A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE Humor, Blunders, and Other Oddities from the Presidential Campaign Trail

by | Read by Norman Dietz

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Sorry the election season's over? Charles Osgood gathers the funniest and weirdest moments of post-WWII presidential politics, starting with Harry S. Truman, whom he calls the first sound-bite candidate, and wrapping up with the Bush-Kerry battle of 2004. In between, he takes on high-profile regional races. Norman Dietz reads this collection of quips and flubs with a voice not unlike the ones listeners might have heard on the stump over the years. Listeners who follow politics will find many of the funny lines familiar. Osgood did his research well, but mostly he lets the anecdotes stand on their own, making the book more nostalgia for those who've lived through the campaigns than history or analysis.
