This is from an e-mail posted on The Corner:
Wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and to let you know my wife gave me a copy of Rich Lowry’s book for Christmas…she says she saw me rearranging the book display at our local Waldenbooks – replacing all of the Franken tomes with Legacy. She then thought, correctly, that I should have one in my collection.
I don’t care if this person is a conservative who thinks Al Franken is full of it. He’s still obnoxious and rude. If I saw this guy doing his own version of “Hey, I work in a bookstore too” I would have done the good bookseller thing of asking if he needed any help while thinking, “It’s people like you that give conservatives a bad name.”
This is even worse than a female customer who was upset a stack of Bill O’Reilly books were right next to Michael Moore’s Dude, Where’s My Country? Some people, whatever their ideology, get so upset and threatened at the mere existence of an opposing opinion. Why they even bother to turn on a tv or radio, open a newspaper, read a website, or even step out their front door is beyond me.
