Explains how the religious right and extreme conservatives have taken over the Republican party. He begins in the 1960's and brings it up to 2007. It is interesting as he shows the maneuverings behind the scenes of how these groups gain a hold on the GOP and how they only care about their agenda and not society as a whole. They don't care the damage that is done as long as they get their way. He is very open in his opinions of the party leaders and party nominees (losers and winners) during this time. I found it eye-opening at times but I was not surprised by his opinions. I just did not realize how bad it was. I did laugh over some of his observations. This is as timely today as it was when written. I wish he were still alive so we could hear his opinion of what has happened since 2007 to now.
