    Worth the Risk

    Bushworld is a place every voter should enter. Dowd provides an insight into the world the Bushes occupy that is funny, sad but mostly scary. The contrast between 41 and 43 is so great the reader is left wondering if they can ever connect. This story will leave you laughing or possibly crying for the world....ours.

    Brilliant, funny, vital, and ahead of the curve

    If you remember that Ms. Dowd won the Pulitzer Prize for skewering Bill Clinton (at least in part) in a series of hilarious and biting columns, and that she writes equally satiric pieces on Sen. Kerry (among other politicos) - then you might appreciate what a public service she performs as a journalist by holding those is power and the pretenders to the throne to account. This collection of columns lays bare the many fault lines of the Bush administration, but just as much demonstrates that Dowd is not cowed like an increasing number of journalists who are flat out afraid of losing their jobs, afraid of Bush, or are themselves too partisan to pretend to be fair. Unlike other so-called pundits or opinion-makers, Dowd is very funny and insightful...and a vital voice in national politics. Read Bushworld - even if you don't buy it...

    A nice heaping of reality

    Maureen Dowd has the courage, intelligence and wit to take on the worst administration in our country's history, and their supporters (see above reviews.) Her words are a great act of patriotism.

    We need more books like this. We need to expose both sides of the political war. Some talk about how Democrats are too liberal; well republicans are too conservative. We need to have our country's government placed in the hands of someone who's a solid combination of both. If we are too liberal things will become caotic. If we are too conservative we will never evolve into a more productive and respected country. I just wanted to say this in response to the earlier remarks on this book. We need to drop these bigoted views of the right and left sides of the government and learn to find a happy medium. Republicans aren't all right. But liberals aren't either. Neither way is the best, and I think you need to open your minds to that.
