Kurt Schlichter is a US Army Colonel, an LA Lawyer, and a one-time stand-up comedian. He is also required Twitter reading for the sort of conservatives who yearn for full engagement with the Enemy. All of those things come out in this fun takedown of the radical American left, from Occupy to the racist policies the Democrat party has championed throughout its history.

If you're looking at this book, you've almost certainly come across Mr. Schlichter on Twitter. If you enjoy his posts there, you'll like "I Am a Liberal", which expands on some familiar themes while opening a few new fronts in the War on Socialism. Hey, it's a 4/5 star review; I clearly enjoyed it. Buy the book. It'll make you a more #caring human being.

Now, let the nit-picking commence.

I admit I was hoping for a bit more Ann Coulter, and a bit less Rodney Dangerfield, than what I found. In other words, more of the sort of article Mr. Schlichter posts on the Breitbart website - those tend to be rather good. Unfortunately, you can see the Lawyer's legal briefs and the Colonel's reports come out in occasional runs of choppy prose, while the stand-up comedian dominates the pages and pages of Twitter-style one-liners. The tweets are often fun, but at times feel like filler when coming down from a particularly well-argued chapter. It hurts the flow, and I find myself flipping through tweets to get to the next chapter. Alternatively, a single favorite tweet might make a great subtitle for each chapter. It'd be a more effective way to tie the Twitter audience into a larger effort than pages of familiar, but out-of-place, tweets. (Kurt - that idea's free)

I think Kurt Schlichter has in him the potential to start writing Conservative must-reads; he just needs to transition from Twitter Airborne into Literary Operator. Developing enough confidence and capability as a writer to leave the one-liners behind and write a full-throated novel will take him there.

If you're not following Kurt Schlichter on twitter, you should be. He's hilarious, sarcastic and dead right. In his second ebook, Kurt digs into the Liberal mindset, a most frightening journey. With "I Am A Liberal", Kurt attacks the liberal argument theory of not arguing on facts or logic, but by loud volume and violence. From there, he punches holes in smugness from liberals who, in Kurt's world, should be fetching him his latte.

The book is great, and makes a good antidote to the MMFA-led bias factory. Give this book to your fellow liberals, and show them that you are indeed #caring.

Chapter 6's History of America was pure awesomeness. It is worth buying the book for that chapter alone. This was informative, entertaining and teaches you all you need to know about dealing with liberal trolls on Twitter. Can't wait for the next book!

It was fantastic. I laughed until my anus ruptured. You may want to sit on an absorbent towel or possibly puppy training pads. something before you read this.

As a blogger and twitter follower of Mr. Schlichter, I have seen his series of tweets beginning with "I am a conservative. ", in which he expounds, in about 120 characters of inspirational confidence, on some area of conservative thinking. His "I am a liberal" series mocking the online left is fun, but sometimes loses its edge for me. I bought the book expecting it to be an endless series of aphorisms, mainly buying it because I'd recently met Kurt and wanted to support his work.

So I worked my way through the first couple of chapters, frankly more interested in the Leinenkugel's Lemon Berry Shandy and the hand-rolled Fuente Gran Reserva I was enjoying than in the text.

And then Schlichter reached through the ether and grabbed me by the mental short ones. Conservatives like to argue based on valid logic and avoidance of fallacies "with latin names," he said. But that's the wrong way to go. From Chapter 3:

"Political arguments don't work like that in America right now. They probably never have.

Understand that.

Accept that.

And go for your opponent's throat."

The rest of Chapter 3 describes Kurt's method of dealing with the online left. That sets the tone for the entire book, a glorious description of the lunacy of liberalism and what you can do to stop it. It's a fun read, and if I learned stuff after 25 years watching liberals online, you probably will, as well. I highly recommend this book to anyone who interacts in online politics -- especially if you've been at it a while and think you know what you're doing.

This is Kurt's second book. It is the second I have read and the second I have reviewed.

Hey! @KurtSchlichter ! I've reviewed BOTH your books! [...]

It is funnier than the first and worth every penny. I am not saying that just because I'm mentioned in there, either.

I'm saying it because, if Kurt sells enough copies, he'll buy me a beer.

The success of Kurt's book is already reflected in the first lefty review above. Ruptured progressive bile ducts and exploded hippie brains are the hallmarks of conservative truth. Kurt's sly digs at the words and ideas lefties can't permit themselves to think or express are as funny and even more telling as his sendups of the slop that does erupt from their pie-holes...
