About the Author
Dave Barry was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for being, as The New York Times said, "the funniest man in America." His home paper is the Miami Herald; his syndicate services hundreds of other newspapers. (This book is all original, not a collection of columns.) He lives, by no coincidence, in Florida.

The more you know about politics, the funnier this stuff gets. Barry is a highly intelligent commentator on politics and on the sometimes insane world of campaigning and lawmaking. His new-and-improved version of the Constitution is roll-on-the-floor laughing material.
Barry also discusses the 2000 presidential candidates, making light of their shortcomings, but also getting serious: he met both of them, and says that Gore was much more personable than he seemed on TV, and Bush much more intelligent. He's on to an important point here: the way candidates appear on TV, or the ways they are sterotyped by the media, doesn't necessarily have anything to do with who they are in real life.
A must-have for anyone who likes politics, and actually has a sense of humor.
I was surprised that the last line of this book wasn't "I'm not making this up".
Enjoy the book; it's one of the best since P. J. O'Rourke's "Parliament of Whores".
than in a gulp like a novel. Dave has't lost his voice and for fans, that't good news!
