For twelve years Dan Bongino‘s job was to protect the nation’s leaders, including two presidents. He was a Secret Service agent, privy to what he calls “the bubble,” the insular world occupied by the leaders, hangers-on, and wannabes at the very top of the federal government.

But eventually Bongino became disillusioned — not with his job, but with the attitudes and actions of the politicians whose rhetoric he was exposed to daily.

So Bongino left the Secret Service and ran for United States Senate from Maryland, in 2012. He lost the race, but found a new voice.

Calvin  TrillinTrillin

His publisher calls this “the definitive collection of his humor” — Calvin Trillin fans will just call it a great read, and a fun look back at forty years’ worth of columns, poems, book excerpts, and essays.

Calvin  Trillin

What he’s done here is cull through and sort, by topic, the best of his four decades. From politics to modern culture to his mother’s miraculous leftovers, Trillin covers it all. And no politician is safe from his poet’s sword. Except maybe someone whose name has neither rhyme nor meter.

Politicians’ sexual dalliances have always been the fuel for rumor and scandal. But only rarely are they subject to the bright antiseptic glare of a serious historic survey, with an eye to how they influenced and shaped public policy.

Larry  Flynt

The new book “One Nation Under Sex,” by America’s best-known pornographer Larry Flynt, with Columbia University historian David Eisenbach, aims to fill in the gaps in our historical knowledge.While Flynt is renowned for digging up dirt on contemporary politicians, with this book he wanted to see if our leaders had always been this randy. The short answer? Yes, they certainly have.

George Allen — the former U.S. Senator and Governor of Virginia — likes to say he grew up with one foot in sports and the other in public service. The son of legendary NFL coach George Allen, he got regular, early exposure to valuable lessons in sportsmanship.
