Bernard Goldberg in 100 People who are Screwing Up America (and Al Franken is #37) has a list, with detailed information, of the 100 people he believes are "screwing up" America.

The America Bashers, according to Goldberg, include the Hollywood crowd who believe they know it all—the cultural elites who really know they know it all (that includes what's best for all of the stupid folks who litter America's landscape,),the elite media who attempt to create and skew the news; and the intellectuals who teach our children their views (not necessarily the truth, in America's colleges).

You'll be able to guess some of the people who made the list but you might not be familiar with their complete story. Some people you might not recognize but their stories are equally as fascinating as those you know because Goldberg believes they are pulling some important behind the scenes "strings" that are and have the potential of "screwing us up" further.

The sentence that conservatives who read this book will be repeating until it seems like a mantra is a quote by journalist and author John Underwood: "In a society where anything goes, everything, eventually, will. A society that stands for nothing will fall for anything—and then, of course, will simply fall."

Conservatives will undoubtedly embrace Goldberg's book and liberals will most likely be enraged by their portrayal.

Armchair Interviews says: No matter your political bent, Goldberg's book is a "must read."
