9780785260578: Liberwocky: What Liberals Say and What They Really Mean

Laid out like a dictionary A-to-Z (much like Ambrose Bierce's Devil's Dictionary), Liberwocky takes a close and comedic look at how liberals use and abuse language to manipulate the citizenry and their attitudes. Having forty years of political and media experience, Gold sees through the trickery of today's political rhetoric. And in this book, he exposes their techniques, their verbal twists and devious turns of phrase, in a way that is both provocative and hilarious. Including sections such as: "Truly Stupid Liberal Ideas" (poking fun at the U.N., Peurto Rican statehood, and voting rights for felons) and "The American Liberal's All Time Enemies List" (fifty conservatives liberals love to hate), this book-both mocking and informative-is an enjoyable romp through the language of modern politics.

About the Author:

Victor Gold is national correspondent for The Washingtonian, covering political affairs and the connection between Washington and Hollywood.  He was deputy press secretary to Barry Goldwater in 1964 and press secretary to Vice President Spiro Agnew. He has served as a speechwriter for George Bush, Gerald Ford, and Bob Dole and has operated as campaign guru for clients as varied as "Big Jim" Folsom and Shirley Temple Black. Gold collaborated with George H.W. Bush for what Chris Matthews called "the best political autobiography of the year," Looking Forward (1987), and recently with Lynn Cheney for the political thriller/comedy, The Body Politic (1988, 2000), described by Publishers Weekly as "a satire of the first order."  Before that, he wrote P-R as in President (1977), I Don't Need You When I'm Right (1974), and So You Want to Be a Liberal (1969).
