9780060846718: F.U.B.A.R.: America's Right-Wing Nightmare

The United States has survived clueless presidential administrations before. But no matter how enormous the crisis -- the Great Depression, Vietnam, Watergate, Monica Lewinsky's thong -- America's always come out looking like, well, America.

This time, however, something's different. Things aren't just screwed up; they're f&#!$d up beyond all recognition. Wel-come to F.U.B.A.R., a hilarious and scathing satire of the American Right's bad behavior, by the creators of Air America's Majority Report.

If you're a liberal who's somehow not panicked over the state of our Union, or if you're a Republican who's just having voter's remorse, or if you think what's happening to the country is just politics as usual, F.U.B.A.R. will open your eyes to our current national nightmare. With completely unfair and unbalanced analysis, authors Sam Seder and Stephen Sherrill take readers on a whirlwind tour of what's left of the United States, exposing the truth about the Right's blueprint for total domination -- over your money, your mind, your sex life, and even your place in the afterlife (yes, they have a plan for that, too).

Along the way, they'll answer your most pressing questions, like:

  • I'm gay. Can I still be a Republican?

  • Do I need to own my own congressman, or is a time share okay?

  • Is New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman's mustache, in fact, the sign of the Beast?

  • I thought we ran the media. What happened?

Finally, Seder and Sherrill offer a helpful and hopeful vision for a future that remarkably doesn't look like a cross between the Matrix and Mayberry. F.U.B.A.R. is the wake-up call America has been waiting to receive -- and it will probably be wiretapped.

About the Author:

Sam Seder is the cohost, with Janeane Garofalo, of the Air America radio network's Majority Report. A New York-based writer, director, and actor, Seder served with distinction as an intern on Capitol Hill, where he was once caught urinating on the IMF seal.



Stephen Sherrill, a producer at the Majority Report, has written for the Late Show with David Letterman and for TV Nation, as well as for the New Yorker, the New York Times, Esquire, and McSweeney's. He lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

F.U.B.A.R. is a military acronym meaning "f----d-up beyond all recognition." It's sad to deflate the balloon of political satire that this production promises, but it does not live up to its potential. While Seder and Sherrill craft some witty asides and attempt to shoot down the corruption and infamy of the current Administration and its loony supporters, the audiobook suffers from various F.U.B.A.R.s of its own. In particular, the written material translates poorly to audio, so the ideas appear muddled. Seder is a glib and successful radio host, so if he could learn that basic skill taught to all writers--write the way you speak--this book would not be F.U.B.A.R., but Vunderbar.
