This isn't the only way to read this book, but it's the best way. Franken's impressions of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and (my favorite) Al Gore are side-splittingly funny. Included in his arguments are audio clips from the newsmakers taken from news broadcasts and speeches, further reinforcing his "truth." Only Al Franken could read this material with his trademark sneer and laugh, elevating the experience beyond political satire. His letter to his fictional grandchildren, Hillary, Barrack, and Joe, is delivered with sincerity and hope for people looking for a brighter future of universal health care, strong public schools, and the downfall of the theocratic far-right wing.
