Humor • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Former NATIONAL LAMPOON contributor P.J. O’Rourke likes his conservative politics spiked with libertarian values, and the satiric tone of his writing lets the listener know that, like Stephen Colbert, his right-wing beliefs are laced with irony. Running the gamut of social issues, from the bailout to global warming, O’Rourke ultimately sees humor in tragedy—a reason his barbed and occasionally foul-mouthed diatribes ultimately hold up better than those of others on both sides of the debate. Christopher Lane is an interesting choice as narrator—dignified and professorial, as opposed to the wild man one envisions O’Rourke to be. In the end, Lane’s gently chiding tone adds a kind of validity to the proceedings, so the message doesn’t get lost in O’Rourke’s sometimes-obscure rhetoric.
