Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are the best newscasters on television.


Background Information

In dire need, after living through the recent years of constipated political partisanship, I became inspired to react with the most powerful medicine: humor. In an effort to cheer myself and my friends up I wrote CURE YOUR DEMOCRACY, THE INFECTION, SPREAD AND TREATMENT OF CONTAGIOUS OPINIONS.
 

Partisanship is the preeminent political problem of our time. Certainly there are problems that appear more critical, such as our burdensome national debt and finding out who Justin Bieber is dating, but without a consensus we cannot solve them – we can make no significant stride in tackling them, only incremental gains…and losses. And, with the parties warring, consensus is impossible.

Besides, this real-life comedy of errors is better than anything Hollywood could make up!

I am a partner in a real estate development LLC and write occasionally when inspired. My earlier novel, THE GELWICK FAXES, is a terrorist thriller written the year before and presaging the terrible events of 9/11.

I live among the rolling Appalachian mountains outside the DC/Baltimore metroplex with my wife Katherine. We own a dog kennel and breed Spinone Italianos.



 

 

 

Additional Information

I've started a petition on Change.org to stop the disease of partisanship and have the AMA recognize it for the debilating illness it is. If you agree please check out its URL: http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-the-disease-of-political-partisansip

Cure Your Democracy
A political satire that humorously treats partisanship as a contagious virus. As partisan passions between Conservatives and Liberals grow ever more heated under America’s current political climate - further intensifying global warming - the rancor of debate becomes more foul and divisive. John Cooker, author of the new book Cure Your Democracy: The Infection, Spread and Treatment of Contagious Opinions, has discovered how to defuse the tension: with satirical humor. Extreme partisanship can seem at times like some sort of infection of irrationality. This is exactly what Cooker discovers that is infecting both parties. The infection is viral and is being spread by politicians and pundits! Cure Your Democracy satirizes both camps of the finger pointing, bumper sticker mentality, while offering thought provoking vantage points to view them. If you are tired of the partisan arguing in our great country, this book is guaranteed to lift you to higher ground and make you LOL!
