Overview

What's causing the country and now the President to lose their crackers and voters to elect Nitt Witts?

Clowns and Turkeys are running Congress and the Nitt Witts are everywhere. But will one more Clown in Congress make any difference? Would the country be better off with some real Turkeys instead of those Clowns? Or are the Nitt Witts destined to run Washington?

Set on historic Nitt Witt Ridge in Cambria, California and Capitol Hill in Washington D.C., Sebastian Gibson's satire paints the absurdities of the political world and of daily life with his unique sense of humor.

The top political parties have degenerated into the Nitt Witts, the Turkeys and the Clown Party and the country is becoming deranged. Unless Mark Twain (Mark, a political consultant and his dog, Twain) can determine what's making people so neurotic and make sense of the madness, riots may cause the country's collapse.

The Clowns are running for office with the slogan, "One more Clown in Congress probably won't make any difference." The Turkey candidates are running against the Clowns with their counter slogan, "Isn't it time we had some real Turkeys in office instead of those Clowns?" But it's the Nitt Witt Party who may have the most appeal to voters with their slogan, "Elect a Nitt Witt and see what some real Nitt Witts can do in Washington."

Meanwhile, believing a lightweight metal alloy in bras when placed in contact with the wearer's skin is causing electrostatic interference with aircraft navigation equipment and with people themselves, Homeland Security and the Senate take action to prohibit the wearing of bras on airplanes and their sale in America. Still, the situation fails to improve and the country is on the verge of losing its collective mind.

With the rhetoric of political parties at a level never seen before ("Turkeys are made for stuffing, Clowns are for Congress") and as protesters riot over the right to wear or go without bras and try to take control of the White House it's up to Mark and his dog Twain to determine the cause of the country's mental imbalance and find a way to save the country.

Read the novel that's making Washington laugh so hard, Congress can't accomplish anything. It all begins and ends on Nitt Witt Hill.

Meet the Author

Sebastian Gibson began his career as an artist, performer and writer when at the age of 16, he graduated early and joined the international cast of a musical show that traveled the world and appeared on national TV. It was on one occasion when the cast left without him while in Italy (they claimed it was an honest mistake) that he developed his wry sense of humor.

That sense of humor became even more pronounced after he obtained an undergraduate degree at UCLA (cum laude) and law degrees in California and Great Britain (magna cum laude) while attempting to pay for his education by performing in clubs and pubs as a musician without losing what little was left of his mind.

While working in London as an attorney, Sebastian Gibson wrote and recorded “Shake,” a musical based on the life of Shakespeare. When the musical was a complete disaster, Sebastian Gibson blamed it on the subject of the musical. “I knew there was a reason Shakespeare never became popular.”

After writing thousands of both serious and humorous articles on the internet, the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal newspapers asked Sebastian Gibson to write articles for their publications. After several were published, the newspapers realized he had no intention of submitting serious legal articles, and Sebastian Gibson began work on this book.

Today, Sebastian Gibson resides in Southern California where he has his own law firm and is at work on his next book. Sebastian handles legal cases throughout the state in areas including personal injury, business, entertainment and celebrity law, publishing, copyrights, trademarks and international law.

    No Political Party Safe

    Nitt Witt Hill by Sebas­t­ian Gib­son is a polit­i­cal satire which brings for­ward the absur­di­ties of today's pol­i­tics. Unfor­tu­nately we call these absur­di­ties "news".

    The book is told by Mark, a polit­i­cal con­sul­tant who goes by the name of Mark Twain - Twain being his beloved dog.

    The Exec­u­tive and Leg­isla­tive branches of our gov­ern­ment are los­ing their minds. New polit­i­cal par­ties form, the Nitt Witts (far righ -- , "Elect a Nitt Witt and see what some real Nitt Witts can do in Wash­ing­ton."), the Clowns ("Isn't it time we had some real Turkeys in office instead of those Clowns?"), the Turkeys and more.

    Our fear­less lead­ers have come to the con­clu­sion that the metal in bras is one of the causes of inter­fer­ence in air­craft nav­i­ga­tion and out­law bras on air­planes and their sale. Mark and Twain try to make sense of this sit­u­a­tion, but is there any sense to be made?

    Sebas­t­ian Gib­son sets the mood for Nitt Witt Hill right on the first page with a warn­ing from famed author, critic, and polit­i­cal satirist Mark Twain:

    "Per­sons attempt­ing to find a motive in this nar­ra­tive will be pros­e­cuted; per­sons attempt­ing to find a moral in it will be ban­ished; per­sons attempt­ing to find a plot in it will be shot".

    In Nitt Witt Hill (named after Nitt Witt Ridge in Cal­i­for­nia), Mr. Gib­son leaves no polit­i­cal wing safe, he high­lights the absur­dity, cor­rup­tion and idiocy of the polit­i­cal class (yes, class). While the sit­u­a­tions in this books are twisted, they are also, unfor­tu­nately, sadly accurate.

    I have long main­tained that the politi­cians first job, as they see it, is to get re-elected. In order to so they must use the divide-and-conquer strat­egy. The polit­i­cal class takes issues which are unim­por­tant yet divi­sive (abor­tion, gay mar­riage, etc.) and makes the elec­tions about those instead of the impor­tant, albeit bor­ing, issues (econ­omy, unem­ploy­ment, etc.).

    The sheeple swal­low this up as those issues were the Torah brought down from Mt. Sinai and the polit­i­cal class, who are busy fin­ger point­ing, pass­ing laws to enrich their friends and think "long term" means the next elec­tion have no con­se­quences to their actions (most of them get their jobs back).
