There's Nothing in the Middle of the Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos: A Work of Political Subversion de Jim Hightower (1997)
No one in politics today can tell a story like Jim Hightower does, bringing home a hard-hitting message, yet keeping his audience doubled up with laughter. You may have heard one of his many speeches, frequently covered by C-SPAN, or you may have heard him weekdays on his nationally syndicated radio program, Hightower Radio: Live from the Chat & Chew. In the tradition of Mark Twain and Will Rogers, he skewers the powers-that-be in our country on behalf of what he calls the powers-that-ought-to-be - America's workaday majority. Now he's concentrated his political outrage and irreverent humor in this important book. Hightower whacks the conventional wisdom right upside the head, daring to point out that not only is class war raging across America, but it's being waged by the powerful and privileged against the middle class. The "ism" that we have to worry about is not socialism, he argues, but corporatism - a rising phenomenon that he documents here in detail, naming names.This book is rich in personal anecdotes and well-researched facts, and it's sprinkled throughout with Hightower's tell-it-like-it-is characterizations of the high-and-mighty.
