About the Author

Alan Colmes is a liberal political commentator, radio host, author, and web publisher. He currently hosts “The Alan Colmes Show,” a nationally syndicated radio show distributed by Fox News Radio. Offering a bold take on the news of the day, with guests ranging from prominent political figures to the biggest names in entertainment and pop culture, Colmes welcomes “any and all opinion, any and all of the time.” Colmes runs the website Liberaland, where he covers the most recent and powerful stories in the news. He is also the author of the book Red, White & Liberal.

Colmes began his career in stand-up comedy, but quickly moved into the world of broadcast news. After several highly rated radio shows, Colmes cemented his reputation as a liberal voice in the media when he served as the liberal counterpart to Sean Hannity on Fox News’s “Hannity & Colmes.”

I really enjoyed this book, very thought provoking.
Jenn B
I could go on and on and point out the many factual errors and obvious misuse of terms that mislead the reader, but after all, this is a polemic, not a scholarly work.
David M. Dougherty
In this book, liberals are people who are open minded and willing to make a change.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Now, when reviewing a political book, I think it's important that the reader know if my review comes from one political side of the fence or another. So in all fairness, I'm a Liberal. However, I'm a Liberal who doesn't believe that all Conservatives are evil, racist, etc.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, to the book:

I did think that this was a pretty fair accounting of Liberalism in America. It seems that the author went out of his way to show a broad history of the founding of America and American political ideals. He includes stories about many Political Conservatives who have acted in ways to increase racial equality, acceptance of gays and lesbians, and who have helped the poor. He includes stories that show that some of our Liberal Saints were racists who believed in eugenics, regardless of some of the good things they are remembered for.

At its heart, the book is a fascinating history lesson - a history of Americans trying to help others as we build our nation. At the end of reading Thank The Liberals, I wasn't thinking of whether Liberals or Conservatives are better. I was just thinking that we live in a darned good country and I was glad I learned something new.

On the back flap of THANK THE LIBERALS dust cover it said "Colmes began his career in stand-up comedy and quickly moved to..." Then too, there was the book's front cover of BOOK, which depicts author implishly shoving his finger up the Liberal's 'A'. I expected Funny,or at least anything but musty-dusty.

Once inside though there are lifts from the U.S. Constitution (Article I, Section 8, etc) with liberal (pun intended) lifts from books about the Constitution, alota legal tomes to do with someone or some entity suing some institution re rights or Supreme Court verdicts (Plessy v. Ferguson), even as far back as 1896 (maybe further) or Brown v. Board of Education or political speeches, debates et so-forth. Then re immigration laws (like SB 1070, with lengthy legal comments. And pages of The Wall Street Journal; then et al et on et on)

Oh: And lower court verdicts and commentary, too. zzzzzzz

In all, it was a lengthy paper chase which must have involved many many many hours of library and online research. If you like law or history or politics (many partisan readers might) this book is for you. For Clark v. THANK the LIBERALS, it became a somnambulistic marathon.

Alan Combs urks me when I see him on TV--usually on FOX News channel...I can always expect him to take a view opposite to that on mine on any issue being discussed. This book is entertaining for it provides what I would expect from Mr Colmes, who drinks the liberal kook-aide. Mr Colmes walks us through liberal values on which our nation was established, and shows how he believes that all Americans are actually liberal and so on and so on.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Colmes is a former stand-up comic who is apparently kept on at Fox News as a tame liberal punching bag. In this book, he gets to punch back, and gives an excellent summary of just why we should, indeed, thank liberals for a lot of things that are right about America, from the weekend to Medicare to the ability to get birth control, to name just a few things. Those who follow the news and blogosphere won't find much here that they don't already know, but it's handy to have the case for liberalism put together in one place. And each chapter concludes with a few zingers to use as talking points. For some reason, the word "liberal" has been demonized by the forces of the right, and maybe it's time to replace it with "progressive" (until that one gets demonized!). Alas, this book is really preaching to the choir... it's not likely that many of the people who need to read it actually will. As I write this, there are 12 one-star reviews of it, mostly ad hominem rants, and none of them shows any indication that the reviewer has actually read or even seen the book, alas.

I have always found Alan Colmes's voice, face and ideas very grating.

Early in the book he says almost every American holds many liberal views and later says everyone or at least everyone reading the book is a liberal. He does this by using a ridiculous reverse-strawman to define the word liberal.

His several page story about George Wallace's evolution was interesting, but his demonization of anyone who thinks maybe not everyone must go to college is much more typical of his ridiculous ideas.

If liberalism was on the verge of extinction, I suppose there would be some audience for this book. But in the current environment I can't see why anyone would spend their time reading it.

A goodly portion of this book reminds us that many of the advantages we enjoy today were implemented by liberal thinkers who were heavily opposed by the conservative thinkers of the day. Social Sicurity, Medicare, minimum wage, five day workweek all fall in this category.

The author of course then tries to convince us that the main issues on today's liberal agenda, abortion and gay marriage, fall in the same category as the above. Some will agree with him and some won't, but the book and the arguments therein are worth reading. And the look at what liberal thinkers accomplished in the past is definitely something all should read and be aware of.
