Overview

The same week William Jefferson Clinton was sworn in as head of our national family, I became a father.

And so begins one columnist's journey through the Clinton presidency. For humorist and political commentator Michael Graham, the trip is a hilarious tour de farce of America at its most ridiculous, and its most real. In the tradition of H. L. Menken (after whom his son is named) and P. J. O'Rourke, Michael Graham lets fly his lampoons on deserving targets across the American landscape. From Al Gore on the left ("the ideology of Ralph Nader, the ethics of Richard Nixon") to Strom Thurmond on the right (campaign slogan: "Getting Out of Bed for More Than 94% of a Century!"), Graham casts his merrily cynical eye and sees all.

Graham begins this collection of contemporary humor with an overview of the Clinton years and how they have changed him as a citizen, a father, and a writer ("What other president could turn the phrase 'face time' into an instant punchline?") He proceeds to take us on a joyous ride through the peaks and valleys of the pants-free presidency.

    BN had better list this!

    Graham's a great writer: Savvy and funny. If you like sharp political commentary with your belly laughs, you can't beat him. He'll make you laugh till you cry -- and even cry till you laugh. Even people who aren't political junkies (but who isn't after this election?) will enjoy this book.
