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.

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.

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.
