Conservative political humorist P.J. O'Rourke flourishes in adversity. Whether he is making fun of Americans' unwillingness to contemplate the realities of foreign policy (Peace Kills) or flogging the institutions of the U.S. government (Parliament of Whores), this wily satirist thrives most when he can hurl his darts at subjects in power. His Don't Vote, It Just Encourages the Bastards exhibits O'Rourke in full throttle, uproarious splendor. In its pages, he presents a skeptical theory of politics that libertarian-leaning readers will especially relish.
