Description

The character of Tricky presents one of the greatest hypocritical opportunists, an unprincipled self-seeker in this satirical vision of a debased national leadership speaking a language that is designed to make lies sound truthful.show more

Review Text

A string of put-on, put-down face the nation appearances of Trick E. Dixon from the time when his original (authentic) statement on abortion and the sanctity of human life leads to some uncomfortable questions about Vietnam, My Lai, and the conjecture that one of Caltey's 22 victims might have been pregnant. From then on the President is seen at a press conference, addressing the nation, until, following an operation on his sweat glands in Walter Reed, he is assassinated and found stuffed in a baggie. Obviously all of this is humor at the great majority level but there are funny moments in between the occasional slowdowns (and the limp envoi) when Dixon is into baseball and firearms and Portnoisome porno and Boy Scouts. . . . STEAL THIS BOOK from the Oval Room coffee table. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
