    Yep, it s pretty much as John Oliver called it Gutman precognitively satirized the 2016 U.S presidential election in this book.

    I remembered this book from when I was a kid because it was such an exciting concept when I was a kid I reread in light of the absurdity of the 2016 election which is wayridiculous than anything that happened in this book It s really quite funny, offering a clever look at our rather ridiculous election process, and remains quite relevant in addressing what a media circus the election is.

    Out of the mouths of babes. When Judson Moon decides to run for President of the United States of America it starts out as a joke How can a twelve year old be taken seriously enough to even get on the ballot let alone win Especially when the constitution says that a presidential candidate must be at least 35 years old Thanks to his friend and classmate Lane Brainard he does get on the ballot with his running mate, an elderly, disabled black woman who hasn t voted since 1944 because there Out of the mouths of babes.

  7. Cathleen Castello Cathleen Castello says:

    This would have been pretty good satire for a middle grade novel except for the fact it s a little too similar to a certain 2016 presidential campaign so is it really satire
