Al Franken, one of 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 squandering our surplus,
ravaging the environment, and alienating the rest of the world. He's even watched Fox News. A lot.
And, in this fair and balanced report, Al bravely and candidly exposes them all for what
they are: liars. Lying, lying liars. Al destroys the liberal media bias myth by doing what
his targets seem incapable of: getting his facts straight. Using the Right's own words against
them, he takes on the pundits, the politicians, and the issues, in the most talked about book of the year.

Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always funny, Lies sticks it to the most
right-wing administration in memory, and to the right-wing media hacks who do its bidding.
conservatives have effectively used against Democrats...
sharp analysis and humor. (Associated Press)

Well, I read most of this and thought it was pretty good. A bit extreme at times but good nonetheless. Then I left it in my bathroom when I evacuated from Katrina. It is now defunct.

There are no words to describe the anguish felt when a much-loved reading companion is lost to us through an Act of (insertownwordhere) that betimes defies description. The sodden remnants of this dear departed were heaved into the furnace at the Crematorium in the faint hope that a good warming would restore them to their former usefulness. Alas the Keeper of the Furnace was unable to retrieve the book before it was reduced to ash (which would have been the final outcome in any case). A very well attended Memorial Service was held in the Chapel of Sighs prior to the ashes of the late one being released to the four winds down by the Pool of Rememberance. The Choir gave a splendid rendition of "The Wayward Wind".

Chief Mourner was retc who was a pillar of strength throughout the sad proceedings. The Management and Staff of the Book Cemetery extend sincere condolences at this sad time.
