Publisher Comments:

andlt;Iandgt;America, how does the liberal hate thee? Let us count the ways . . .andlt;/Iandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Itand#8217;s hard work being a liberal these days. Not only do a mere 20 percent of Americans identify themselves as liberal, but one could go broke supporting a skinny double-decaf Starbucks habit. On top of that, when you hate things most Americans love, itand#8217;s tiring to have to endlessly correct/educate/fix/enlighten the poor dullards out there who just want to enjoy their lives. Which, taken as a whole, makes the average liberal lonely, short on cash, and mad as hell! So, in the spirit of the compassion they themselves espouse, andlt;Iandgt;50 Things Liberals Love to Hate andlt;/Iandgt;is truth spoken with love, an invitation to the disenfranchised: itand#8217;s not too late, liberals, to join the fun! Cand#8217;mon, crack open a Bud and throw another T-bone on the grill. But kindly check your disdain at the door when it comes to: andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;WALMARTandlt;/Bandgt;: How about a handmade, locally sourced flat-screen television instead? andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;STEAKHOUSESandlt;/Bandgt;: Thereand#8217;s no steamed tofu on this menu. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;McDONALDand#8217;Sandlt;/Bandgt;: The stranger in the playground handing out candy to children. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;FLAG PINSandlt;/Bandgt;: Itand#8217;s okay to love America, but not enough to wear it on your lapel. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;FOOTBALLandlt;/Bandgt;: War with cleats and pads. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;THE V-8 ENGINEandlt;/Bandgt;: Thereand#8217;s just something plain wrong about all that power and freedom under the control of one person. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;SUCCESSandlt;/Bandgt;: When you make more money than the rest of us, it hurts our feelings. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;THE FOUNDING FATHERSandlt;/Bandgt;: A bunch of old white guys who are making it nearly impossible for modern government to pick our doctors, teach our children, correct our diets, and save our money. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;. . . and 42 other things that have liberals packing some serious hate. Mike Gallagherand#8212;Americaand#8217;s sixth-ranked radio talk show host and Fox News contributorand#8212;skewers liberal lunacy with cutting irony and scathing wit. Here are 50 warning signs of a liberal mind implosion, all darn good reasons to lock the doors, crank up the A/C, turn on the game, and let the countdown begin. . . .

Synopsis:

National radio talk show host Mike Gallagher provides a careful study into the psyche of the liberal mind, using humor and irony to both entertain and instruct.

A recent Gallup/USA TODAY Poll (not exactly Fox News Channel) revealed that 42 percent of Americans called themselves conservative, 35 percent moderate, while only 20 percent used the “L” word to describe themselves.

     It doesn’t take much heavy lifting to understand the surface characteristics of liberals. They are exceedingly well educated, and rarely miss an opportunity to tell you so. They are exceedingly upper-middle class, which we know because it takes real money to support a twice-a-day double decaf habit at Starbucks, and yoga sessions for the wife and pets. They gather in clusters in urban environments where sushi joints outnumber children, and they dominate professions that leave a large cultural footprint, such as journalism, the arts, and the music industry.

     But just who are these people who call themselves liberals? And how does such a small group have such a big impact on our culture? What motivates them? And what do they have against deodorant?

     In 50 Things Liberals Love to Hate, radio talk show host and Fox News Channel contributor Mike Gallagher uses his trademark humor to take the reader inside the life and mind of the American liberal, coming up with fifty definitive things liberals just love to hate.
