review Our Gang Read & Download Our Gang ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Philip Roth Ñ 6 Read & Download A master politician with an honest sneer he finds himself battling the Boy Scouts declaring war on Pro Pornography Denmark all the time trusting in the basic indifference of the voting publ. This is a a genuine laugh out loud work of relentless satire from Roth targeting the machinations in the final days of the presidency of Trick E Dixon From his heartfelt notion of the sanctity of life for the unborn but for no one living in southeast Asia his solution to the protests against him by the Boy Scouts imprison them shoot them his gripping there s something rotten in the state of Denmark speech before his SPOILER ALERT destruction of the pro pornography regime of Copenhagen and his final campaign speech to become the new president of hell Filled with face palm worthy puns an assiduously adept and alliterative VP a press secretary so full of spin that the job is actually called the Bilge Secretary and reporter names that seem to be pulled from Colin Mochrie on Whose Line is it Anyway we are left as Roth notes if not stronger wiser and if not wiser stronger and if alas not either both as an example that report was delivered by famed correspondent Erect SevereheadThough of course any satire dealing with the presidency has lost some of its bite given what is now allowed and expected of the commander in chief why just today he sided with an ex KGB agent turned dictator against US Intelligence the fact that this was written in 1971 and is so perfectly accurate in 2018 is a testament to Roth s powers of satire and our political system s power to never change The spin and stupidity becomes so overwhelming that I will conclude this review with the final report from the aforementioned correspondentBlah blah blah blah blah blah fulfillment of the Ameriblah blah blah blah blah blah Blah blah blah one hundred years ago Blah blah blah blah of Galilee And yet those who would surrender hope blah blah blah blah blah Blah blah blah blah cherry blossoms Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah before him Blah blah blah the people Blah blah blah blah blah nation s capital
