Arguably, Michael Graham came up with the best possible title for his book. In the wake of the ascendancy of the far left to the highest offices in the land--finally including the presidency itself--and with the redefinition of middle-of-the-road (redefined somewhat leftward), it came as a shock to the Democratic party politicians who brought all of this about to be confronted with the push-back of something calling itself the tea party (or T.E.A. Party--with the initials standing for "taxed eno ...more

This book is a veritable slaughter house for sacred cows. Michael Graham does an excellent job of articulating three things: 1) the basic premise of the Tea Party movement, and why it attracts people like his (and perhaps your) mother (it's not that hard; fiscal responsibility); 2) the non-logical, emotional responses against the Tea Party movement and why they are non-logical and emotional. Names are named, examples are given; and 3) how and why the Tea Party movement has not only arisen, but w ...more

That's No Angry Mob, That's My Mom Team Obama's Assault on Tea-Party, Talk-Radio Americans by Michael Graham

Decades after the fact, I sometimes still think about an old college friend. While I concerned myself with the issues that mattered - like how to pass a class I never attended, and which frat house would have the best weekend party - she was latching on to every activist (read: Liberal) group within driving distance of our dorm.

The moment I best remember, the one which pretty much defined her character for me, was when she teed off on me in a 20-minute rant - a diatribe about religion that clos

Anyone notice that moveon.org removed its General Betray Us page? When Bush was President, dissent was a patriotic duty. Apparently, that directive was rescinded in Jan 2009. All's well now that the General segued from Bush appointee to Obama's man. But dissent is alive and well in the Tea Party movement, and the left's effort to deligitimize it comes right out of the Saul Alinsky handbook, and is well documented here. At first, the Tea Party was portrayed as a mob of unenlightened ignoramuses a ...more

I have heard much of what Mr. Graham had to say before across the media spectrum and personally I'm weary of it. I believe that he found a very good venue in order to vent his concerns and frustrations, and was on target as far as my feelings and on what I have heard reflected from others. I would have liked this book a bit better if not for all of the rhetoric and snarkiness. I think the very good points of this book could have been presented in a better manner which could have possibly helped ...more

I like Michael Graham, and I liked his book well enough.

The best and worst part of this book is that Graham writes pretty much exactly how he speaks on his show. An ex-stand up comedian, he is very funny. And he makes some great points.

But the downside to that is the book feels like it just glosses over things and makes major points into punchlines. His commentary is balanced on his radio show by the callers, making his role more a moderator and comic relief. As an entire uninterrupted book, it

Hands down, the best book I have read which discusses the "values" of the Tea Party. It is concisely written and chock full of information not written in any other political books. The greatest thing about the book is that it is written in humorous fashion and not dry like most political books. The only thing I disagree with the author on is his assessment of the Scott Brown campaign, but, hey, that is the great thing about the Tea Party. Disagreement is allowed without resorting to name calling ...more

This was a good book, which covers many of the issues surrounding the healthcare reform debate in 2009, and specifically the formation of the tea party and the media's treatment of them. I struggled with giving this 4 stars versus 3, but I think I was leaning lower just because the subject matter tended to annoy me.

Great read no matter what political party you are. Both parties have messed up the country and now we need to get it back to the principles and values America was founded on. Reclaiming America's values means defending individual liberty, opportunity and accountability. There's a reason people come to America - it's to experience the freedoms we have.

An excellent book, that I would recommend to all my conservative friends interested in what's going on in our country. The beginning is a little repetitive, but it has a lot of good information and analysis, and a lot of humor.
