Obama-Bashing Books Roll In

President Obama is giving conservative publishing a shot in the arm, notes the Washington Post‘s “Short Stack” book blog. The post mentions two hardcovers: Michelle Malkin’s Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies, which comes on the heels of Dick Morris’s Catastrophe – How Obama, Congress and the Special Interests Are Transforming a Slump Into a Crash, Freedom Into Socialism, and a Disaster Into a Catastrophe … and How to Fight Back. Malkin reserves are as high as 112 on 19 or fewer copies in one system we checked, while Morris reserves reached 155 on 29 copies.

Malkin recently discussed Culture of Corruption on the left-learning talk show The Viewdominating the conversation after co-hosts Joyce Behar and Whopee Goldberg admitted they had not studied her book, according to the Los Angeles Times blog “Top of the Ticket,” which includes the video. Malkin also appeared on the Today Show last Friday. Morris’s Catastrophe has received less media play, but reached the top of the New York Times bestseller list in early July.

Malkin’s Culture of Corruption prompted comedian Bill Maher to suggest on his HBO show that “If Malkin could write a comprehensive analysis of the Obama presidency based on, say, his first 15 minutes on the job, well, there had to be other titles with similar aspirations.” Books that Maher joked would also be “a little premature” include Jonah Goldberg’s Failure: Why the Obama Girls Never Amounted to Anything and Rush Limbaugh’s Clownfall: How Al Franken Destroyed the Senate, Bankrupted Minnesota, and Ruined Ice Fishing Forever.
