Buckley grew up amid the wilds of Foggy Bottom and knows D.C. loonies the same way Carl Hiaasen knows crazy Floridians, but if you've read his other novels, you'll find the situations and characters predictable. A fun ride, just not his best.

This novel is a satire in which an Ann Coulter like figure and a lobbyist for a warplane manufacturer try to manipulate events so that congress will authorize the purchase of very large, hugely expensive airplanes. Along the way, some real life personages come into the story. Think Henry Kissinger. Buckley is a master of the genre and this book is very, very funny.
