On the home front, Franken covers President Bush's attempt at Social Security reform, explaining how they came up with the projected shortfall figure of $11 trillion. For one thing, they adjusted life expectancy to 150 years, while leaving the retirement age at 67: "That's an eighty-three-year retirement. They're never gonna get to that without stem cell research." He also takes some wickedly funny swipes at Karl Rove, lobbyist Jack Abramoff, pundits and hosts such as Rush Limbaugh, Tim Russert, and Sean Hannity, and, of course, President Bush. The Truth succeeds in providing ammunition to liberals and others dissatisfied with the current power base in Washington, D.C.--only this time (with jokes). --Shawn Carkonen

Not much laugh out loud funny in this book, but good and fact based W bashing (which is well deserved). Lies was much funnier and also had good factual info. Read morePublished 7 months ago by ColleenJulie
I have loved Al Franken since his SNL days and although this was politically heavy on Truth, I thought it was too light on Jokes. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Nikki
Franken is funny. I don't always agree with his politics, but he puts out his point of view with humor that is hard to find from Republicans.Published 12 months ago by J. Spurway
Just as impressive, or more, as 'Lying Liars' was. Do yourself a favor and pick this book up, as well. I really hope that there's another follow-up coming soon. Read morePublished 13 months ago by S. Rogers
This is a great read, even if, perhaps, not Franken's best book. Certainly not his funniest. But there is a lot of good stuff here. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Bron
Al Franken has a way of taking infuriating situations, see them for what they are, and then help us laugh about them, or at them! Read morePublished 23 months ago by Lynn B. Schornick
