FOX News Radio’s Todd Starnes
presents “Dispatches From Bitter America”

Todd Starnes, the host of Fox News &  Commentary, jumps right into the middle of the culture war with his latest book, “Dispatches From Bitter America.” (February 1, 2012/ B&H Publishers).
President Obama once declared that people who cling to their guns are bitter Americans. So Starnes, who describes himself as a “gun-toting, chicken-eating, son of a Baptist,” decided to travel across the country to determine if what the president said was true. His book is filled with hilarious satire and biting commentary on the culture war. He also was given exclusive interviews with folks like Mike Huckabee, Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin, and Paula Deen.
“These are conversations I’ve had with regular folks who have deep concerns about the direction we are going as a nation,” Starnes said. “It’s not so much that Americans are bitter. I just think we have a bad case of indigestion.”
Starnes also gives his answers on these questions:
-Did President Obama really try to remove the Nativity from the White House?
-Why did a school system banish cupcakes and brownies?
-Could your pizza delivery guy determine the kind of healthcare you receive?
-Why is daddy wearing a dress?
His book is already causing a firestorm of discussion and a hefty dose of laughter:
“Todd Starnes combines sound research with his signature wit to tell the stories of regular Americans who are standing up to a secular movement that seeks to remove all religious expression from the public square.  This is a compelling book that puts our entire existence into the perspective of eternity.”
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.

“A self-proclaimed gun-toting, chicken-eating son-of-a-Baptist, Todd Starnes uses Southern sensibilities mixed with home spun humor to take us along his journey across America. In Dispatches From Bitter America this ‘Great American’ finds that not only is our American way of life under attack, but also that most Americans do in fact love God, this country, their families and are anything but bitter!”
-Sean Hannity

“Todd Starnes captures the sentiments many Americans feel as they helplessly watch the traditional values they grew up with being stomped out and over-ruled by political correctness.  Todd’s stories will strike a chord , whether its “The War on Christmas”, “Tag, You’re Out” or “The Chocolate Czar”.  Brownies now banned from school?  Bah hum-bug.” – Gretchen Carlson, Co-host, Fox and Friends
