Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While the United States is involved in serious negotiations with Eastern European countries, the Washington Press Corps discover what they believe to be a true conspiracy raging right under their noses—one involving the First Dog. A talented full cast—including Richard Kind, Jane Lanier, Joe Liss, and Alan Wilder—brings to life journalist/former presidential aide Blumenthal's amusing parody of the media and politics, though it is sometimes difficult to distinguish among the many characters, and the recurrent news announcements, while often amusing, occasionally underwhelm. That said, this audio's production quality and entertainment value are first-rate. Recommended for fans of political satires and those liking audio dramas and full-cast performances.—Lance Eaton, Peabody, MA
