    I received this book from the First Reads contest and was very excited to read it The book was funny in parts, and just plain confusing in other parts If you take offense to strong political views that are not your own, you will probably be offended by this book I gave this book three stars because there were a lot of chapters that I really enjoyed and chuckled out loud I think my favorite chapters were Did We HEar From Oprah and Head of the Country Oh, and I can totally understand why he hates [...]

    I don t read keep books in the bathroom, but this book would fit in well to the category of bathroom books, books with quick, short, readable and not too heavy sections that are usually meant to be amusing I understand this book was originally written as blog posts, so that must be the reason for the style.I found the book amusing, although I m not much of a fan of political humor, especially if I m sitting somewhere to the left of it My other criticism would be that sometimes the writer lays it [...]

    Unfortunately, this was not a book for me The prose was fine, but there wasn t enough of a hook to interest me Memoir personal essay, unless highly, highly interesting and unique, needs to tie stories into a larger context, otherwise it simply becomes personal anecdote This one didn t aim big enough.

  7. Cheryl Anne

    I found this funny despite not having the depth of political knowledge to appreciate all of the sarcasm Maybe it was because of that lack of reference that I found his formula of taking a situation and making a fantastical hyperbole of it wearing a little thin towards the end.
