Synopses & Reviews
My fellow Americans,
President John F. Kennedy once famously said, "Hey, is that blond intern eighteen yet?" He also said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."
We've changed a lot since JFK asked us all to pitch in. We've become a nation of narcissistic, yoga-mat-toting, service-dog-having, absentee dads and gluten-free, hand-wringing, hypochondriac moms of overcaffeinated (yet somehow still lazy) twerking tweens. And our government is an inept bureaucracy incapable of doing anything except getting in our wallets and in our way.
That is why I, Adam Carolla, hereby declare myself Candidate Carolla. President Me is my manifesto, my vision for a better place . . . free of Big Government, barefoot fliers, lazy hipsters who'd rather "Occupy" than work, and the other things that are bringing our country down. With my cabinet appointees, my list of worthy and necessary presidential ManDates, and tons of great ideas for fixing our health care, education, energy, and even national parks systems . . . behold an America we can be proud of. The America I see in MY HEAD.
You're welcome in advance.
"Comedian Carolla delivers the down and dirty about who is really at fault for the country's woes and how he would fix things were he president. He airs traditional conservative views, as well as his own wish list of inane and amusing changes to the country he wants to improve, such as turning lanes in California and strip clubs. As a TV show and podcast host, he is, for the most part, a perfect narrator. He nails the punch lines and knows how to keep his voice interesting. There are parts of the recording where Carolla goes off script, ad-libbing riffs off his own material, which is one of the perks of the audio edition; however, it is not always clear if he is going off script intentionally or stumbling. Fans of the Adam Carolla Show podcast will enjoy all his performance has to offer, but those unfamiliar with him are not likely to be as easily enthralled. An IT Books hardcover.

Imagine a world where New York Times
bestselling author, comedian, actor, television, and podcast host Adam Carolla is the President of the United States. Cant do it? You dont have to! Adam has done it for you!
Podcast king Adam Carolla first shared his unique, but always funny world view in his New York Times bestseller In Fifty Years Well All Be Chicks—but hes not done.
In President Me, Carolla shares his vision for a different, better America free from big issues like big government down to small problems like hotel alarm clock placement. Running on an anti-narcissism platform, President Carolla calls for a return to the values of an earlier time when stew and casserole were on every dinner table and there were no “service dogs” on airplanes. President Me hits right at the heart of what makes our country really annoying, and offers a plan to make all of our lives, but mostly Adams, much better.
