Dave Barry Hits Below the Beltway: A Vicious and Unprovoked Attack on Our M ost Cherished Political Institutions, Barry, Dave
1 Barry, Dave Dave Barry Hits Below the Beltway: A Vicious and Unprovoked Attack on Our M ost Cherished Political Institutions
Random House Publishing Grou 2003 0345459199 / 9780345459190 Paperback Very Good 
Just in time, Dave Barry supplies the wholly original, much needed history and guide to the new American politics and its three capitals, Washington, D.C., Austin, and South Florida. No surprise: it's hilarious. Understanding the urgent need for a deeply thoughtful balanced book to expl ain our national political process, Dave Barry has not even come close. Tho ugh he himself has covered many campaigns, run for President several times, and run for cover at the rainy inauguration of George W. Bush (the man wil l spare nothing for his art) Barry has instead outdone himself. Below the Beltway includes Barry's stirring account of how the United State s was born, including his version of a properly rewritten Declaration (When in the course of human events it behooves us, the people, not to ask "What can our country do for us, anyway?" but rather whether we have anything to fear except fear itself...) and a revised Constitution (Section II: The Ho use of Representatives shall be composed of people who own at least two dar k suits and have not been indicted recently.). Dave also cracks the income tax code, explains the growth(s) of government, congressional hearing difficulties, and the persistent rumors of the influ ence of capital in the Capitol. Among other civic contributions, his tour o f Washington, D.C., should end school class trips forever. From the Trade Paperback edition.

2 Barry, Dave Dave Barry is from Mars and Venus
Crown 1997 0609600664 / 9780609600665 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
Dave Barry reveals the shocking secrets of his biplanetary identity in a tr ansparent attempt to get on some afternoon talk shows and sell a few extra copies of this latest collection of his funniest syndicated columns. Maybe you read a really funny Dave Barry column and really, really meant to save it, but we all know how that goes: out with the rest of the recyclabl es. Or maybe you didn't get around to reading the newspaper one day and won dered if you missed the most hilarious Dave Barry column of all time. Well, that's why some smart marketing person invented "best of" collections, and that's why you need Dave Barry Is from Mars and Venus. It's got Dave's coverage of the Olympics, featuring an account of his parti cipation with the U.S. synchronized swim team: "Picture a bunch of elegant swans swimming with a flailing sea cow". Also on hand are Dave's unfortunat e appearance on Wheel of Fortune, his (non)lunch with Hillary Rodham Clinto n, what happened when he shot a Gymnast Barbie doll out of a potato gun, th e last word on turkey rectums, and much, much more from a guy who knows whe re he's coming from. Dave Barry is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and the best-selling autho r of Dave Barry in Cyberspace (Crown, 1996), Dave Barry's Guide to Guys, Da ve Barry Turns 40 (Crown, 1990), and other books. He lives in Miami, Florid a. First, a few words about the title. It isn't easy, coming up with book titles. A lot of the really good ones ar e taken. Thin Thighs in 30 Days, for example. Also The Bible. Another restriction was that the publisher wanted a title with my name in it. Over the years, most of my book titles have

Don't Let the Turkeys Get You Down, Boynton, Sandra
5 Boynton, Sandra Don't Let the Turkeys Get You Down
Workman Publishing Company 1986 0894800132 / 9780894800139 Paperback Very Good 
A read copy, but no markings throughout, spine unblemished, not an ex-lib e dition: Dedicated to Whom It May Concern, Don't Let the Turkeys Get You Down is San dra Boynton's hilarious commentary and 150 full-color drawings identifying the ubiquitous turkey's distinguishing characteristics and most common habi tats. Any similarity to actual persons living or in Los Angeles is strictly unintentional, including the stuff on page 54 that will remind many people of Snigbert Knuddsen. From the turkeys extremely large ego to its arrogant behavior, the traits a re classified. Boynton traces the turkey's influence on history, the neighb orhood, the family, more. Several profiles in turkitude and a pop quiz furt her uncover turkeys in the immediate vicinity. Forewarned is forearmed: turkeys possess absolutely unwarranted and absolutely unshakable self-confidence. They insist on high visibility, and can show up at a party, in an argument, on the jogging path. The reader's best defense is through study of this important manual, keying in on the single most important turkey fact: a turkey never knows that it is a turkey.

Tarcher 2000 1585420654 / 9781585420650 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good

Sharing firsthand observations on the influences of spiritual life on her work, Cameron asserts that, "for every step we take toward God, a thousand are taken toward us." Today, with the prevalent paradoxes and contradictions one often finds in the spiritual trek, God Is No Laughing Matter will give readers a respite and the energy to begin anew.

Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington, Cathcart, Thomas
9 Cathcart, Thomas Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington
Abrams Image 2008 0810995417 / 9780810995413 Hardcover Very Good 
Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein, authors of the national bestseller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar, aren't falling for any election year claptr ap-and they don't want their readers to either! In Aristotle and an Aardvar k Go to Washington, our two favorite philosopher-comedians return just in t ime to save us from the double-speak, flim-flam, and alternate reality of p olitics in America. Deploying jokes and cartoon as well as the occasional insight from Aristotl e and his peers, Cathcart and Klein explain what politicos are up to when t hey state: "The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence." (Donal d Rumsfeld), "It depends on what the meaning of the word ?is' is." (Bill Cl inton), or even, "We hold these truths to be self-evident..." (Thomas Jeffe rson, et al). Drawing from the pronouncements of everyone from Caesar to Condoleeza Rice, Genghis Kahn to Hillary Clinton, and Adolf Hitler to Al Sharpton. Cathcart and Klein help us learn to identify tricks such as "The Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy" (non causa pro causa) and the "The Fallacy Fallacy" (argumentum and logicam). Aristotle and an Aardvark is for anyone who ever felt like the politicos and pundits were speaking Greek. At least Cathcart and Klein provide the Latin name for it (raudatio publica)!

17 Davies, Robertson The Papers of Samuel Marchbanks
Penguin 1990 0140097716 / 9780140097719 Paperback Very Good 
From Library Journal In this collection of his newspaper pieces, mostly from the late Forties, Davies introduces us to his alter ego, a mildly irascible curmudgeon whose opinions and observations have been so popular in Canada that three volumes of his columns have been published there: The Diary , The Table Talk , and The Garland of Miscellania. Davies has re-edited them to produce a single volume and in the prefatory "A Drink with Marchbanks" even given us his own view of the journalist he created. A pleasant entertainment covering such diverse topics as politics, theater, and manners, this volume offers a humorous and insightful picture of postwar Canadian life as seen through the eyes of a delightful eccentric who reminds this reader of a boozeless W. C. Fields.

20 Dole, Robert Great Political Wit
Nan A. Talese 1998 0385493479 / 9780385493475 1st Edition Hardcover Fine/Fine 
A highly collectible first edition/printing, a tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscriptions or markings, not price clipped an ex-library or a book of the month club edition. Shortly after his defeat in the 1996 U.S. presidential election, Republican Bob Dole was invited to appear on David Letterman's Late Show. Letterman asked Dole about President Clinton's weight, but Dole wasn't taking the bait. "I never tried to lift him," he retorted. "I just tried to beat him." That was the first time many Americans got to see a side of Bob Dole rarely revealed to the public during his 36 years on Capitol Hill--the dry, wicked sense of humor that quickly became a defining characteristic of his postpolitical career.
