Lying Liars and the comedian who will take them down

Let me begin this post by saying that if you have not read Al Franken's book, "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them" you must do so immediatly. I read the book last August and it was, for me, redemption for all of the trash out there like Coulter, O'Reilly, Savage, and Hannity. It screamed "I am mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore." But yet it was funny, smart, and HONEST. It had (oh my God) citations. Yes, that is right... they actually researched their material to make sure it was accurate.

Anyways, Franken has a chapter discussing the whole Condi Rice- 9/11 thing. You should read it. If you already experienced it, go experience again. For those of you without this enlightening text-click here. The chapter has been reproduced on someone's website. It is worth another read in light the debate our country is in.

For more liberal comedians, go check out Air America Radio! This new liberal radio network is spectacular. My favorite program is actually Janeane Garofalo's show "The Majority Report." It is brilliant. And so many awesome guest stop by as well. Recently, Stephen Colbert of the Daily Show and David Cross of Mr. Show. Randi Rhodes is also worth while. She recently shredded Ralph Nader to pieces... for all of her listeners to enjoy. As she put so wonderfully- "The Green Party- the party Ralph Nader created- is not even endorsing him."

Lastly, go check out The Center for American Progress. They are all over Dr. Rice like white on rice on a polar bear in a snow storm.
