Anti-Palin Books Don't Sell: Leftists Write But Don't Read

The American Thinker reports that Anti-Palin books don't sell:
Palin-flamethrower, Geoffrey Dunn of the Huffington Post released The Lies of Sarah Palin: The Untold Story Behind Her Relentless Quest for Power May 10th and Frank Bailey, former Aide to Palin, teamed up with Palin-critic Jeanne Devon to release Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years on May 24th. Ardent opponents of Sarah Palin have been highly-anticipating these books which promised to tear down Palin's public image for the long-term.

Interestingly, Geoffrey Dunn's book has not even hit Amazon's top-100 list since its release; and after a week of media coverage including appearances on NBC, ABC's The View, Fox News, CNN, and many more, Frank Bailey's "memoir" disappointingly debuted at #40 and has already fallen to #75.
There is a good reason for that. Leftists don't read.

That goes along with the apparent fact that leftists either don't or can't think past step one of any problem. The typical example is minimum wage. The apparent obvious effect is that people with jobs get a minimum amount of hourly money. Step two is that there are fewer jobs. Step three is that minority youths are hurt the most by the lack of jobs. Leftists can't think past step one.

This sort of non-thinking is what leftist demagoguery appeals to. Hint to leftists: demagoguery by definition refers to appeals to emotion rather than logic. Every time I hear as leftist refer to a reasoned argument as demagoguery, I have to assume they don't know what the word means.

Reading implies thinking. So, it is not surprising that non-thinkers are also non-readers.
