He's good enough, he's smart enough . . .

In an effort to try and educate myself before November, I recently read Al Franken's latest book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right. It was pretty funny and there were some interesting ideas. Next I want to read something from another perspective. I found a conservative-run site about Franken and his book called lyingliar.com, and I also saw an author on the Daily Show talking about his book, Bush Country. I'm hoping that my library will get this soon, because I don't really want to buy it.

Any other recommendations for me, from either side of this debate? I'd also like to read a book like Franken's but more serious and issue focused. Most of his time is spent trying to point out stupid things that people said or did, and not explaining why their ideas don't work.

depends exaclty what you are looking for. I have hear Sean Hannity’s books are decent. I have read Michael Savage’s “The Savage Nation” - which would be the extreme other side (wacko conservatism). Or you can check out Bill O’Reilly (the dude franked mocked with the whole “fair and balanced” thing). i haven’t read franken’s book, but I will soon.
