4. even if that far right loser outsold Hillary this week
Hillary has sold many more copies of her book overall. Hannity will grasp any straws.

Also notice the bought in bulk symbol next to Ms. Ann's listing.

6. bought in bulk - lol
Ann Coulter: "For people who prefer quantity, not quality."

Stores probably ran out of TP....

10. Bought in bulk...


... and found forever on the tables at Costco and Sam's Club..... right wing groups/individuals (Melon-Scaife?) buy them in bulk at the publisher and park pallets of them in warehouses, or just dump them on the afore mentioned wholesalers below cost.

BTW, it is fun to bury the Ann Coulter books under the actual works of litarary talent at these places. :evilgrin:

11. LOL...
Edited on Tue Aug-05-03 04:29 PM by Itascapark
Yes, it naturally inflates the listing...many right-wing books have remained on various bestseller lists because of bulk ordering. Often, many of the copies are returned weeks later...

15. That's from the week ending July 26
They probably don't have the numbers yet for the week ending Aug. 2. Wonder what Hannity's referring to. If he claims to know last week's figures he must be clairvoyant.

26. Weird Playing with Numbers
I went to Amazon to check their numbers. Treason is listed at #12 of overall top sellers (Hilary's is listed as #33).

But when you break it down by category, hard-cover non-fiction, neither authors show up on their list.

OTOH, they still rank Stupid White Men at #13 in HC/NF, but when you go to that book's page, it says it ranks at 134.

So who *knows* what's up?

7. Call Sean at 1-800-941-SEAN
Tell him he's a liar.

Even better, wait until the end of the show (just before 6:00 Easters, 5:00 Central, 4:00 Mountain, and 3:00 Pacific) when he trashes the phone lines. Everybody gets five seconds. Make it count.

13. Exactly
Hillary's book has been a smashing success already even if it doesn't sell another copy.

17. Why don't they compare sales of GOP ex-1st lady/Senators?
oh that's right.... :)

In case you don't get my drift, Annthrax is a PROFESSIONAL WRITER! Hillary is a U.S. Senator. Amongst her many, many, things to do everyday, selling her book is just one of many other responsibilities.

Anne is a loser.

12. True or not, it's besides the point
It's like saying that a rookie baseball player hit more home runs than Babe Ruth today!

22. Anyone notice?
As an aside, did anyone click on the title and read the NYT review of Living History? ( http://www.nytimes.com/2003/06/10/books/10KAKU.html?ex=... ) I'd love to see the critic (Michiko Kakutani) do a review of Treason, so that we could 'compare and contrast'...

Sheesh, so much for the so-called "Liberal Media"!

23. No, it's not even close
Hannity is merely having a RW wet dream. It's all for effect.

24. Rich right wingers buy the right wing books in bulk
It's all a scam. Some millionaire or big company buys 10,000 books at a time to keep it in the sales list. You can get any book you want into the best seller list as long as you are willing to buy thousands of the books yourself.

My father bought 100 and gave 'em out at his party as gifts at his wife's parent's 40th Anniversary.

28. If it's just for one week,
who gives a shit? Hillary's been selling about 50,000 copies per week for about 1.25-1.3 million total.

29. colder's book for $1 ! Could this have anything to do with those fuzzy #s
Closing out my net session last night, I noticed this Pop-under window that advertised colder's book, and other rw trash for only $1 per p.o.s.

Here's that site:

http://www.conservativebookclub.com/Join/JoinHome.asp?s...

would this have anything to do with the 'colder outsells Hillary" bull?

30. don't buy it, but..
do read the thing, I sat down and bored through it last weekend at borders and the thing is hillarious, I mean for sheer out and out racism and xenophobia she gives David Duke a run for his money and more importantly if you listen to her everything W does makes sense from an insane, racist, Crusader mindset.
