Michael Savage's 'Political Zoo'

Talk Radio Network’s Michael Savage released his 4th best selling book last week.

Savage's "The Political Zoo" debuts this week at #20 on The New York Times Best Seller list.

During its first week in publication the book also debuted at #13 on Barnes and Noble’s Best Seller list.

Savage’s other best-selling books include two #1 New York Times best sellers; "The Savage Nation" and "The Enemy Within," followed by "Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder."

Savage also hosts the 3rd largest syndicated radio show in America, according to Talkers magazine. The show airs on over 300 stations nationwide and is ranked the #1 syndicated radio talk show in his daypart nationwide.

"The Political Zoo" is a humorous satirical display of America’s most prominent politicians and pundits inspired by the infamous Aristotle quote, "Man is a political animal.”

With hilarious caricatures and pseudo Latin names describing them as the animals they most resemble according to Savage’s view of their characters.

"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).”

Savage describes himself as an independent-minded individualist who fits no stereotype. He attacks big government and liberal media bias, but champions the environment and animal rights. Trained as a scientist, he holds Master's degrees in medical botany and medical anthropology and earned his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in Epidemiology and Nutrition Science.

I was given a copy of this book Friday and I'm almost done with it. It is very easy to read and gets right to the point of how Savage views each person. I recommend it to anyone that likes satire and or politics.
