The George W. Bush Quiz Book
A hilarious “quizography” on the dumbfounding life of George W. Bush
George W. Bush is:
the greatest American statesman since Abraham Lincoln.
a champion of the underdog and a thorn in the side of the wealthy.
articulate, thoughtful, and judicious—a very, very wise man.
linguistically challenged (“I know how hard it is to put food on your family”), proudly ignorant (he actually boasts about not reading newspapers), and inexplicably addicted to nicknaming (aide Karl Rove is “Turd Blossom”)—in short, the least qualified, most polarizing figure ever to be appointed President of the United States, and the only White House occupant to have once been videotaped picking his nose.
If you answered d, this book is for you. In The George W. Bush Quiz Book, New Yorker humorist and bestselling author of The Clothes Have No Emperor, Paul Slansky, brings you a comical compendium of quizzes filled with hundreds of questions and answers on the personal and political life of George W. The result is a crash course in everything Dubya.
Thoroughly researched and devastatingly funny, now there’s finally a quiz George W. Bush should be able to ace (pass).
The Little Quiz Book of Big Political Sex Scandals
Politics and sex. Nothing captures the attention of the media -- and satisfies the public's thirst for schadenfreude -- quite like our elected officials getting caught with their pants down. In The Little Quiz Book of Big Political Sex Scandals, renowned satirist and New York Times bestselling author Paul Slansky provides a guided tour of this torrid realm of public life. Through a comprehensive compendium of quizzes, incorporating his trademark Q&A format, Slansky chronicles the political sex-scapades of the past half century -- Bill's cigar and Monica's stained dress, Gary Hart's cruise on the good ship Monkey Business, Larry Craig's restroom romancing, and scores of other career-ending shenanigans.
Devastatingly funny yet also meticulously researched and historically relevant, this irreplaceable guide to the headline-grabbing events, the reluctant apologies, and the inevitable consequences -- and, of course, the anguished spouses standing by their men -- offers an endlessly entertaining peek under the covers of our political establishment.
Idiots, Hypocrites, Demagogues, and More Idiots: Not-So-Great Moments in Modern American Politics
There's nothing more enjoyable than when political bigwigs stick their feet in their mouth. Whether discussing foreign policy, the choice of vice-presidential running mate, the State of the Union, or the state of their marriage, the chances to screw up political careers are seemingly endless. In Idiots, Hypocrites, Demagogues, and more Idiots, humorist Paul Slansky gathers together some of the most outrageous, hypocritical, self-serving, demagogic, criminal, offensive, surreal, and just plain idiotic moments in American politics over the last fifty years. With deliciously subversive sections entitled "Inaccurate Prognostications," "Delicious Wallows In Schadenfreude," "Bizarre Blurts," and "Freudian Slips," this book brings together the worst mistakes America's politicians, policy-makers, and wonk-heads ever had the audacity to commit-sometimes two or three times.
