50 Things Liberals Love to Hateby Mike Gallagher

America, how does the liberal hate thee? Let us count the ways . . .
It’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, it’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, 50 Things Liberals Love to Hate is truth spoken with love, an invitation to the disenfranchised: it’s not too late, liberals, to join the fun! C’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:
WALMART: How about a handmade, locally sourced flat-screen television instead?
STEAKHOUSES: There’s no steamed tofu on this menu.
McDONALD’S: The stranger in the playground handing out candy to children.
FLAG PINS: It’s okay to love America, but not enough to wear it on your lapel.
FOOTBALL: War with cleats and pads.
THE V-8 ENGINE: There’s just something plain wrong about all that power and freedom under the control of one person.
SUCCESS: When you make more money than the rest of us, it hurts our feelings.
THE FOUNDING FATHERS: 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.
. . . and 42 other things that have liberals packing some serious hate. Mike Gallagher—America’s sixth-ranked radio talk show host and Fox News contributor—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. . . .

This book was a great read. Mr. Gallagher is witty, perceptive, and incisive. It's too bad that the GOP didn't pick someone of Mr. Gallagher's intelligence and character to juxtapose against the idiot currently occupying the White House. Let it be stated in the history books that Mitt Romney lost the election more so than Barack Hussein Obama won it.
The subject matter of each chapter brings a lot of things to the forefront. Unwarrented complaints about McDonalds, learning about John Wayne are important. We need more truth and less Political BS or just distortions of truth.
God I love making fun of liberals and this book was spot on and kept a smile on my face the whole read.
Even the sample is great. The one star people must be liberals because they looked for the dirt in this book. Unfortunately there is none so they made it up.
Mike really dishes out the truth here. Liberals would of course hate this book because the truth hurts and liberals are brain-washed anti-American idiots anyway. If you're a conservative who loves America you'll love this book. In a witty and bold way he explains why liberals are the way they are. It really takes a book like this to try to understand how a liberal thinks. Nobody with a normal mind can figure out a liberal anyway.
I read this mind-less rant and feel like I wasted my time. He compares his observations to Jane Goodall! This guy is just the “simplest” chimp in the room! I would call myself a middle of the road republican. I do agree with some of Gallagher’s philosophies and listen to him on the radio from time to time. This book is made up of gross exaggerations and simple-minded stereotypes, and frankly is not that “witty”. If you classify yourself as a radical conservative maybe you can laugh with this guy, but I didn’t even laugh at him. I just didn’t laugh at all. This guy has not mastered the subtleties of writing sarcasm. #34 of 50 on girls was just plain rude and crude. My advice… DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY… not amusing, not informative, just one man’s mind-less ramblings that attempts and fails to be amusing.
i happen to agree with some of what gallagher has to say, especially about capitalism and earning your keep in life. however, i find his remarks about women's choices pertaining to abortion and entering the military revolting. not all women are born with the mothering and nurturing instinct. that doesn't make you good or bad. he's as limiting as the liberals he's protesting about. also, i find it deplorable that he feels gay men should start their own boy scouts group. is he implying that "morally straight" means that gay men are immoral? sounds pretty narrow minded to me.
