    Book Description:
    A recent survey found that two-thirds of Americans think George W. Bush is doing a great job running the country. "Yeah, well the other one-third read," says vigilante pundit Baratunde Thurston, who is offering that privileged third an opportunity to read his debut book: Better Than Crying: Poking Fun at Politics, the Press & Pop Culture. If you are a fan of Al Franken, Michael Moore or just plain common sense, you will love this straight-from-the-hip critique which answers all the important questions. What really goes on inside the home of boy band, O-Town? When did Vice President Dick Cheney actually die? Why will John Ashcroft use pork plantations in the War on Terror? And how do you celebrate Black History Month if you’re not black? Welcome to the voice of a new generation of political satire. This book is sure to tickle your funny bone and assault your belief system. Read it, before doing so becomes illegal!
