Huffington makes the case that America has been hijacked from within by a radical element - the "lunatic fringe" of the Right that has taken over the Republican Party. Despite holding views at odds with the majority of Americans, these zealots have given us an endless war in Iraq, a sputtering economy, a health-care system on life support, a war on science and reason, and an immoral embrace of torture.
But they haven't done it on their own; they have been enabled by a compliant media - which acts as if there is no such thing as truth and is more interested in cozying up to those in power than in holding them accountable - and by feckless Democrats who have allowed themselves to be intimidated into backing down again and again.
Both a withering indictment and a hopeful call to arms, Right Is Wrong is an explosive, boldly incisive work that will help set the national agenda.
