Following the publication of Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace and its sequel Dreaming War, Gore Vidal was described as the last noble defender of the American republic, Americas last small-r republican. In Imperial America, the conclusion of this landmark trilogy and his most devastating exploration of contemporary America yet, Vidal observes that theres something suspicious about the ever reckless Cheney-Bush junta. They have created the Department of Homeland Security, the USA PATRIOT Act, and embarked upon a series of wars in pursuit of the worlds oil reserves -- to the extent that they seem not to care about the decent opinion of mankind. Bushs apparent invincibility, and what he might or might now know -- especially about those new black box voting machines being installed all over the country which seem to swing votes to the Republicans -- is one of the central themes of Imperial Americas opening essay, a mordant, magnificent, and witty State of the Union for the election year (and beyond).
