Smells Like Dead Elephants


Product Description
Product Details


"Extremely funny and breathtaking in his ferocity."
"Certainly the funniest...look at the [2004 presidential] campaign."
From "one of the funniest and most honest American political journalists"
"A political reporter with the gonzo spirit that made Hunter S. Thompson and P.J. O'Rourke so much fun...Taibbi also exhibits a fairly sophisticated knowledge of the inner workings of Congress."
"Not so much a campaign diary as it is a compelling, and somewhat chaotic, mix of reporting, anecdote, social commentary, and rant. In each piece, Taibbi's rage and humor bleeds through, making this a vivid and very personal critique of both politics and the mainstream journalists who cover it....It's hard not to be engrossed by the eccentric characters, entertaining scenarios, and rich details that drive [Taibbi's] stories."
"Taibbi may be the only political writer in America that matters."
"The funniest angry book and the angriest funny book since Hunter S. Thompson roared into town."
"Matt Taibbi is one of the few journalists I read because I want to, not because I have to. His detached contempt is pitch perfect. He'll piss you off and make you laugh out loud, usually within the space of a single paragraph."
