Who is Really Screwing up America?
In my upcoming book, Pants on Fire: How Al Franken Lies, Smears, and Deceives, I write, albeit briefly, about one of the problems that the left has that they don't seem to understand - you can't grow your cause, whatever it is, when you are angry and foaming at the mouth - When you are re-active rather than pro-active.
We have Rush, so they have to have a Rush (Al Franken)G-d help us.
We have the Heritage Foundation, so they create Center for American Progress.
We have the Media Research Center, so they create a pathetic group called Media Matters for America.
Bernard Goldberg writes a book: 100 People who are Screwing up America and the left goes berserk. How is it that one man, Goldberg, who though he is a best-selling author does not have the audience of an O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, and others, can be on the receiving end of such hateful vitriol from the left?
When Goldberg's book came out in early July 2005, he was a guest on Donnie Deutch's The Big Idea - a low rated program at 10:00pm on CNBC. Deutch brought on 5 guests (none of whom even read the book) to pile on Goldberg and his temerity to write a book that highlights many of the shortcomings of well known liberals who in his opinion, HIS OPINION, are contributing to the cheapening of our culture.
Oh yeah, he's really off the mark by naming Paris Hilton and her irresponsible parents. Adding Courtney Love to the list is also waaay out of line.
Katrina vanden Heuvel of the Nation, whom I also mention in my book, wrote a long and scathing article attacking Goldberg. In her closing she writes of an upcoming book titled, 100 People who are Really Screwing up America, as the liberal response to Goldberg.
Let me guess who will be on that list: Limbaugh, Hannity, Coulter, Halliburton, O'Reilly, Gingrich, Drudge, Farah,...
My advise to the left, lighten up and enjoy life.
