According to the author, Americans just can't help themselves: They just have listen to Rush Limbaugh in order to find out what they're supposed be outraged over that day. Of course that is nonsense.
The bias of the author is predictable and blatant: Anyone who criticizes Limbaugh is thoughtful, courageous and principled. And, of course, anyone who doesn't wholeheartedly criticize Limbaugh is afraid of him, unprincipled politicians who want to thwart the people and drag the country back into Bad Days.
Of course, since Limbaugh and his advertisers profit from controversy and manufactured outrage, Somebody must Do Something [sic] to rid us of this scourge!
His proposed solution, which is to turn every opportunity for political discussion into an unrelenting series of "gotcha" questions about something Limbaugh said, is utter nonsense. Both sides can, and do play that game (Can any say "Hillary Rosen"?) Focusing on political (and actually irrelevant) tar babies not only allows politicians to avoid speaking about anything of import, but also increases the hyper-partisanship which is preventing the political consensus needed to solve problems.
Finally, the book is very poorly written. Not only are there many obvious word-choice errors (bated instead of baited, insure instead of ensure, etc.) and factual errors (referring to the 2012 mid-term elections, etc.), and a lack of basic writing skills (run-on sentences, disorganized paragraphs, foreign words and phrases should be italicized, etc.) but the book is generally fluffed by extensive quotes.
Save your time and read something which can actually contribute to your political knowledge and effectiveness.
