The Partly Cloudy Patriot

The Partly Cloudy Patriot - Sarah Vowell, Katherine Streeter

I absolutely ate this book up. I love how much Sarah Vowell loves Abraham Lincoln, how she argues for the preservation of an underground lunchroom in the Carlsbad Caverns because at the end of the day we Americans are just "a bunch of fun-loving dopes," and how she thinks more people would have liked Al Gore if he had "nerd voice" down, which would possibly have involved Joss Whedon writing all his campaign speeches. Plus, I have this a nifty autographed first edition, so, you know. Suck it and stuff.
