Do you want to understand the secret power behind the Federal Shutdown? Well, there is one, but be prepared to be disappointed at the ridiculous Oz behind the curtain.
Extortion Politics and the Federal Shutdown is both political satire and also one of the deepest analyses of what went wrong with the Federal Shutdown. It is a fun and breezy read, and carefully hides a lot of knowledge betwixt the humor.
The mighty United States of America brought to a halt by a zealous group with a narrow agenda of absolute control. Is this a plot for a new conspiracy movie? Is this the act of foreign terrorists?
No. Sigh… it is the act of Michele Bachmann and 49 others to extort the nation into obeying the edict of the Tea Party Caucus.
Good political satire is satisfying and exposing of naked truths. And, nothing is more naked than the ‘truths’ that Grover Norquist wants to teach the nation. He is simply using his favorite puppet – Michele Bachmann and the Tea Party as a smoke screen to punish us all.
If you want to know the REAL reason for the Federal shutdown, this books has the crop-circles of reality. The single little circle of vindictive control is in the shape of a lobbyist’s head. Grover Norquist is that tiny crop-circle. No aliens, terrorists or conspiracy required to shut down the Federal Government. Just ego and dimwitted oppression.
Can’t we all agree to just throw away this twisted, ugly, uptight little pirate called Norquist? Lady Liberty should never be blackmailed into a narrow, non-functional solution as dictated by a lobbyist.
