P.J. O’Rourke October 19, 2004

Author and satirist P.J. O’Rourke has earned a reputation as one of America’s premier political critics. O’Rourke is familiar to television audiences from his frequent appearances on VH1 and C-SPAN, and on such programs as Good Morning America. His best-selling books include Parliament of Whores, Give War a Chance, Eat the Rich, and The CEO of the Sofa. Both Time and The Wall Street Journal have called him “the funniest writer in America.”  In his most recent book, Peace Kills: America’s Fun New Imperialism, O’Rourke casts a keen and mordant eye on current American foreign policy. Whether dealing with the inner workings of Washington bureaucracy or the shifting political and economic sands of the new world order, O’Rourke has proven himself a keen observer of national and world affairs. His razor-sharp insights never fail to inform and entertain, and the audience may be in peril of injury from laughter.
