Warning: Unhinged liberals are hazardous to the nation's health.
They're slashing your tires. Burning their lawns. Heaving peis at Republican pundits. Hurling racist epithets at minority conservatives. Nursing nutty conspiracy theories. And pining publicly for the murder of President Bush.
And they call us crazy?
Unhinged: Exposing Liberals Gone Wild, Michelle Malkin plays conservative Margaret Mead to the alien political creatures of the American Left. With uproarious detail and rollicking reportage, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of leftists gone mad in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.
Unhinged unmasks liberals who've completely abandoned rationality and reality. They're taking chainsaws and bayonets to campaign sings. Running down political opponents with cars. Setting fire to political opponents in effigy. Defacing war memorials. Swiping yellow ribbons off cars. And supporting the fragging of American troops.
In Unhinged, you'll meet:
- The top 10 Unhinged Leftists, Celebrities, Media Liberals, and Politicians.
- The Pennsylvania Democrat who repeatedly screamed "faggot" at his Republican opponents on the Senate floor.
- The Florida Democrat who tried to run down former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris with his Cadillac.
- The Democrat congressman who claimed the capture of Saddam Hussein was staged by GOP operatives to help Bush re-election campaign.
- The veteran newsman who claimed that Bush adviser Karl Rove and Osama bin Laden are working hand-in-hand to help the Republican Party.
- And hundreds more unhinged liberals gone wild.
With wit, wisdom, and a bullet-proof vest, Michelle Malkin ruthlessly and raucously skewers the myths of liberal tolerance, peace, and civility. Unhinged shows how conservatives are driving their opponents mad. the good news for liberals? Self-help starts here.
"The spewing of vitriol, epithets and wild conspiracy theories suggest a collective nervous breakdown among liberals, according to conservative commentator Malkin who, in her latest book, makes no distinction between moderate and extreme liberals; everyone left of right is a nut who suffers from PEST-Post Election Selection Trauma. This syndrome, she explains, is democratic (small d), affecting stuffed-donkey clutching college students and seasoned congressmen and journalists whose overweening diatribes and hand-wringing Malkin has seized to illustrate an emotionally charged and irrational hatred of everything conservative. Malkin scoured blogs, speeches, media commentaries and even transcripts from Oprah for material, though she misses the boat in a number of instances, most notably in her obliviousness to sarcasm and irony, and she overextends her analytical prowess by offering shallow, shoddy critiques of theater, literature and modern art. Malkin uses extremist bloggers and airheaded celebrities as exemplars of the left, cherry picking the most egregiously tasteless examples of ill-conceived commentary or inflammatory behavior to bolster her case that liberals, as a whole, have gone off their rockers. Right-wingers looking for affirmation will enjoy." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
Malkin offers a hilarious proof of the utter hypocrisy of Democrats who fashion themselves as role models of tolerance and civility.
Unhinged: Exposing Liberals Gone Wild is Michelle Malkin's unrestrained and uncensored exposé of hate-mongering Leftists.

With infuriating details that are not for the faint of heart, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of foaming-at-the-mouth Leftists in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.
