9780060854027: Conservatize Me: A Lifelong Lefty's Attempt to Love God, Guns, Reagan, and Toby Keith

It has been said that everyone in America is firmly planted in red or blue—permanently conservative or irreversibly liberal. But are we all really that locked in to the left or the right? A lifelong liberal, John Moe was determined to find out. So he reset his radio dials from NPR to Rush Limbaugh, joined some of today's most influential conservative thinkers for a series of "conversion sessions," made pilgrimages to the Ronald Reagan and Richard M. Nixon museums, and spent the Fourth of July in the most Bush-friendly county in the country, in an attempt to discover if there was actually a conservative trapped inside him yearning to be set free.

Conservatize Me is a fresh, humorous, and highly entertaining look at our country's political landscape, one that will strike a powerful chord with millions of disgruntled Americans while stimulating the mind and tickling the funny bone.

About the Author:

John Moe is a regular contributor to the award-winning humor Web site McSweeneys.net and his stories, commentaries, and short humor pieces have appeared on the NPR programs All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Day to Day, and Only a Game. He lives with his wife and children in Seattle.

From AudioFile:

In the spirit of the popular movie SUPERSIZE ME, humorist/public radio commentator (and de facto liberal/progressive) John Moe searches for the core of conservatism in the USA. His absurd yet dedicated attempt to understand what makes modern American conservatives tick involves changes in his attire, food, company, and hobbies. CONSERVATIZE ME expresses the author's shock at some conservative notions, delivered with just the right tinge of sarcasm and outrage, and his surprise at his agreement with, or at least understanding of, some of their positions. Laugh-out-loud funny and filled with intellectual self-deprecation, Moe's quest makes for a fun listen with a dose of real insight.
