Have your cake and eat it too.

So my copy of Game Change showed up and I immediately read about a quarter of it. You are probably wondering if you should read it and the answer is yes, you should. There are some exceptions. If you are completely uninterested in the 2008 election, then you might want to give it a pass. If you hate swears, you will want to give it a pass. This is a book that quotes Obama using the word shit on the inside cover. While it isn't as profane as some make it out to be, you get the sense that knowing how to conjugate the word "fuck" is essential to running for President.

And oh, you better not believe these people are angelic. Obama? Cocky. Edwards? Cocky asshole. Clinton? Thinks only with the little head. And Hillary. Good God. I think the makers of the Hillary Downfall parody saw the research notes for this book.

I haven't even gotten to the Republicans yet. Can't wait to read about Palin! Really though, the book provides an extraordinary view into the campaigns and the decision making based on extensive interviewing. Plust lots of dirty stories to go with it.
