First week on NYTimes Best Seller and already a (+) next to his name
Geez, those neo-cons don't waste time in buying their frothing lying books. Probably why Ann Coulter(+) dropped to #9, so they could make room to stash the newest lying crap of destroyed forests: #12
LOSING BIN LADEN, by Richard Miniter. (Regnery, $27.95.) A journalist argues that the policies of the Clinton administration led to the events of Sept. 11. (+)

Our man Al is still #1, I guess Dr. Phil's book was released too late in the week to make the best sellers list. And Hillary is still in the top #10 hanging out at the #5 slot. Joe Conason and Jim Hightower also have books in the top #15 although I'm wondering who's buying Jim's book in bulk. That doesn't make me happy, come on Jim you know your book will sell well without any bulk orders. And #17 - "Stupid White Men". This book will just NOT stop selling. I think that book has been out there for 60 weeks now. You go Michael!!! (I have a feeling Hillary and Al will be around for awhile too!)

3. Just Like "Battlefield Earth" and "Dianetics"
Only the NeoCons are much scarier than the Scientologers!

4. Hey- don't knock
Battlefield Earth- it's the only decent book Hubbard ever wrote.

It's actually a fun read, even if it is a bit patronizing in places.

5. "L. Ron Hubbard was a science fiction protg
Couldn't stand to watch his royalties get taxed away
Now big celebs are walking round who think he's Jesus
What would David Koresh say?"

"Top Dollar Survivalist Hardware" - The Loud Family
