Welcome to the world of Ann Coulter.
With her monumental bestsellers Treason, Slander, and High Crimes and Misdemeanors, Coulter has become the most recognized and talked-about conservative intellectual in years-and certainly the most controversial. Now, in How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must), which is sure to ignite impassioned debate, she offers her most comprehensive analysis of the American political scene to date. With incisive reasoning, refreshing candor, and razor-sharp wit, she reveals just why liberals have got it so wrong.
Ref. Book Review and Quotes
There is a twist here that I would like to bring up. What about Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler. This work was written when he was in prison, but here is the best part...
"One writer who influenced Hitler while in prison was Henry Ford, the American car-manufacturer. Hitler read Ford's autobiography, My Life and Work, and a book of his called 'The International Jew'. In the latter Ford claimed that there was a Jewish conspiracy to take over the world. Hitler also approved of Ford's hostile views towards communism and trade unions."

82 and coming on strong: Kurt Vonnegut's new book is part commentary and part memoir, marked by his acerbic world perspective.
|"What do you want to talk about? Politics? Our president is a complete twit. I'll talk about the death of the novel. I'll talk about anything you want."|
You may not know Ana Marie Cox. However, if you are one of the millions who take their information nourishment from Internet blogs, odds are you know Wonkette, her electronic nom de plume. Cox's Wonkette is to snarky inside-politics blogs what Jon Stewart's The Daily Show is to snarky dead-on (OK, they call it comedy) analysis of what's really happening in the nation's capital. They both shine a spotlight on the bottom-feeder qualities of politicians, always eager to point out their hypocrisies and double talk.
