The Honorable Neil Glick spent over 15 years working in the political arena. Working throughout Washington DC, from the US Senate to Federal and local government, he currently serves as a six term elected official.
Glick lived in Russia from 1993-1997. In his professional career he raised over $30 million for charity. His charitable fundraising work was recognized by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and the Governor of Kentucky.
His experience gives BUSH HAIKUS a witty and insightful look at the challenges all voters face in trying to find some answers in the crazy eight years of George Bush. His book BUSH HAIKUS was published so we don’t forget how bad and corrupt it really was.
Neil Glick has been seen on “The Today Show”, NBC Nightly News, The Food Network, numerous local television interviews, “RTR Television” (Russian national television), and in newspapers and magazines ranging from The Washington Post, The New York Times, Kiplinger’s, The Washington Times, The Moscow Times, The Moscow Tribune, Connections and the Russian edition of Newsweek.
He lives in Washington, DC.

Easily digestible but hilarious bathroom rea. . . ahem, excuse me, barcalounger reading.
Actually, it doesn't matter WHERE you read it. When my children ask me WHY Bush was the worst president we've ever had, it takes me quite a bit of time to explain it in a way that provides historical context. One thing you gotta hand to the guy was that he was more deceptive and polished than Tricky Dick Nixon and he seemed to displace grease better than "Teflon" Reagan. So it's not easy to boil it all down like it was for his predecessors.
Now, with this brilliant collection, there IS a way. The 5-7-5 form reins it all in. People are going out of their way to blame the current administration for the economic crisis that began with 8 dreadful years of "W." This book touches on the wars, the fear-mongering, the "a-village-in-Texas-is-missing-its-idiot" factor, the Katrina debacle, and so much more that left the whole world shaking their heads (except the diehards who voted for him. . .twice). A tickle of a read in such a traditionally contemplative form.
