Title Details
What the (Active Verb) Is Wrong with the Right? by Gragg, Shelby & Stefan Petrucha
What the (Active Verb) Is Wrong with the Right?: A Fill-in-the-Blanks Game for the Rest of Us
by Gragg, Shelby & Stefan Petrucha
 
After a long political season of listening to Glenn Beck’s loony rants, Sarah Palin’s off-kilter phraseology, and Rand Paul’s downright oddball elocutions, authors Shelby Gragg and Stefan Petrucha were struck by an astonishing similarity to the beloved fill-in-the-blank games of their childhood. And so the hilarious spoof What the (Active Verb) Is Wrong with the Right? was born.

This laugh-out-loud parody invites readers to create their own fanciful sentences that would make any right-wing nut proud. From the roots of the rabid right (testing our knowledge of the McCarthy hearings and Richard Nixon’s Checkers speech), through the O’Reilly and Hannity ascendancy, and up to the heyday of Glenn and Sarah, What the (Active Verb) Is Wrong with the Right? touches on the greatest hits and the most outrageous misses of contemporary conservative rhetoric.

Including favorites such as Ann Coulter and Ronald Reagan, along with a supporting cast of thousands of tea partiers and irate Fox News viewers, here’s the ultimate impulse buy/graduation gift/stocking stuffer that will provide hours of cathartic and comic relief for the rest of us. Chuckle at the rabid right! Guffaw through O’Reilly and Hannity! Giggle at Glenn and Sarah! And laugh until you weep for the fate of the nation!
