Summary:

The United States has survived clueless presidential administrations before. But no matter how enormous the crisis -- the Great Depression, Vietnam, Watergate, Monica Lewinsky's thong -- America's always come out looking like, well, America.

This time, however, something's different. Things aren't just screwed up; they're f&#!d up beyond all recognition. Welcome to F.U.B.A.R., a hilariously scathing satirical rundown of the Radical Right's takeover of America, by the creators of Air America's Majority Report.

If you're a liberal who's somehow not panicked over the state of our union, or if you're a Republican who's just having voter's remorse, or if you think what's happening to the country is just politics as usual, F.U.B.A.R. will open your eyes to our current national nightmare. With completely unfair and unbalanced analysis, authors Sam Seder and Stephen Sherrill take readers on a whirlwind tour of what's left of the United States, exposing the truth about the Right's blueprint for total domination -- over your money, your mind, your sex life, and even your place in the afterlife (yes, they have a plan for that, too).

Finally, Seder and Sherrill offer a helpful and hopeful vision for a future that remarkably doesn't look like a cross between the Matrix and Mayberry. F.U.B.A.R. is the wake-up call America has been waiting to receive -- and it will probably be wiretapped.

    The book raises important issues which can be lost in sometimes questionable attempts at humor. These are serious issues which are difficult to take seriously in this format. They need to be considered seriously--not in this attempt at humor.

    As an independent voter who also happens to be a journalist, I feel it necessary to warn everyone about this book. This book is very flawed, takes much out of context, and even the authors admit it is unfair and biased. Can you say understatement? I was so totally distracted by the amount of outright lies and distortions that I had nearly finished the book before realizing I never even had a mild chuckle. I guess that is because I found it breathtakingly sad to see how desperate the FAAARRR left are these days. Can you say revisionists? Now even though this is on the opposite side of the aisle, if you really want to read a political book that is truly funny, then buy Ann Coulter's latest work "Godless: The Church of Liberalism". I found it very funny and she uses FACTS to get her laughs. Just stay away from F.U.B.A.R!
