"The Case for Impeachment" by Dave Lindorff and Barbara Olshansky

I will soon be posting a review of this book, but I wanted to hype it already because anything Dave Lindorff writes is bound to be good.

Greg Palast's new book---Buy it!

Greg says:
Just wanted to let you know my new book hits the street on June 6, Armed Madhouse: Who's Afraid of Osama Wolf?, China Floats Bush Sinks, the Scheme to Steal 2008, No Child's Behind Left and other Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Class War, the longest subtitle in publishing history. It's out July 7 in the UK. Do me a favor -- buy it right now. You can order it on my site, through Amazon, at www.GregPalast.com <http://www.GregPalast.com>, your local book store, whatever.

Anne Coulter's out that day too, 06-06-06, in honor of her father's birthday, and I'll be damned if she takes our spot on the Times list.

This is my best journalism yet, worst jokes, a full-color Secret History of the War over Oil in Iraq, Republican Party caging lists (say what?) and a killer recipe for shrimp curry.

It launches in NYC on June 13 at Ethical Culture Society 7pm -- joined by Amy Goodman, Paul Krugman and Randi Rhodes. Find another 20 US/UK cities at my website.

The Best Democracy Money Can Buy helped kick off a national discussion of the racial jiggering of elections. Maybe this book can bust the media omerta over The Topic which dare not speak its name: Class War.

Why are rich people rich?

Dave the Nazi (from my work) told me that it's unfair to tax rich people more than poor people. He said that they're rich because they "worked harder and made smarter decisions."

I had two words for him: Paris Hilton.

The sad part is that, as well off as Dave the Nazi may be as he approaches early retirement, the new tax cuts are not even going to touch him. He's not THAT rich. And yet, in his tiny little republican heart, he really believes this shit. Amazing.
