Complain to Amazon about obvious DU review of Rick Santorum's Book
http://www.amazon.com/ ^ | 7/9/2005 | me

Posted on 07/09/2005 5:48:23 PM PDT by GeorgiaFreeper

I have a gripe about an obvious DU reviewer of Rick Santorum's new book on amazon. I quote:

"Sen. Santorum's book is saving my marriage., July 9, 2005 Reviewer: Gen. JC Christian, patriot (Tremonton, UT United States) - See all my reviews My life was miserable before I read this book. My wife, Ofjoshua, refused to submit to my patriarchal authority. She disobeyed my directives and flaunted her independence in front of the pastor. Fueled by Cosmo-induced size fantasies, she openly mocked my little soldier's stature by calling me Sir Lackawanger.

I just finished reading a few sections of the book to her, and I think things will be different now. She agrees with the Senator about the proper role of women. Indeed, she said that she wants to quit her job to stay at home. I can't believe it. She was so excited she couldn't stop talking about how she'll have that tall neighbor boy with all the muscles come over and till her garden.

I have Sen. Santorum's book to thank for that. I can't recommend it enough."

Could some of the troops here complain about the review and post some counter reviews? You can find the book by searching on:

It Takes a Family : Conservatism and the Common Good by Rick Santorum

I know, but this one bugged me. Think it of a poll that needs to be freep-ed.

I think it's kind of humorous.

Sir Lackawanger

LOL - 3 points for humor. Y'all put too much stock in Amazon's power.

Who cares if some leftie wants to make a fool of himself and Amazon is dumb enough to print it?

Who cares about the review. Looks like I'm a victim of identity theft!

You're also almost as excitable as Andrew Sullivan. I mean, who cares about an Amazon book review?

The so-called review says a lot more about the reviewer than Santorum's book. Plus, I rather believe the reviewer never actually read the book, just assumed they knew what was in it.

Andrew who? Never heard of him until I googled his name after your post.

As far as who cares? I don't know, probably the same people who like to freep polls.

I don't care much about the review...What I find curious is that these congresscreeps are paid full time to represent me, but they have all this free time to write books...

So I have to wonder, did this freeloader feel he had a message that he just had to get to the people (for some small change, of course), or did he just chose the wrong career???</p>

He's a loser ala Operation Yellow Elephant. They plan ops in Republican settings to get them to enlist in the military...meanwhile they're not either. This guy holds nothing sacred (obvious from his name).

Stabbed in the back

My fellow cadremen and cadrenotmen from the Red Guard of the Glorious Conservative Christian Cultural Revolution are freeping my Amazon review of Sen. Santorum's book. I can't tell you haw betrayed I feel. Without the Free Republic, I have no mental template for my thoughts.

Me too. I read his other reviews on Amazon and none are as good, though.

I wrote a pretty good (IMHO) review of Babs Ehrenreich's rag, Nickeled and Dimed, and it was denied. No explanation was given, tho I was a bit sarcastic in my delivery on some of the more salient points regarding Bab's capacity for denial and her upper crust background's effect on making her hopelessly out of touch with the average min wage worker. If mine wasnt printed, this one shouldnt be allowed to stand at all...JFK

I always get a kick out of those bozos who think those who agree with the war should join.

How about those that don't agree get cutoff from all government benefits, to include in-state tuition?

One's about as ridiculous as the other.

Oh boo hoo. You just have your panties in a wad since your little charade was discovered. I had no problem with the reviewers who disagreed with the book and stated it honestly. The fake positive review with insulting language was over the top. Evidently Amazon agreed even though they are usually left-leaning.

He was a very poor troll. Even admitted to it right away.

I prefer NOT to be like the libs and encourage censorship. If they have more people than FreeRepublic. That's our fault. The truth is they don't. Freepers should stop preaching to the choir as much and go out there and GET EM! I come here to learn but I take the battle to Yahoo Chats and Usenet.
