In every election year, we hear much about the all-powerful "bases" of each major party. Who are these activists? What drives them? And why are they all equally dangerous to our lives, liberties, and pursuits of happiness? In Dumbocracy, journalist Marty Beckerman spends four years with foot soldiers of the Left and Right - pro-choice and anti-choice, pro-gay rights and anti-gay rights, pro-war and anti-war - and delivers a searing, hilarious indictment of the True Believer mentality.

Marty Beckerman, is also the author of Generation S.L.U.T. (MTV Books, 2004). He has written for Playboy, Reason, Discover, The Huffington Post, and New York Press. He has been featured by The New York Times, the New York Post, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, and National Public Radio. Hunter S. Thompson once called him a ?morbid little bastard,? which Beckerman considers the greatest compliment of his career.
