No one wants to read Joe McGinniss' book
Sarah Palin (R) is laughing all the way to her next popular audience, delivering her solid prescriptions for what's ailing America, while her stalker, Joe McGinnis, who spent unproductive time in Wasila, Alaska isn't faring as well.
Dawn Rhodes of the Chicago Tribune has the delightfully sad tale on the fate of Joe McGinniss' book of lies.
Joe McGinniss' scathing new work about former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin may have lit up headlines, but it does not seem to have translated into hot sales.
Released on Tuesday, "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin" sits at a modest No. 58 on the Amazon new releases list. It appears nowhere on the top 100 best-sellers list for Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
As some book sellers noted
When asked how the book was selling, Doris Blechman, assistant manager of Anderson's Bookshops in Naperville, gave a simple answer: "So far, it isn't."
but Martine Moore of The Book Cellar in Chicago's Lincoln Square neighborhood admitted that the book hadn't captured her attention.
"We don't even have it out on the front table," she said, noting that the store had sold only one of its five copies as of Friday.
Now if Joe McGinnis seriously wanted to do a tell all book of a presidential candidate he should have rented a place in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, home of our present president, and pored through the available records of the city, county and state governments that formed Barack Obama (D); the corruption overflow would have produced a juicy book.
But of course McGinniss didn't want to break the clay feet of his idol; instead he produced an unsourced book that no one wants to read.
And now, according to ABC News
Sarah Palin's family attorney John Tiemessen has written a letter to Maya Mavjee, the publisher of the Crown Publishing Group, a division of Random House, that Palin may sue her, the company, and the book's author Joe McGinniss "for knowingly publishing false statements" in his book released last week, "The Rogue," ABC News has learned.
And that's for real.
