Tea Party Fairy Tales by James Finn Garner

This was a bookclub book that someone chose. I have a very weird sense of humor and I thought this work of satire was just about as genius as it gets. Yes, it’s a little ridiculous. Yes, it goes over the top at times – but that’s kind of the point, right?

The most interesting part, for me, was that a few of our members thought it was the real deal. Ah… the life of politics, right?

Honestly, this was super funny, spinning all over the place from various traditional fairy tales.

Highly recommended for those with a fabulous sense of humor who need a giggle – sometimes at the expense of others. (Hey, no judgement here!)

Once upon a time, James Finn Garner tried to “improve” young minds by rewriting classic children’s stories in Politically Correct Bedtime Stories. His plan may have worked all too well. Now, to save us from creeping socialism, death panels and everything progressive, he has written the antidote, Tea Party Fairy Tales.

In Tea Party Fairy Tales, Red Riding Hood stands up for her Second Amendment rights, the Little Match Girl defends the magic of the free market to her grave, and Jack of “Beanstalk” fame shows the moral decay of a life on the dole. For those who find these too long-winded, more than a dozen Aesop’s Fables have been reworked to illustrate the eternal truths of American conservatism in handy, shouting-points form.

Tea Party Fairy Tales deserves a place on every young American’s nightstand, right next to the Rush Limbaugh plush doll and a Smith & Wesson automatic, to help prevent the destruction of everything good and true in American culture. “Wake up, Storybookland! Before it’s too late!”
