In Surrounded by Idiots, Mike Gallagher,
one of the top radio talk show hosts
in America, takes us to the front lines of the
unprecedented cultural and political war
confronting all decent Americans
The 2004 election was a watershed moment in our nation's history, and while it was shocking to the left to see so many red states on the electoral map, to conservatives it was just an affirmation of what they'd known all along -- conservatives are the mainstream and liberals are the fringe.
It is not the time to rest or take things for granted, Mike Gallagher argues. Not at all. "Maintaining America's role as the greatest nation in the world means we must stay the course," he writes, adding, "Liberal idiocy surrounds us all. It threatens to destroy the values and lifestyles that millions of us cherish."
The left has targeted every value and standard, principle and idea, concept of God, family, honor, duty, country, and decency that we hold dear. As the nation battles for its very soul in this post-9/11 world, we have Mike Gallagher to help fight against the agenda-driven liberal lunatics.
The liberal loons are everywhere and Gallagher takes them all on: disgraced President Bill Clinton, and -- perish the thought! -- possible future president and carpetbagger Hillary Clinton; the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), an organization that values the lives of bugs over humans; and the anti-Bush propagandist filmmaker, Michael Moore.
Then there's Gallagher's confrontation with the unpredictable, angry, and bitter bestselling author, liberal pundit, and comedian Al Franken -- the story of his anti-Dixie Chicks concert in protest of their un-American comments -- and race-baiters like Al Sharpton and big-mouth out-of-touch Hollywood elitists like Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, and Whoopi Goldberg.
Surrounded by Idiots is an important -- not to mention entertaining -- look at where America is today and the possibility that the future of America will only get brighter.

Mike Gallagher is a talk radio host syndicated nationally by the Salem Radio Network. He also appears regularly on the Fox News Channel as a contributor and guest host. Gallagher is a pundit for the popular news and opinion website Newsmax.com. Gallagher and his wife live in New York City and in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.From Publishers Weekly:
Conservative radio talker and Fox News regular Gallagher celebrates his career, his views, and his beloved liberal-Democratic wife in this chatty, self-confident debut. "The left is trying to destroy the pillars of our great country," Gallagher says. After a foreword by Sean Hannity, regular listeners will expect—and enjoy—attacks on familiar targets: Bill Clinton, Michael Moore, the Dixie Chicks, animal-rights groups, Hollywood liberals, parents who won't spank their kids and immigrants who don't or can't learn clear English ("Heh-yo, Hoppy China, yoh ohrduh peez?"). One chapter describes Gallagher's heated interview with "smarmy, arrogant" pollster John Zogby, who wrongly predicted a John Kerry win in 2004. Yet the right-wing host spends as much time, and perhaps has more fun, with anecdotes from his life and career. "Breaking into talk radio" at 17, the South Carolina native won a New York City radio berth before going national. After 9/11, he explains, "it was liberating to view the world from the perspective of Us versus Them." Even more liberating was Gallagher's successful battle with fat—he explains how he lost, and has kept off, 70 pounds. (July)
