HILLARY CLINTON BOOK PAST DUE, PUBLISHER'S ANGST OVER NO MANUSCRIPT, NO TITLE;

HILLARY CLINTON BOOK PAST DUE, PUBLISHER'S ANGST OVER NO MANUSCRIPT, NO TITLE; SENATOR TOOK LARGEST ADVANCE IN HISTORY

Executives at publishing powerhouse SIMON AND SCHUSTER are dismayed over Hillary Clinton's failure to turn in a completed manuscript for her book, due out in August, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

The senator of the Empire State has already received a $2.85 million cash advance on her memoirs, from a total deal valued at more than $8 million.

MORE

"We must be off to the printer next month, but the manuscript isn't in yet!" said one SIMON AND SCHUSTER source last week. "Advance sales are lagging. And there is no title. Without a title it's been difficult to market."

One top source says the situation has not reached a legal concern, rather it is being described as an "annoyance."

The former first lady signed the deal before the 9/11 terror attacks.

One Clinton intimate explains: "In all fairness, she has been preoccupied with serving New York during these challenging times... [But] the writing is wonderful, touching, and will lift Hillary to a new level of respect."

She's not preoccupied with "serving New York;" she is preoccupied with raising dough and lots of it. That is simply the only reason she ran for the senate. She has absolutely no chance for the presidency. My opinion.

So they didn't have to upfront the whole eight million...? The way she spends money, that advance is long gone. Now she's having to call on Bill for funds...

No, we're not surprised, she'd love for the book's release to coincide with the kickoff of her Presidential campaign.

Hahaha! Hey Simon and Schuster, maybe you should give her another 8 million, then the book will be really, really good.

I'm sure you can count on Terry McAuliffe to buy three or four million copies!

Suckers! Put some ice on it!

How about: "It Takes an Incredible, Very Selfish, Valueless Bitch"?

No one will read it in any event, but a good title would still be nice to have.

Suckers?- they knew they would get nothing from her.

Why are they complaining now is the big question,
they could have easily gone along with the dream--
(she's to busy to write,she's been traumitized by 9-11)

Probably didn't get what they really paid Hill/billy for.

This book will be a waste of tree -- it may challenge Al Gore's books for space in the remainder bins.

Where are the tree-huggers when we really need them?

Maybe we need to get a bunch of freepers to climb some trees and refuse to come down until we are promised that the trees won't be used to produce this book. Never happen, though -- many of us have jobs to do or kids to take care of.

There is only one logical reason for this. She signed the book deal before 9-11, the politcal landscape has drastically changed- i.e. the normal Clinton rhetoric will not fly now. Clintons don't write anything unless it serves them politically. My guess she is waiting to see if the climate will change back to a more befitting climate.

I have three words for S&S: CASH ON DELIVERY!

Someone at S&S actually thought a Clinton was going to be true to their word? She has been so occupied with her racist filibustering of Miguel Estrada, and critcizing the President.

...NO MANUSCRIPT, NO TITLE...

.....and in the case of Hillary Clinton, no brains.

Anyone who has closely studied this marxist lunatic as she emotes realizes that she is mindless. The same goes for her "super intelligent" nominal husband. They drone on and on ad nauseum until only the zombie Clintonites hang around for the full dosage of pap.

Simon & Schuster needs to cool its jets. They need to be understanding of how long it takes to rewrite history and the truth and reform them into lies for Hillary!'s own benefit.

Hillary's "to do" list as of Monday.........

Comment on fire at publisher's house(how horrible, and actually wait until the fire is going before commenting)

Kill publishers dog.

Contact publisher and demand another advance. This will never be deemed a credible scenario and thus will work perfectly.

Announce that despite the publishers personal tax problems, you still remain good friends.

Lunch.......Eat the still beating hearts of children(healthy ones)

Circulate a rumor to the publisher's board of directors that regime change is coming.

Hire ghost writer(again) and get her working and figure out how to not pay her a dime (again).

Dye roots, and have horns filed down.

Watch a republican snuff film.

Nap, dream of sheep. Kill them all with demonic claws. Awake refreshed.

Phone Chelsea. Ask her for another younger blood transfusion. Offer to let her boyfriend live or something.

Dine on puppies.

Find crack whore, satisfy self, sleep like a succubus.

You can bet she is feverishly scrabling chapters on:

1. How she has always been a hawk, strong on national defense, especially when it comes to the war on terrorism, Iraq, etc. She will explain her actions at Yale defending the Black Panthers, etc. to fit this new reality.

2. She really argued with Bill about those unforgiveable pardons he handed out at the end of his administration to terrorists, mafioso, etc.

3. In retrospect, those Rose Law Firm billing records weren't really lost. She just forgot about that closet in the living quarters... Gotta write up those details.

4. Oh, yeah, those weren't "boo's" at that Madison Square Garden gathering to celebrate the hero's of 9-11... those were "moose-calls" acknowledging Hillary's defense of the environment and all the moose threatened in the Adirondaks due to acid rain... Yeah... that's the ticket!

The senator of the Empire State has already received a $2.85 million cash advance on her memoirs, from a total deal valued at more than $8 million.

The Clinton's have always had this very strong sense of entitlement ... I'm sure Hillary felt the cash advance was nothing more than another gift from her liberal pals in the publishing business.

Hillary rips off publisher...She can't find her notes and records. Accomplices refuse to cooperate in this crime called authorship.
 
Ghost writer is nowhere to be found..!!
