So it seems that once liberals get finished with their takeover of healthcare, they will try to take over books. I immediately thought of Atlas Shrugged, where the government tried something similar, as it wasn't fair that some people published more than others, so they had to limit the number of books someone was able to publish. This is a little different, but in the same vein.
I saw this first thing this morning on Boortz. Seems liberals are upset that there are so many conservative books on the best seller lists. According to the Huffington Post, they should have their own lists because it just not fair that people like Glenn Beck topped four different lists at once: hardcover fiction, hardcover non-fiction, paperback non-fiction and children's.
Waah, waaah, waaah. Do liberals ever do anything but complain that life isn't fair? You could use all that time whining and write a book about it!
And it's not just Glenn Beck - Ann Coulter, Palin, Malkin, Mark Levin, Rush and Boortz having top spots on their lists too. Know why? It doesn't take a rocket scientist...
1) Conservatives read while liberals are watching reality TV shows and American Idol. We also listen to the radio and watch the news on TV, which is also why talk radio and cable news are also dominating.
2) Ever read a book by a liberal? It's mostly 200+ pages of "it's not fair" or "this person is mean". I have yet to read one that was well-written (usually full of run-ons and other grammatical errors - Bill Clinton's was one of the worst. It made it very unreadable) and I'm sorry, but no one really cares what Al Franken thinks. And they usually have very, very minimal sources to back up their opinions, if any at all.
3) Conservatives are always on best seller lists because people want to buy their books. Glenn Beck's book, An Inconvenient Book, was amusing, but still chock-full of facts and figures. Mark Levin's book, Liberty and Tyranny, honestly had about 50 pages in the back of sources and references to back up his opinions. They are witty, interesting and informative.
4) Conservative authors work hard at what they do. Usually they have a weekly column and sometimes a radio (and/or a TV show) and publish at least a book a year, if not more. How did get Glenn Beck get on 4 different lists? Because he cranks out a new book every few months and people like what he writes!
It just cracks me up that at the end of the Newsbusters article, the Media Research Center's study found that liberal authors and books got more press and promotion than conservative authors and books, but are still failing!! How ironic is that? Now wonder they are foaming at the mouth about this - that's embarrassing!
Make a product that people want to buy and you will sell it. Simple as that.
But like everything liberals touch, they won't improve their product, but take down the successful people instead.
