Some of the lies are pretty major considering who's telling them, some are laughably minor, but around them Franken weaves a case to show just how downright dishonest and manipulative the current leaders of America and their high profile media supporters really are.
This book will probably be hated by those on the right, but it shouldn't be, when lies are told by politicians and the media those lies are being sold to everyone regardless of their political persuasion, the fact that you might have a natural tendency to want to believe them is irrelevant.
When a right wing politician lies he lies to the right too, and by doing so undermines the position of those on the right.

 Bookreporter.com - LIES: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them by Al Franken
LIES and the majority of Franken's skits for Saturday Night Live have a number of things in common: they have an air of "Oh, aren't I clever" about them that suffocates whatever humor might otherwise have been found; they go on (and on) for far too long; and ultimately, aren't funny.
While LIES purports to be satire (particularly when the author is the subject of a trademark infringement suit), satire is supposed to be funny.
LIES was written with TeamFranken, and Franken graciously pictures the group and introduces them, telling us enough about each one so we know that, while fine people they may be, we will never have any of them over for a barbecue.
