Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

F is for fun and L is for laughs in this rollicking romp through the alphabet poking good natured fun at Washington politics and politicians. The book takes unerring aim at the foibles and frailties of the political class and their inside-the-beltway blustering. With illustrations provided by award-winning artist Mark Anderson and verses and text written by Washington Post political writer Dana Milbank, this is political satire at its best. O is for Obama is a witty, non-partisan, and equal-opportunity ribbing of not just out-of-touch politicians, but also of greedy businessmen, tone-deaf bureaucrats, and ivory-tower elites that no frustrated voter fed up with Washington will want to be without.
