Al Franken has come a long way from his SNL days and he (and Team Franken) have put together a coherent, informational and sometimes amusing rebuttal to the Right.

Great Book. Funny, well researched and it must be true or Al Franken would have been sued by now.

An excellent and well-documented book. Franken writes with detail and documents his accusations well. Good read - but nothing new for those of us who read and follow the news.

I loved this book! This book is what got me hooked on Al Franken as an author. He brings the cold hard facts in a very humoruous way. As long as you are not a die-hard republican, you'll enjoy this book.

Easy reading and funny. And enlightening. Who could spend as much time as "Team Franken" did seeking out these liars? You might NOT want to read this if you are a fan of Bill O'Reilly, but you should! VOTE FOR FRANKEN IN WISCONSIN!!!

Al Franken, one of our 'savviest satirists' 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 against them, he takes on the pundits, the politicians, and the issues.

A great book or gift. Is our government truthful about current issues facing our nation? Al Franken speaks on:

Weapons of Mass Destruction
Homeland Security
Patriotism
The Bush Tax Cut
The No Spin Zone
The Environment

Are you sure that you are informed enough on these issues? If not read this book.

Even though I am a fairly apolitical conservative Dem. I still loved the book. It explained some things that I thought were true but did not know where to look for confirmation.

This is a bit dated, but the humor is still good. Al has achieved a lot since with his first close election to the MN Senate seat and then his re-election. Too bad he has to be such a straight arrow and refrain from using his gift for using satire to point out the fallacies for the Lying Liars who are still at it.

"Lies . . ." is the TRUTH! Al Franken (now the junior Senator from Minnesota) gives a funny and objective look at the neo-cons and ultra-conservatives, including Ann Coulter, Cheney, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwel, Bush, O'Reilly and Hannity. If you can, get your republican acquaintences to read it!

Very Funny!!!

Al Franken has a way of lending levity to any topic - even, or should I say - especially, politics. He reveals a serious message in a very humorous manner.

Meh. Some funny parts, but it moved too slowly to keep my attention.

Nit-picky really. Who cares that Ann Coulter confused her accaintance with him. There are some good points in the book, but focusing on some of the minute details the way this book did just seems desparate.

A very funny and interesting read from the left. I think even conservatives will enjoy.

Classic Franken... Honest and funny...

a funny book. Franken tells stories about meeting right wing pundits and the riduculous things that are said. He does get political and the things he says are probably true they are still difficult to read.

A great balance of truth tempered with humor, Franken tells it like it is.

What a hypocrite Al Franken is. He does all the things he knocks others for doing. And calling someone else a liar doesn't make it so. And yet he doesn't seem to think Clinton lied...

Is it lying to make up details for the sake of humor?

Well, I guess for a book about lying, how can you believe the author? His lies are so blatant that it makes me wonder if his editor can read!
