When I wrote The Best Democracy Money Can Buy after the 2000 swipe by Bush and his Ballot Bandits, I thought America would clean up its damn act and start counting ALL the votes. Boy, am I a schmuck.
Just when you thought it was safe to return to the polling booth – the Rove-bots, the sharks and the vultures and the billionaire vote busters, ballot benders and defilers of democracy are back at it big time with 9 ways to steal your vote!
So here’s the sequel to The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, but funnier, more desperate, more informative, more important than the first time – and this time with a comic book inside.
Here it is,Â Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps.
“Palast’s funniest and Palast’s best” says Pacifica Radio
“Palast’s amazing, mind-blowing, literate and disturbingly funny account of what has happened to this country has left me dizzy. Meanwhile, thanks for f$%king up my life.” – Jason Alexander aka George from Seinfeld.
I want you to get this book right nowÂ because I can’t stand the idea that you will walk to the polling booth innocent and unarmed, about to be swallowed.
The book kicks off with Bobby Kennedy’s j’accuse – The Hostile Takeover of Our Country. And in the middle thereâ€™s Ted Rallâ€™s 48 page comic book. And then my investigations of soul crushing political terror that reviewers seem to find humorous, yet too informative for you to miss.
Look, Iâ€™m donating all my proceeds of this book because I want you to know that I’m writing this not to make a buck but to make a point: America and our kids’ lives are on the line. If you think that’s too dramatic just read the chapter, “Why Obama is likely to lose in 2012.”
Bobby, Ted and I will thank you especially if you can support our work with truly needed funds by donating for a book which I will sign. Tweet it, facebook it, post it on your sites, blow out your address books and harass your relatives – if you donâ€™t carry the message, the SuperPACâ€™s will.
You can also get with the signed book – 2 posters of 7 ways to Beat the Ballot Banditsâ€¦ because the vote you save may be your own.
And this time, let’s make it the Best Democracy Money Can’t Buy.
