Resilience by Elizabeth Edwards vs. a Bestseller
A new book by Elizabeth Edwards -- wife of disgraced putz John Edwards -- currently has 488 mentions in the media, according to Google News.
While a new book by Mark Levin, which has sold over a million copies in five weeks -- and has dominated the New York Times bestseller list with successive #1 rankings -- can't get the attention of a single major media outlet.
There's a reason for the disparity.
Levin's book lays out the history of the Republic, from men who inspired the Framers -- like Cicero and John Locke -- to the turmoil of the founding itself. His argument advocates defending the Constitution against Statism; that is, the central planners who relentlessly press forward with visions of an unattainable Utopia.
