A liberal political satirist examines the frequently ridiculous world of American politics, showcasing the absurdities of presidential hopefuls and America's elite policymakers

Blackwell North Amer
In the grand satirical tradition of Swift, Rabelais, and Twain comes - Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Idiot - And Other Observations - a scathing - but uncompromisingly fair - look at America's largest talk show host and the rest of the Republican right.
Penned by the Emmy award-winning Saturday Night Live writer whom John Podhoretz of the New York Post has called "the man responsible for some of the most brilliant political satire of our time," Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot tackles the issues and the politicians in ways few have dared.
On the subject of Rush Limbaugh, Franken lets the facts speak for themselves. Listen to Rush, the "rugged individualist" and enemy of government handouts, explain how his second wife made him stop sitting around the house eating junk food and go file for unemployment insurance. And learn all of Rush's several explanations for how he avoided the draft.
Of course, when it comes to draft-dodging Republicans, Rush isn't alone. Reading Al's Vietnam short story, "Operation Chickenhawk," you'll savor the exploits of Privates Limbaugh, Gramm, Quayle, Buchanan, Gingrich, and George Will as Lieutenant Oliver North leads them kicking and screaming into combat.
And don't miss Al's informative discussions with the man who has "the easiest job in America": Rush Limbaugh's fact-checker. And much, much more.

Funny, but very dated. It was so easy for me to forget the backgrounds of prominent Republican agents. This book is a grim reminder that believing stump speeches without knowing a candidate's history is a poor basis on which to cast a vote.

And, yes, I know Limbaugh has never been a candidate, but he's not the only personality addressed in this book.

That's Senator Alan S. Franken to you.

Why are politicians such children? Seriously, "a big fat idiot"? If I rolled my eyes any farther back, they'd stay there.

Picked this up on the free shelves downstairs. Only 20 years old and still funny! It was eerie how little things have changed in 20 years; just a different cast of characters.
