    Oh yeah, great book but I already read it along with all of Michael Moore's as well. The O'Reilly book is one I'm definitely picking up this weekend along with others. This is great, thank you again!

    Again, this is not a right-wing book, but it IS one about politics and history: "Feeding Frenzy" by Larry Sabato. It looks at several major political scandals -- Gary Hart, for example -- and the role the media played in creating or reporting them. I think Sabato reissued it a few years ago with the Clinton scandal included, but I may be wrong. Anyway, I thought it was a really interesting read.

    David Brooks proves that entertaining conservatism isn't an oxymoron. "Bobos in Paradise," which is more of a social science than political book, is really insightful and even funny.
    P.J. O'Rourke ("Give War a Chance") is another funny one.
    I think Dennis Miller is an official conservative now, too.
