In Thanks for the Memories, George, author and Onion contributor Mike Loew takes a humorous–yet furious–look at the last eight years of the Bush administration. From the botched evidence for the war in Iraq to the torture and violation of the Constitution to the economic crisis, this is a scathing, witty review of W’s sorry legacy, including:
•How the Taliban is spending their record opium-profits, and how Iraqis have more money than we do •Who’s who on the no-fly list, and who is listening in on your phone calls •The price of bread, milk, bananas, Halliburton stock . . . welcome to the Meltdown •Everyone is a suspect •Habeas corpus, shmabeas corpus •The welfare queens of Wall Street •We don’t sign no stinkin’ treaties
Complete with funny and shocking charts and graphs, Thanks for the Memories, George is a timely reminder of just how we arrived at this sorry state as we struggle to put the long nightmare of the Bush years behind us.
