1.0 out of 5 stars What a mistake! Dec 13 2005
Format:Paperback
Don't bother reading this trash. Usually only the left published crap like this, but finally we on the right have our own slobbering idiot. It's amazing this ever got published considering the vast flows of drool that must be constantly spilling from Mark Smith's mouth.
This book doesn't have a single well-formed argument in it, and it is full of such an obscene level of pride and arrogance that I almost started thinking it was a leftist trying to make us look bad. Then I remembered that leftists think writing like that is smart, so he really must be a moron on our side.
Even if you could ignore the lack of any sort of research or thought, it's also a despicably religious-fundamentalist text as well. Very embarrassing to those of us who believe in the right for it's rational and practical approach to government.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smashing Leftist Lunacy March 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book shows that defeating the Loony Left is not only easy, it's fun. In just two hundred easy-to-read pages, Smith throws one verbal jab after the other (always leading with his right, of course) at the liberal wackos, exposing their left side and shattering their glass jaw. This book is filled with fun and interesting facts that will enable conservatives to best their liberal friends and colleagues at cocktail parties and around the water cooler (my favorite--did you know that most of the "animals" on the Endangered Species Act list are insects and invertabrates?). It's also scrupulously footnoted. The writing style of the book is light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek, but the underlying arguments are cogent and clear. Armed with actual facts, smashing liberal myths is as easy as ABCs and 123s. Smith's common sense approach to today's hot button issues makes one wonder why there was even a debate in the first place. If everyone buys a copy of this book for their friends and family, the question is, will there be a Loony Left left?

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Title - Great Content - Fantastic Book July 18 2004
Format:Paperback
The title of this book is an obvious joke that's poking fun at Hillary Clinton's claim of a "vast right wing conspiracy" to cover up the criminal and moral mis-deeds of her husband. The author has a good sense of humor, and the fact that some reviewers on here view the title as an admission that such a conspiracy exists makes the title even funnier. Beyond the title, however, is one of the more readable books on liberal theology (yes, theology is a correct term because liberalism is a religion to the radical left-wing).
The format of the book is simple. Present an argument that's regularly made by the liberal elite in this country, and then spend the next several pages proving how wrong the argument is. This book does an excellent job of that, and presents its responses in such a way that readers can quickly reference the liberal argument they're having to defend against, review the actual facts of the issue, and counter the liberal argument immediately.
This book isn't written like the more weighty political texts out there. Those books take a single topic, such as liberal slant to the media, and spend the entire book showing how this is the case. For those who have time to read an entire book to learn how to defend against a single liberal argument, this is a great approach. But for those who need quick answers to arguments they are already in the middle of, Mark Smith's book is perfect.
I compare this book to the play book of an NFL coach. You already have scouted out the other team, and you know what plays they're likely to throw at you. You've built your play book to deal with their offense and their defense. And when the game starts, you're ready. Mark Smith has scouted the liberal positions (you can rely on it...

1.0 out of 5 stars Junk July 3 2004
Format:Paperback
Rather than buy this book I checked it out of my local library, and I thank god I did. I don't want one of my dollars going to this idiot. I wish I could get into detail on all of his points, but I just want to address one thing. His trump card for justification of the Iraq war is that the liberals had no problems with The U.S. pre-emptively attacking Yugoslavia when it posed no threat to us. What a stupid analogy, there was noted objection (by liberals and conservatives alike) to the war, not one American life was lost in the campaign in Yugoslavia, and the campaign was launched to stop a Genocide currently in progress, not one that happened in 1988 with the support of President Bush.
Aside from this he asserts that there really is a liberal media bias, he attacks Islam as a religion, he says the U.S. should withdraw from the United Nations, claims we should stop supporting the poor, and of course demands an outlawing of abortions but still wants to increase the number of people put to death.
It's no real surprise that he credits noted rascist and isolationist Patrick Buchanan as inspirational on pg 214, this man obviously hates America.

3.0 out of 5 stars Smith wants to join the club June 23 2004
Format:Paperback
In an age where political pundits put out books bashing their opponents left and right, Mark W. Smith wants to join the club of talking heads. To start off, I consider myself a conservative and listen to Sean Hannity on the radio, watch Bill O'Reilly at night, and am constantly tuned into Fox News. But that doesan't mean one has to tow the party line.
Smith starts out with a great idea in titling this book as so (and it even comes with a great membership card in the back!) but the words on the inside don't hold up to what the book's title. Smith does nothing original in this book, repeating claims and allegations and talking points that you can find in pretty much any other conservative pundit's book. Granted, he's not Hannity or Ann Coulter (whose single line quote about Smith is everywhere on this book), but the text is not original. Hannity's Deliver Us From Evil and Coulter's Treason both took a historical look at issues and Smith can't compete.
If you are going to break into the niche of conservative of liberal books, you have to be original if you aren't well known. Hannity (and Colmes, for that matter) can get away with writing a book (his first, Let Freedom Ring) that covers the range of conservative causes because people know who he is. Smith's un-original text won't do much to propel him into pundit stardom.
