Diary of a Congressional Candidate By Richard Grayson
Paperback: $8.99
Ships in 3-5 business days.
(1 Ratings)
"A witty campaign diary by a wannabe Congressman far too clever to ever be elected. In the spring of 2004, Grayson announced his bid to unseat the firmly entrenched Republican incumbent in... More > Florida’s fourth Congressional district. Grayson’s long-shot run was made even longer by a number of factors. Grayson chronicled his efforts as a “mock-challenger” in a series of postings on McSweeney’s Internet Tendency website, and here he collects these postings in a slim, delectable volume. The author’s wry deadpan punctuates almost every entry. He benefits as much from his own droll intelligence as from the fact that American politics seem to have devolved into a theatre of the absurd; the critique of election politics that his run represents is as hilarious as it is completely legitimate. Funny and devastatingly incisive." - Kirkus Discoveries< Less
