Review: 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America

If you read anything at all this Summer, you owe it to yourself to read this book by Bernard Goldberg.

Goldberg, a self-confessed recovering liberal, takes a look at folks who are contributing to the "wronging" of America...and since this Blog is entitled "Righting America," I feel that it is appropriate to share my findings on this humorous, in-your-face book.

It's true, you will recognize the names of many of these folks, but there are some that you probably have never heard of. However, each of these 100 have done significant, far-reaching damage in their own ways. Many concerned only with the "bottom line," others with fame and power. Still others think that "Red Staters" don't have the brains to make their own decisions. The vast majority of this Rogues' Gallery are shallow, narcissistic and simply cannot comprehend that they are hurting LOTS of people.

Fame and celebrity do not make an expert on National Security, and political power does not automatically endow more wisdom than the other side. Just because one has the right to free speech DOES NOT mean one shouldn't consider his/her words first - especially if those words are carried to millions and may be carried to our troops and those who wish them (and us) harm. Ted Kennedy and Howard Dean are great examples of this conspiracy-theory, blow-horn style that does grave damage to American interests.

But wait! This is not just about the liberals, their media and Hollywood (although much of it is! ;-). Number 70 is none other than Jimmy Swaggart...as it should be!

RELATED STORY: Last Wednesday, Donny Deutsch and five "panelists" (read "Liberals") laid into Goldberg on this book that NONE of them had read - including Deutsch. After being interrupted once too many times, Goldberg finally told a babbling feminist to "shut up." Deutsch became livid (along with the crazy woman) and asked for an apology -- to which Goldberg simply said "Why? She really DOESN'T shut up!"
