Mark Steyn, Like Han Solo at the End of Star Wars

So, all of these new political books — Ron Paul’s, Doug Feith’s, Jesse Ventura’s, Glenn Greenwald’s — have come out or are poised to come out and they’ve been knocking me all over the place on the bestsellers in politics list at Amazon. Then all of a sudden out of nowhere, like the Millennium Falcon from behind the brightest star, Mark Steyn’s America Alone bursts on the scene as the number 2 political book.

Congrats, but where’d he come from!?

Update: As several readers explained to me. Han Steyn is swooping in on a paperback falcon. The paperback edition was just released.  

Jonah Goldberg, a senior editor of National Review and the author of Suicide of the West, holds the Asness Chair in Applied Liberty at the American Enterprise Institute.

We’ve Had Bill Barr’s Back
