    Are Tea Party supporters merely a group of conservative citizens concerned about government spending? Or are they racists who refuse to accept Barack Obama as their president because he's not white? Change They Can't Believe In offers an alternative argument--that the Tea Party is driven by the reemergence of a reactionary movement in American politics that is fueled by a fear that America has changed for the worse.

    Would you try another book from Christopher S. Parker and Matt A. Barreto and/or Ax Norman?

    Yes, although I didn't like the book I do appreciate books supported by empirical evidence. I particularly enjoy hearing about experiments/surveys involving content analysis.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    One of Ann Coulter's books or a book on immigration reform


    Which character – as performed by Ax Norman – was your favorite?

    Ax Norman did the best job that could possibly have been done with such an empirical and academic book. This book is very very dry. He did not play characters.


    Did Change They Can't Believe In inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Much of this book was redundant. The authors need to attempt to make their material more interesting. Interesting topic but not an interesting book. I don't really feel like a learned a lot from it. It was very repetitive and somewhat common sensical.
