Coming Soon To a GOP/NRA/CPAC/RNC Book Bulk-Buying Scam Near You

Long ago the marketplace for political books became garbage heap of unreadable totems of team loyalty, Beltway-approved "seriousness" signifiers, reputation rehabilitation talismans, passports to mainstream media access and just one more way to funnel cash to wingnut monsters.

And, understanding AOC's "bad guy" vid from 2019 about how it's all done, explains the drill.

Mac 10 in the purse?
