This Just In

 

December 2, 2010 – St. Martin’s Press has purchased the rights to a book by U.S. Senate candidate from Delaware, Christine O’Donnell.   The deal was negotiated by St. Martin’s publisher Matthew Shear and Dan Strone, CEO of Trident Media Group.

A Tea Party favorite, O’Donnell was the Republican Party nominee in Delaware’s 2010 U.S. Senate special election.  With strong support from Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement, she defeated nine-term U.S. Representative and former governor Michael Castle in the Republican primary, losing the general election to Democrat Chris Coons.  In the process, she became the most covered candidate by the media in 2010.

O’Donnell’s book will take the reader behind the scenes of her race for the Senate, and embody O’Donnell’s identification with America’s frustrations and concerns with the current political climate.  According to O’Donnell, “The 2010 midterm elections were just the beginning—the first rumblings of a revolution that has not fully erupted.  I plan on making my book one of the revolution’s catalysts.”

St. Martin’s has tentatively scheduled an August 2011 publication date.

I’ll be disappointed if Fred Davis doesn’t do the trailer and “witch” doesn’t make it somewhere on the cover.

The best book trailer of the year, by the way, was for Laura Ingraham’s Obama Diaries

Billy Graham: Neither Prophet nor Theologian

Asked in 1972 if he believed in miracles, Billy Graham answered: Yes, Jesus performed some and there are many "miracles around us today, including television and airplanes." Graham was no theologian. Neither was he a prophet. Jesus said "a prophet hath no honor in his own country." Prophets take adversarial ... Read More

Why We Can’t Have Wakanda

SPOILERS AHEAD Black Panther is a really good movie that lives up to the hype in just about every way.

Obstruction Confusions

In his Lawfare critique of one of my several columns about the purported obstruction case against President Trump, Gabriel Schoenfeld loses me — as I suspect he will lose others — when he says of himself, “I do not think I am Trump-deranged.” Gabe graciously expresses fondness for me, and the feeling is ...
