Description
Examines the intellectual deterioration of American politics, from Ronald Reagan to Dan Quayle, from George W. Bush to Sarah Palin, to its apotheosis in Donald J. Trump.
Description
Borowitz argues that over the past fifty years, American politicians have grown increasingly allergic to knowledge. Mass media has encouraged the election of ignoramuses by elevating candidates who are better at performing than thinking. Starting with Ronald Reagan's first campaign for governor of California in 1966 and culminating with the election of Donald J. Trump to the White House, he covers a host of congresspersons, senators, and governors who have helped lower the bar over the past five decades. -- adapted from jacket
