Great Political Tool

Right now Sarah Palin is using this most adequate political tool preparing for her debate against Joe Biden. After tomorrow evening (10/02/2008) we'll see how it worked.

Politics for Dummies

Haven't read the whole thing, but so far it has been very simple to understand and read.

Be careful when decrying bias

Some people interpret bias whenever something doesn't square perfectly with their view. In this case describing Republican voters as white, upper-class etc, happens to fit the facts presented by countless polls. It's just a fact. Read it as such. This book is extremely helpful for the novice seeking more information on politics. Don't let Rush Limbaugh style rants against "liberal bias" turn you off.

Great Introductory Book

This book is a great introduction into political participation. It is written in simple language (as should be inferred from the title) and provides a fairly clear map for anyone who is interested in ACTIVE participation in politics. If you are interested in overcoming the American political apathy, buy this book.
