9781451616712: The B.S. of A.: A Primer in Politics for the Incredibly Disenchanted

WE’RE KNEE DEEP— ARE YOU SHOVEL READY?

Politicians who say anything and do nothing . . . People lamenting Constitutional rights they don’t have . . . Protesters equating everyone to Hitler . . . Teeth-gritting partisans! Tax-evading congressmen! Fact-evading Americans! If you’re incredibly disenchanted, if you feel that this great country of ours is suffering from chronic bullsh*t at the federal, state, and local levels, good news: Not only are you in good company, but here’s a book to make you feel a little bit better—

THE B. S. OF A.!

Whether you voted for “hope” in 2008, or “change” in 2010, odds are you’re feeling a tad despondent. Here at last is a straight-talking, partisan-busting look at politics from humorist Brian Sack, who mercilessly pokes fun at The B.S. of A. with a double helping of objectivity and wit, pulling no punches and giving partisans, politicians, and their politics a well-deserved shellacking.

The B.S. of A. takes full advantage of our poorly understood First Amendment to fearlessly cut through the bull on both sides of the aisle and ask serious questions: Why does this enormous country have only two real parties? How does a bad idea become a terrible law with a misleading name? How can you identify the Seven Habits of Highly Partisan People? What’s the deal with this Constitution thing people keep citing? Can we stop comparing people we don’t like to Hitler?

You’ll find a handy glossary to thoroughly expand your political vocabulary. And, perhaps most important, you’re guaranteed to finish this book with a complete understanding of how to solve America’s biggest issues—including gun control and abortion!*

The B.S. of A.: You’re in it, so get to know it.

*Actually, these issues can’t be solved. Their complexity was misunderestimated.

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.
