An excerpt from Dave Barry Hits Below the Beltway

and a revised Constitution. An excerpt from Dave Barry Hits Below the Beltway. From the Introduction To do even a halfway decent book on a subject as complex as the United States government, you have to spend a lot of time in Washington, . So the first thing I decided, when I was getting ready to write this book, was that it would not be even halfway decent.

Dave Barry understands Government better than most of the politicians do and . Dave Barry takes it to the next level. For an extremely large dose of irreverence, you can't beat Dave Barry.

Dave Barry understands Government better than most of the politicians do and certainly better than the general public (most folks don't actually understand the line "I'm from the Government and I'm here to help" as being funny). The best part of this book is that although he uses satire, there is no exaggeration on his part regarding the inner workings of the Beltway. I was surprised that the last line of this book wasn't "I'm not making this up". Enjoy the book; it's one of the best since P. J. O'Rourke's "Parliament of Whores".

Just in time, Dave Barry supplies the wholly original, much needed history and guide to the new American politics and its three capitals, Washington, D.C., Austin, and South Florida. No surprise: it's hilarious.Understanding the urgent need for a deeply thoughtful balanced book to explain our national political process, Dave Barry has not even come close. Though he himself has covered many campaigns, run for President several times, and run for cover at the rainy inauguration of George W. Bush (the man will spare nothing for his art) Barry has instead outdone himself.Below the Beltway includes Barry's stirring account of how the United States was born, including his version of a properly rewritten Declaration (When in the course of human events it behooves us, the people, not to ask "What can our country do for us, anyway?" but rather whether we have anything to fear except fear itself...) and a revised Constitution (Section II: The House of Representatives shall be composed of people who own at least two dark suits and have not been indicted recently.).Dave also cracks the income tax code, explains the growth(s) of government, congressional hearing difficulties, and the persistent rumors of the influence of capital in the Capitol. Among other civic contributions, his tour of Washington, D.C., should end school class trips forever.
  • I have read the vast majority of Dave Barry's books, from his earliest works to some of his latest, and this one has to be my absolute favorite by far. This volume is having-trouble-breathing hysterical. His wit coupled with his unique way of looking at our government is fantastic. It starts off a bit slow (going over the history and all), but once he gets into the main part of the book, it's non-stop laughs from there. A few of his familiar themes (like describing how this or that would be a good name for a band) appear regularly but at very fitting times. Our government is funny (?!) enough just by itself; Dave Barry makes it that much funnier. If you're a Dave Barry fan, you MUST read this book.

  • I like the way Dave Barry thinks. While making me laugh out loud every other minute, I actually better understand why it’s so HARD to change the government AND how Al Gore lost the presidency in 2000, both things I have occasionally pondered. And, truly, what a miracle it is that the USA works at all. Thank goodness it does.
    As a wise person once said, Dave Barry is the funniest guy in America. You should buy his books. Something like that.

  • I don't know what some of these other reviews are talking about, frankly. This book highlights Barry at his best, hilarious as usual.

    The more you know about politics, the funnier this stuff gets. Barry is a highly intelligent commentator on politics and on the sometimes insane world of campaigning and lawmaking. His new-and-improved version of the Constitution is roll-on-the-floor laughing material.

    Barry also discusses the 2000 presidential candidates, making light of their shortcomings, but also getting serious: he met both of them, and says that Gore was much more personable than he seemed on TV, and Bush much more intelligent. He's on to an important point here: the way candidates appear on TV, or the ways they are sterotyped by the media, doesn't necessarily have anything to do with who they are in real life.

    A must-have for anyone who likes politics, and actually has a sense of humor.

  • What happens when you mix a true Libertarian with generous helpings of Satire? You get an extremely entertaining book that uses great wit to lampoon the anointed elite known as "our leaders". Dave Barry understands Government better than most of the politicians do and certainly better than the general public (most folks don't actually understand the line "I'm from the Government and I'm here to help" as being funny). The best part of this book is that although he uses satire, there is no exaggeration on his part regarding the inner workings of the Beltway. I'm glad that Dave Barry is a Libertarian and his sense of the absurd is fantastic. Nothing combats evil and pompous people better than humor. Groucho Marx made a career of it. Dave Barry takes it to the next level.
    I was surprised that the last line of this book wasn't "I'm not making this up".
    Enjoy the book; it's one of the best since P. J. O'Rourke's "Parliament of Whores".

  • This book may not be the funniest one he has ever written, but it's pretty darn close! For an extremely large dose of irreverence, you can't beat Dave Barry. Go ahead ... brighten your day!!

  • Dave Barry's books are always good.He is not a fortune teller, What gives you is the fact, not the story.His book are full of good thoughts.

  • His humor makes me laugh, a lot.
    The footnotes are a little hard to use in the kindle version.

  • I still miss Dave's column and this book should be read the same way: in installments rather
    than in a gulp like a novel. Dave has't lost his voice and for fans, that't good news!
