Monica, check out Al and try Kava Kava (it will help your angry persona)

In the grand satirical tradition of Swift, Rabelais, and Twain comes Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Idiot And Other Observations, a scathing—but uncompromisingly fair—look at America's largest talk show host and the rest of the Republican right. Penned by the Emmy award-winning Saturday Night Live writer whom John Podhoretz of the New York Post has called "the man responsible for some of the most brilliant political satire of our time," Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot and Other Observations tackles the issues and the politicians in ways few have dared. On the subject of Rush Limbaugh, Franken lets the facts speak for themselves. Listen to Rush, the "rugged individualist" and enemy of government handouts, explain how his second wife made him stop sitting around the house eating junk food and go file for unemployment insurance. And learn all of Rush's several explanations for how he avoided the draft. Of course, when it comes to draft-dodging Republicans, Rush isn't alone. Reading Al's Vietnam short story, "Operation Chickenhawk," you'll savor the exploits of Privates Limbaugh, Gramm, Quayle, Buchanan, Gingrich, and George Will as Lieutenant Oliver North leads them kicking and screaming into combat. And don't miss Al's informative discussions with the man who has "the easiest job in America": Rush Limbaugh's fact-checker. And much, much more.

"This book establishes Al Franken as a master of political humor...
a delight to read and certain to appeal to readers of any
political persuasion whose spirit hasn't been completely
broken by the state of current U.S. politics."
--The Washington Times

"Wickedly funny."

"Funny, angry and intelligent."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A very funny book... [Franken] picks the scabs off every logical
inconsistency, factual error or act of malice he can find in contemporary conservatism...
this book destroys [Limbaugh]."
--USA Today

"A laugh-out-loud funny book...
[Franken's] points are swiftly and deftly made, and his sense of
humor about the current carnival of political grotesques is badly needed."
--Star-Tribune (Minneapolis)

"He's back, and his wit is sharper than ever."
--The Boston Phoenix
