George versus Bill,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Better Than Sex: Confessions of a Political Junkie, Trapped Like a Rat in Mr.Bill's Neighbourhood (Paperback)
One of the good Doctor's finest,the race for the White house between George Bush and Bill (I didn't inhale) Clinton
I found this book very funny,The Doctor is backing Mr Clinton,but when he interviews him in Arkansas he get's a frosty reception.It turns out Thompson is a dead ringer of a bully from a white trash family whom Clinton hated.
Thompson also hates to admit this,but he says that at least George Bush has a sense of humour
There are many frantic letters written by Thompson and many are sent to the Editor of Rolling Stone Magazine where he is trying to get the Rock'n'roll vote in favour of cigar chompin' Bill
"Fear and loathing on the campaign trail '72" was lost on me because I didn't know many of the politicians,but all the good ol' Republicans are here including Mr Baker
Yes,one of the Doctor's finest political books with many a laugh !
