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 “teabaggers”—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 the control of theocrats.
