Top Customer Reviews
This book catalogs the left's lazy uniformity of thought, more than anything else. It would be interesting to read an update that includes 2017's screaming campus garbage babies.
Otherwise, nice stories in the "you're not alone, they really _are_ that way." genre.

(To these I would add the adventure books of G. A. Henry)
This list earns the book an extra star, in my opinion.
Talk radio host Vicki McKenna is quoted in the book: "What happened to individual liberty? Choice doesn't matter when it comes to what kind of freakin' light bulb I want to buy ... Does choice only matter when it comes to killing a baby? (P.125)
I noticed that quote because I've lost count of all the times in the past year when I've tapped a flickering new light bulb and thought or mumbled under my breath: "These new light bulbs don't work very well." Just thank God the environmentalists haven't seriously turned their attention to the flush toilet and toilet paper yet. Which makes me think of a funny Ann Coulter line I'll paraphrase: Since the dawn of time, man has desired to remove his excrement as far as possible from himself.
Ann Coulter comes up more than once in the book, including: "[D]ining with Andrew Stein at Centolire on Madison Avenue the other night, a wild-eyed man came up to their table and shouted at Coulter for her right-wing views" (P. 94)
A great thing about Ann Coulter, Harry Stein, who authored the funny book under review, Greg Gutfeld, Rush Limbaugh, and a number of others is their ability to use humor to mock liberals. Though it's not in this book, I think of a quote:
"A sense of humor is a trait of the balanced; the unbalanced and fanatical don't have one. They have no ability to laugh at themselves or at the ridiculous things of life." - Father George William Rutler, interview with "The Catholic World Report"
Though I live in the red state of Kentucky, the city of Louisville where I reside is purple, slightly more blue than red. This book is excellent for the more heroic conservatives among us who live surrounded by liberals in deep blue states. The subject matter is actually serious, the increasingly irrational hatred of conservatives by liberals. But it is handled in an often quite funny way.
And I just want to thank the left-wingers who gave the one-star reviews here for validating Stein's premise...
As it stood, it was a good "oh, boy have I been THERE" book to read.
Anyway, the book is short and a fun read...highly recommended for those who have crossed the great divide from liberal to conservative.
