Why are Americans so disinterested in politics? Because we can be. Democracy is voluntary. And our lack of interest hasn't happened overnight. It can be traced directly back to our ever-decreasing attention spans. We need anything politically important rationed out like Pez-small, sweet, and coming out of a funny plastic head.

Overview

Why are Americans so disinterested in politics? Because we can be. Democracy is voluntary. And our lack of interest hasn't happened overnight. It can be traced directly back to our ever-decreasing attention spans. We need anything politically important rationed out like Pez-small, sweet, and coming out of a funny plastic head.

Why has flying in this country, especially boarding the plane, turned into this tedious Bataan death march with American Tourister overnight bags? And when did flight attendants get so cranky?

Who do we find ourselves locked in this pointless pas de doo-doo over something called "arts funding?" The federal tab involved here is a lousy 500 million dollars. One-fifth the national budget! Less than the money spent on 1-900 calls from Air Force One.

Mothers, immigration, marriage, parenthood, sports, political correctness, and our general attitudes toward each other-all are equally worthy of Dennis Miller's close inspection and ridicule. What's really going on in this country? Ask Dennis Miller. Or don't ask. He'll tell you anyway. Not that he really wants to go off on another rant. Remember, it's only his opinion, he could be wrong.

From the Compact Disc edition.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Miller, host of HBO's Dennis Miller Live, has twice before "ranted" on audio (The Rants and Ranting Again, both BDD). In the 14 mini-diatribes contained here, Miller explodes into his trademark outbursts as he takes on a series of loaded topics from contemporary life--women's rights, abortion, parenting, immigration. What is Miller's vision of America? As he puts it: "The tornado-beset trailer park that is our everyday existence." Yes, his humor is profane, mean-minded and chauvinistic (as when her refers to wives as "shoe jockeys"). He prides himself in the reverse-chic of his reactionary and xenophobic views. Yet he gains some grace by being equally hard on himself, describing his life as a self-loathing everyman trapped in an evil, consumerist society. For those who prefer to enjoy audio in their cars, Miller's screeds are perfect for inciting docile listeners to road rage. (June) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
