PRAISE FOR DANIEL KURTZMAN ""You should pick up this book before your next dinner party."" Gayle King, editor-at-large of O, The Oprah Magazine and host of ""The Gayle King Show"" on Oprah and Friends ""Daniel Kurtzman doesn't have a political axe to grind. He has two axes to grind. And he does it with the sharpest wit seen in these bipartisan parts for quite some time. Crisscrossing the aisle with wicked glee; no matter which book you finish first, you'll immediately want to run out and get the other one to discover what he said about your side. Just remember to wear a disguise."" Will Durst, political satirist and author of The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing ""No one knows political satire like Daniel Kurtzman."" Andy Borowitz, creator of The Borowitz Report and author of The Republican Playbook ""When the folks over at JibJab are looking for a fair and balanced laugh, Daniel Kurtzman's our guy. His How to Win a Fight with a Liberal / Conservative will have you in stitches regardless of your political affiliation!"" Gregg Spiridellis, co-founder of JibJab.com
