"For years I've been your doormat, secretary, armor, weapon...everything you needed." But Kay knew that was not entirely true.

And now he had it--in Joanne Stark, tease and tramp. And Joanne Stark was destroying him--destroying Clay Stuart, the guy who was known as Big Daddy Sex, sniffing out all the broads for miles around. "If you ever manage to get rid of her," Kay said, "you'll never know how lucky you are." "Yeah," Clay said. "God knows I'm lucky. I stink with luck."

Don't Think of an Elephant! is the definitive handbook for understanding what happened in the 2004 election and communicating effectively about key issues facing America today. Author George Lakoff has become a key advisor to the Democratic party, helping them develop their message and frame the political debate. In this book Lakoff explains how conservatives think, and how to counter their arguments. He outlines in detail the traditional American values that progressives hold, but are often unable to articulate. Lakoff also breaks down the ways in which conservatives have framed the issues, and provides examples of how progressives can reframe the debate. Lakoff's years of research and work with environmental and political leaders have been distilled into this essential guide, which shows progressives how to think in terms of values instead of programs, and why people vote their values and identities, often against their best interests. "Don't Think of An Elephant!" is the antidote to the last forty years of conservative strategizing and the right wing's stranglehold on political dialogue in the United States. Read it, take action-and help take America back.
