Scarborough was a frequent elbow rubber with faux conservative, big government republicans like McCain and Graham. Read this book to better understand the big government republican mentality on bullet points and less on his actual views. A true conservative will mostly be disgusted.

For those who are familiar with Morning Joe this will be familiar stuff. Scarborough recognizes the risks of dis-functional government and presents a way back to reasonable conservative participation in our political process.
