Overview

The 267 Stupidest Things Republicans/Democrats Said: Flip-Book by Ted Rueter

A hilarious bipartisan collection of rants, malapropisms, doublespeak, and just plain idiocy from lifelong politicians and Washington wannabes.

Whether it's a Republican mayor on crime — "The streets are safe in Philadelphia. It's only the people who make them unsafe (Frank Rizzo) — or his Democratic counterpart on the same subject — "Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country" (Marion Barry) — political discourse is often off-course, not to mention unintentionally hilarious.

Wickedly funny when read from either direction, this book presents both Republican stupidity ("Approximately 80 percent of our air pollution stems from vegetation"— Ronald Reagan) and matching head-slappers from Democrats ("For those who died [in the San Francisco earthquake], their lives will never be the same again" — Barbara Boxer).

The 267 Stupidest Things . . is the perfect antidote to election-year bombast.
