It's been a good long while since I read a Tom Tomorrow book (or one of his strips). I'm glad to see his work and impression of the American political landscape is even better than ever. This book covers about the first two years of Obama's presidency. It not only perfectly lampoons Obama (he has two characters, the real Obama and the ghost like "idea of Obama"), but points out/makes fun of/chronicles/despairs at the rise of what can only be described as "crazy" within our political/public cultu ...more

I've been a huge Tom Tomorrow fan since the late 1990s, but his more recent collections somehow seemed less trenchant to me than his earlier work. With this latest collection, he is back in top form. Perhaps he was invigorated by the opportunity to take shots at someone other than George W. Bush. His criticisms of Obama - and of the people who naively believed Obama was an actual liberal (due to their "imaginary conversations" with him) - are dead on. Obviously not a book for everyone, but peopl ...more

Very fun political cartoons by Tom Tomorrow. Left leaning to say the least, and great lampooning of right wing political culture.

If you are a liberal in the USA, you will most likely like this. If you are a conservative, you will most likely hate it, except for the satirical biting of Obama. Does a great job of taking apart the fears that the Foxers had in mind for the American public at the beginning of Obama's first presidency.

I read this cartoon often. It comforts me to know that I am not the only crazy left-wing socialist out there.
