If you haven't read Al Franken's book sub-titled "A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right", do so. It's enlightening and confirms what many of us believe about the Right, they lie, spin and then lie about the spin.

But more, it's humorous. In fact he points to specific instances of the right lying and spinning and talks about it in a way that made me laugh out loud.

BTW, many of the examples of lies that Franken examines are the Right wing arguments (word for word) that we have seen on this board from some of our right wing visitors. And when challenged our visitors use the same tactics that Franken attributes to the right. Maybe it's genetic?!?

Another good book! Al doesn't do in-your-face comedy. It is subtle, but in written form it comes off more readily. I had a good time with that one. I love to hate Bill & Ann & the rest of the conservative idiots who lie for a living and provide their worshiping dullards with daily talking points.

I trully agree. It is just sad that most folks get caught up in the hyped up religious fervor and eat up the lies as if it were manna.

Many of the so-called right-wingers really do not care for true religious virtues...just providing lipservice to serve their hidden agenda of trully worshipping their god of interest---the almighty dollar!

I think I heard Rush "all drug addicts should be imprisoned or killed, except for me" Limbaugh sing that little ditty.

BTW, believing an argument that is specific and supported by fact, is far better believe an obviously broad and fuzzy argument that is unsupported by fact.

Book: 'Michael Moore Is a Big Fat Stupid White Man'
NewsMax.com

A just-released book takes on Michael Moore as never before. Its title screams "Michael Moore Is a Big Fat Stupid White Man."
And surprisingly, this book has been published by the same publisher who gave us Michael Moore's own runaway best seller "Stupid White Men."

Apparently, more than a few people want to take revenge on Michael Moore, and the timing couldn't be better – with the release this week of his "documentary" attack piece on George Bush, Fahrenheit 9/11.
Moore is so terrified by his detractors that he claims he has already hired a cabal of lawyers. He says he will sue Bush supporters who he thinks may be preparing to slander him.
Moore's hypocrisy is obvious. Slate editor Jack Shafer says, "Moore's hysterical, empty threats" to sue critics of his latest schlockumentary show that he "appears to believe in free speech only for himself."
One possible target for Moore's lawyers may be the publisher of his own book.
Moore's one-time publisher, ReganBooks, has produced a disturbing yet comical book that dismantles every cog of that propaganda machine marketed as Michael Moore.
David T. Hardy and Jason Clarke's "Michael Moore Is a Big Fat Stupid White Man" begins by unearthing his phony roots and goes right up to his latest "documentary." Check out NewsMax's Free Offer for this book – Click Here
Meet the Flint-drone: Everybody knows Moore is a blue-collar guy from Flint, Mich., right? That's how he always sells himself.
In reality, he was born and raised in the wealthy, lily-white town of Davison, Mich., the authors reveal. No wonder the clown prince of self-loathing developed such a complex about hating rich, stupid white males.
In a letter to Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times last year, Moore still listed his town as Flint. In fact, despite his proclamations that "capitalism is a sin" and "an evil system," he lives in a $1.9 million apartment in Manhattan and enjoys a $1.2 million summer home on Torch Lake in Michigan.
"¢ More on Moore and 'Fahrenheit 9/11'
It's clear that Michael Moore has gone off the deep end when even Democrats compare him to the Nazis' master of propaganda:
"¢ "Hollywood agent and Kerry supporter Tom Baer told me: 'Kerry should flee Moore's movie. It's Goebbels all over again." This quotation comes not from Ann Coulter or Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh but from a column in the Washington Post by Tina Brown, a queen of the liberal media establishment.
"¢ Christopher Hitchens, a contributor to such partisan publications as New Left Review and The Nation, writes for Slate: "'Fahrenheit 9/11' is a sinister exercise in moral frivolity, crudely disguised as an exercise in seriousness. It is also a spectacle of abject political cowardice masking itself as a demonstration of 'dissenting' bravery."
"¢ Andrew Sullivan, a former editor at the liberal New Republic: "Moore is beneath contempt."
