Forget everything you thought you knew about politics. This is Minnesota.

Step into the wacky world of Minnesota politics, as magazine editor Dashmagne Grant moves from reluctant hero to star of The Tonight Show, and then on to gubernatorial candidate and national celebrity. Along the way, he falls in love twice-only to lose both women-as fate hurtles him from Minnesota to Dallas, with stops in Hollywood and the Florida Keys.

All of this wouldn't be so bad if not for the moderately insane people who surround Dash. There's the clueless Minnesota governor with three last names and a political platform based on Mass Confusion. A shady best friend with a talent for picking up radio signals by grinding his teeth. And then there's the sexy super model who adores him, and an eccentric Texas billionaire who wants to make him famous. Is it any wonder Grant's normally serene life has come to a screeching halt?
