Series of political-themed essays from Sarah Vowell, some of which had me cackling out loud. It's from 2002, so the 2000 Presidential election fiasco was still very much on her mind, and the part where she laments Gore's branding as a "nerdy bore" and wishes he'd embraced his nerdiness in a self-deprecating way so as to become likable, such as the way characters in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" do, is inspired.
