Why I’m the worst political pundit ever
Last night was Halloween. My girlfriend and I were headed out to see the ghouls, ghosts, and girls on the prowl. But of course, before we left, she needed to “get ready.”
“Will this be a long one or a short one,” I asked. “Long one” she said. Uh oh.
Tonight was Halloween and her costume make up was gonna take time. I knew I had 45-60 minutes of free time on my hands.
So, I did what everyone else does with an hour to kill, I did a Twitter AMA (Ask Me Anything).
The first question I got was, “Who is going to win the U.S. Senate race in Texas?”
Uh oh, this isn’t going to go well, I thought.
I don’t know anything about the Senate race in Texas.
And then I realized, I don’t know anything about any of the mid-term elections. Sure, they’re important, I just don’t have a stinking clue about any of them.
That’s for real political nerds to figure out.
“But, Jack, didn’t you write a book about politics?”
Well, yes, and..no. Mostly, NO.
My book, “Democrat to Deplorable” ( http://a.co/d/ilDKWjg ) IS about the 2016 Presidential election, but it’s not a political book per se.
It’s a book about our culture more than anything. I don’t talk about Trump’s policies or the complexities of passing legislation (booooring).
What I do talk about is all the crazy-making things happening in our culture. The insanity on college campuses. The media manipulation. The lies we’re told starting in childhood.
See, Democrat to Deplorable isn’t a book about Trump, it’s a book about you.
It’s about your life, your experiences, and just why the hell everything seems so f’ing stupid today.
I talked to countless people just like you, people who’ve felt the same way you have. Hell, I even interviewed some of you for the book. And along the way I got an intimate look into one of the bravest groups of people in our country right now: the nine million Obama voters who ditched the Democrats and embraced Donald Trump.
If you want to feel less crazy, if you want to find a roadmap out of our cultural hell-scape, if you want to feel like someone understands you: you should be reading my book.
You can get it on Amazon, my friends.
