You canâ€™t judge a book by its cover, especially the No. 1 bestseller on Amazon â€” 266 blank pages about why Democrats deserve votes.
â€œReasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide,â€ by Daily Wire managing editor Michael J. Knowles, published Feb. 8, features the image of a donkey covered by the Stars and Stripes.
â€œYou can go cover-to-cover in about 15, 20 seconds,â€ the conservative journalist told â€œFox & Friendsâ€ on Thursday about the ultimate in light reading.
â€œIt took a very long time to research this book,â€ he said. â€œWhen I observed their record and reasons to vote for them â€” on reasons of economics or foreign policy or homeland security or civil rights and so on â€” I realized it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank.
â€œWhen 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,â€ he said.
â€œAnd the Democrats booed God. Thatâ€™s not good. So I decided probably if Iâ€™m going to make a good case to vote for Democrats, probably just leave that chapter blank.â€
The self-published trolling tome â€” available in paperback for $8.03 â€” is not all devoid of words, as it contains headers and an actual bibliography.
The bookâ€™s Amazon page describes it as â€œthe most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date â€¦ a political treatise sure to stand the test of time.â€
The book has been flying off the shelves on Amazon, where it garnered more than 1,300 reviews â€” mostly sarcastic â€” by Friday afternoon.
â€œIf Democrats copied and pasted the contents of this book into their national platform they could become unstoppable,â€ one review said.
â€œRiveting from cover to cover,â€ another said.
Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiroâ€™s one-word review â€” â€œThoroughâ€ â€” appears at the top of the book.
A similar blank work on the opposite side of the political spectrum â€” David Kingâ€™s â€œWhy Trump Deserves Trust, Respect & Admirationâ€ â€” 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 itâ€™s ranked No. 536 on the bestseller list.
