This book is:

1. A reminder of what honest, opinionated reporting looks like.

2. So detail-packed that it's hard to read more than 30 pages at a time.

3. A hallucinatory blend of fact and fiction.

4. Filled with parallels to and precursors of current politics (not all of which comparisons are applicable at a 1:1 level).

5. So fucking long and messy.

6. Narrated by an inimitable voice.

7. Gonzo.

And

An unfun slog I'm not going to finish. Presumably if you were alive in 1972 for the election this is a real hoot, but it's extremely dull and boring compared to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and there aren't any real political or historical insights that I've gotten, either. ( )

One of the best books I've ever read and I can't believe it's taken me 35 years to read this book, from beginning to end. It's one of those rare books that gives me confidence to do more of my own writing and makes me believe that I don't necessarily need to stick to a particular style or format of writing to be considered good at it.

Good:
- Great style
- Really, really deep insight (voyeurism really) into the brutal machinery of a presidential (primary mostly) campaign.
- It's Hunter S. Thompson

Not so good:
- More for serious students of political science and political corruption.
- I was just an innocent bystander and, while interesting, was often beyond my ability to keep track of the various strands.

I wanted to dislike Thompson, and I succeeded. That said, his chapter about trolling the Muskie campaign by giving his press pass to a drunken "boohoo" is the funniest thing I've read in years.

Why does he hate Hubert Humphrey on such a visceral level? He doesn't feel a need to explain. It was presumed to be obvious why any liberal would despise the man who did more to advance the cause of civil rights within the Democrats and in congress than any other. It wasn't merely that he hadn't advocated for an immediate halt to bombing and withdrawal from Vietnam in 1968 - it was worse than that. It was that Hubert Humphrey hadn't run a guerrilla campaign staffed by amateurs and nuts.

The protest movement His bald head was there, sticking out like a sore thumb, a sign in the Very High Frequency heavens that this was not the end of the age.

For the New Deal and The Great Society to be lumped together as they typically are masks the distinctions in their popular reception. LBJ's campaign tantalized voters with the prospect that the end of poverty and racism was within reach, and on Christmas 1964 claimed it was the most hopeful time since the babe lay in Bethlehem. Yet providence ordained that the great society would be stillborn, at least as a popular platform. That didn't stop Democrats from concluding that it merely hadn't gone far enough (at least, not until 1972). Daniel Patrick Moynihan, long lionized

George Whitefield and Henry Beecher were never so daft as to put their revivals up for a vote. Methodism must have seemed a permanent fixture upon the American landscape. But there are no such things in human institutions. It had entered the back end of a 300-year slow burn, and the failure of its 1972 revival should have been a sign that the flame which had consumed America in the 1860s was beginning to die out. ( )
