Welcome back satire Dear old friend where have you been Calvin Trillin presents some of the funniest reading I ve had in a while in what boils down to a poetic epic but instead of adventure it s pure comedy The poem starts in 2008 and talks of the general elation throughout the US with our shallow optimism of the election Then we skip ahead to 2010 with the Tea Party s emergence and the set up for the main event of the poem the road to the 2012 election and the election itself The poem finally ends with a brief look at the reaction to President Obama s reelection in the same satire you get the entire readWhile the poem itself is great I honestly enjoyed the many little breaks the book gives with short poems like the Tea Party s near haiku like introduction in we re mad as hell and breaks into short prose like Callista Gingrich s trying to hide a cough from Newt so he won t divorce her like the sickly wives before herIt s a true one time read but it s a great ride while it lasts Highly recommended
