This quirky little gem takes world leaders and politicians from Genghis Khan to George W. Bush to task for what the authors have dubbed ³logical flimflam.² Cathcart and Klein gleefully deconstruct direct quotes from well-known people and documents to expose the faulty evidence, sources, and reasoning employed as politicians attempt to hoodwink us. Pointed references to current events and the occasional joke add timeliness and spice to the text. Johnny Heller smoothly handles the transitions from the sacred to the profane as the book shifts from the Greek of Aristotle to the often scatological language of the jokes. Heller's brisk pace and great comic timing allow the listener to follow the authors' serious underlying message while still enjoying their humor.
