Just when I thought Bernard Goldberg was perfect, he improves ... to the Left & Right of me!

After reading "Culture Warrior" by Bill O'Reilly, "Shut up and Sing" by Laura Ingraham and "Bamboozled" by Angela McGlowan, I thought I was finished with this genre. There couldn't possibly be any program, politician , person, or pig ... left to expose, skewer or roast over the proverbial coals. I accidentally stumbled onto Mr. Goldberg's latest book while visiting a local bookstore. They allow customers to peruse books in comfortable chairs without constraints (I can not fathom how they make a profit this way ... but, I digress). For the first time I (guiltily) sat in one of these chairs with this provocative book, thinking I would quickly peruse and discard it. Not only did I stay longer than anticipated ; I ended up buying my copy, taking it home, and reading it overnight ... to the chagrin of my wife, children, and Labrador Retriever. I loved this book! Also intriguing was Mr. Goldberg's concept of offering evidence what a person has done, and then succinctly summarizing what many have felt but were afraid to express --- due to political correctness. He navigates this barrier with aplomb, attitude, and ferocity...regardless of the political spectrum. If you are bored with one celebrity's or politician's faux pas, turn the next page and you will be introduced to a new subject of interest. This eclectic list makes his latest effort a quick, compelling, and enjoyable read. It is done with a sense of humor and marvelously written by one who has worked with and interviewed many of the individuals in the book. I plan to keep it as a reference source for future protection when I hear these people quoting political views ... and giving their "feelings" about events (a euphemism for someone who hasn't a clue about the facts) that affect the survival of our culture, people ... and Labrador Retrievers.

Liberals should know better than to read this...

But for the rest of us fairly sane people... Goldberg calls all of us (mainly the Dems) out on the carpet in this one. Sure, the truth hurts, but someone has to say it and he does a fine job. If you have your feelings hurt easily you may want to turn away. He makes me feel alright with my conservativism and makes me feel OK to admit it in public.

An Adult Political Discussion - Good Stuff!

Bernard Goldberg sold me this book as I was driving one day and heard him being interviewed. He was talking about what has happened to the Left in this country. There was a time when you could have a discussion with them about the current state of politics. No more.The reason? BDS. This is actually a term that was coined by Dr. Charles Krauthammer, a Harvard trained psychiatrist and Pulitzer prize winning columnist. BDS is Bush Derangement Syndrome. As it was explained, I was laughing and nodding and it wasn't long before I turned into a local mall and went into their bookstore and bought the book. Goldberg used to work for CBS. He used to be liked by his co-workers there at one time. If his book entitled, "Bias" in which he trots out some uncomfortable truths about CBS News didn't kill their relationship, this one will. However, the Left isn't the only group that feels the lash of the Goldberg whip. Those wimpy moderates on the Right come in for their share of it as well. It is all done in good taste and with a lot of interesting political insight as well as personal. Unless you are a gold plated Crazie or a certifiable Wimp, you will probably enjoy this book. It is humorous, educational and relevant, not the sort of virtues one finds much of in political discussions these days. That alone makes it worth buying.

Goldberg has had it with both sides now-- and it's hilarious

Just finished reading the book. I couldn't put it down. Goldberg dishes out the dirt to both sides-- but for different reasons. Weak, wimpy Republicans and liberals who have lost their minds. The Republicans have lost their drive and won't fight for the very principles that support their platform. They say they are for small government and they, as Goldberg puts it, "spend our money like Imelda Marcos in a shoe store." The best was the part about Rosie. "Once upon a time she was the 'Queen of Nice.' These days she's the 'Queen of Stupid' ruling over a land of morons who hang on her every word and *actually* think she's profound" Speaking of Imus, Goldberg writes, "There's no doubt about it. Tuning into Imus in the Morning is like watching a freak show hosted by a nasty Mother Teresa in a cowboy hat. He even looks a little like her." This is a very rare book-- it's funny, smart, and gets right down to the point of the matter that politics in this country is dysfunctional no matter what side your on.

always thoughtful and entertaining whichever way your politcal wind blows

Goldberg is always entertaining. His books raise strong arguments which he has no trouble backing up with often thoughtful, detailed research. Many of the "average Americans" who consider themselves conservative yet are fed up with the excesses of the Bush administration will surely eat up what Goldberg has to say. Another winner. even if you don't agree with his conclusions its always rewarding to hear the other sides arguments presented intelligently.
