Sad news: The new New York Times list is out and -- drat! -- Bill O'Reilly did manage to knock Al Franken out of the #1 slot. Oh, well -- Al had five straight weeks at #1; let's see how the blowhard does.
It's a multiple-car culture-war (presidency-war?) pileup at the top of the list, by the way: The forces of darkness have O'Reilly at #1, Laura Ingraham's Shut Up and Sing! at #6, Reagan: A Life in Letters at #7, and, at #8, Persecution, David Limbaugh's account of the 23 years he spent in solitary confinement in a rat-infested prison in Marin County for owning a Bible (or something like that); lefties, libs, moderates, and Democrats have Al Franken at #2, Madeleine Albright at #3, Bushwhacked (the new Molly Ivins/Lou Dubose book) at #4, and Paul Krugman at #5. Hillary's at #10; the odd book out in the top ten is Walter Isaacson's Ben Franklin bio, at #9 (but he had a common-law wife and enjoyed life in France, so I'll put him on our side).
This list will be up at the Times Web site sometime Sunday night.
