PHONY OUTRAGE ALERT: Mark Levin’s Stupid Book Using Scary Buzzwords

The new phony outrage coming from the right is that Mark Levin’s book, “Liberty and Tyranny,” which predictably features the troll author on the cover standing in front of a — get this! — American flag, has sold 1,000,000 copies but hasn’t been reviewed by the New York Times or the Washington Post. Therefore, these papers are liberal. (Yawn.)

From CNS News:

Despite Liberty and Tyranny’s tremendous sales and high ranking on the Times’ best seller list, the Times itself has never reviewed the book, only giving it a few blurbs in its ‘Inside the List” feature that runs in the Sunday edition.

The Washington Post has also never reviewed the book.

Here’s the problem. One of the ways the right gets their fanatical ideas out into the mainstream is through their book clubs. Right wing billionaires fund these “conservative book clubs”, buy a shit ton of books, then sell them to book club members for .50. Technically, then, the books have been sold. Then, since they’re sold, the media has to pay attention to them, no matter how goofy, stupid, and, just wrong.

Has anyone ever listened to Mark Levin? He sounds like the angriest circuis clown. Like, a total psycho path.
