    I've posted it at the end of the 'Manton's book out' thread, but it has to be shouted from the roof tops:

    I've just checked amazon.com,
    Our friend Manton (Nicholas Antongiavanni) is outselling Mary Cheney!!!!
    Today he ranks #4245 to Ms Cheney's #4266.

    Well done Manton.
    Allegedly Ms Cheney got an advance of US $1million.
    I presume Manton's advance must have been higher.

    Running neck and neck with Ms. Cheney in the 4000's is unlikely to be cheery to either publisher (BTW, with a $1 miilion dollar advance, did she at least get to put pictures in her book?)

    i can't imagine mary cheney's book earning back its advance. hell, i can't imagine anybody buying the damn book. she says nothing beyond pissing liberals because they're in favor of gay rights while praising the hell out of her odious parents.

    In the sort of volumes you are talking about a couple of copies either way makes a big difference, today Mary is at 2,749 and Manton is at 5,552. On the otherhand on Wednesday I seem to remember Manton was around 2,500.

    Ms. Cheney was not helped with a fantastic book party (June 1st) at Venanzi as well as the "word of mouth" of this esteemed forum.

    Apparently not as long as Ms Cheney.

    the reason for this is members of the republican party were not yet informed that they are all required to purchase one copy each.

    Alan, that is the best laugh I've had all week! I actually pictured that happening: he in his bespoke navy chalk-stripe and polished mahogany cap-toes; she in her flannel and jeans...I'm still laughing!
