Read full description of the books:
I honestly couldn't get through this piece. About halfway through, I got fed up with the amount of pet names Dowd was using for her political players. Overall, the tone of this book comes off like a Yahoo! news comment thread; it's way too abrasive in advance of any facts to win moderates or cynics over, thus making it something of a masturbatory piece for people already on Dowd's wavelength. There was plenty about the Bush administration to give any journalist room for extensive and outrageous narrative, without resorting to cutesy names for people and creating insulting hypothetical scenarios that occurred behind closed doors. I understand if a humorous edge is needed when discussing all the frank upheavals of democracy that occurred under Bush's terms, but there were certainly better satirical approaches out there than just going for below the belt. Read any comic strip by Tom Tomorrow if you want what Maureen Dowd is attempting here; you'll get decent humor mixed with actual facts (making it a "cry 'til you laugh" sort of situation).
