Bill O'Reilly is my hero.
The man is not afraid to shoot from the hip no matter what is his detractors say. He just shakes off the of bombs tossed in his
direction by those claiming to be "satirists," which has been well documented by his detractors' swell ride on the New York
Times Bestseller List.
Bill didn't take any of this lying down. He challenged you to help him beat the living business out of his competitor's sales by
buying his tome, "Who's Looking Out For You," and you responded magnificently. Sales sky'd. Just brilliant.
I've always considered my fans to be the smartest readers in the country. No one receives more well-written hate mail than
moi and I have you, my friends, to thank for it. To show my appreciation, I want to give you the chance to help make history .
As of press time, I have yet to be given a radio show of my own (that I know of), so today I take a page from Bill's marketing
genius and use this column to send out the challenge to you readers to buy my book, "Great Failures of the Extremely
Successful," (Click HERE to purchase. Sales help fund JWR.) and outsell Hillary Clinton's "Living History" in 2004 and make it Number One. And since most
of the book sales of Hillary as and Bill (my Bill, not Hillary's) will be sold in 2003, 2004 should be a cinch.
Some may consider this to be the height of chutzpah, and I would hope so. At least that might get the book some attention.
I've hit the normal outlets to sell my books in the traditional and respectable manner, but that just didn't work.
I made the standard radio stops as did Coulter, Goldberg and that old lefty, Zel Miller. I showed up on Hannity, Medved and,
even twice on The Factor. But for some reason that didn't work as well as it did for my fellow authors.
Originally I figured I'd put a conservative talk show host on the cover to gather some publicity steam, but much to my
publishers's chagrin and since I don't pay as much attention to MSNBC's hiring and firing news as I guess I should, I chose
Michael Savage. Instead of suing me he took so much pride that someone cared enough about him to use his face anywhere,
he sent me a thank you.
With my Amazon sales ranking sitting around 70,000 with a bullet (which my publisher is threatening to use on himself if we
don't getting more sales), I am reaching out to you who truly believe in America and all it stands for; to those who just can't
stand the fact that Hillary has even the slightest success; to those real Americans who want to assist our country's booming
economic recovery, and especially to those of you who refuse to let the terrorists win.
So it is that I ask you to buy my book, if not for you, if not for me, then for America. Your children will thank you. If not them,
