A Satirical Field Guide


About The Book

Political Buffoons dupe YOU... Every Election Year!

Have you ever listened to a politician speaking, and thought to yourself: Man, what an idiot! This is the best we got?

Well, the short answer is: YES. Because you, me, all of us…we let it happen. Every election, we get duped, either unwittingly or willingly, by a politician who often turns out to be just another Political Buffoon.

It's Time To Break The Cycle Of Political Buffoonery!

Schnooks, Crooks, Liars & Scoundrels: A Field Guide To Identifying Political Buffoonery is a satirical look at the absurdity that has overtaken our political discourse, and what we each can do to combat it.

Through his experiences as an election attorney, blogger, columnist, and award-winning podcaster, Gene Berardelli has developed a totally made-up, semi-serious, totally hilarious pseudoscience called: “Buffoonology” seeking to quantify what makes Political Buffoons tick.

Featuring a foreword by Evan Sayet, and amazing political illustrations by John Pennisi, each chapter exposes and analyzes known traits and characteristics common to each Buffoon classification. Much like your typical nature field guide, readers are shown “case studies” from American history and current events that illustrate Buffoons in action.

Never Get Duped Again!

What is Buffoonology?

Our totally made up (and awesome) pseudoscience.
  • Everyone is a Buffoon in some way

    Nobody's perfect, after all. We all have our own Buffoonish Nature. Recognition is key.

  • Some Buffoons Are Bigger Than Others

    Especially in politics, where the opportunities to commit acts of public buffoonery drastically increase.

  • Buffoons Can't Correct Themselves

    Political Buffoons are surrounded by sycophants and "yes" people. It's our job to call them out.

  • If Buffoons Don't Change, Then Vote Them Out

    Sounds simple, right? Except voters don't recognize buffoons fast enough. That's where the book helps!
