Republican Party Reptile
Republican Party Reptile: The Confessions, Adventures, Essays and (Other) Outrages of P.J. O'Rourke | P. J. O'Rourke
4 posts | 1 read
"I think our agenda is clear. We are opposed to: government spending, Kennedy kids, seat-belt laws, busing our children anywhere other than Yale, trailer courts near our vacation homes, all tiny Third World countries that don't have banking secrecy laws, aerobics, the UN, taxation without tax loopholes, and jewelry on men. We are in favor of: guns, drugs, fast cars, free love (if our wives don't find out), a sound dollar, and a strong military with spiffy uniforms. There are thousands of people in America who feel this way, especially after three or four drinks. If all of us would unite and work together, we could give this country. . . well, a real bad hangover." "To say that P. J. O'Rourke is funny is like saying the Rocky Mountains are scenic-accurate but insufficient. At his best he's downright exhilarating . . . Republican Party Reptile is as rambunctiously entertaining as a greased pig catching contest. If you can find a funnier writer than P. J. O'Rourke, buy him a brandy, but don't lend him the keys to your pickup." -- Chicago Tribune; "Republican Party Reptile is hilarious. I laughed so hard reading this book that my armchair needs reupholstering. P. J. O'Rourke has got to be the funniest writer going, and boy does he go. This is high-octane wit, S. J. Perelman on acid." -- Christopher Buckley.

keithmalek He annoys me every time he's on Real Time With Bill Maher. He's more interested in TRYING to be funny than in having a serious discussion. And he's not funny. At all. 6mo

P.J. O'Rourke IS an #AmericanHorror (is describing an awful person as a horror a specifically northern English thing?)

Lindy An awful person is described as a horror where I‘m from in Western Canada too. It‘s often used here for small people, as in: Her children are absolute horrors. 10mo
Billypar I don't know O'Rourke- maybe that's a good thing though 😂 10mo

I frequently look at our bookshelves and think me and my husband have #NothingInCommon. #SeptemberDanes @Kalalalatja @Cinfhen
