-We ARE building a Vast Left Wing Conspiracy.- With those words, the influential left-wing blogger Daily Kos confirmed the argument of National Review's Byron York in this fascinating and meticulously reported book. The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy provides a startling behind-the-scenes look at the well-oiled (and well-funded) political machine built by Democratic operatives, eccentric billionaires, liberal activists, and assorted celebrities. And in this newly updated paperback edition, York exposes how this powerful movement is redoubling its efforts for the 2006 elections, with its eye on the ultimate target: the White House in 2008. The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy is a stunning look at how the Left is radically remaking the American political scene.
