Depending which direction your political freedom flag flies, this book will fall somewhere between a left handed knee slapper to down right hilarious. A good ol’ fashion amusement park of ironic American humor than pokes fun at our stumbling shortcomings to our ultimate potential as a country. The graves we dug ourselves and the reason they became so deep so fast. Colbert’s success lies in his ability to mock our apparent flaws while sarcastically pushing them under the rug, and reassuring the limitless possibilities we have to offer. The book takes on healthcare, Wall Street, energy, and, of course, elections. America Again $15.98
“Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we’re the #1 nation at being the best at greatness.
But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken! And we can’t exchange it because we’re 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around–we don’t make anything anymore, we’ve mortgaged our future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders. Worse, the L.A. Four Seasons Hotel doesn’t even have a dedicated phone button for the Spa. You have to dial an extension! Where did we lose our way?!
It’s high time we restored America to the greatness it never lost!”
