It's like Dr. Seuss for grown ups who vote

I've actually never been a big Calvin Trillin fan. It isn't because he's not good at what he does, it's because what he does hasn't ever really been my thing. Still, if there's anyone out there hankering for an election recap in rhyming verse, Trillin has got your back with his new book, Deciding the Next Decider.

Thank you to my lovely wife who heard about this on NPR and told me about it.

Bonus: Trillin was on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart on Dec. 2. Stewart laments that poets today "don't use enough Russian gibberish" in their work. He is so right.
