It starts with fill-in-the-blank candidate questions and moves on to a much-desired debate format where candidates are zapped with electricity each time they tell a lie. While Cranky has admitted liberal leanings, no one--Obama included--is off-limits. I love it all, but my favorite parts may be when Cranky runs into Joe Biden at a bar and ends up accepting a babysitting gig for the Obamas, or when he books a coveted interview with God--who is clearly disgusted by the way things are going on this planet he's created for us.
I recommend Send in the Clown Car to anyone who is fed up with the circus in Washington and wants a government that puts people before politics. Because hidden in the humor is a lot of wisdom.
Does Donald Trump have dignity or was Sarah Palin REALLY a contestant on Jeopardy? Cranky takes on these subjects with a humorous take not known to man before.
Can't afford a summer vacation? Well let Mr. Cuss take you on a trip into Ayn Rand's world or how about occupying Times Square with him? Cranky has it all in this book and not even Keith Obermann can unravel the Glenn Beck network like our New York state author can.
Not into heavy duty political subjects? Well tackle "America Needs New Holidays" or enjoy a blog by Abe Lincoln. What? Maybe he is related to little Newtie Gingrich who also has a say in this book.
If this does not tease you interest then you must be some sort of elitist. HMMM- didn't PBS agree to disagree that they were not elitists either?
Maybe they were all graduates of Coinspiracy U- of course; that's a chapter too!
As the Birdcage Owners of America wrote on the back cover:
"This is the book of the year!"
If it excites Anthony Weiner then what have you got to lose?
Okay, don't answer that!
But what I appreciated most about the book (well, besides the piece about Abraham Lincoln's blog, or the brilliantly executed (no pun intended!) satire on joining the NRA, or the very astute modern fable "Louie Liberal and Chucky Conservative"), and what motivated me to get my political-polar-opposite dad a copy, is that Cranky makes fun of just about everyone here. All parties and individuals are fair game. Even Santa Claus is presented in a new and potentially shocking light.
This is a really fun read for anyone interested in politics, the current Presidential race, and the art of satirical writing.
