On Thursday, Fox News reported that a 266-page self-published book by Michael J. Knowles entitled “Reasons To Vote For Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide” consists of nothing but blank pages. Worse yet, it’s an Amazon best-seller.
According to Fox:
“What’s really great about this book, you can go cover-to-cover in about 15, 20 seconds,” Knowles’ told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.
Billed as “the most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date,” the spoof book was Knowles’ attempt to razz the party for a lack of direction. The conservative journalist released it last month and the book was listed at $9.99 on Amazon — but you can pick up a paperback on sale for $7.08.
The project does, curiously, contain an extensive bibliography and a table of contents. But nothing else.
“It took a very long time to research this book,” Knowles said Thursday. “I’ve been observing the Democratic Party for at least 10 years now and when I observed their record and reasons to vote for them – on reasons of economics or foreign policy or homeland security or civil rights and so on – I realized it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank.”
A chapter on civil rights? Blank. Values? Nothing there.
“When I started researching the book and going through this exhaustive study process, at first I turned to the 2012 Democratic National Convention, and it turned out they were deciding whether or not to include God in their party platform,” he added. “And the Democrats booed God. That’s not good. So I decided probably if I’m going to make a good case to vote for Democrats, probably just leave that chapter blank.”
Not only is the book a best-seller, it has over 1,100 customer reviews and is rated 4.6 out of 5 stars.
The description at Amazon reads:
The most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date, “Reasons To Vote For Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide” is a political treatise sure to stand the test of time. A must-have addition to any political observer’s coffee table. “Thorough” –Ben Shapiro, nationally syndicated columnist and New York Times bestselling author.
I gotta admit, this is a stroke of genius and I’m frankly surprised no one has come up with this before now.
But as an author who has gone through the headache of getting an actual work published, I’m a bit disappointed. Writing a book takes a lot of hard work and is nothing less than a labor of love.
Still, I’m impressed.
