Author and radio host Jim Hightower's got his branding irons red-hot and ready to scorch "the Bushies" and their ilk, along with other corporate road hogs. With gentle barbs and Texas charm, Hightower twangs his way through a litany of crimes and moral felonies carried out by some of America's most well-known leaders and companies. His call for fairness to American laborers at the mercy of Wal-Mart and the sweatshops whose goods fill its shelves reveals a heart as big as Texas. Hightower manages to provide data to support his accusations, so the hog-roast isn't entirely fun and games at the Right's expense. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
