Rove to Write Memoirs, Liberals Vow Protests

I'm kidding about the protests.

Then again, maybe that's not a joke.

I can see it now.

Waves of old hippies and young students dragging their pot bellies and paper mache hats from VW Bugs and Toyota Priuses. Forming human chains in front of Borders stores. Shouting down anyone who might dare purchase the work of the eeeeevil, raycist KKKarl Rooovvvvve.

Throwing Molotov cocktails. Acting out like loons.

Sort of like the days before and after elections.

In any event, here's a link to the salient news item:

Karl Rove Inks $1M-Plus Memoir Deal

Cue the imperial theme music.

Anyone can write a book that sets their mind to it, but whether it sells is a whole different matter. I picked up former Attorney General John Ashcroft's $25 hardcover book at Dollar Tree for just a buck a couple weeks ago.

Hillary got, what, $8,000,000 from Viacom (a conflict of interest anyone?)and Rove gets a million. It will be interesting to see who sells more books.

You have doubts it won't sell?

Silly you. Of course you're using a part of the cerebellum that was damaged after reading something close to the truth in Ashcroft's book.

Look, Jayson,

You can read all you want about the conservative, Karl Rove, all the while I'll be reading about the liberal, Albert Einstein. We'll see who comes out further ahead.

And we anxiously await your posting of your photographs of the protests going on at your local Borders bookstore.

Look, Herman,

You can read all you want about Albert Einstein, but that has nothing to do with this post....except for the fact that Einstein's attention span on subject topic has, in your comment, found its obverse.

We anxiously await your departure from this blog....along with photographs of no one protesting here or at the local bookstore.

I think that Rove, Cheney and Scooter Libbey should write a book together. That would really push libs over the edge!

DaveH ~ Not necessary to split the royalties - the mere title of Rove's memoir will set their heads exploding:

I wonder when it's supposed to be published?

Before the next election is a pretty fast turn around but if he has notes and has been compliling them and working on this since he left his job and he gets some help with the writing part (and that's pretty much expected isn't it?) the turn around could be pretty fast.

If you mean "liberal" in the model of Cindy Sheehag, Fat Man Moore or the Code Pinkos I might agree with you.

1914: Einstein moved to Berlin, taking a research post that freed him from teaching duties. He separated from his wife and two sons. When the First World War broke out, Einstein rejected Germany's aggressive war aims, supporting the formation of a pacifist group.

Oh Herman. You're so silly... (Below threshold)

Oh Herman. You're so silly. "The liberal Albert Einstein" whose ideas outside the realm of hard science never proved successful in any way by anyone? We should all be grateful for Einstein's discoveries, but never confuse them as indicative of a sensible or well balanced individual. But by all means, dream on.

What the hell does Albert Einstein have to do with modern politics?That's dumb as hell.

Marc, my evaluation of the likely sales success of any new book my Rove is based on these assumptions: 1. I've owned two bookstores during the 1980's and nonfiction lags far behind fiction in sales. 2. Rove has been out of the main part of the news recently, and is no longer a timely enough figure to have broad sales appeal among the general population. 3. A few reviewers or journalists will buy Rove's book and expose some interesting facts in the news, hurting, not helping sales. Given all of this, I doubt the book will become a huge seller. But I'll probably buy a copy myself, though. Will you?
