Your Country Is Just Not That Into You
How the Media, Wall Street, and Both Political Parties Keep on Screwing You—Even After You’ve Moved On
By (author) Jimmy Dore

Summary

Why is your brother-in-law concerned about the Estate Tax? Why do millionaire news reporters get everything wrong? Why are blood-sucking teachers bankrupting America?

Jimmy Dore, the comedy darling of America's Progressive Left, answers all these questions and more! In this laugh-out-loud collection of essays that are both street-smart and informed, Jimmy sets out to discover what's wrong. Crackling with caustic wit and insight, no aspect of American life is safe from Jimmy's hilarious scrutiny. He gets to the heart of the issues: why Republicans should support gay marriage or why the President shouldn't have Secret Security until the country has gun control, bringing clarity and hilarity to the incoherent noise of our punditocracy.

This outrageously entertaining manifesto is an excellent resource for those who have survived long arguments during family dinners. And in a media environment dominated by corporate interests, Jimmy's take-no-prisoners approach is fearless: going after both political parties, and all corners of mainstream news. A David against an army of Goliaths.

Equal measures of silliness and spleen-venting, Your Country Is
Just Not That Into You
is the most oddly uplifting political book of
the year.

reviews


“Jimmy Dore is: outrageous and outraged, bothersome and bothered, and a crucial, profane, passionate voice for progressives and free-thinkers in 21st century America. This book will anger you if you're a conservative and enrage you if you're a liberal. Enjoy!”
—Patton Oswalt

“Jimmy has written a book with a very funny title. It turns out there are thousands of funny things in the book too! And the end is inspirational (go on, leaf ahead, I'll wait)...See, I told you. Now buy it.”
—Ben Mankiewicz, host of Turner Classic Movies

“If you're interested in laughing, you're interested in Jimmy Dore. You know what this country needs? It needs to read more from Jimmy Dore. What makes Jimmy really funny is his honesty. The whole book rings true because it is true.”
—Cenk Uygar, host of The Young Turks, the “world's largest online news show”

Jimmy Dore is one of the the funniest human beings I've ever met. I'm a huge fan of his stand up, podcast, and ping pong serve. I love his new book. It made me laugh and it makes sense.”
—Bill Burr, comedian
