About the Author
C. Edmund Wright has been a full time observer of how liberalism bungles everything since the 1980’s, when he was the lone conservative in an ad/ PR/polling firm full of leftists, and again in the 1990’s when dealing with the moderates in the 1992 Bush-Quayle campaign. As a husband, father and owner of a number of businesses since then, Wright didn’t realize liberal observation was his full time job until the early 2000’s. Along the way, it dawned on him that everything that was complicating his business, family, liberty and the ability to earn and keep something called discretionary income was related to liberalism. At the root of every problem he faced was inevitably some liberal person, some liberal rule, or perhaps some otherwise normal person who had let some bit of liberalism sully their thinking. Wright resides in North Carolina, where he lives with his wife and their two youngest children. He contributes to AmericanThinker.com, ghost writes for media figures, is the Publicity/Political Director for Marketel Media, and has other business interests. Wright specializes in rapid response communication, using a mix of humor, analogy, and story telling to easily connect the intellectual bankruptcy of liberalism to all of our nation’s major problems. His commentary specialty is eliciting the ‘oh, never thought about it like that’ response.

The book is as current as November's election; involved in the candidacies of several Republican presidential wannabes, Wright offers his informed take on what went on behind the scenes.
As sharp as the analyses are, the heart of the book is its humor. Following every essay, Wright offers a series of "YMBALs" (You Might Be a Liberal). Examples: you might be a liberal "If your answer is hire more teachers, firefighters, and cops, regardless of what the question is...If you thought Obama was going to buy gas to put in your car...If you hate corporations but love unions...If you've ever worn Birkenstocks to a formal..." and on and on. The book is filled with gems like these.
Wright's opinions are strongly stated, but his touch is so light that I'll go out on a limb and say that even liberals would find "You Might Be a Liberal..." entertaining.
