I've never read Al Franken's Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right
and frankly I doubt it will ever rise far enough up on my "must read"
list to see the light of day. For all I know, it's a great book
full of interesting and useful information that would do me good to read. But if so, why does it have a
title that sounds like a pre-adolescent playground taunt? That alone makes it hard to take the content seriously. Someone
needs a ghost title-writer.

Al Franken's shtick is humour and this is reflected well in his writing. The tone of the book is extremely casual and in places, very funny. I have not yet finished reading it yet, so I will refrain from commenting on it further.
Ah, mea culpa! My ingnorance of popular culture shows itself again: I had not realized he was a comedian. Thanks for setting me straight.
He he! No problem!
