All Henry Preston Taylor wants to do is oust the President of the United States, and he can't understand why it's so difficult. Using the tried and true methods he's employed in the past, Taylor has created "The President Project," a vast conspiracy which he feels will guarantee success this time. The only problem is the media; the most popular talk show hosts have dropped like flies, due to drug and sex scandals, and there are very few outlets available to peddle his wares. He decides that the only way he can be successful is to control the message himself, through his own radio talk show.
Enter Merton Greeley, a 30-something janitor who is thrust onto the radio due to extreme circumstances. Greeley is loud, bombastic, and phenomenally stupid; the perfect foil for Taylor's plans.
Or is he?
Talent on Loan is a raucous ride through the world of politics and media, which leaves no stone unturned and no nose un-bloodied.
