This ""laugh-a-minute"" collection of political jokes and anecdotes represents a Massachusetts State Senator's fascination with American political humor over the years. And his choices of it are excellent. Famous pundits, orators and in-fighters from Calhoun to Carter Glass or Truman are all included. Many of the stories are taken from the floor in Washington or the various State capitols. Others are gleaned from books, newspapers, or the jest and apocrypha of back-room political talk. For those amused by the political scene---or those who merely enjoy a funny story---this collection makes a rich night's reading.
