With the election of 2008 behind us, it can be sobering to reflect on the ability of voters to make informed choices. In this book, Shenkman points out just how stupid Americans can be about political issues—and geography—in spite of the power they have at the polls. With aplomb and composure, narrator Eric Michael Summerer presents all the cogent points, such as the average voter's lack of knowledge and the dumbing down of the political system. Another reader might have turned this into a ranting screed, but Summerer maintains an even keel throughout, helping listeners to understand just how much American voters need to learn in order to better exercise their right to vote.
