Perhaps I am in the minority on this one but much to my surprise I really did not enjoy this one very much at all.  Quite possibly I am missing something or maybe the humor just went right over my head but for the most part I found "Politicians, Partisans, and Parasites: My Adventures in Cable News"  to be neither informative nor very humorous.  In fact, I thought it was rather juvenile.  I was really quite surprised because  I have enjoyed much  of Tucker Carlson's work on television and agree with him on quite a few issues.  I found his writing in this book to be rambling and at times quite tedious. The book contains very little of a substantive nature.  Although I get sucked in every once in a while I find books like this to be largely a waste of my time.  It kind of reminds me what cable news has evolved into over the past several years.   I find myself watching less and less of these shows.. Continuing coverage of people discussed in this book like Monica Lewinsky, Jerry Falwell, James Traficant and Dick Morris, to name just a few, contribute little to an intellgent discussion of important national issues.  Maybe if you are just looking for a chuckle this book will fill the bill.  Otherwise,  I would recommend that you pass on "Politicians, Partisans, and Parasites: My Adventures in Cable News"    There are so many better ways so spend your time!
