Amazon reviews never cease to entertain

Take a gander at the 1-star reviews of this book critical of Obama and the 5-star reviews of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's book. Do you see any similarities? How about an almost complete lack of substance to the review, discussion of what the book is actually about and how well it addresses its points?

I can call people liars or brilliant visionaries, too, but that doesn't make it so.

Now to be fair, the reviews written at the other end of the spectrum (on both books) are not exactly full of truthiness, either, but you will find some that actually discuss the content of the books.

I find the disparity... illuminating.

For the record--since this is rumored to be constantly changing:

Pelosi's book: 133 reviews, 1-star (116), 5-star (16)
Obama Nation: 328 reviews, 1-star (171), 5-star (125)

The latter, incidentally, is written by one of the authors of Unfit for Command, the infamous "swiftboat smear" book.
