“This book shines the light on how Tea Party politics works, and rips the right wing a new one! I love it!” – M.L. of AZ
“I’ve never been able to laugh at the right wing, until now!” – T.S., New York, NY.
“Never have I laughed so hard at a novel with absolutely no likable people in it!” J.H. of Missouri
“This novel sucks! A fat blowhard talk show host? Like we don’t know who you’re making fun of here!” – K.A., South Carolina.
“You’re such an arrogant dick. You have no idea how conservatives think. You just hate them!” – J.F. USA
The right wing has been able to run roughshod over this country for far too long, and one reason they’ve been able to do so is because we don’t really confront them on their tactics and their politics.
“Talent on Loan 2.0” exposes both. While reading this novel, you will laugh yourself silly at the antics of the reprehensible souls who make up its despicable cast of characters. But when you’re done, you’ll look back and you’ll understand just how the right wing political machine works, and why it’s so dangerous.
This novel represents a rewrite of the smash political satire “Talent on Loan.” This version of the story has been updated to reflect current realities, not the least of which is the right wing’s attitude to having a black man sitting in the Oval Office.
When was the last time you read a really good, really vital political satire? For that matter, when was the last time someone used fiction to turn the tables on a political movement? “Talent on Loan 2.0” does just that.
Merton Greeley a fat lazy blowhard who works as a janitor at his uncle’s radio station and lives with his mother, even as he dreams of the riches and glory he’s entitled to. One day, as luck would have it, a fateful occurrence rockets him into the media stratosphere, and makes him the face of one of the most popular radio shows in the country.
The owner of the Mert Greeley Radio Program is a megalomaniacal billionaire with an irrational hatred of liberals in general and The President in particular. Still smarting after his engineered impeachment and removal of Bill Clinton failed, his intent is to use the janitor’s radio show as the centerpiece of an elaborate plan to make sure The President has an affair with someone he planted in the White House, and to impeach him based on that.
“Talent on Loan 2.0” is a raucously profane satire about how right wing politics works at the dawn of the 21st Century. All characters are fictitious, but if you read news, there will be some familiarity. If you’re a person of even the slightest conscience, you will laugh, and you will get mad at what’s become of democracy in the United States.
