Publisher's Summary

She is a single, twentysomething, gun-loving, Christian, Republican writer and blogger, the daughter of a senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee. He is a married, 40-year-old, gun-fearing, atheist, Democrat comedian, the son of a lesbian former Social Security employee. Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black barely know each other. But they are about to change the way politics is discussed in America.
In the summer of 2011, McCain and Black embarked on a balls-out, cross-country tour. Along the way, they spoke to politicians, gun lovers, abortion-rights advocates and opponents, gay parents, flag burners, Muslims, poker players, Tea Partiers, Minutemen, veterans, teen moms, bikers, fast-food workers, and a hooker or two. They toured the White House. They fired semiautomatic weapons. They stopped and ate at every Olive Garden along the way. But mostly they talked to each other about their differences and their similarities. It's Chelsea Handler meets Hunter S. Thompson in a political cannonball run across America.

Sweet and Thoughtful

...Not words that I thought I would use when I first bought the book. I thought it would just be funny, but it's actually a kind-hearted examination of what it means to be politically conservative or liberal, and the travails that Meghan and Michael go through to see each other's point of view as they travel across America.

I Had To Turn It Off.

What a wonderful, refreshing idea for a book - finally two people trying to show what respectful discourse can look like on the political stage. I praise both the authors for their wonderful intent and a good reading of their work.

That being said, I had to finally cut it off half way through. I really wanted to make myself finish, but I just couldn't take it anymore. The issue was not "Republican" or "Democrat". It was simply that - in my opinion, and my opinion only - one of the two authors was so much more mature than the other, and expressed their viewpoints so much more effectively, that the other author came across as childish and superficial whenever it was their turn to speak. The longer I listened, the starker the difference became; until I had to turn it off, because it was grating on my nerves. Add to this that (at least for the first half that I listened to) we never really got off the ground into discussing the meat and potatoes of the issues; much seemed more a simple travelogue, as they go to Vegas, and get lapdances... for love of country?

I'm not going to share which author was which in this scenario, mainly because I don't think it matters, and also because no matter which author I name, I run the risk of offending people and immediately having it attributed to some sort of political leaning, which I promise it was not.

I have a great deal of admiration for both of the authors for embarking on this project at all, and think the world would be a far better place if more people took a page from their book (if you'll pardon the pun).
