins the November 4 presidential elections (his last diary entry). Nothing wrong with that. Everyone would pretty much agree with Piers - the last presidential election was crucial to the history of the US of A and, consequently, of the rest of the world. On the day that the western superpower realigned itself with its "land of opportunity and land of the free" mantra by electing an inspirational and charismatic black leader, whose middle name is Hussein, a new politcal chapter opened in world politics. However, what makes Piers somewhat annoying is how he claims from the beginning that America is a true democracy. Contrary to what he thinks, actually, America's electoral system is possibly one of the least democratic in the democratic world, wherein a president is elected by an electoral college rather than by popular choice, rendering some of the presidential elections outright undemocratic with candidates winning the popular vote but losing the collegiate vote and therefore the White House (e.g. Samuel Tilden, Grover Cleveland, Al Gore). How this makes the USA a true democracy is beyond me, but then this coming from someone whose staunch support throughout the book for the current (unelected) British Prime Minister verges on the nauseating is actually unsurprising.Furthermore, the way Piers gushes about America's unique qualities as opposed to Britain's faults - apparently the latter should learn from the former how to set an example on undisguised patriotism, third sector efficiency and heartfelt pride of other people's accomplishments - is wearisome and condescending. One only has to bear in mind that by the same three standards, so do the Portuguese think they have a lot to learn from the British and the Cape Verdians (probably) from the Portuguese. It's the mentality of those who in the face of a more powerful country are immediately thrown by an (un)justified complex of inferiority. And it's sad to see Piers falling into such a petty trap.Apart from that, Piers Morgan proves to be, once again, in good shape. He's an hymn to anyone who refuses to give up and be defeated. His self-effacing humour and his resolve to follow his (American) dreams are an inspiration, even if his revengeful tantrums make him sound a bit immature (e.g Jonathan Ross, etc). I look forward to the fourth volume of his life adventures and in the meantime I wish him all the best.
