From the Inside Flap
Have you hoisted a sign at a tea party protest? Asked your congressman a tough question at a townhall meeting? Liked what you heard on talk radio? If so, then welcome to the angry Mob.
Aided by their allies in the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, the Obama administration is out to silence you. As long as you support Team Obama, you’re okay. But if you disagree, they accuse you of being a violent, unhinged, hate-filled racist. Typical Americans, denounced by their own government, have been left on their own. Until now.
In That’s No Angry Mob, That’s My Mom, talk radio host Michael Graham delivers an uproarious, full-throated defense of millions of typical Americans like his momordinary people who worry that Obama’s socialist policies are jeopardizing America’s future. In his unique, irreverent style, Graham fires on:
accusations that tea partiers are racists: In the upside down world of the Obama Nation, people who spend a lifetime following Reverend Wright aren’t racists. But people who show up at a rally to oppose single-payer healthcare are.”accusations that tea partiers are terrorists: Fashion terrorists, maybe. I doubt the typical tea partier is going to run amok in the halls of government, but many appear to have done so in the aisles of Wal-Mart.”a professor he debated on TV: He really thought the tea parties were some dangerous new development, perhaps linked to the militia movement, survivalist cults, orworst case scenariothe Glenn Beck show.”Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ insistence that reporters find out what tea partiers think: Really, Maxine, you can’t figure that out on your own? The huge No More Big Government!’ signs they’re waving aren’t a clue?”
The Obama administration promised hope and change” for everyday Americans. They have delivered contempt and vilification instead. That’s No Angry Mob, That’s My Mom exposes this deception in a no-holds-barred takedown of Team Obama’s condescending arrogance.
From the Back Cover
This book is for every typical American who’s been insulted, attacked, and abused by the liberal media just for showing up at a tea party or townhall meeting. Michael Graham uses his wit and humor like a club to give the Arrogant Left the beatdown they deserve.”
Michael Graham is a strange and twisted manbut in a good way. In this fast-paced, clear-eyed, and funny book, he plows through the spin, lies, and slander hurled at tea partiers, talk radio listeners, and other typical Americans. It’s Howard (I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!”) Beale meets P. J. O’Rourke with a dash of Tom Sowell thrown in for good measure.”
Jonah Goldberg Editor-at-Large of National Review Online
Michael Graham has authored a hilarious harangue on behalf of the millions of Americans who don’t know their place,’ who still think that what they earn should be theirs, and who don’t trust politicians. It’s also likely to be a call to action. Hang onit’s going to be a bumpy ride!”

Top Customer Reviews
In general, the "agenda" of the people who attend tea parties, according to Graham, is personal responsibility. They dislike government bailouts, whether to GM or Melanie Griffiths-Evans (a real estate agent who nonetheless managed to default on her Adjustable Rate Mortgage). It is not, Graham argues, that people who listen to talk radio (as opposed to NPR) and attend tea parties lack compassion. He claims conservatives contribute more to private charity than liberals. But tea party activists dislike rewarding those who make bad decisions. They also dislike government run health care and they especially dislike being told they are stupid (or racist) if they voice their objections.Read more ›
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 closed with the line, "Some behaviors are so @#!@#! offensive, they *need* to be illegal!"
I just stared at her. I was at a complete loss for words, because I had no idea how to respond to something so absurd. And dangerous.
As the years have gone by, I've often felt that same shocky paralysis in the face of the rage - and the resulting absurdities - of political zealots (within any group). When I decided to read "That's No Angry Mob", I was expecting a fun read, one that would soundly tweak those types while entertaining me. And Michael Graham certainly doesn't disappoint: This is a fun book, filled with Graham's quick wit and irreverent attitude.
What I didn't expect were the searing insights into the attitudes and beliefs of those who seek not only to control, but to eliminate all dissension. For example, in describing "normal folks", Graham says: "... they don't view politics as an all-encompassing struggle. They don't need 'the fight' to give meaning to their existence - they already have a life."
That one had me thinking for a while - a long while - and it's just one of the many insights that I'll take with me from this book. I'm pretty sure that the next time I'm confronted with a political purist of any kind, I won't be struggling with paralysis: I'll be trying not to laugh.
Found the book funny and easy to read (and listen too at times).
