Piercing political satire from veteran Saturday Night Live writer Franken, whose incisive observations have turned the Beltway on its ear and made him our reigning liberal humorist. Includes hilarious discourses on Colin Powell, Bob Dole, Arlen Spencer, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh, and such controversies as feminism, affirmative action, and family values. On family values: "Frankly, I'm getting a little sick of cranky Republicans who can't keep their own families together telling everybody else about family values. Quick. What do New Gingrich, Bob Dole, Phil Gramm, Pete Wilson, and George Will have in common? Answer. They've all been married only one less time than Rush Limbaugh."

Al Franken was born in 1951 and grew up in Minnesota. He got his start in show business in high school, when he began performing stand-up comedy. He attended Harvard University, but his comic talent went unrecognized by the school's famous Harvard Lampoon, which rejected him. Undaunted, Franken continued to do stand-up with a friend from high school, Tom Davis. Franken and Davis became celebrities when Lorne Michaels discovered their act and hired them for his new show, Saturday Night Live. In addition to doing the stand-up, Franken wrote many funny skits, including Chevy Chase's famous Gerald Ford bits, and created memorable characters like Stuart Smalley. Franken's ability to write comedy translated into a best-selling success with his political satire, Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot. The book has sold almost one million copies. Franken was elected to the U. S. Senate representing Minnesota in 2009.
