bookshelves: humor, politics, all-time-favorites

P.J. O'Rourke attempts to explain "The Mystery of Government" (chapter 1), including: "The Dictatorship of Boredom"-The Bandwagon, The Midget Vote-Suckers, The Winners (go to D.C.)

"The Three Branches of Government"-Busybodies (congress), Ony Human (the president), Doing...Nothing (the supreme court), Protectors (bureaucracy), Would you kill your mother to pave I-95? (the budget)

"Our Governemnt, What the "F" Does it do All Day, And Why Does it Cost so G-D'd Much Money?"

"Special Interest Groups: the Original Barrel of Monkeys That Nothing is More Fun Than"

Outrageously barbed and humorous jibes at the government's and at its citizen's (i.e. Our Own) expense.
