100 People Who Are Screwing Up America, by Bernard Goldberg

100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (And Al Franken Is #37)
Given the last couple of books by Goldberg, Bias and Arrogance, about mainstream media liberal bias and political backstabbing, the majority of the people listed in the top 100 don't come as any great surprise, if you've followed what passes for political discourse in the media these days. I was surprised, though, to see a token number of conservatives, such as Michael Savage and David Duke, on the list. When I read what he had to say about both of them, my initial shock wore off.

I suppose this list could serve as an America's Most Wanted for neo-cons. The people who, by virtue of their outright malice, stunning ignorance, or unwitting duplicity (can you tell by my choice of adjectives that I lean a little to the right, myself?), have done the most to drag down the American Dream and destroy the underpinnings of the American Way of Life.

I'm not gonna name a whole lot of names here. You'll have to read it for yourself to get those. I will name some groups:

Leaders and spokespersons of the DNC
Civil rights leaders who exploit racial "victimhood" for personal gain
Gangsta rap artists and their enablers
Producers of trash on tv
Businessmen whose greed destroys their companies, while leaving them with golden parachutes
Radical Feminists
Socialist and communist educators who stifle any dissent on campus
Rabble-rousers who incite hate crimes
Activist judges
Greedy malpractice lawyers
Babbling Celebrities

Did I miss anyone? Goldberg doesn't appear to, but he does ask for his readers to send him their own list of the people he's missed. Wouldn't want to make anyone feel left out, you know.

As I said, there were no great surprises here, but there were a few choice morsels - examples of liberal spokesbeings talking out of both sides of their mouths, that I really liked.
