I picked it up at a Books-a-Million today at a fantastic 30% discount and started reading it. I got through chapter 6 and stopped for the day. I will try to finish this weekend.
I never knew the American political system was this entertaining. The Forward by Thomas Jefferson was one of the funniest thing I ever read, and I haven't read much since I don't like reading books, so I don't know how much weight that carries. The diagrams contained throughout the book are hilarious and the wit and humor of the text is brilliant. It is like those high school textbooks, full with end of chapter questions, which are great. It even has the "This Book Is The Property Of:" stamp on the inside of the cover. I highly recommend it. Pick up a copy and enjoy the reading fun.

I got this one real cheap as well, I love it. All the weird little lists and everything are great. Comparing a democracy to a dictatorship to a cyborg controlled future are excellent.

Yes, and in a hundred years or so this will be looked back as a "great political satire" or, god help us, they'll take it for a real history book.

I read more than half of it today, and I really enjoy it. Samantha Bee's columns are insightful -- if only there were more of them. Sorry.
