Election 2016: Democracy in Disarray: A Campaign Bloated with Bombastry, Bigotry and Blatant Lies
Explore Booksellers is proud to present Sandra Lee Stuart, signing new book Election 2016: Democracy in Disarray: A Campaign Bloated with Bombastry, Bigotry and Blatant Lies.
When people look back at the 2016 Election, they will use many words to describe it. Among them will not be "decorous," "thoughtful," "reasoned," and "civil." The campaign, at times, has seemed as if it was waged in an alternate cartoon universe. It's hard to imagine Dwight Eisenhower or Abraham Lincoln boasting in a public forum about the size of their genitals. We have had a candidate being labeled "Lucifer in the Flesh" and the love child of Joe McCarthy and Dracula. And an ultra-conservative billionaire who has contributed ridiculous amounts of money to right-wingers saying a Democrat might make a better president than the Republican choices. This has been all part of the craziness and unseemliness that has the rest of the world wondering if we have collectively lost our sanity. Election 2016: Democracy in Disarray will have the nitty-gritty, this and that of the campaign. It will also skewer those that need skewering and puncture pomposity where it needs puncturing."
