5.0 out of 5 stars A SATIRICAL CRITIQUE OF LIBERAL ARGUMENTS AND CULTURE, January 25, 2012
This review is from: How to Win a Fight with a Liberal (Paperback)
Daniel Kurtzman is a former Washington correspondent turned satirist, and is now the editor of the political humor website which is part of the New York Times Company's About.com network. His book How to Win a Fight with a Conservative is a "companion" to this one (in fact, they have a substantial amount of text that is the same in both books).

This 2007 book has an overall satirical tone (e.g., with chapter titles such as "How to Win Friends While Antagonizing People"; various multiple-choice tests to determine "What Breed of Conservative Are You?", etc.), but it also contains some rather cogent arguments (particularly in Chapter 7, "Kick-A__ Arguments: A Step-by-Step Guide"); for example, "No one argues that the economy fared well while Clinton was in office. But after the bubble burst, he left us all stuck in a recession at the end of his term, clinging to our worthless Pets.com stock." (Pg. 129)

The book concludes by identifying "Six Unconventional Things You Can Do to Save the World from Liberals" (e.g., "Make Conservative Babies," "Haunt Democrats from the Grave," etc.).

The book will alternately make you laugh, as well as think. (I'd definitely suggest reading it alongside his other book, though.)
