Whilst trying to refresh my memory about some of the characters, I discovered that the full text is online.
I love how Lewis plays with language throughout his books, right under your nose. And he came up with some of the most wonderfully apt names for characters.

Berzelius "Buzz" Windrip is the fascist president of It Can't Happen Here, a cautionary novel by Sinclair Lewis. One verse of a campaign song written on his behalf:
Buzz and buzz and keep it up,
Our cares and needs he’s toting,
You are a most ungrateful pup,
Unless for Buzz you’re voting!
