Thank you NPR (820AM WNYC) for putting me on to this book:
From Barnes and Noble Web site:
"Shelley Lewis figured out a way to make me laugh out loud at adultery, corruption, bribery, prevarication, hypocrisy, pumpkin shooting, race baiting, insanity, cat murder, and filthy, groping old men. Naked Republicans is an instruction manual for the things you can get away with and still keep your job in Washington, D.C."--Rachel Maddow, Air America Radio
Naked Republicans is the exposé you've been waiting for. From Cheney to Condi, from DeLay to the Dukester, from Newt to Rummy, these are the weasels, wackos, and wingnuts who turned the party of Lincoln into a five-kegger blowout.
For the first time, in one hilarious roundup, Shelley Lewis reveals the naked truth about the fiscal conservatives who spend money like they print it themselves (oh, right-they do); the pious pols who regard the institution of marriage so highly they've moved on to their second and third wives; and the deceitful dissemblers who've earned a place in the Hall of Shame.
In these troubled times, when you don't know whether to laugh or cry, Naked Republicans puts the hip back in hypocrisy and restores the fun to fundamentalism! "If you crave a hilarious exposé of the weasels who need to be sent home from Washington, you need to buy this book!"--Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher, The Nation BACK
