I won’t buy it, I won’t read it, but I am very pleased that, 4.5 months before it hits the stands, Ann Coulter’s “Treason” is one of Amazon.com’s top 100-200 (changes by the day) purchases. Eric Alterman’s “What Liberal Media?”, released in one week, and with an opening chapter that uses Coulter’s existence as some sort of proof of the inherent rightism of the media, is ranked 8,860.
Despite a perma-link from Atrios and daily mentions on Alterman’s blog.
Despite Alterman’s status as a Nation columnist as that magazine registers its highest sales in years.
I’m channelling Nelson from “The Simpsons” right now.
