    Finished Thomas Frank's "Pity the Billionaire: The Hard times swindle and the unlikely comeback of the right". He wrote "Whats the Matter with Kansas" another good book. Pity basically exposes how the right in this country turned the biggest capitalist breakdown since the great depression into a political opportunity (the tea party). Not as good as the "kansas" book, unless you like a lot of rebuttals to what glen beck says
