Are conservatives perfectly behaved saints? Of course not. The authors would never say anything so ridiculous. Republican, however, usually feel guilty about violating their own ethical code. Moreover, they refuse to look the other way when a hero goes badly astray. No Republican could have survived Ted Kennedy's disgraceful behavior at Chappaquiddick. Their career would have immediately been destroyed. The same holds true concerning the rampant illicit sexual behavior of countless Democratic standard bearers. Democrats are masters of financial chicanery and voter fraud. They are sometimes even willing to partner with gangsters. Numerous Democrats never hesitated to treasonously align themselves with our country's avowed enemies. Convicted criminals, it must also be added, seem to adore the Democratic Party. 68.9% of all felons would vote on behalf of Democratic politicians. And many actually do! This fact alone should appall mainstream voters. Do you want your politicians eagerly seeking the criminal vote?
I observed first hand, as a former Model Cities elected official, how the Democratic Party brought Detroit, Michigan down to its knees. This section of Donkey Cons is alone worth the price. Buy a copy. Better yet, you should also purchase a few copies for your friends.
Flares into Darkness
Though the research for this book is scholarly, the authors -- both veteran journalists -- have combined their writing styles into an easy-to-read, story-telling mode that presents the facts and allows the reader to judge his or her own conclusions. There is very little opinion and no sermonizing in this book. Like the old "Dragnet" TV series, the authors have presented "just the facts." And while some of those facts are well-known to most, the authors have uncovered little-known twists in almost every instance that make even these familiar stories (Chinagate, JFK's mob ties) seem like new revelations. For instance, I never knew that J. Edgar Hoover used JFK's extra-marital activities as leverage to force the president to allow Hoover to wire-tap Martin Luther King.
This book is a fun, fast read for anybody interested in politics, regardless of party sympathy. I hope these two writers (full disclosure: I was in college with both of them) team up on something else soon. They have a knack for telling stories that other media sources won't.
It might be too jarring.
First, give your friend or family member a fifth of decent scotch. Share a nip or two to establish conviviality and soften the defenses. THEN bring out the copy of Donkey Cons. If you can get them through the first two chapters, you will likely have performed a successful intervention.
Donkey Cons traces the history of the Democratic Party from its ignominious origins (founded by the scoundrel Aaron Burr - among many facts the modern Democratic leadership do not want you to know) to the present day. Witty, narrated in a lively style and meticulously footnoted, this important chronicle should be sine qua non on every political reference shelf.
For those who have suspected the Democrats are not quite as sparkly white as they make themselves out to be, this book provides the concrete historical evidence.
But even more valuable than putting those lies to rest is the book's unveiling of "progressive" ideology. The mainstream media and the scions of modern academia play a huge role in buttressing the purveyors of liberal ideas and liberal misbehaviour. Bottom line: It's a total scam, and if most Americans had any idea what the progressives were up to it would mean the end of the legitimacy of liberalism.
