FL37119Jan. 4, 2013 - In a sign of the times, Andrew Murray Howe V's The Politician's Essential EXCUSE BOOK, reached #1 on the Amazon List of Hot New Releases in Entertainment within a week of being published, briefly passing Tina Fey's Bossypants. The first in his Essential EXCUSE BOOK series, Howe takes a timeless swipe at the (unintentionally) funny things uttered by candidates, supporters and pundits during the life and after-life of a political campaign.

The pocket sized book takes jabs at candidates, parties and positions of all flavors. According to editor Joe Keefe, what he finds striking about the book is that it contains "funny bits of almost-too-real stuff: remedies for when what they meant to say is what they actually said." Howe mixes truth with humor and satire to arrive at the 78 numbered excuses. Examples: No. 11
Opponent is pandering to the right
Use when your candidate's opponent ends a speech with "God Bless America" No. 12
Opponent is pandering to the left
Use when your candidate's opponent starts a speech with "My Fellow Americans" Howe's Essential EXCUSE BOOK series is based on his Hall of Fame great-grandfather's 1904 book of horse racing excuses: The Trottin Hoss Excuse Book, which remains a classic in racing circles to this day. The next book in the series will be The Physician's Essential EXCUSE BOOK, with more to follow. The books will be available as paperback or eBooks on Amazon.com and the author's website, ExcuseBooks.com.
