    In Don't Vote - It Just Encourages the Bastards, best-selling humorist P. J. O’Rourke delivers a hilarious theory of politics.

    America’s most subversive conservative, O’Rourke describes government as a devil’s bargain between power, freedom, and responsibility, and goes on to hilariously skewer the politicians who have bargained with us to consolidate power, and the many mini-bargains and evasions that citizens have made with the consequences of their choices.

    Fernando says: "Would be much funnier with a different narrator"

    Story
    Would you try another book from P. J. O'Rourke and/or Christopher Lane?

    No. I don't think Christopher Lane has the right tone to deliver what O'Rourke writes.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    O'Rourke has very witty comments about the political system. The chapter about freedom was a bit too long.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It could have been miles better.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Don't Vote - It Just Encourages the Bastards?

    I wouldn't cut it, just make sure that he narration has the same tone as the book.
