Levant's "Shakedown" chosen as best political book

Ezra Levant's "Shakedown"  - the story of his publishing copies of the Mohammed illustrations as editor of Western Standard, was chosen the best political book of the last 25 years.

First off, I am pissed off that I never even heard of this competition before the winner was announced. 

Secondly, Levant looks like he is wearing a spray-on tan in this CBC pic:

As an aside, runner up John Ralston Saul said he was encouraged by the number of FIrst Nations writers who made it to the 12 finalists.
