Book-of-the-Month club, Kook division

Oh, lordy, can't wait for this book. And don't miss the publisher's blurb for "The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy: The Untold Story of How Democratic Operatives, Eccentric Billionaires, Liberal Activists, and Assorted Celebrities Tried to Bring Down a President--and Why They'll Try Even Harder Next Time" by Byron York:
Indeed, the Left's failure to oust President Bush in 2004 has obscured the fact that this new movement has transformed American politics. York documents the staggering scope of liberals' efforts-the record sums of money spent, the "shell game" financial maneuvers, the close coordination between "nonpartisan" groups and the Democratic Party, the revolutionary approaches to fund-raising and reaching out to voters, the pioneering use of movies and websites as campaign tools, and more.

Plus: "Al Franken rants about the evils of the right wing." No!

Rejected alternate subtitle: "How Democrats are almost, but not quite, as evil as Republicans."

Perhaps you were wondering what was next up for Mr. York? Here's the working title from his next one-hand read: "Vanquish: The untold story of how conservatives won't rest until every last Democrat is hunted down, shot in the head, and peed on."
