This book might be for you also if you’re interested in McCain’s thoughts on theology: “God for me is found everywhere; in my family, in the desert, in first kisses, in smiles, in laughter, in friendship, in cheesecake, in red wine, and above all else in love.” Or her thoughts on Little Rock, Ark.: “This place sucks.” Or on strippers: “Strippers. Strippers. Strippers. What is a proper trip to Vegas without strippers?” She adds that she feels “incredibly conflicted” about the sex industry but that the strippers she met on the trip — Daisy, Jessica, and G-Cup Bitch — were “happy and well adjusted.”

The book reaches its emotional climax in our Dynamic Duo’s penultimate stop, Washington, D.C. There, after a 45-minute conversation with Representative Dennis Kucinich (D., Ohio), McCain and Black bond over their shared admiration for the former presidential candidate; Black becomes “a convert to the Kucinich Way,” and McCain calls Kucinich “a living example of an antidote to the problems in politics right now.”

Who knew that the problem with America is that we don’t have enough Dennis Kuciniches?
