End of America ranked in top ten on Amazon!

Someday this may be a Trivial Pursuit question: Who was president when a book documenting how, in many ways, the United States is sliding into a fascist state becoming a bestseller on Amazon? We all know the answer today, as Naomi Wolf’s End of America zoomed to #10 this morning (within striking distance of Alan Greenspan and a few slots up on right-wing radio host Laura Ingraham) on The top-ten ranking comes after a stellar performance on The Colbert Report Wednesday night. If you missed it, here is a clip of the show courtesy of Milk and Cookies. In his show opener, Colbert mentioned Naomi would be on to talk about her book and its premise—that the country was sliding into a fascist state. His reply, “What’s taking it so long?” Enjoy, and it’s great to see so many patriots out there willing to engage in a debate about how to keep this country from sliding into oblivion. This is not a partisan message, but one that cuts across political parties and ideologies. Democrats have been as asleep at the switch as Republicans, and its time for all of us to remember our role in this democracy of ours. Naomi has been blogging regularly on Huffington Post and Powell’s recently, so be sure to head over and check them out. There’s more in the works. And, if you miss out on it we’ll be sure to keep you posted right here on the Flaming Grasshopper.
