If you follow politics, you might like it. Much of the book focuses on recent events in D.C., including the stimulus bill, Specter’s party change, and the rise of the tea party.
Specter even gets a little risque, though it’s not exactly “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
On the tour bus during the 2008 campaign, Specter wrote that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, John McCain’s running mate, was “a total charmer, very friendly.” He said they sat virtually “knee to knee in the cramped bus, and she radiated sensuality.”
“Her skirt rode above her knees — not exactly short, but close,” he wrote.
Specter also referred to Palin’s husband, Todd, as the “First Dude.”
There’s not much mention of Erie in the book, but there is a reference to one politician’s being thankful he wouldn’t have to campaign anymore for Specter in Erie due to our typically harsh winters.
