In 2008, Calvin Trillin courted election watchers with the witty political verse of Deciding the Decider. That collection earned bipartisan plaudits, but it is no match for Dog Fight, his poetic reprise of the 2012 presidential race. We're not questioning The Nation poet laureate's versifying ability in the earlier book; we're simply noting that for sheer surrealism; the 2012 campaign has been a nonstop festival of zingers, bloopers, and surprises. Trillin captures it all in humorous poems that will convince losers and winners that it was worth it after all.
