...to too much political thinking is to snicker, chortle and chuckle at people's efforts not to take themselves too seriously:
My people. (And here.)
The chosen people. (Here, too!)
Some combination thereof. Use the "search inside" feature. Read a couple of pages. You'll be hooked, and this book does NOT disappoint, all the way to the end. Gut-bustingly funny, well-researched, insightful and poignant. I dare you to count all the Biblical and cultural references that are subtly (and hilariously) "explained" within its covers.
On the other hand, these good folks are taking themselves a bit seriously.
There now, don't you feel better?
P.S. Just got this from a friend. Apparently, I'm the only person in the States who didn't see this on Saturday, but OMG, it's funny!
