For your amusement, here are five books I picked at random that are spanking Nancy Pelosi’s book on Amazon.com as of 12:01am August 5, 2008. The last one is so fitting:
Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, “Know Your Power:” 782.
Tori Spelling, sTORI Telling: 13.
David Freddoso, The Case Against Barack Obama: 14.
One more. Tee-hee:
From commenter Ent, details about the review deletions at Amazon. I’ve heard about this from several readers:
The interesting side of this story is how Amazon has been deleting hundreds of negative reviews of the book. I saw the 1-star rating count at 170-something a few days ago. I hear it went over 200. Now there are 28. As people re-post their reviews, they get deleted again. No telling how many distinct negative reviews there have actually been since they’re apparently being actively deleted as they come in.
Needless to say, Amazon doesn’t provide this service for books by conservative authors.
There are some complaints in the discussion forum associated with the book.
