Parliament of Whores: A Lone Humorist Attempts to Explain the Entire U. S. Government
Called "an everyman's guide to Washington" (The New York Times), P. J. O'Rourke's savagely funny and national best-seller Parliament of Whores has become a classic in understanding the workings of the American political system. Originally written at the end of the Reagan era, this new edition includes an extensive foreword by the renowned political writer Andrew Ferguson -- showing us that although the names and the players have changed, the game is still the same. Parliament of Whores is an exuberant, broken-field run through the ethical foibles, pork-barrel flimflam, and bureaucratic bullrorfle inside the Beltway that leaves no sacred cow unskewered and no politically correct sensitivities unscorched. "Highly pungent and wickedly accurate observations ... [from a] boisterous, pedal-to-the-floor humorist." -- The New York Times Book Review "Outrageous ... It is insulting, inflammatory, profane, and absolutely great reading." -- The Washington Post Book World "A gonzo civics book ... O'Rourke is like a trophy hunter let loose in an unguarded zoo." -- Chicago Tribune

Review: Parliament of Whores: A Lone Humorist Attempts to Explain the Entire US GovernmentUser Review - Daniel Alders - Goodreads
O'Rourke's 1991 tongue-in-cheek critique of the US Government is both fun and enlightening. The most striking aspect is how much farther we've fallen over the last 20 years since this was written. We're much more stupid than we previously thought. Read full review
