Overview

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the real national zoo!

As Aristotle said, "Man is a political animal." Talk radio sensation and New York Times best-selling author Michael Savage is afraid that the ancient philosopher was all too right, and in ways he never could have imagined. In Savage's funniest, most biting book yet, the nation's fiercest independent thinker invites you to take a riotous tour through The Political Zoo—an outrageous look at today's most prominent politicos and pundits as the reptiles, rats, and birds of prey they most resemble.

Animal by animal and cage by cage, Savage brandishes his irreverent wit to keep these beasts in check. Serving as resident biologist and zookeeper, Dr. Savage asks that you watch your step when approaching the widemouth copperhead Ted Turner (also known as Mouthus desouthus), do not feed the ego of stuffed turkey Alec Baldwin (Notalentus anti-americanus), and please keep your children with you at all times around wolf boy Bill Clinton (Fondlem undgropeum).

"The world of politics is filled with uncivilized, snarling, rapacious beasts that, like untrained mutts, raise their legs and urinate on everything we hold dear," says Savage. And this sensational book is your guide for navigating the jungle of today's animal-political kingdom.

Editorial Reviews

Radio commentator Michael Savage likens America's political scene to a zoo. With a taxonomist's care, he finds niches for "birds of paradise" (birdbrain celebrities who parrot liberal platitudes), barnyard quarry (pot-bellied progressives and judicial jackasses), monkey house inhabitants (blue-state baboons such as Howard Dean and Michael Moore), and, of course, the Clinton big game reserve.

Savage's stream of conscious ranting makes for a very poor read. Would not recommend this book to anyone who is expecting to read something funny. Just plain awful.

Read Bernie Goldberg's book insteak. It was just plain better. I'm a BIG Savage fan. This light parody book is all stuff you know and is barely funny. There is no substance to his three page big-type writeup on each target. Listen to the radio show instead.

EXCELLENT, TRUTHFUL, WITH CONSIDERABLE INSIGHT INTO OUR GOVERNMENT. ABSOLUTELY, BRILLIANT MAN. THIS BOOK SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING FOR EVERY AMERICAN. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK DR. SAVAGE !!!

Dr. Savage is an amazing writer even though you won't see him interviewed on a morning show, in a magazine or read about him in your local newspaper. The reason for that is that he speaks the truth, he gives you independent Facts and it's intimidating for the main-stream media. Even though he has very strong opinions, he'll let you form your own. This book is witty, smart and intelligent an eye-opener for an open-minded person.

This is not Michael Savage at his best. An OK read with cartoons that are marginally funny at best. 'Liberalism is a mental disorder' was Michael Savage at his very best and is a must read for Americans today.

Savage continues to tell it how it is. His only biased is for the survival of America, and he'll attack anything or anyone whos against it. His main targets are usually not the common Republican or Democrat, but the extremists who are constantly trying to make right into wrong, and wrong into right. Must read, along with his other books.

This is your guide to the rarest political opinion in the world of today. If you are not used to the word of michael savage then you will have to open your mind to the sad 100% truth. He preaches that there is not only 1 party of crooks, but 2. If you can't handle the truth, then you can't handle this book.

Savage has rightly been banned from entering Britain because of his hate-filled diatribes against everybody not exactly like him. In reply, he has now called on all Americans to boycott all British goods - so he has proved that he is no friend of Britain. With Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter, he hates democracy: they are in truth modern fascists.
