Politics and culture, culture and politics. They ve never been
normal in America, but today they re weirder than ever. Millionaire
populists like Bill O Reilly and Michael Moore dominate a political
scene spinning ever further from the real world; meanwhile, we look
to bizarre experiments like Survivor for our daily dose of reality.
In this wonderfully acerbic tour through our increasingly unhinged
culture, John Powers takes on celebrities and evangelicals, pundits
and politicians, making sense of the mess for the rest of us. He
shows how we have come to equate consumerism with patriotism and
Fox News with objective journalism, and how our culture has become
more polarized than ever even as we all shop at the same exact
big-box stores. Insightful, hilarious, and critical of both
liberals and conservatives, this is one of the smartest and most
enjoyable books on American culture in years.
