Franken has a uasi Socratic disingenuousness It's not uite that he claims ignorance while exposing the ignorance of others What Franken claims is that he's a comedian in contrast with the apparently serious political commentators he skewers And he really is funny And sharp I laughed out loud at Loving America the Al Franken Way a grab bag of facets of America rated on a goodbadweird scale But often Franken sounds deadly serious In the same chapter responding to the claim that liberals train our children to criticize America not celebrate it he says To a four year old everything Mommy does is wonderful and anyone who criticizes Mommy is bad Grown up love means actually understanding what you love taking the good with the bad and helping your loved one grow It's a good point And it is funny sort of that Franken's target in this case Sean Hannity seems to miss it After a while though the seriousness seeps through I found some of the later chapters sad or discouraging and funny at the same time He's his own straight man and it works

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them A Fair and Balanced Look at the RightAl Franken one of the Lying PDFEPUB #189 our savviest satirists People has been studying the rhetoric of the Right He has listened to their cries of slander bias and even treason He has examined the Bush administration's policies of suandering our surplus ravaging the environment and alienating the rest of the. I’ve been a registered Democrat since high school and many of my values are liberal but this was awful This book is an example of atrocious holier than thou thinking with humor that is meaner than it is funny and blind where it should be practical It’s propaganda for people who already believe the cause and contributes nothing to discussion It’s every bit as spiteful and unreasonable to its opposition as the vilified super conservatives It makes me wonder if people like Franken and Ann Coulter aren’t in this for money as championship of polar values gets them easy praise and tons of cash I found the epilogue about the Democrats taking Congress and righting all the wrongs of the country to be the most amusing part of the book When we actually saw how little the Democratic Congress which I helped with my vote into office did it was like one final nail heavier than all the others driven through this paperback Now that they control the presidency and both houses of Congress with Franken in their company maybe some of his righteous prophecy can come true Until then do yourself a favor and pick up an informative book like Cobra II or All The Shah’s Men instead books intended to give you information so you can form your own opinions Mean spirited humor meant to demean those we disagree with only hurts national discourse no matter which “other” is being attacked
