Politics and culture, culture and politics. Theya€™ve never been normal in America, but today theya€™re weirder than ever. Millionaire populists like Bill Oa€™Reilly and Michael Moore dominate a political scene spinning ever further from the real world; meanwhile, we look to bizarre experiments like a€œSurvivora€ for our daily dose of reality. In this wonderfully acerbic tour through our increasingly unhinged culture, John Powers takes on celebrities and evangelicals, pundits and politicians, making sense of the mess for the rest of us. He shows how we have come to equate consumerism with patriotism and Fox News with objective journalism, and how our culture has become more polarized than ever even as we all shop at the same exact big-box stores. Insightful, hilarious, and critical of both liberals and conservatives, this is one of the smartest and most enjoyable books on American culture in years. From the Trade Paperback edition.Telltale evidence of this has supposedly been the popularity of Reality TV, an o.\aquot; ymoronic term for one of Bush ... a€œThe Reality Trip: How Far Can It Go?aquot; asked TV Guide, then got too preoccupied puffing the shows to answer its own question.
