I was born in the house I built myself. I’m sorry. That’s not true. I got that from my official Senate website. We really should change that. So begins a book that has never been written before, a book that no one else could write. It’s a book about an unlikely campaign that had an even more improbable ending: the closest outcome in history and an unprecedented eight-month recount saga which was pretty funny, but only in retrospect. It’s a book about what happens when the nation’s foremost progressive satirist gets a chance to serve in the United States Senate and, to everyone’s surprise, actually turns out to be good at it. And it’s a book about our oft-maligned, deeply-polarized, money-soaked, frequently-depressing, occasionally-inspiring political culture written from inside the belly of the beast. Also there are jokes.
