“[A] merciless but often humorous look at the shortcomings of American politics” by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Parliament of Whores (Booklist).
Don’t Vote: It Just Encourages the Bastards is a brilliant, disturbing, hilarious, and sobering look at why politics and politicians are a necessary evil—but only just barely necessary. Read P. J. O’Rourke on the pathetic nature of our attempts to govern ourselves and laugh through your tears or—what the hell—just laugh.
“Whether readers agree with O’Rourke’s politics or not, his style is funny, cutting, and insightful.” —Booklist
“P. J. O’Rourke is like S. J. Perelman on acid.” —Christopher Buckley
“The funniest writer in America.” —The Wall Street Journal
