From the satirical masterminds behind the New York Times best-seller Goodnight Bush (more than 125,000 copies sold) comes this scathingly funny political parody of the contemporary children's classic Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! As any left-leaning parent of small children will tell you, these days it seems like the Republican Party is taking its tactical and ideological cues from a screaming, mid-tantrum toddler. That's certainly how authors Erich Origen and Gan Golan feel: The parallel came into sharp relief as they read the beloved picture book Don't Let Pigeon Drive the Bus! to their own children. In this wildly funny (and uncannily spot-on) spoof, Origen and Golan take on the Republican political machine, represented here by a cartoonish, hyper-conservative vulture, who wants nothing more than to drive the bus (even though he secretly hates public transit); give rides to his top hat-wearing, white male cronies; and run over as many "socialists," environmentalists, and public employees as he can find. Timed to coincide with the 2012 presidential election, this witty and hilarious satire turns over-the-top Republican antics into fun-loving political child’s play. But, like most children’s books and their parodies, it also comes with a liberal dose of warning if we, the reader (…and the people), don’t heed the call: If you don't want to get thrown under it, then please...Dont' Let the Republican Drive the Bus! From the Hardcover edition.

It is also the story of 3 mass murders, preaching to Charles Manson, thoughts on Barack Obama and Socialism, growing up in a cult, the abuse of Veterans, and lots of election year topics like immigration, racism, gays, education, foreign policy, health care and lastly, the environment.

Hearing held before the U.S. Comm. on Civil Rights in L.A., CA, June 15-17, 1993. Unsettling episodes beginning with & emanating from the beating of Rodney King, a black man, by several white L.A.P.D. officers in Mar. 1991, confirmed the prior opinion of the Comm. that the tensions between racial & ethnic groups in L.A. required attention. During the 1993 hearing, the Comm. concentrated on 3 areas: (a) the administration of justice -- relating to police practices & policies; (b) economic development -- pertaining to unemployment, the L.A. Transportation System, job training & small bus. initiatives; & (c) the portrayals or projections of minorities through TV in both news & entertainment production.
