You can’t judge a book by its cover, especially the No. 1 bestseller on Amazon — 266 blank pages about why Democrats deserve votes.
“Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide,” by Daily Wire managing editor Michael J. Knowles, published Feb. 8, features the image of a donkey covered by the Stars and Stripes.
“You can go cover-to-cover in about 15, 20 seconds,” the conservative journalist told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday about the ultimate in light reading.
“It took a very long time to research this book,” he said. “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.
“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 said.
“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.”
The self-published trolling tome — available in paperback for $8.03 — is not all devoid of words, as it contains headers and an actual bibliography.
The book’s Amazon page describes it as “the most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date … a political treatise sure to stand the test of time.”
The book has been flying off the shelves on Amazon, where it garnered more than 1,300 reviews — mostly sarcastic — by Friday afternoon.
“If Democrats copied and pasted the contents of this book into their national platform they could become unstoppable,” one review said.
“Riveting from cover to cover,” another said.
Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro’s one-word review — “Thorough” — appears at the top of the book.
A similar blank work on the opposite side of the political spectrum — David King’s “Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect & Admiration” — hit the shelves in November. It is available for $7.19 on Amazon, where it also is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars. But it’s ranked No. 536 on the bestseller list.
