It looks like conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt is scrapping his new book. I can't quite figure our why though…
One campaign book that has already bitten the dust is right-wing radio host Hugh Hewitt's How Sarah Palin Won the Election… and Saved America, which the literary agent Curtis Yates sent to publishers in New York last week. When Media Mob reached Mr. Yates by phone on Monday, he'd already given up on trying to sell the book.
"The idea was to tell the story behind the effect that Sarah Palin has had on this election and how it is and why it is that she has basically turned the election around for McCain and why it is that she is resonating with so many people in the country," he said. "The intent was to finish the book by a week after the election, and to have it out before the inauguration."
Whoops. Guess it's back to the old drawing board for Hewitt.
Here are few less risky books he might want to try writing next…
* How Stephen Hawking Swam the English Channel… and Stopped Plate Tectonics
* How Paris Hilton Grew Wings… and Abolished Death
* How Mark Twain's Ghost Ate the Internet… and Peed Unicorns
Update (from Dennis): Atrios weighs in with his opinion…
They should publish it, and Fox News should just provide a complete alternate reality for its viewers, one in which McCain is president, Obama has been arrested and sent to Gitmo for terrorist activites, Joe Wilson gets indicted, American Carol made a GAZILLION dollars at the box office, etc.
