In an interview with liberal historian Douglas Brinkley, (P)MSNBC's Chris Matthews opined about how it was "great to see one book on the best seller list that’s worth reading these days." Nice, huh? It gets better:
There’s so much right-wing crap on the best seller list these days. It’s great to see a book that you might want to put on your shelf and let your respected friends see you actually reading.Apparently Matthews is a little upset that conservative literature has been dominating the best seller list lately: Michelle Malkin's Culture of Corruption is sitting at #1; Bill O's Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity is still on the list at #6; Mark Levin's Liberty and Tyranny is #7; and Dick Morris' Catastophe has captured the #8 spot this week. Meanwhile Matthews' guest Brinkley's book Teddy Roosevelt: The Wilderness Warrior came in at #21.
I'm sure Matthews will continue being depressed as Glenn Beck's newest book, Arguing with Idiots, is released next week. Speaking of, I hope you take advantage of TH's limited-time offer: sign up now for a Townhall Magazine subscription and receive a FREE copy of Beck's new book!
