The Nastiest Things Ever Said about Republicansby Martin Higgins
Synopses & Reviews
“President Nixon was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning.”
Hunter S. Thompson
Oh, those hateful, mean-spirited, red-meat-loving Republicans. They worship at the altar of political power, tolerate little dissent among the party faithful, and like to stick it to the common man. As President Lyndon B. Johnson once said, “Lincoln was right about not fooling all the people all the time. But the Republicans havent given up trying.”
Now with The Nastiest Things Ever Said About Republicans, you have ample proof of the GOPs misguided ways and thickheaded beliefs.
Make this compilation your go-to source for quotes about Republicans. The book will certainly come in handy whenever youre going up against your right-wing adversaries. Give those red-state bullies a taste of their own medicine. Make them see red for a change. Choose a zinger. Let the quotes fly, and stand back. Good luck on the political battlefield.
Book News Annotation:
A San Francisco stand-up comic, writer, and filmmaker collects classic and current quips, gaffes, anecdotes, and other observations about government in general and by/about Republication politicians and pundits. One nonpolitical blooper: there is no quote from Kurt Vonnegut on p. 192 (as per the index). Dates and sources of material would be welcome for the next edition/ administration.

Why let the Republicans have all the fun? In the counterpart to the The Nastiest Things Ever Said About Republicans, the elephants are the butt of the joke. Included in this outrageously funny volume are the best lines from politicians, entertainers, and writers, including Gore Vidal, Steve Martin, Gerald Ford, Martin Sheen, Bob Dole, Lyndon B. Johnson, Abbie Hoffman, Ted Koppel, Johnny Carson, Matt Groening, Robin Williams, Mort Sahl, Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Walter Winchell, John F. Kennedy, and David Letterman, among many other notables. No fan of comedy or politics should be caught without this volume.
About the Author
The selfsame Martin Higgins has won awards for his films. A card-carrying political wag and an independent thinker, Higgins enjoys deflating egos on both sides of the aisle. He currently splits his time between San Francisco and Denver, where he lives with his lovely wife and two swell teenaged daughters.
