Foreword by Bernard Goldberg

"For years," Burt Prelutsky says, "the ranks of the Right were so bereft of amusing people they had to point to William F. Buckley Jr. as their token funnyman. Finally, thank God, P. J. O'Rourke came along. Now he was really funny. I mean, on purpose."
Welcome to the world of Burt Prelutsky, the man who invented political incorrectness. A delightful work of social commentary, “Conservatives Are From Mars, Liberals Are From San Francisco” is a rant about just about everything the loony Left says and does that offends him. Along the way, writes Bernard Goldberg in the foreword, he “captures the whole sorry, snobby, hypocritical mess that has become modern-day liberalism.”
Among Prelutsky’s observations:
- On politicians: "If you have a politician for a friend, you don't need an enemy."
- On lawyers: "How is it that in a society in which everything from toys to toasters comes with dire warnings attached, lawyers don't?"
- On working people: "While liberals sing folk songs celebrating the wonderful folk who build the bridges, till the soil, and make the world run, they just don't want them to vote."
”Most of the conservatives I know,” Prelutsky writes, “including myself, started out somewhere else on the political spectrum and evolved through time and knowledge and experience. I personally do not know of a single case of an individual evolving in the other direction. I will leave it to the Darwinists to make of that what they will.”
In 101 short, pithy chapters Prelutsky applies his biting wit and wisdom to the big issues of the day. To quote him: "So rightwingers, dig in and enjoy. Liberals, dig in and wise up."

“In snappy, highly readable little essays, the author employs acerbic wit and hard-headed logic to expose the pervasive lunacies of political correctness. Most darts are well-aimed at hypocritical, sanctimonious liberals, but he also takes good shots at other types of foolishness.” – Dan Sonnenschein, Vancouver, British Columbia
“Always on target and on top of the contemporary issues. His observations and prognostications carry the reader along the path of common sense and sanity.” – D.L. Burton, Temple, Texas
“… really hits the nail on the head … I found myself laughing at his commentaries of current issues and also scared because they're so true.” – Helen Ross, Seattle, Wash.
