Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My fellow Americans,

I wrote a book about politics sucking. Little did I know that the book would come out literally minutes after the debt ceiling debacle which made Americans from across the political spectrum realize that politics and politicians suck. Bad.

Now everyone is miserable. It's perfect timing for this book, really. Great job Congress!

From the Back Cover

"Brian Sack's deft skewering of our nation's nonsense will have them rolling in--and on both sides of--the aisles."
Chris Regan - Emmy award winning writer, The Daily Show w/ Jon Stewart, author Mass Historia: 365 Days of Historical Facts and (Mostly) Fictions.

"I thought Brian Sack only picked on me, so it's nice to see he also has issues with Democrats, Republicans, and partisan hacks."
Glenn Beck - NYT bestselling author and political lightning rod.

"The funniest book about politics that I've ever read. And I love the group nudie shots of the entire 112th Congress!"
Mike Sacks, author of And Here's the Kicker; SEX: Our Bodies, Our Junk and Your Wildest Dreams, Within Reason.

Brian made me think about partisanship, I like to think I'am an open minded independent, but there are times that I get defencive over my beliefs. I do not yell, of raise my voice, but I can feel my blood pressure go up. I wish a friend of mine could say the same. I hope she reads this book, through humor she might see the folly of arguing with everyone who doesn't see it her way, like Brian says, you have to walk on egg shells around this person. One thing I wish the kindle version would have had voice enabled.

Brian Sack has a warped sense of humour, which I like. This book holds no punches with either political party, and is right on the mark. I hope Brian Sack keeps writing, as I enjoy his books alot!

This book was very interesting! Not only did it include satire regarding the state of politics, but it also inserted factual information about the Consititution and what it means. I found the book to be entertaining and enlightening. I was glad to read the author's open-minded retorts to political situations and I felt that he showed no preference to either side of the political arena.

In a sea of partisan books that serve only to reinforce already-held beliefs, this one steps outside of things to talk about the phenomenon and workings of our government - a real boon to folks seeking some understanding of the bizarro world that is U.S. politics. I really feel for those who are embarking on their political journey but must travel, book by book, down many biased alleys, only to discover, hey, this isn't the way, and what a phoney this one turned out to be. This book might help you see the big picture and how we align our values with the political machinery. It also might prevent many from investing too much psychic energy into that class of (generally speaking) sub-humans we call politicians. And it's all wrapped in humor and realism, which really makes the subject matter go down easy.

BTW, Brian Sack is a funny guy. You can catch him on GBTV.com. His squirting flower is a riot.

Informative, entertaining and humorous look at the BULL pervading both sides of the aisle. Reading it again and buying copies for friends, particularly, the heavy partisans among my friends.

This was a fun read. It helped me to understand some government jargon. It made a subject that could be boring very funny.
