A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the White House – Audio CD Review



A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the White House

By Charles Osgood

Read by Norman Dietz

Yes there are some funny one liners.
No you won’t drive off the road hysterical with laughter.

Osgood starts by having some  fun with Tom Dewey and the election he won when he went to bed on election night and still won when he read  the morning papers — then the truth crept in.  He had lost and Truman  had won.

Osgood then tracks each of the presidential elections through George W Bush.

In 5 pleasant hours you can get a feel for the humorous gaffes that each candidate fell into.

In this campaign season you can appreciate the lack  of humor that seems to go along with the job.

Not much was said about Bob Dole whom I  think could have won if his handlers allowed him to express his sense of humor.

Norman Dietz reads it well and keeps the interest  up.

Overall I would suggest another book.
