I need a "politics for dummies" book.

I'd like to be knowledgeable about politics enough to be able to state my opinion, engage in debates, and the like. I'm a one-issue person (gay marriage) and I'd like to discover my own beliefs about politics so that I no longer have to sit quietly when my friends get into it.

Lies My Teacher Told Me About Columbus Are Being Taught Still

My daughter's teacher told her Columbus thought the earth was flat and the usual story about falling off the edge of the earth. As far as I can tell this is just not true, and the teacher should know it. Should I bother asking about this? I know it's insignificant, but it bothers me to know she's being taught something that just isn't true.
