Ignoramuses Are Gaining Ground, Andy Borowitz Warns

From a New York Times Inside the Best-Seller List column by Elisabeth Egan headlined “Ignoramuses Are Gaining Ground, Andy Borowitz Warns”:

Andy Borowitz is known for his sense of humor, which provides both the canvas and the frame for his eighth book, “Profiles in Ignorance,” a wittily alarming polemic that tracks the evolution of American politics from grounds for gravitas to festival of idiocy. “Over the past 50 years, what some of our most prominent politicians didn’t know could fill a book,” writes the veteran New Yorker contributor and creator of the touring comedy show “Make America Not Embarrassing Again.”
