    Shut Up and Sing
    by Laura Ingraham

    Meet the elites. They think you're stupid. They think all freedom loving Americans are stupid. They think patriotism is stupid. They think churchgoing is stupid. They think flag-flying is stupid. They despise families with more than two children. They are sure that where we live -- anywhere but near or in a few major cities -- is an insipid cultural wasteland.

    They think your SUV is evil -- although theirs is absolutely necessary. They think owning a gun is criminal. They think George Bush is an idiot. They even think it's wrong for us to do what we have to do to protect our nation and our loved ones. Worst of all, they think our abiding belief in the goodness of America and its founding principles is naïve and misguided.

    But in this refreshing and blisteringly insightful look at the elites, Shut Up and Sing reveals that it is they, not us, who are the stupid ones -- and that loudmouth liberals like Barbra Streisand would do better to just "shut up and sing."

    Ingraham exposes the outrageous howlers and muddled thinking peddled as wisdom by a rogue's gallery of Hollywood celebs, media yuppies, trial lawyers, multiculturalists, God-haters, and race-relations bullies who are exalted as heroes by the elite.

    Ingraham unmasks the shallowness of elite thinking everywhere it is found: in politics, the media, the ivory tower, arts and entertainment, and even business and international organizations. Nor does she restrict her skewering of the elite only to its natural home, the Democratic Party -- she ably zeroes in on elite enclaves within the GOP as well.

    A few of the ways that Laura Ingraham reveals the elites' true colors:

    • Howard Dean: how this darling of the liberal media suggested that he would compromise or tolerate an erosion of America's military supremacy

    • How the elites use American respect for individual rights to block majority rule

    • Six false beliefs that liberal elites hold about religion -- assumptions they're trying to foist onto the American people

    • Hillary: why her career should remind us that "greed and liberalism go together like oppression and Communism"

    • The central prejudice that unifies all the various factions of liberal elites

    • The antiwar crowd: details that prove once and for all that they're really just anti-American

    • The state of American higher education: the American professor who actually said at the beginning of the Iraq war that he hoped to see ten million American dead (yes, he still has his job)

    • The ugly truth about why the elites tell immigrants to resist assimilation

    • The UN: why this darling of the elites desperately needs to be reformed, reconfigured, and reoriented

    • The appallingly stupid bureaucratic reason why the government releases nearly half of all deportable aliens after their hearings

    • How liberal business elites have made a mockery of the American traditions of hard work, thrift, and honesty

    • Why unabashed patriotism makes many liberals angry, bitter, and belligerent

    • "PeaceSpeak": an uproarious glossary of Leftist terminology

    I saw Ms. Ingraham on Fox tonight. She has no credibility.
