McClellan v Bush: Amazon Wins

Former White House press secretary Scott McClellan’s memoir, What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception is all over the news today as the White House reacts to its contents. Since the book isn’t on sale till June 2, the media blitz is driving everyone to Amazon.com, making it the #1 book on their sales ranking, knocking The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch out of the top spot. It will be interesting to see if the media blitz keep this book moving next week when it finally hits the stores.

23/6 has a great recap of all the headlines here including my favorite from the Thaindian News, “McClellen Hits on President Bush.”
