There was a time, not so very long ago, when perfectly rational people ran the Republican Party. So how did the party of Lincoln become the party of lunatics? That is what this book aims to answer. Fear not, the Dems come in for their share of tough talk - they are zombies, a party of the living dead. Mike Lofgren came to Washington in the early eighties - those halcyon, post-Nixonian glory days - for what he imagined would be a short stint on Capitol Hill.

I become so very frustrated when I read such informative and insightful books dealing with the weaknesses of our government and the people who elect them. My frustration comes when I get to the ubiquitous part that tells me I'm an idiot because I believe that there is a God. I I love everything in this book, and I agree, however, the authoritarian mindset swings both ways
