My Life cooling off a bit

“My Life” has slipped from the top spot on Amazon.com for the first time in weeks. And Drudge is reporting that the book – which will presumably claim the top spot at the NY Times Bestseller list again the week – moved around 85,000 this week, down from over 100,000 last.

It’s a book!

After months of waiting, I’m finally able to announce that I’ve co-written a book:

Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man

Pre-order it, read all about it, and keep up to date with the Book Blog, all over at moorelies.com/book.

Thanks to all whose support made the book possible- Judith Regan, Bridie, Jim, Ellen, everbody else at ReganBooks, Jim & Lee at Moorewatch.com, Mike Wilson, and of course the family.

In Memory

“When the Lord calls me home, whenever that may be, I will leave with the greatest love for this country of ours and eternal optimism for its future…

I know that for America, there will always be a bright dawn ahead.”

President Ronald Reagan

Keepin’ it in perspective

Andrew Sullivan:

If someone had said in February 2003, that by June 2004, Saddam Hussein would have been removed from power and captured; that a diverse new government, including Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds, would be installed; that elections would be scheduled for January 2005; and that the liberation of a devastated country of 25 million in which everyone owns an AK-47 had been accomplished with an army of around 140,000 with a total casualty rate (including accidents and friendly fire) of around 800; that no oil fields had been set aflame; no WMDs had been used; no mass refugee crises had emerged; and no civil war had broken out… well, I think you would come to the conclusion that the war had been an extraordinary success. And you’d be right. Yes, there are enormous challenges; and yes, so much more could have been achieved without incompetence, infighting and occasional inhumanity. But it’s worth acknowledging that, with a little perspective, our current gloom is over-blown. Stocks in Iraq have been way over-sold. I even regret some minor sells myself. Now watch the media do all it can to accentuate the negative.
