I came across a copy of this book in a library a few months back. It's astonishing how dated it is. Granted, political books never have a long shelf life, but this one would have been obsolete after six months. #63 was a woman who had a selective reduction abortion and wrote a column about it. Really, Bernie? She's screwing up America? She was a blogger punching bag at the time Goldberg was writing the book, so he just went ahead and threw her in to fill out the list - 100 is a lot, you know. No one talks about her anymore, and I had to look up her name (Amy Richards, in case anyone was wondering). Colonel of Squirrels (talk) 18:50, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Mikey's "Political Zoo" is another dated one. He lists John McCain as a enemy of conservatism, and predicts Hillary would have been the next DNC nominee. He fails to predict the congressional elections as well. I have a lot of old conservative books from my neocon days, thought I would expose the wingnuttery.Tyrannis (talk) 21:34, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Give 111 Americans screwdrivers and a handful of screws (possibly with 'little rubber jackets on') and this can be improved on. (talk) 17:14, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Um... how can the list in regard to the list of the "most notable" and leave off number 2 on the list. For the list listed to be the most notable, one would expect the list in regard to the most notable list, to list the number 2 person in regard to the list of the most notable list. --PsyGremlinPraat! 17:09, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
Yes, having #1, #3, and #4 on the list while not #2 seems to make it a bit more obvious. Thieh"6+18=24" 19:38, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
FINE I'll update it when I get home, we probably have articles on more of them anyway. ТyTalk. 14:53, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
