This was a great book that had me laughing right out loud in certain places--
"The Respublicans and their etch-a-sketch president with a voice like a dial tone who for years has looked as if he were just about to say someting smart"

and in other places was inspired--
"What unites us is our moral duty to bequeath our great country to our grandchildren in better shape than we found it. We have a long way to go and we're not getting any younger."

Keillor's powerful prose speaks of pride, Americans, and the problems facing us all. It was a quick read, but it packs a wallop.

"The strategists draw the lines and issue orders and have lunch in the officer's mess under the chandeliers and the soldiers move into the rain and die in the dark."
