A political and social satirist who provides a break from the ordinary with his unique insights and witty perspective on politics, culture and today's society. The founding editor of Forbes FYI , Buckley speaks knowledgeably with the unique talent of holding the interest of every audience member. He writes regularly for The New Yorker, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and many other publications. He is the best-selling author of eleven satirical novels including "Thank You for Smoking", which has just been turned into a major motion picture staring Robert Duvall, and "No Way to Treat a First Lady". A former speechwriter for Vice President George H.W. Bush, Buckley gives audiences a humorous and sardonic look at the inner workings of the White House.
