Summary
The story of an award-winning comedian who decided to run for office and then discovered why award-winning comedians tend not to do that. A book about an unlikely campaign that had an even more improbable ending: the closest outcome in history and an unprecedented eight-month recount saga, which is pretty funny in retrospect. It's a book about what happens when the nation's foremost progressive satirist gets a chance to serve in the United States Senate
