A quick listen, a quick read, and an informative book. It doesn't matter where you stand politically. If you are open-minded, you will listen to our soldiers. They are the people that are risking their lives every day. Thank you, Michael Moore, for donating the proceeds of this book to the families who lost loved ones in Iraq.
I managed to make it through the entire book, but it's not easy to stay alert listening to the driest narration possible. I think I'm going to stick with fluffier nonfiction books for now on. Plus, I now know to truly listen to the audiobook sample and ask myself, "Could I listen to this narrator for 14 hours?" In the case of this book, I did, but it took the perseverance of a saint. I'd recommend you read this book and listen to something else.
Thanks, Jeff, for sharing your many lapses, slips and other mishaps along the way to a more healthy and environmentally-conscious lifestyle. You managed to keep it funny and you demonstrated the value of authenticity and openness about matters that are a source of shame.
My wife had no clue when she bought this book for me that it would change my vote. After the 2nd chapter, I was glued to the book. How could these things be true about our President? I listened to the entire book in less than two days. I am now getting the hardback to share with my conservative friends. How could I be so stupid to back a President that used cocaine at Camp David? There are more than 100 unique facts that if any one is true, I'm happy to vote for anyone but Bush.
OMG! If any one of the numerous facts shared by Mrs. Kelley is true, I am so thankful for having stuck to my instinct on the Bush Family. From outright racism and classism to drug abuse, adultery and scandal, the Bush Family exposes the truth behind the "image" that the Bush Family so eagerly projects. I only wish that many of the brave souls that bought weed from Laura Bush, snorted cocaine with George W. at Camp David, and had extramarital affairs with George 41 would speak up.
Yes, I have read this book. And, yes, I also like Franken. But Moore is clearly the KING of political satire. The scary thing, however, is just how much Moore seems to know about the "real" politics that are going on while most of the public sleeps. Just how close is Bush to the Saudis? Did Bush profit from the "war" in Afghanistan and Iraq? Why did Bush rush to help the Bin Ladens leave the US within hours of 9/11? Moore seems to have tapped into frustration most people have with modern day politicians, yet holds out persistent hope that we (the people) will wake up and smell the bulls***.
Al Franken has the courage to point out the outright lies told by the lying liars on the "fair and balanced" right. From O'Liely (Bill O'Reilly) to Hannity, Bush, Coulter, etc., etc., Al exposes the lies in a deliberate, highly referenced manner.. but with LOL jokes and puns throughout. Of course, I am not a republican. I'm not a democrat. I am, however, a person that is sick and tired of the right wing media and the sour economy.
