Editor reviews

Goldberg is the former award-winning CBS reporter who ravaged his former employer in his previous bestseller, Bias. In this rant, the irascible Goldberg expands his polemic to include what he considers the "crazies" of the left - whom he portrays as milquetoasts for their social programs and politically correct motives - and the "wimps" of the right - whom he sees as traitors for compromising on social and fiscal policies. Narrated by the author, in a nasal New York tone that barely masks his contempt, this is a typically unsparing indictment so filled with personal invective that one wonders if anyone else could have read it as effectively.

Summary

In Crazies to the Left of Me, Wimps to the Right, Goldberg speaks for the millions of Americans who are saying: Enough! Enough of lunatics like Rosie O'Donnell, who think "Radical Christianity" is "as big a threat to America as Radical Islam". Enough of the hyperbolic liberal rhetoric comparing Bush to Hitler and Abu Ghraib to a Saddam Hussein torture chamber. And please, enough of the military-hating crazies who run San Francisco! But Goldberg has also had it with hypocritical Republicans who say they're for small government but then spend our hard-earned tax money like Imelda Marcos in a shoe store. He's also had it with weak and timid Republicans who won't stand up and fight against racial preferences, too afraid that the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons of the world will call them bigots. In plain English, he's had it with Republicans who are afraid to be conservative! The 2006 election was a wake-up call, he warns, and if the wimps on the Right fail to regain their courage, recover their principles, and reclaim their sense of fiscal responsibility, the crazies on the Left just might win the White House in 2008.
