P.J. O'Rourke: Why Voting Just Encourages Politicians

Author, Don't Vote: It Just Encourages the Bastards, Parliament of Whores and CEO of the Sofa

Phil Bronstein, Executive Vice President, San Francisco Chronicle - Moderator

With more than 1 million words of trenchant journalism under his byline and more citations in the Penguin Dictionary of Humorous Quotations than any living writer, O'Rourke has established himself as a premier political satirist. He is the best-selling author of 12 books, including Parliament of Whores, Give War a Chance, Eat the Rich, The CEO of the Sofa, Holidays in Hell, Peace Kills and On the Wealth of Nations. Both Time and The Wall Street Journal have labeled O'Rourke "the funniest writer in America." Upon the release of his highly anticipated new book, Don’t Vote, join us as O’Rourke unleashes his wit on our nation’s capital and its larger-than-life inhabitants.
