Parliament of Whores by P.J. O'Rourke

Parliament of Whores

by P.J. O'Rourke

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
9 Hrs.


A lone humorist attempts to explain the entire U.S. Government. Adopting the manner of a high-school civics textbook, P.J. covers the 3 branches of government in a section called, "Money, Television, and Bullshit." He also pulls off a true miracle of modern journalism by making the Farm Price Support Bill of 1990 interesting as he recalls his experience helping to artificially inseminate a cow (which, he discovers, is not done with a bull and some Barry White tapes in a heart-shaped stall). Not only will P.J.'s guided tour of the government and analysis of public policy not put you to sleep, it will make you laugh until your sides ache, and may even make you go out and vote.
