Synopsis: In 1988, P.J. O'Rourke moved to Washington to examine the US government and to look at what politicians do and why it costs so much. The author argues that governments make everything complicated, obscure and tedious to confuse members of the general public in what he describes as a "dictatorship of boredom". In this book he examines and explains many of the aspects of the workings of the American government. P.J. O'Rourke is the author of "Modern Manners", "The Bachelor Home Companion", "Republican Party Reptile" and "Holidays in Hell".
Product Description: P.J. O'Rourke does it again. You hate yourself for laughing, but so much of it is true.
