Publisher Comments:

"I don't know if I should Buenos Aires or Bonjour, or... this is such a melting pot. This is so beautiful. I love this diversity. Yeah. There were a whole bunch of guys named Tony in the photo line, I know that."

"We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada. And I think now, isn't that ironic?"

Sometimes she makes perfect sense. Sometimes she channels something deeper than sense. And sometimes she turns a phrase that is destined for immortality. Sarah Palin is not just the most controversial and significant non-office holder in America, she is a font of accidental wit and wisdom. Her truthy public statements--tweeted or spoken, planned or spontaneous--areand#160;endlessly entertaining to fans and foes alike. Jacob Weisberg, whose career as a curator of George W. Bushisms was made famous online, in books, in calendars, and even a DVD, is back with a new, and if possible, even more hilarious, source of malapropisms and mis-statements.

Synopsis:

The accidental wit and wisdom ofand#160;Sarah Palin, drawn verbatim from her public comments, Facebook updates, and tweets, by the head of the SLATEand#160;group and longtime collector and editor of GEORGEand#160;W. BUSHISMS.

Synopsis:

A brilliant parody of the children's classic Goodnight Moon, built around the coming end of the worst presidency ever.

Goodnight Bush: An Unauthorized Parody is a hilarious and poignant visual requiem for the Bush administration. In it we see a childlike George W. Bush tucked safely away in the confines of his own room with all of the toys he's willfully destroyed, abused, or defaced. Complete with a quiet Dick Cheney whispering "hush," this bedtime story lets us finally say goodnight to the disaster that was the last eight years.

Synopsis:

Are the Tea Baggers simply rabble-rousers from the right who hate not getting their way? Is the Coffee Party just a bunch of jittery java nuts without enough money to afford to hire star politicians? 

Coffee, Tea, or Kool-Aid is the one book that examines the issues and helps Americans tell the parties apart (they agree more times than they may care to admit!) while they laugh all the way to the polls. Filled with party history and characters, side-by-side comparisons and contradictions, as well as memorable quotes, slogans, and Venn diagrams, this handy guide spells it all out and injects some humor back into the political dialogue.

Is it too early to celebrate next January? Designed to look, feel and smell like the original (no, really) "Goodnight, Moon" and full of surprises. Certain to be on the gift lists of many this December.
