Overview

The battling authors, Jere Nash and Andy Taggart, are at it again. But this time the result is a (mostly true) humorous and light look at Mississippi as seen through the eyes of a colorful cast of political characters. Mississippi Fried Politics: Tall Tales from the Back Rooms is a new collection of funny stories, poignant anecdotes, startling speeches and editorials, richly illustrated with photos, many of which have never been previously published.

Editorial Reviews

Mississippi Business Journal
One look at the cover, and there is no doubt this political book by Jere Nash and Andy Taggart is a little off.

The cover photo shows former Gov. Cliff Finch and Col. Harlan Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, enjoying some finger-lickin' good fried chicken at the Governor's Mansion in January 1976 in celebration of the nation's bicentennial.

"This one was designed to be very readable, something you can sit by your bedside," Taggart, the Jackson lawyer part of the writing duo, said last week during an interview at the Mississippi Business Journal. "We tried to write a history for non-political junkies."

Nash and Taggart succeeded.

Mississippi Fried Politics is a collection of stories, many of which were left on the cutting room floor from their first book (Mississippi Politics: The Struggle for Power, 1976-2006). As it turned out, all are fit for the late-night comedy circuit. Jon Daily of Comedy Central's "Daily Show" would do good to have the Mississippi tandem up for an interview.
