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 RV.

During their trip, the twosome fired guns with McCain's family in Sedona and interviewed a slew of people, including exotic dancers in Las Vegas, a Muslim Michigander, and rockers in New Orleans, 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 (McCain's a self-proclaimed "groupie" of the author) that collects stories of seemingly disparate groups who, much like McCain and Black, have more in common than you might think. Jackalope Ranch talked with the famously outspoken blogger/writer/MSNBC contributor/Senator's daughter about her upcoming book-signing at Changing Hands, Black calling her bitchy, the likelihood of a President Romney, and more.
