- A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right -

”Although I wrote this book in a spirit of dispassionate inquiry, I cannot expect my critics to respond in kind. My right-wing detractors will undoubtedly tell you that I’m ‘obnoxious,’ ‘smug,’ and a ‘clear and present threat to our national security.’ I will not stoop to dignify such calumny with a response, except to say that Condoleeza Rice should watch her mouth.” - Al Franken

“Al Franken, one of our “savviest satirists” (People), has been studying the rhetoric of the Right. He has listened to their cries of “slander,” “bias,” and even “treason.” He has examined the Bush administration’s policies of squandering our surplus, ravaging the environment, and alienating the rest of the world. He’s even watched Fox News. A lot.

And, in this fair and balanced report, Al bravely and candidly exposes them all for what they are: liars. Lying, lying liars.

Al destroys the liberal media bias myth by doing what his targets seem incapable of: getting his facts straight. Using the Right’s own words again them, he takes on the pundits, the politicians, and the issues, including:

Ann Coulter: “The reigning diva of the hysterical Right. Or, rather, the hysterical diva of the reigning Right.”

The 2000 Election: “Bush was lying throughout the 2000 campaign. And, unlike Gore, Bush’s lies weren’t even true.”

The War on Terror: including the Bush administration’s top-secret pre-9/11 initiative, “Operation Ignore.”

Come with Al as he confronts Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Paul Wolfowitz, Karl Rove, and other right-wing scoundrels. And enjoy the adventures of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and your favorite right-wing hawks who never went to war as they serve on John Kerry’s Vietnam gunboat in Al’s short story “Operation Chickenhawk: Episode One.”

Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always funny, "Lies" sticks it to the most right-wing administration in memory, and to the right-wing media hacks who do its bidding.”
