The new Almanac of American Politics

Today, I flipped through a new copy of Michael Barone's The Almanac of American Politics 2012. The Almanac is amazing as it profiles every member of Congress and every governor as well as census data and "information on topics ranging from campaign expenditures to voting records to interest group ratings."

George Will calls it the "Bible of American Politics" and I can understand why. Barone's updated book is amazingly detailed and gives the reader political information about every region in the US. It's a great reference if you're a political junkie or would just enjoy the challenge of reading 1838 pages.

Interesting.

Pedophiles have registries and politicians have almanacs.

Now I understand.

dr.alistair,

Interestingly, with all Barney Frank's talk about helping minorites, they sure don't live in his fourth district in Ma. with only 2.9% blacks. A much larger number live in Mississippi's 4th district with 23% black. With all Frank's talk, you would think it would be the opposite...
