I’ve been a fan of Joe Scarborough since he moved to the mornings on MSNBC.

I expected this book to be better than it was. It was useful in that it gave an explanation in layman's terms about what happened and the major players in each battle he faced in Congress. I wouldn't really recommend it unless you are extremely interested in Republican congressional politics.

Joe S. is great and this book is just a quick, clear snapshot of why Washington DC is

I hope the choir starts voting congress out quickly.
