Overview

The Final President by D. Elliot Pike

The Final President is a political satire set in the not-too-distant future.

U.S. President Boyd Lamm, burdened with numerous unresolved national issues, and opposed by a former backer who owns the Atlantic Ocean, seeks to set America on the road to progress via the most ambitious public works project in human history – the Trans-National Canal (TNC), the project that will unite America – by cutting it in two!


The TNC succeeds in inspiring, but its disastrous execution (much of Los Angeles is destroyed) at the hands of his ne'er-do-well son and a uniquely bizarre EPA-head (founder of the Organization for the Prevention of Cruelty to Inanimate Objects), forces the president to pursue an unimaginable means to achieve the desired end: the United States will transition from a democracy, back to a monarchy.

Lamm's secret role model is England's King Edward I, the infamous and ruthless 13th century leader, who bore the nickname, the Hammer of the Scots.

King Boyd I, America's final president, aided by Count Bzdak, a Belgian royal and long-time friend, leads the nation on a still-more egregious path (including public executions broadcast by Fox News) that displays all the worst characteristics of centralized power.

Peppered with outrageous events, at all stages, including the televised burning of the Constitution; construction of the White House moat; the permanent freezing of Chesapeake Bay, and the remarkable ascendance of Malibu Greenberg, the world's worst stand-up comedian, The Final President concludes with an unexpected and hilarious transition of power.

About the Author

I am a published, syndicated, 23-year member of the National Cartoonists Society, currently living in Scottsdale, Arizona with my wife and Charles, a very loud but lovable rescue dog. Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, McGraw-Hill, John Wiley & Sons, The Wine Advocate (online) and many others have used my work. Prior books published include: Gone with the Wine; The Grapes of Laugh; Less Than a Full Deck; Pukka & Fremd , and Splattered on the Road to Wealth. Seemingly a million years ago, I attended Rutgers University and The University of Chicago, where I studied finance, accounting and marketing. How all that led to cartooning and writing, I’ll never know.
