This was kind of a disappointment. I've seen him on TV before and, even though I didn't always agree with what he said, is almost always made me think. This was more "complaining" and less "thinking." He only offers a handful of proposed solutions to the world's problems, and they're all at the end, and offered half as a joke. The rest of the book he spends bitching about politics on both sides of the aisle. Very "grumpy old men." I hear his other books are better, so maybe I'll check one of them out.

It is always a pleasure to read anything by Bernie Goldberg, if for no then reason then because of the wit and humor that he brings to the discussions of contemporary issues. This is a very varied account of many of his personal gripes that he has with both left and the right in the US, but at the final analysis it is still the right that comes somewhat ahead, although it would seem it is primarily because they are better at not getting their foot stuck in their mouth as often as the liberals seem to be doing these days. One of the main things that Goldberg has an issue with is the lack of civility that goes on in public discourse, regardless of if it has to do political speech or just general politeness in everyday life. It is to Bernie's credit that he succeeds at dismantling those he disagrees with without having to resort to cheap ad hominem attacks and vicious recriminations. It would be great if some other best-selling authors followed in his footsteps. Otherwise, we may have to wait for another book by Bernard Goldberg.

Bernie Goldberg is an extremely knowledgeable writer that has been around the political arena enough years to know the ins and outs of both sides of the political spectrum. He discusses each issue in a manner that anyone can understand, along with enlightening his readers of what is really going on behind the scenes. Bernie's sense of humor makes this an enjoyable, as well as informative, read. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is concerned with the current situation of our country.

This man 'nailed it'. One of their own has not lost his mind. Mr. Goldberg is true to his profession and a has a good grip on how the 'big business' of our government works. His humor is wonderful. He is a wordsmith and a thinker. He doesn't follow the crowd.

I was very pleased to read bernard goldbergs latest bestseller crazies to the left of me and wimps to right of me cause I think he seems to say in this book of the frustration that Iam feeling about the political scene right now.the democract party and hollywood elite has gone off the deep end with there outlandlish and sometimes unamerican statements and sympathies and some on the right seem unwilling to stand up to them and this publication is also a warning of what will happen in 2008 if things dont change. I think the wisdom contained in this great page turner will make a great difference in the upcoming election.

Bernie Goldberg is an enigma. He's made a career of paranoia about the 'liberal media', yet he's an awful writer (note the dusty references to Amelda Marcos and Rice-A-Roni above) and interviewer - and having thumbed through his last book and this one, he sets the bar extremely low. For conservatives desperate for some validation in a sea of bad news of corruption, scandal, and war, I suppose this book would be a comfort - but Goldberg's execution is atrocious. Unreadable.
