It’s Scandal meets Seinfeld. A political comedy set in Washington, D.C.

It’s a book for people who like TV. A serial novel structured like a television show, with individual complete episodes that each also contribute to the ongoing story.

In 2011, the Obama Administration embarrassed itself by mistaking Colorado for Wyoming on the map of a speaking tour in western states. Voila, the Fifty States Program!--fifty new federal patronage jobs, one for each state, all housed in cubicles at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building adjacent to the White House.

The millennials in these jobs call each other by the name of their states, and none of them are exactly what you’d call on the ball. Wyoming--that’s our man Elliot Vance-- could qualify for the slacker Olympics. He’s the grand-nephew of former Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, but prior to being given a States job by his wealthy father he got kicked out of an English lit Ph.D. program for insisting on doing his dissertation on 1950s pulp author F. Bob Goddard. Elliot dates a WASP-American princess who’s pushing for marriage, and his two best friends are Delaware and Nebraska. His nemesis would be Tara Travis, the slinky blonde Republican aide to Wyoming congressman Bull Wheeler. In Episode 1 Elliot was blackmailed by Tara into flying to Laramie to do some actual work.

In Episode 2 the Hells Angels, who saw Elliot in Laramie on CNN, ask him to stop earthquakes. Nebraska, him of the 21-inch neck, has a girlfriend problem, the first of his life.
