Troof Week Day One

Alten's book rockets up to #322 on the Amazon Best-Seller List.

That's not going to do it. My estimate is that Shell Game will have to at least hit #1 or #2 temporarily in order to make it into the NY Times Top Ten, because there will undoubtedly be a sharp dropoff in sales as the week goes on. They needed a big start, and it appears that they have not gotten it. Could this be a bigger fiasco than Truther Burn?

Update at 6:00 PM Pacific: It seems to have topped out at #161; as of now it's at #175. Not with a bang, but a whimper.
