Summary expansion
As partisan attacks have become increasingly bitter in American politics, contemporary culture has found ways to channel this outrage into the outrageous, responding with comedy and satire from both sides of the political spectrum. Ars Americana, Ars Politica cross-examines American politics, culture, and history by examining Irving Wallaces The Man, Richard Condons Death of a Politician, P.J. ORourkes Parliament of Whores, Warren Beattys film Bulworth, and Michael Moores Stupid White Men to show how these popular artists have used soap-box partisanship and box-office artertainment to affect history
