"You should pick up this book before your next dinner party."
Gayle King, editor-at-large of O, The Oprah Magazine and host of "The Gayle King Show" on Oprah and Friends

Crisscrossing the aisle with wicked glee; no matter which book you finish first, you'll immediately want to run out and get the other one to discover what he said about your side. Just remember to wear a disguise."
Will Durst, political satirist and author of The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing

"No one knows political satire like Daniel Kurtzman."
Andy Borowitz, creator of The Borowitz Report and author of The Republican Playbook

What It Means to Be a Conservative

I never use the words Democrats and Republicans. It's Liberals and Americans.
-James Watt, Interior Secretary under Ronald Reagan

There's a reason that twice as many Americans identify themselves as "conservative" as call themselves "liberal." Would you rather associate yourself with an ideology that is synonymous with patriotism, strength, freedom, family values, moral clarity, and kicking terrorist ass? Or would you rather align yourself with defeatism, elitism, permissive values, moral uncertainty, and pussyfooting with terrorists-or as it's more commonly known, liberalism?

What People are Saying About This

Paul Lewis
"Sharply critical and consistently funny, How to Win a Fight with A Liberal and How to Win A Fight with a Conservative hold twin mirrors up to the illogical state of political debate in our divided country. Though they can be enjoyed for their wit alone, attentive readers will get Kurtzman's satirical point: in the exchange of pre-fabricated positions, the appeal to emotion, and the indulgence of self-approval, we have limited our ability to think clearly about urgent problems. Exposing such failures and mocking those responsible for them is the highest calling of the satirist."--(Paul Lewis, author of Cracking Up: American Humor in a Time of Conflict)

This book is hilarious, outrageous, and dead-on with its commentary about liberals and politics in general. I first heard about it on a conservative blog that linked to an interactive 'what breed of conservative are you?' quiz excerpted from the book. I took the quiz and it was spot-on for me and also hilarious. The book is loaded with humorous tips, lists, and quizzes, and one of my favorite parts is the Liberal Hall of Shame that mocks the crazies on the left. There's humor throughout the book even in chapters that are geared to specific debating strategies. This book makes the potentially dry subject of politics lively and entertaining.
