Read about the hypocrisy, bigotry, cowardice, idiocy and just plain lunacy that have defined this political year while supporting People For the American Way!
As the holidays approach and I reflect on the work we accomplished this year, there’s no denying that 2010 has been a year to remember. That’s why the timing couldn’t be more perfect for a new e-book by satirist Paul Slansky, The Year of Living Shamelessly: Political Lowlights of 2010.
A portion of proceeds from the book will go to People For the American Way, making it a great last minute holiday gift that will support our efforts to fight the most radically right-wing Congress that will convene in Washington in just a few weeks. You can easily send copies as gifts via email through the website.
The Year of Living Shamelessly guides readers through a remarkable year in American politics and the unforgettable personalities that drove it. Some highlights include:
- the congressional candidate who moonlighted as a Nazi reenactor;
- the lieutenant governor who compared food stamps for the needy to “feeding stray animals”;
- the Senate candidate who ran away from a press conference;
- and the former president who said he missed “being pampered.”

As we prepare for 2011, People For the American Way needs your continued support to face the major challenges before us.
Give your early membership renewal gift by December 31st to help us gear up to face a new year full of peril for our freedoms and our nation.
In January, a new Congress will convene, with a Tea Party/Republican-ruled House of Representatives and a strengthened GOP contingent in the U.S. Senate.
In just a few weeks, we will be facing the most radically right-wing congressional delegation in modern times. And with it, we will also face an avalanche of legislation with the goal of reversing decades of progress. We must be prepared to face assaults against … civil rights … free speech … the federal courts … education … gay and lesbian equality … women’s rights … and so much more.
And with your renewed membership contribution, People For the American Way will be YOUR voice against the Right.
Our nation has never needed PFAW more than it does today. And now, more than ever, we need you to make sure we are strong enough to stand up to the Tea Partiers in Congress, and their brand of corporate subservience married to right-wing cultural extremism.
Make sure PFAW has the tools necessary to successfully fight the incoming right-wing Congress … by making your year-end membership gift right away … before December 31st.
