Great breakdown of what happens when political idealism meets reality, in this case when the Tea Party freshman congressman actually had to start governing. This book gives a good overview of how Congress works (or doesn't, for the most part) and includes several colorful details of the dealmaking process. I do feel more enlightened about how the House works, but it's hard not to be pessimistic about the future of this country if these are our leaders. Probably the book's biggest achievement: John Boehner comes across as a pretty cool guy.
