Glenn Beck’s long time
jester friend and Czar-at-Large, Brian Sack, has written a new book that will be out August 2, 2011 entitled The B.S. of A.: A Primer in Politics for the Incredibly Disenchanted. This is Sack’s second book, the previous of which was In the Event of My Untimely Demise: Twenty Things My Son Needs to Know.
From Brian Sack, contributor to Glenn Beck’s #1 New York Times bestseller Arguing with Idiots comes the hilarious, no-holds-barred, delightfully non-partisan guide to American politics.
Most of us were too smart to enter politics yet suffer daily at the hands of those who did. Luckily for us, Brian Sack’s second book puts his acerbic wit to good use with an objective look at today’s political realities—from the document that founded this republic (shorter than the assembly instructions for an Ikea bookshelf) to the current crop of political nincompoops and ne’er-do-wells who say, do, and legislate things that leave us in a constant state of head-scratching misery.
There’s a lot for the disenfranchised, frustrated and apolitical citizen to learn. Fortunately, The B.S. of A . offers an entertaining education in everything from the Electoral College—which no one minds until it costs them an election, to the First Amendment—which everyone loves until it protects something they’re not fond of.
Readers will enjoy heartwarming stories of proud moral crusaders caught with their pants ankle-high. They’ll understand how to name a bill the exact opposite of what the bill actually does. They’ll wonder why their paychecks still reflect the temporary withholding tax of 1945. And they’ll understand why our two-party system often leaves you pining for a four or five-party one.
If the country’s going to hell in a hand basket, you’ll want to bring The B.S. of A . along for the ride. (Amazon.com)
