A Classic for One Chapter

In my opinion, the final chapter on the death of Richard Nixon is the finest piece of political writing in American history. At once hilarious, sarcastic and poignant, it is the prefect topping to this look at the election of William Jefferson Clinton in 1992. Scott Sowers does a fine job of capturing the anger and vision of Thompson's bizarre view of politics in the late 20th Century.

I loved it.

Just his dissertation on Nixon was entertaining enough. I laughed at a few parts (no spoilers), squirmed during a few others, but was enthralled through all of it.
