Politics can’t save us. ¬†Politics is the idea that society’s ills can be cured politically. ¬†This is a cookbook where the recipe for everything is to fry it. The fruit cocktail is fried. The salad is fried. So is the ice cream and cake. Your bottle of cabernet savignon is rolled in bread crumbs and dunked into the deep-fat fryer. Hence our big , fat political ass.
