Sometimes You Don't Even Need A Punchline

I had to laugh when I saw an article in today's New York Times about a group of five conservative authors who have sued Eagle Publishing, the parent company of right-wing publishers Regenry Publishing, because the company is allegedly depriving them of royalties by selling their books at big discounts through book clubs and other organizations owned by Eagle Publishing.

Here's the article:"

This includes such right-wing whacko piece-of-shit classics like Jerome Corsi's "Unfit For Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry" and Col. Robert (Buzz) Patterson's "Dereliction of Duty: The Eyewitness Account of How Bill Clinton Compromised America’s National Security." I was laughing out loud as I read the list of plaintiffs. Apparently they're fine with promoting a vicious. lying, unethical money-grubbing capitalist right-wing agenda as long as it's not they who are the victims.

i thought lawsuits were so --- um --- left wing.....

gotta hand it to those lying sacks of shit on the right -- they'd even eat there on for extra 3 bucks

My favorite part was this:

The authors argue that in reducing royalty payments, the publisher is maximizing its profits and the profits of its parent company at their expense.

That sounds familiar, and I think it's the reason my ass has hurt since Bush took office...

Don't worry, the free market will sort this all out.

Dr. Monkerstein-
It's a beautiful think, isn't it?

Yeah, at least they're consistent in their scumbaggery.

The irony is a kind of comic genius, isn't it?

Idea of Progress-
It seems to be doing that, isn't it?
