Parliament of Whores : A Lone Humorist Attempts to Explain the Entire U.S. Government
by P. J. O'Rourke and Andrew Ferguson




Overview -

#1 New York Times bestseller: "An everyman's guide to Washington" by the savagely funny political humorist and author of How the Hell Did This Happen? (The New York Times).

P. J. O'Rourke's 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 renowned journalist Andrew Ferguson—showing us that although the names may change, the game stays the same . . . or, occasionally, gets worse.

Parliament of Whores is a "gonzo civics book" that takes us through the ethical foibles, pork-barrel flimflam, and Beltway bureaucracy, leaving no sacred cow unskewered and no politically correct sensitivities unscorched (Chicago Tribune).

"Insulting, inflammatory, profane, and absolutely great reading." —The Washington Post Book World
