I am so pissed I could spit! Story on FNC just indicated that amazon allows reviews of "unfit for command" to contain improper commentary but not for the anti-Bush books...

My letter to Amazon.com:

I saw a news story that indicated Amazon has made a morally repugnant decision to allow the book reviews of "Unfit for Command" to contain inappropriate commentary. At the same time, Amazon has NOT allowed the Anti-Bush publications to be reviewed in the same way. Regardless, I would not have chosen to offer my opinion about any book for any candidate as it would not be the proper forum. Your hypocracy is a blight. As such, my family will no longer utilize your website to acquire anything. I encourage you to review our purchasing records to understand the magnitude of your poor decision.

Not only that, but they published a photoshopped version of the cover that said "Fit for Command" and had Kerry in front of his buds.

(Oddly enough, the exact thing showed up on B&N).

Somebody on the inside needs to get a life.

I kid you not. This is the image I got off the B&N site. It was up there for several hours the day I was trying to find a copy of the book for myself. I wrote them a nasty-gram as a result.

I honestly don't remember if it was Amazon or Borders, but another site had the same crap image up. Note they only changed the title and the picture, but left the rest of the text the same at the bottom.

Yep. But they did take out the "editorial review" by John McCain they had put in at the top of the list.

A few weeks ago they had this:

Editorial Reviews
Senator John McCain
"Dishonest and dishonorable... none of these individuals served on the boat (Kerry) commanded."

From the Publisher
Find out why John Kerry is Unfit for Command...

Thanks for the info... Sorry for being redundant. I missed the original thread and I am late to the party 'cause I'm lazy and depend on the media to keep me some where near current with what is going on around me...

I am not ignorant... I know this stuff happens. But come on!
How much more blatant can you get?
How come people are SO STUPID?
Why the hypocracy?
Why not win by the rules? ...on merit?
Help!
Oh forget it...

I want a 12' fence, razor wire and big dogs.

Last time I checked, there were over 1150 reviews of the book posted.

In fairness to Amazon, I think it was probably just too much for them to keep up with.

And make no mistake; Kerry gets trashed pretty badly in a lot of the reviews!!

Plus, many of the pro-Kerry reviews are even more enjoyable to read than the idiotic postings over at DU; the liberals are having absolutely hysterical fits over this!!

Roger that. I understand that everyone can find a forum to speak their mind. My problem is with the 'intent' not with how it resolved. Their intent was to open the door in an unbalanced fashion. For that, I will walk away.

This rant is a result of bits of my idealism washing away. Yep, it's stupid. I want to have some faith in humanity... But so much is coalescing (for me...) right now.

1. I have a five month old daughter. I am the most blessed man on the planet!
2. I watch these morons decry Bush as evil and THEY want to do harm to get their point accross.
3. I was stuck on the side of the road this last weekend, in the rain with a screaming baby and a hysterical wife. A man pulls over and offers to help push my car BY HAND through the mud to get out.
4. I work with some wonderful folks. However, there are a couple of morons that, on a daily basis, act out an episode of some pathetic sitcom. They do stuff that force you to ask: "This isn't real is it?" (brought down one of our SAN's! ...they clicked the wrong button; destroyed the CIO's mailbox because they didn't read the installation instructions for BlackBerry, they got paid $1000's to figure out how to install it; they have taken over a year to install SMS with five visits from Microsoft and they still haven't read the manual or created any script - they were paid over $100k to figure this one out; the list goes on...)
5. I am about to buy a house.
6. I am about to buy a house.

Uggghh! I will stop my complainin'...
