Stop the madness

· long story short

['Lies' book cover]I’m feeling groggy today because I stayed up half the night reading most of Al Franken’s new book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right. I expected it to be funny, and it is, but it is also infuriating and uplifting. I’ve seen the attacks on Franken, most particularly the ones by hysterical, splotch Bill O’Reilly, but I haven’t seen any attempts to refute his arguments and I doubt I will. He does a great job od deconstructing the right-wing propaganda apparatus in this country. I also agree that there’s something seriously wrong with Ann Coulter.
