OBAMA BOOK GOES ON THE PRESSES
CHICAGO COLUMNIST ANDY MARTIN ANNOUNCES HIS NEW BOOK, OBAMA: THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK, HAS STARTED PRINTING
(CHICAGO)[July 11, 2008] Legendary Chicago Internet columnist and muckraker Andy Martin will hold a news conference Thursday, July 10th to announce that his new book on Senator Barack Obama is on the presses. Based on pre-publication sales, the book is already an international bestseller.
“We are so excited,” Martin will state. “They are doing an initial print run for review copies to book reviews, media, etc. In a few days they are going to start printing truckloads, and the publisher will be shipping copies to pre-pub orders. The shipping date is estimated to be July 25th.
“I have over forty years of experience in the cesspools of Illinois politics. I worked for an Illinois senator, knew several of them personally, have been in and out of Washington for decades and was the first writer to start questioning Barack Obama’s resume and life story. No other writer can match my background. No other author can match my book.
“I am the only political columnist who ‘adopted’ Hillary Clinton as a candidate during the dark days of February. In Europe, I’m not known as a political author. Rather, I was the courageous and confrontational Baghdad bureau chief who took on Paul Bremer, and earned a place on my second presidential enemies list (Nixon, Bush). I spoke truth to power in Baghdad, and when I returned to Chicago I began to speak the truth about Barack Obama. Media bias is overwhelmingly in Obama’s favor so I am always swimming upstream with both my facts and opinions.
“‛The Mask’ is a compilation of my original columns combined with a series of startling new essays on every aspect of Obama’s life. Some of my comments are short and tart, some sharp and long, others derisory. The new material is sure to be controversial. None of it has been published anywhere before. My original news conference about Obama in 2004 has become one of the most Googled items on the Internet. The new book has already exceeded our expectations.
“Obama has relentlessly tried to stop me. He has thrown his recent ‘Manchurian Surrogate,’ Danielle Allen, into the fray. But we keep fighting back, with the truth abut Barry O. Obama is a political version of Budd Schulberg’s Sammy Glick. He is a crass opportunist who has thrown everybody under the bus in his rise to power. And if people are foolish enough to elect Obama, he’s going to throw America under the bus as well,” Martin states.
“My book catalogs Obama’s operations through the nomination victory last month. Now he has reversed himself, moving from the extreme left to ‘who knows where?’ Next week we are going to begin a medley of new columns on Obama’s mendacity. And we are already working on the second book. ‘Barry O’ is good copy.
“People in Chicago do not want to hear the truth. I love it. They are in deep denial. They are so desperate for a ‘president.’ As we Episcopalians like to remark, ‘Be careful what you pray for; your prayers may be answered.’ Putting a Daley Machine stooge in the White House is not my idea of ‘change’ or ‘hope.’ And tomorrow, Friday, I will be out on the beat, in the sewers of Chicago politics, digging deeper for the real ‘Obama Story.’ There is much more to come.”
