Description
This edition of the Snark Handbook offers a simple experiment: Pony up to any bar in America, order a beer, and ask the guy or gal next to you about politics or the government. Almost without fail, you'll hear griping and groaning like: "We have a two-party system; one party wins the election and the other tells us about the mistake we've made for the next four years" (Tommy Koenig), or, "The President needs a break. He's like a Black & Decker vacuum. If you don't give him time to recharge, he can't suck" (Stephen Colbert). Why? Because snark and politics have been bedfellows since the days of Plato: "Those that are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber." After decades of experience in publishing, at houses like Simon and Schuster, Penguin, and Harry N. Abrams, Lawrence Dorfman has learned a thing or two about the snide remark, or snark, made respectable (if not any kinder) by wits from Dorothy Parker to Mark Twain. His popular Snark Handbook series collects the most effective and memorable examples of snarky wit on a given subject—with a thought or two of his own—in compact editions with old-fashioned covers and illustrations.
