The Odd Couple

To write America, You Sexy Bitch, conservative bombshell Meghan McCain and liberal goof-off Michael Ian Black traveled around the country for a month in a stinky, run-down trailer. During their trip, the twosome interviewed exotic dancers in Las Vegas, a Muslim Michigander, rockers in New Orleans, and a slew of others in an attempt to capture the pulse of a politically polarized people in the midst of an economic downturn looking toward a presidential election.

The resulting read is a Hunter S. Thompson-style adventure (in the foreword McCain writes that she's a "groupie" of the late gonzo journo) that collects stories of seemingly disparate groups who, much like McCain and Black, have more in common than you might think.
