Give us the rest of it
The only drawback is that it is abridged. I just finished listening to "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them," and, hungry for more, I thought I'd revisit Franken's other major expose of right-wing mendacity. Now that Lies and the Lying Liars is a best-seller, the publishers ought to get Franken to read the rest of this one for the audio version. I need to listen to something fun on the subway.

The main reason for Rush Limbaugh's weight loss
Anybody who ever watched Rush's disturbing t.v. show had to have seen this book coming. Rush caters to those Americans who are too lazy to think for themselves, and would prefer to be spoon fed "truths". The show was run like an info-mercial, with canned applause coming from the neatly dressed sheeplike audience.
"Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot" is about exposing the sillyness of Rush, but it is mostly about the willingness of the conservatives in our government to overlook their own short-comings while exposing the short-comings of those they don't agree with. Al Franken doesn't try to defend democrats, he simply tries to show the absurd hypocracy of many of the conservative republicans.
In closing, I bought this book in print for myself and I loved it so much that I bought it for my mom. My mom loved it, and what my mom says goes.
