American Consequences - September 2020


That the country is a mess is the one thing the country agrees on. And even about this we differ. Half the nation seems to be saying, ‘We don’t knowwhat’s wrong with America, but we can fix it,’ while the other half says, ‘There’s nothing wrong with America, and we can fix that.’ P.J. O'Rourke

We hope that our editor in chief P.J. O’Rourke needs little introduction.

He’s been mocking bad politics and worse economics for nearly 50 years.

Through it all, he’s effortlessly funny.

His jokes sparkle with original thought and truths about human nature. A P.J. O’Rourke essay or book is like a bull session with a lifelong friend – a time to expound on outrageous ideas and figure out what you really think – free of judgement and with abundant laughter. And his latest book, A Cry from the Far Middle : Dispatches from a Divided Land , is exactly what America needs today. Today is your chance for a healthy dose of something we could all use in America... a bit of absurdity in this solemn pandemic-and-politics year. If you ever have the chance to grab a Dewars and soda with P.J., please jump on the opportunity. Until then, buy his latest book, pour a drink of your own, and settle in for a delightful read.
