This "New York Times" best-selling polemic exposes the fringe elements calling the shots in the post-Bush GOP - and provides a roadmap to understanding the politics of personal crisis and redemption that unites them. "Republican Gomorrah" is a bestiary of dysfunction from the dark heart of the Republican Party. An instant bestseller, it exposes the extreme right wing forces - the so-called 'tea-baggers' - that have taken over the party and spearheaded grassroots protests against the Obama administration. It shows how these forces are the ones that establishment Republicans - like John McCain and Mitt Romney - must bow to if they have any hope of running for President. It reveals why Sarah Palin was the logical choice of a party in control of theocrats. Award-winning journalist Max Blumenthal explains how a culture of personal crisis and scandal has defined the radical right, transforming the character of the Republican Party for the next generation and setting the stage for future of American politics.
