This work presents the portrait of a feckless American establishment gone large in the stomach and soft in the head. The author's acerbic remarks on the 1996 Presidential election takes into account the farce of Steve Forbes's primary campaign, the non-candidacy of General Colin Powell, the comings and goings of Dick Morris, Senator Robert Dole's triumphant return to television as a pitchman for Air France, the building of Hillary Rodham Clinton's Potemkin village in Iowa, and the sublime vacuity of President Clinton's inaugural address.
