About the Author

Jason Johnson has spent the last six years hiding in a shelter, sniping at George W. Bush from his political columns in the Duluth, MN-based alternative newspaper, Reader Weekly, as well as in his previous book, I Hate Bush and So Do You (2003). Despite years of witnessing the erosion of civil liberties, the weakening of environmental and worker protections, and the use of ineffective and incompetent anti-terrorism strategies, Johnson maintains his sense of humor and writes the area's most popular news-spoof column, The Skinny.

Format: Paperback
This book is the follow-up to Johnson's "I Hate Bush and So Do You," and is basically more of the same, though perhaps without quite as many typos. The book contains four sections, and because they vary in quality, I find it necessary to review them individually:

One ("Parte Uno," Johnson calls it): Interestingly, even though the subtitle is "Reflections on the House of Bush," only this section deals largely with our invalid president, and many of the essays aren't even political. I don't know if many essays deliver the laugh-out-loud moments of his previous book, but I did laugh, and Johnson seems more focused overall. He's not as funny as, say, Al Franken (the writer Johnson claims to want to emmulate), and he's not as informative as Joe Conason, but for making jokes as Bush's expense, it's above average. Four stars.

Two ("Parte Dos"): These articles were written for a local magazine in Duluth, and consequently, the references are a bit more obscure. I don't know if one needs to know the characters and settings involved--I still laughed a few times--but overall I found the humor in this section a bit more forced. Two stars.

Three ("Parte Tres"): A mixture of One and Two, basically, with predictably mixed results. Some funny, some not. Three stars.

Four is the best of the "Skinny," which is about 50 pages or so of one-liners and gags that read like a David Letterman monologue or the Weekend Update portion of Saturday Night Live. Not everything's laugh-out-loud material, but I did enjoy this section a lot. My personal favorite: "Dick Cheney celebrated the 4th of July by shooting a bottle rocket into his hunting friend's face." Five stars.

OK, my star ratings don't round out to four, but I'll give it four anyway, largely cuz of that Cheney line.
