Read full description of the books:
I’ve been a registered Democrat since high school and many of my values are liberal, but this was awful. This book is an example of atrocious holier-than-thou thinking, with humor that is meaner than it is funny, and blind where it should be practical. It’s propaganda for people who already believe the cause and contributes nothing to discussion. It’s every bit as spiteful and unreasonable to its opposition as the vilified super-conservatives. It makes me wonder if people like Franken and Ann Coulter aren’t in this for money, as championship of polar values gets them easy praise and tons of cash. I found the epilogue, about the Democrats taking Congress and righting all the wrongs of the country to be the most amusing part of the book. When we actually saw how little the Democratic Congress (which I helped with my vote into office) did, it was like one final nail, heavier than all the others, driven through this paperback. Now that they control the presidency and both houses of Congress, with Franken in their company, maybe some of his righteous prophecy can come true. Until then, do yourself a favor and pick up an informative book like Cobra II or All The Shah’s Men instead, books intended to give you information so you can form your own opinions. Mean spirited humor meant to demean those we disagree with only hurts national discourse, no matter which “other” is being attacked.
