A bestselling, Harvard-bred humorist plans to knock out a slapdash, quick-buck parody of a wildly successful, head-spinning, clue-laden thriller in a flagrant attempt to cash in on the publishing sensation of the decade, but the tousle-haired satirist's sleazy scheme goes awry when his two heroes -- beautiful, brilliant Sandra Damsel and brawny, brainy Professor William Franklin -- stumble on an explosive and frankly preposterous centuries-old secret that plunges them into a puzzle-packed, plot-crammed, prose-swollen Washington intrigue whose flabbergasting finale will determine the outcome of the 2004 presidential election. Cryptic praise for The Dick Cheney Code "1, 1!" (highest rating) -- The Fibonacci Report "Hysterical! Lacey shirt!"--Anagram Monthly "I laughed so hard I xxxxxx in my pants!"--Redacter's Digest "I bend over double! I hold my sides! I tickle my ribs! I slap my thighs!" -- Mime Magazine "Three syllables, sounds like: Upper arm' Broken arm' Broken bone' Radius' Humerus' HUMOROUS!" -- Charade Magazine "Too funny for words!"
