Book Description

You think the presidential election is funny? Check out this presidential election.
Daniel Klein, co-author, Plato & a Platypus Walk into a Bar, said, "Fools and Knaves is political satire of the highest order. Don't miss it."
Jim Johnson is a wealthy businessman, a “job creator” who pockets corporate board fees, cheats at golf, and trumpets shocking opinions. After he’s exposed for depreciating his wife on his tax return, professing belief in nine gods, and conspiring to peddle worthless health products, the media proclaim him the flavor of the month in the Presidential sweepstakes.
Johnson refuses to run, but he continues to broadcast his outlandish plans – replacing The Star Spangled Banner with Money (That’s What I Want), crippling terrorism by requiring terrorists to join unions, offering incentives for corporate greed, and creating two new political parties, the Fools and the Knaves. The media is baffled and appalled, but voters love Johnson and scream for him to enter the race.
“I will not run,” Johnson proclaims, and then, of course, he runs. In a four party race, (Republicans, Democrats, Knaves, and Fools) he leads the polls going into late October. If he can survive the Great Debate, Jim Johnson will be President of the United States.
Johnson’s campaign for president is the most historical--and hysterical--ever. The other candidates make Donlad Trump, Herman Cain, Michele Bachman, and Rick Santorum seem restrained, moderate, and responsible. The outcome is never in doubt: Somebody will be elected President. But who?
Fools And Knaves is political satire that rivals today’s news.

5.0 out of 5 stars How could the 2012 Presidential race get funnier? June 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I didn't think it could be possible to make the 2012 Presidential race any funnier, but FOOLS AND KNAVES gets the job done. The candidate's regard for Jesus-based governance, a new national anthem and trivia questions for TSA screeners finally brings attention to the most important issues of the day. I was also gratified to see the theory of Idiot Design, also known as Unintelligent Design, finally get some attention. We have to teach the controversy. Read it! FOOLS AND KNAVES is a big improvement on reality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes Laughing Matter June 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm going to take this book into the voting booth with me. I had stopped laughing at politics until I read Fools and Knaves, which a friend recommended to me. I don't know if I've ever read any political satire that's as funny as this. I'm passing it on to all my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is really funny. June 12, 2012
By Daniel
Format:Kindle Edition
I did think the Republican primary season (Send in the Clowns!) was pretty funny, but this book gets under the surface about why a lot of what politicians do and say doesn't make much sense. And it cracked me up how funny it is. The characters reminded me of some of the real candidates, but they were also good fictional individuals, and the stuff about candidate Johnson and his family were also a great part of the book. It was all absurd, and good satire -- I'm really into politics, so this worked great for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, Funny, Downright Hilarious June 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fools and Knaves is political satire of the highest order. Reading it, I laughed often and deeply. It's a wild, ironic, sometimes-disturbingly-evocative tale of current U.S. politics and the 2012 Presidential race. The plot has sharp and unexpected twists. The characters are bizarre yet sorta familiar. The author has a keen wit and a superb gift for irony. A Terrific Read

This guy has a witty and wicked perspective on the upcoming presidential campaigns...all filtered through the eye of a Huff Post comedy writer. At 99 cents, one of the best, most cost-efficient laugh generators around!
