Moore takes on the Bush II establishment and tries to expose some of the dirty tricks behind them and other causers of American decline. The book starts off strong with insight into who is running the country and ends on an interesting note about the last days of the Nader campaign (How does Moore remember conversations verbatim?). The problems lies in the weakness of the middle that consists of loosely connected essays that probably couldn\'t find another outlet. Then again, the whole book might have been ignored if it wasn\'t written by--and had the cover plastered with a large picture of--Moore. That is a shame because some of what is written is very important; however, since Moore writes it, it is probably only read by fans that already agree with his views.
