The Fat Piggy Files

I’ll just start with insult and degrade further from there.

The auction for Karl Rove’s memoir drags on a month after the Republican strategist made the rounds of publishers with Washington power lawyer Robert Barnett at his side.

And here I thought the pig fuckers in the flyover states would shag, shimmy and shuffle right up to the trough and slurp up the goodness.

“It’s very, very slow,” says an executive at one of the few houses left in the bidding. Early reports had predicted a $3 million sale, but some insiders are wondering if Mr. Barnett has had trouble getting to that number. He declined to comment.

Seems I was wrong. I know, I have a hard time believing it too.

Misery loves company.

Mr. Rove isn’t the only conservative meeting a backlash. The latest tome by right-wing scribe Ann Coulter, If Democrats Had Any Brains They’d Be Republicans, hasn’t caught fire with book buyers.

The title spent just four weeks on The New York Times’ best-seller list—compared with 12 for her previous book—and has sold 97,000 copies in the last 10 weeks, according to Nielsen BookScan, which tracks about 70% of the market.

Ms. Coulter’s last effort, Godless, sold 233,000 copies over the same time span, according to BookScan

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Gee, maybe the neocon’s economic policies are catching up with them. When the middle and lower classes are struggling just to keep up, they’re not going to be wasting money on a book by these fucktards.

  2. Jonny–

    What, are you implying that Ms. Coulter has had 14:58 in the limelight? Gee, that’s too bad.

  3. yeah, the bike network comes right after the health care network and a functioning government.

    Not in our lifetime.

  4. Coulter, couldn’t possibly happen to a “nicer” person. I’m still waiting for someone to catch her out on the street and beat her down, Dan Rather style, somewhere in the future. I’m not saying I like to see people get the crap beat out of them, it’s just that there are some who might deserve such a thing.

  5. I cant help but wonder if she gets drinks thrown on her wherever she goes like Nicolas Cage in Weatherman.

    I could answer that if she had ever been in the Horse Brass Pub in Portland…..
