I just want to point out that every newspaper which bothered to fact-check quickly disproved all the allegations made by Unfit For Command.

If you must restrict yourself to reading books that present a viewpoint that you're already on the side of, read something by George Will, William Safire or Stephen Carter. At least they're real conservatives. If you want to try the other side and you don't have the patience for Chomsky (for which I cannot blame you), read Al Franken's books (sort of like Michael Moore without the marketing and inflammatory fact distortion.) I particularly recommend Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them, especially if you're under the delusion that Ann Coulter knows what she's talking about.

Or just go to http://www.nytimes.com and read Paul Krugman's column. He's both credible and readable.
