Al Franken, "one of our savviest satirists" (People), takes on the issues, the politicians, and the pundits in one of the most anticipated books of the year. For the first time since his own classic Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiotand Other Observations, Al Franken trains his subversive wit directly on the contemporary political scene. Now, the "master of political humor" (Washington Times) destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, and exposes how the Right shamelessly tries to deceive the rest of us. No one is spared as Al uses the Right's own words against them. Not the Bush administration and their rhetorical hypocrisy. Not Ann Coulter and her specious screeds. Not the new generation of talk-radio hosts, and not Bill O'Reilly, Roger Ailes, and the entire Fox network. This is the book Al Franken fans have been waiting for (and his foes have been dreading). Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always funny, Liesis sure to become the most talked about book of political humor in 2003 and beyond.

If you are a conservative, read this book and learn as I did. If you are a liberal, read this book and learn as I did. So, how many authors, especially politically inclined authors, use 14 Harvard students to check facts in their book. Well, this one did. It saddened me to read all the shenanigans that were revealed (I had never investigated) in this book. They guys you thought were at least okay, like President Bush and President Bush. Were not okay. They screwed things up for their own benefit and the enriching of their friends. Maybe I should join the liars club so I can get rich.

A must read for anyone who believes the "leftist liberals" ever controlled media content. Aside from hoisting several conservative propagandists on their own petards, Franken's inimitable sense of humor provides plenty of chuckles. But don't let that fool you, Franken also looses his tongue from his cheek to provide pointed political and social commentary.
