Buy This Book

Because I wrote it. Ok, I didn't write the whole thing. I wrote one essay that is contained in the book, which means I am a real paid writer now. Well, I will be a paid writer as soon as someone buys the book. One day, I hope to be able to buy a six-pack of Diet Pepsi with my earnings. (It should be noted here that our own peeved blogger, David, has 38 essays in the book and did most of the actual work. A former peeved blogger, Nikki, also did a lot of the work.)

You can buy the book on Amazon and Barnes & Noble in about six weeks, but right now you can buy it directly from the publisher for a buck cheaper.

We and GWB: notes from the first four years.

In 1998, "Clark Schpiell productions" was founded as an online humor magazine. For nearly two years, its writers published cartoons, humorous essays and the occasional movie review. After the 2000 elections, this exceedingly silly site began to transform as its writers became aware of the potential impact of George W. Bush's policies on the future of the United States of America, her people, and the world. With the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, more and more political essays were published and, as the critical 2004 elections approached, CSP's newfound activism rose to a climax. This book collects many of those political essays into one volume which, with commentary by CSP founder David Nett, chronicles the story of a handful of young people and their sudden political awakening in George W. Bush's America.

Matthew, as a bleeding heart liberal, the book might appeal to you, though it isn't snooty and literary. Mine is the only moderately conservative essay in there.

Shameless self-promotion? PM, I'm ashamed.

I only play a bleeding heart liberal on TV. In real life I'm a money-grubbing Republican. Don't tell anyone, though, it's a secret.

I'm a little peeved at KtP, though. I think anyone against shameless self-promotion should be banished to Upper Volta.

Liar. You don't make enough money for the Republicans to let you in. And don't you watch Carmen Sandiego? I don't think Upper Volta exists anymore.

You guys might be surprised to learn that there are far more millionaires registered as Democrats than Republicans...

That's because all the movie stars and rock stars are Democrats. It would be interesting to see if we eliminate that faction of the population, how many left were Democrats. Although I am poor and a 'commie pinko bedwetter' (according to my father).
