Al Franken's new book, "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right" won't be out for a month but through the magic of the internet, it's already zooming up the bestseller list (pre-sales on Amazon). If you haven't seen this database yet, it's well worth a look, if nothing else than as a tracking device for the urbane pop culturai.
Also, jinxed and jived, Roger Ailes calls out the dogs of civil court, suing Franken for trademark infringement. Sounds like more fluff for the Sunday Morning Gasbags. SNL was never so funny as reality.
