I find it amazing that the Democrats are making such a fuss over this one little book. You would think there were 100 books criticizing Kerry.

Just to be fair, let’s take a look at some of the books that are critical of Bush and Bush Administration policies. Some of these authors have valid points; others are slimy hatchet jobs. You decide.

This list is based on a thread posted on swiftvets.com.

It would be even more impressive to take a picture of a stack of all the anti-Bush books on one table, and the Unfit book on another

Considering there are far less conservative writers than liberal writers, I would assume just a handful.
