?Hunter S. Thompson is to drug-addled, stream-of-consciousness, psycho-political black humor what Forrest Gump is to idiot savants?

Complete with faxes sent to and received by candidate Clinton?s top aides, and 100 per cent pure gonzo screeds on Richard Nixon, George Bush, and Oliver North, here is the most true-blue campaign tell-all ever penned by man or beast. ?[Thompson] delivers yet another of his trademark cocktail mixes of unbelievable tales and dark observations . . . Packed with egocentric anecdotes, musings and reprints of memos, faxes and scrawled handwritten notes? Los Angeles Daily News?Hunter S.
