In February 2000, ",Rolling Stone", magazine sent David Foster Wallace, ",NOT A POLITICAL JOURNALIST, ", on the road for a week with Senator John McCain's campaign to win the Republican nomination for the Presidency. They wanted to know why McCain appealed so much to so many Americans, and particularly why he appealed to the ",Young Voters", of America who generally show nothing but apathy.The ",Director's Cut", (three times longer than the RS article) is an incisive, funny, thoughtful piece about life on ",Bullshit One", -- the nickname for the press bus that followed McCain's Straight Talk Express.This piece becomes ever more relevant, as we discuss what we know, don't know, and don't want to know about the way our political campaigns work.


David Foster Wallace was born in Ithaca, New York, in 1962 and raised in Illinois, where he was a regionally ranked junior tennis player. He received bachelor of arts degrees in philosophy and English from Amherst College and wrote what would become his first novel, The Broom of the System, as his senior English thesis. He received a masters of fine arts from University of Arizona in 1987 and briefly pursued graduate work in philosophy at Harvard University. His second novel, Infinite Jest, was published in 1996. Wallace taught creative writing at Emerson College, Illinois State University, and Pomona College, and published the story collections Girl with Curious Hair, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, Oblivion, the essay collections A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again, and Consider the Lobster. He was awarded the MacArthur Fellowship, a Lannan Literary Award, and a Whiting Writers' Award, and was appointed to the Usage Panel for The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language. He died in 2008. His last novel, The Pale King, was published in 2011.
