    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 Co 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 ...

    I would recommend this book to intellectual conservatives so that they simply haveammo to disassociate themselves from the neo cons I actually respect true conservative thought and this administration was not it At all And Franken gives a funny, sometimes enraging, flogging of the neo con media.It s a great book I think, however, it preaches to the choir since the person who would read this is a liberal to begin with in the first place.And he DESTROYS Ann Coulter and Bill O Reillyth I would recommend this book to...

    This very funny but extremely serious book goes after the deliberate falsehoods perpetrated by the right wing on liberals As you may know, the Fox Network went after Franken for trademark infringement because he used the phrase fair and balanced The judge threw out the suit as completely ludicrous and made several trenchant comments about the inability of the Fox executives to recognize satire when they saw it.Harvard University gave Franken a fellowship to basically do whatever he wanted, This very funny but extremely serious book goes after the deliberate falsehoods perpetrated by the right wing on liberals As you may know, the Fox Network went after Franken for trademark infringement because he used the phrase fair and balanced The judge threw out the suit as completely ludicrous and made several trenchant comments about the inability of the Fox executives to recognize satire when they saw it.Harvard University gave Franken a fellowship to basically do whatever he wanted, but demurred at his idea of having Harvard students write his son s college application Franken finally hit upon the idea of having a group of students do research for his book They bought the idea.His first target is Ann Coulter...

    Why I love this book 1 Definitely one of the funniest book titles I ve ever seen2 Remember when, for years after 9 11, so many media and entertainment figures held themselves back from criticizing Bush administration Al broke the silence quite a bit with this book, which was basically a bullshit cry heard round the country After that it seemed to be wayok for others to start speaking out You may think he s too moderate but he s pretty clever at ca...

    I actually listened to Al Franken read this on Audio CD, and I loved it The advantage here is that Al plays all the quotes by the people he s bashing with a littlecontext and he himself is just very funny how he reads.I know the subtitle s supposed to be a joke, but this book is WAY MORE fair and balanced than anything by bona fide Ass Holes capitalized like Bill O Reilly and An...

    Franken has a quasi Socratic disingenuousness It s not quite that he claims ignorance while exposing the ignorance of others What Franken claims is that he s a comedian, in contrast with the apparently serious political commentators he skewers And he really is funny And sharp I laughed out loud at Loving America the Al Franken Way, a grab bag of facets of America, rated on a good bad weird scale But often Franken sounds deadly serious In the same chapter, responding to the claim that li Franken has a quasi Socratic disingenuousness It s not quite that he claims ignorance while exposing the ignorance of others What Franken claims is that he s a comedian, in contrast with the apparently serious political commentators he skewers And he really is funny And sharp I laughed out loud at Loving America the Al Franken Way, a grab bag of facets of America, rated on a good bad weird scale But often Franken sounds deadly serious In the same chapter, responding to the claim that liberals train our children to criticize America, not celebrate it, he says, To a four year old, everything Mommy does is wonderful and anyone who criticizes Mommy is bad Grown up love means actually understanding what you love, taking the good with the bad, and helping your loved one grow It s a go...

    I hate to bring a heavy hand to a snowball fight, but this book is actually important to me You know how some books act as landmarks in your life, either as a reader or as an acutal liver of the world outside the window and the page This is one of mine.I bought it years ago with trembling glee, as the post 9 11 world of politics had become my insomniac obsession and I was in need of not only some rhetorical weaponry but an insightful, informed take on what I knew in my bones as so many of us I hate to bring a heavy hand to a snowball fight, but this book is actually important to me You know how some books act as landmarks in your life, either as a ...

    Al Franken is to be commended for exposing Fox Television and its supposed news commentators in this book which might be profitably read alongside a viewing of the documentary film, Outfoxed I read it at the request of a friend At the time, most of it was above my head as I do not watch television Since then, however, thanks ...
