Book Wars: Beck, Hannity, Gingrich

Glenn Beck is either a lunatic or a charlatan (my money’s on the latter), but one thing’s for sure: he writes legitimate best-sellers.  Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich?  Not so much.

My sources in the retail book trade tell me they had a hard keeping Beck’s Common Sense in stock last summer.  Wingnuts actually wanted to buy the damn thing.  Go figure.

By contrast, Hannity’s recent paperback screed — Conservative Victory — sits there gathering dust.  And as for Gingrich’s new hardcover — To Save America: Stopping Obama’s Secular-Socialist Machine — look for it in the bargain bins by November. 

The literary turds dropped by Sean and Newt appear on best-seller lists only because they’re bought in bulk by right-wing organizations and given away.

Glenn Beck rules — at least as an author.  Hannity and Gingrich are frauds.
