Response to BuffaloJackalope (Reply #17)

77. Welcome to DU, BuffaloJackalope!

Gotta say, I'm rather intrigued to read the book. But I hesitate for a different reason.

I learned during Watergate - "don't buy books by crooks." All the jailed Watergaters were either finding Jesus in prison or assuaging their guilty consciences writing books - also while in prison, many of them hitting the lecture circuit, and/or booked as speakers at book clubs across America upon their release. Which, of course, would include some additional time spent in hiding while they got themselves physically restyled or otherwise sufficiently rehabilitated in the public mind, before venturing back out to make the rounds of the talk shows. Besides, by the time most of 'em were released from prison, enough time had gone by that most people either forgot or no longer cared.

But I'm held back by the recognition that buying the book would put money in some republi-CON's pockets, and I'm pretty much loathe to do that.
