Local Coach Publishes Book: The Constitution – I’m Not Kidding and Other Tales of Liberal Folly

Local Thunderbird Academy High School basketball coach and insurance professional, Curtice Mang, has published an outrageously funny new book. Titled The Constitution – I’m Not Kidding and Other Tales of Liberal Folly, the book takes a hilarious look at the state of affairs of current politics and government. Curtice Mang has long had a passion for both basketball and politics. He satisfies his basketball passion through coaching and has now satisfied his political passion through the release of his new book.

In much the same way political humorist P. J. O’Rourke has tackled politics for years, Mang laughingly takes on many of today’s biggest topics such as big government, global warming, the nanny state and even the battle, literally, between capitalism and Marxism.

The extremely readable book contains enough humor in its thirteen chapters to make any reader chuckle and then some. “Today’s political climate can make one laugh or cry,” Mang said. “Laughing is better”.

Mang’s book has its genesis as a letter to the editor he wrote as the Obamacare legislation was passing Congress. The blogger responses to the published letter were quite funny, albeit unintentionally so. This forms the basis of the book’s first chapter. Recent Supreme Court activity regarding Obamacare makes the first chapter of the book very timely.

“The author has a great sense of humor that shows up very early in the book and continues to the end.”
- Thomas M. Hill, Launchpad Book Reviews

“Curtice Mang has done in fewer than 100 pages what others have failed to achieve in 500 pages: present a concise, lucid description of the intellectual shortcomings underlying much of modern liberal thought. That he has done so while employing his considerable sense of humor has made The Constitution: I'm Not Kidding and Other Tales of Liberal Folly a must read for those tired of the hypocrisy and absence of logic prevalent on the left."
- Skip Fischer, Former Congressional Staffer
