"Political journalists Chris Lamb and Will Moredock have mined the past few centuries of political history and unearthed a treasure trove of humorous exchanges. The Art of the Political Putdown is a collection of over 300 witty verbal jabs and ripostes from politicians around the world (though the focus is on American politics), all of whom share a common sharp tongue. Interspersed with 11 brief essays analyzing the use of humor and wit in various political contexts, this comprehensive collection of witticisms, scathing burns, and mic-drop-worthy insults is an even-handed, intelligent, and lighthearted political humor title that will give readers from the Left and Right something to laugh about"-- Provided by publisher.
