Andy Borowitz, “one of many funniest individuals in America” (CBS Sunday Morning), brilliantly examines the mental deterioration of American politics, from Ronald Reagan to Dan Quayle, from George W. Bush to Sarah Palin, to its apotheosis in Donald J. Trump.The winner of the first-ever Nationwide Press Membership award for humor, Andy Borowitz has been referred to as a “Swiftian satirist” (The Wall Road Journal) and “one of many nation’s most interesting satirists” (The New York Instances). Hundreds of thousands of followers and New Yorker readers get pleasure from his satirical information column “The Borowitz Report”. Now, in Profiles in Ignorance, he provides a witty, spot-on prognosis of our nation’s political troubles by displaying how ignorant leaders are degrading, embarrassing, and endangering our nation.Borowitz argues that over the previous 50 years, American politicians have grown more and more allergic to data, and mass media have inspired the election of ignoramuses by elevating candidates who’re higher at performing than pondering. Beginning with Ronald Reagan’s first marketing campaign for governor of California in 1966 and culminating with the election of Donald J. Trump to the White Home, Borowitz reveals how, in the course of the age of 24-hour information and social media, the US has elected politicians to positions of nice energy whose lack of probably the most primary data is terrifying. Along with Reagan, Quayle, Bush, Palin, and Trump, Borowitz covers a number of congresspersons, senators, and governors who’ve helped decrease the bar over the previous 5 a long time.Profiles in Ignorance goals to make us each giggle and cry: giggle on the idiotic antics of those public figures, and cry on the cataclysms these icons of ignorance have induced. However most significantly, the guide delivers a name to motion and a trigger for optimism: Historical past doesn’t transfer in a straight line, and we will change course if we act now.PLEASE NOTE: Whenever you buy this title, the accompanying PDF will likely be out there in your Audible Library together with the audio.
