Interest in birth certificate book wanes

I think pretty much everybody who is going to buy a copy of WorldNetDaily’s “best seller1Where’s the Birth Certificate? has done so as sales continue to plummet at an ever-increasing rate at the major online booksellers. In fact sales are so bad that WorldNetDaily even tried to sell copies for $4.95 through their web site, an 80% mark down.

This morning the sales rank at Barnes & Noble was #7,800. I verified that my local B&N had two copies for sale in the store.

1It has been discussed in the press that Where’s the Birth Certificate? was artificially made a best seller through the bulk retail orders reported by the NY Times. These bulk orders are what WND might be selling at deep discount.

    Is #7,800 a typo?

    That is how ANY conservative book gets on the best sellers list!

    Ha ha! Now Farah has to store all those bulk book orders until he finds a way to get rid of them. There’s even more expense for him.

    For a man who makes a living off of fleecing others by manipulating their hate, he sure did a good con job on himself with this transparent cynical tactic of bulk-ordering to artificially inflate his ego and his sales. In doing so, he not only didn’t get *real* sales, but he likely will take a huge additional loss on the cost of his re-purchases. Such a hassle is not really worth any minor tax write-off offset.

    I don’t feel bad for him nor any of the gullible who are fleeced by his tactics. I do feel bad for the trees and ink wasted on this nonsense.

    I see where you’re coming from, but it really is #7,800. It was #6,393 on June 6.

    Porn Stache Joey the Freak Master will print up tens of thousands of book jackets that read, “Dreams from My Father” and then sell tickets to a book burning.

    WND has proven that President Obama was born in Hawaii. Farah and Corsi shot themselves in the foot or worse.

    It has disappeared from the New York Times bestseller list.

    The only plausible explanation for the disparity between the Amazon rank and the Barnes & Noble rank is that the bulk buying is being done at Amazon. The price is the same at both retailers.
