She is a single, twentysomething, gun-loving, Christian, Republican writer and blogger, the daughter of a Senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee. He is a married, forty-year-old, gun-fearing, atheist, Democrat comedian, the son of a lesbian former Social Security employee. Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black barely know each other. But they are about to change the way politics is discussed in America.

Or at least the way politics are discussed in their crappy RV. In America, You Sexy Bitch , Meghan and Michael embark on a balls-out, cross-country tour starting in California, the heart of liberal America, and ending in the state of Connecticut, the home of blue-blood Wall Street billionaires. Along the way, they visit such cultural touchstones as Graceland and Branson, party in Las Vegas and New Orleans, pretend to be Mormon in Salt Lake City (only for a second), and go to a mosque in Dearborn, Michigan. They tour the nation's capital; they fire semiautomatic weapons. But mostly Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black talk to each other: about their differences, their similarities, and how American politics has gotten so divided.

The stereo type role reversals in this book add to the experience reading it.

He's the 40 something married man with kids, yet he's the liberal. She's the tattooed 25 year old single woman, rebel child of the establishment and she's the Republican.

Together with a supporting cast of "Cousin John" and "Garfield's Nermal", they travel across 20 states in a month driving a air conditioning challenged RV. The conflict points are obvious, yet somehow, the book routinely surprises when the two extreme voices overlap and find unexpected common ground.

Perhaps the entire planet would be better served if every 4 years the Republican and Democratic candidates were forced to take a one month road trip together before they began campaigning.

Funny, insightful, well worth reading.
