Accidental Genius

Guernica Editions, April 2015

From Guernica Editions:

Using many right-wing extremists in North America (which means, in effect, weird Republicans), Garebian takes well-known utterances of egregious political, social, and cultural atrocity and presents them as if they were modern poems deserving of serious academic consideration. The intent is to deflate by inflating them in mock-serious fashion. So, there are samples from the likes of Mitt Romney, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter, Michelle Bachmann, Antonin Scalia, Donald Trump, etc. but also from names from pop culture, e.g. Snooki, Tom Cruise, etc.
