Look at all the one-star reviews (not that they bothered to read the book) and vicious attacks on a war mom. Right wingers are real tough guys.
I give it 5 just to negate the Freepers in action. They'll spend time to give a negative book review. I wonder if they bothered to devote half as much time to supporting our troops with letters/packages, etc.
Who am I kidding? They didn't.
But, like anything else, there's a dark side to the open nature of online reviews, and when the following messages from two of my favorite authors arrived in my mailbox, I asked them if I could republish their notes. They said yes, so here's what Robert Bruce Thompson shared:
Be advised that somebody is using this page to target virus attacks against anyone who has written a negative review -- which, appearances to the contrary, is several hundred people by now.
(...)(some upstanding, tolerant lefty, no doubt) with the header "Invitation to be an Amazon Friend" appears in your inbox(this may differ from case to case, of course) praising your review and asking you to click a link. Needless to say, don't do it. Delete the sucker.
The Amazon staff has had this information since noon today and has done nothing about it. I'm sure I can't imagine why.
And by the way, the book is trash. God bless America!
But what happened to the conservative line of "they're a private corporation, they can do what they want"?
Otherwise, Amazon is a private site and they can do as they wish
If you are into reading a poorly-written, hate-filled, unfocused rant from a bitter, insane, uneducated woman, then by all means, pick up this book. Don't expect to hear any truth from it, though.
Sheehan needs to get it through her thick skull; she doesn't speak for us. I am an active duty technical sergeant in the US Air Force, and I'm here to tell you that the men and women of the Armed Forces are just that: men and women. We're not boys and girls, and we don't need some mongrel idiot like her trying to present her own crazed views as if they were ours. We're in Iraq to do a good, worthy and noble job.
Casey Sheehan did his duty, and I honor him for making the ultimate sacrifice. Here's hoping that he is completely oblivious to what his disgraceful mother is doing in his name.
Clearly this appears to be an effort by Amazon to keep the rating of Sheehan's book as high as possible.
