Synopses & Reviews
With the sacred cows of American politics practically begging for someone to puncture their pomposity, Will Durst hits them in the funniest places. In The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing, this equal-opportunity offender swats both partisan political piñatas from both sides of the spectrum upside their heads. From the utter incompetence of the Bushies and Dick Cheney's destruction of the Constitution to the spineless antiwar posturing of the Congress and Hillary Clinton's unmatched ability to play fast and loose with the truth, everyone takes their licks. Claiming to represent only those 60 percent of Americans in the middle, Durst attacks the fringe for its lack of common sense and Starbucks-like semantic corruption: he agrees that marketing a small as "tall" and a medium as "grande" is a great way to sell coffee, but having politicians chase "venti"-sized vote totals by appealing to the extremes is hardly a good way to run a country.
