I don't know about that. I'm certainly not left-wing (nor am I right-wing.....I find both sides very flawed) and I loved the book and didn't see an indictment against either side.
I'm very glad to read this. This is part of birthday gift for me soon, and I would've been very disappointed if it was a huge "slam right wing" book.
Oh, I dunno...it felt pretty "slam right-wing" to me. Or, at least, Bush and Cheney-era right wing. If you're a huge fan, let's say, of Bush and Cheney politics, you may find the main bad guy in the book too cartoonish. If, however, you think Cheney WAS a cartoon, then you'll enjoy the villain immensely.
Finished the book a few weeks ago, and even having read your opinion first, I don't see the political spin you have proposed here.
