Created "for progressive voters with a sense of fury and humor," this book lists the top 50 reasons to vote the Republicans out of the White House in the upcoming election. The writing style is forthright and provocative, with incendiary allegations backed up by numerous quotations and rigorous statistics. Essays include "The Bankrupting of America"; "John Ashcroft Is Watching"; "Shrubonomics"; "Bet on Terrorism for Fun and Profit!" and "George's Daddy (and George's Granddaddy)." They all lead up to reason number one, "He Stole the 2000 Election," which is summed up in the following way: "The end result is a national disgrace: a phony election illegitimately putting into office a sorry excuse for a man. For this reason alone, Bush deserves to be rightfully snubbed in 2004, to restore any basic level of legitimacy to a government that is supposed to be of the people, by the people, and for the people." Contributors include Greg Palast, Russ Kick, Jonathan Vankin, James Ridgeway, Robert Anton Wilson, and Robbie Conal.
