In The Grouchy Historian, Ed Asner leads the charge for liberals to reclaim the Constitution from the right-wingers who use it as their justification for doing whatever terrible thing they want to do, which is usually to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted. It's about time someone gave them hell and explained that Progressives can read, too.

What a great book!! I learned new things, and enjoyed the author's performance, humour and snark. I recommend this book to anybody who cares about the US, about the Constitution, and about the "Constitutional Conservatives'" reframing of history.
