Various Air America Radio All-Stars have a new book out called "Air America - The Playbook: What a Bunch of Left Wing Media Types have to Teach you about a World Gone Right", and if, for instance, you do not find the "Campus Progress" post here completely incoherent, buy the book.
Just like AAR itself, it's taking the world by storm. Currently ranked at #2692 on Amazon, it features essays or something by: Chuck D, Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, Thom Hartmann, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Rachel Maddow, Mike Malloy (contrary to rumors, he wasn't airbrushed out of the book), Mike Papantonio, Randi Rhodes, Mark Riley, and Sam Seder.
Three names are conspicuously absent from that list. Janeane Garofalo was apparently too busy writing "Clear: My Struggle from Comic To Radio Host to Ridding Myself of B0dy Thet@ns". Al Franken does however provide an Introduction to the book. Of course, it might have been written by one of his Harvard assistants; if it's actually funny it's the latter. And, of course, the "Ringmaster" was busy promulgating the AAR lifestyle on television.
