Blank 'Reason To Vote For Democrats' Book Tops Charts

| by Michael Doherty

A new book has appeared on Amazon's best-seller list, but the content is not what you might expect.

"Reasons to Vote for Democrats," by Michael J. Knowles has reached the top of Amazon's best-seller list after its Feb. 8 publication, with glowing reviews from customers. But all the pages of the book are blank, The Washington Post reports.

Created as a satirical statement against the Democratic Party, the book's description calls it the "most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date," and "a political treatise sure to stand the test of time."

Knowles, the managing editor of conservative website Daily Wire, appeared on Fox News show "Fox & Friends" to discuss the book. "What's really great about this book, you can go cover-to-cover in about 15, 20 seconds," said Knowles.

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

Knowles added that "it took a very long time to research" the book.

"I’ve been observing the Democratic Party for at least 10 years now and when I observed their record and reasons to vote for them -- on reasons of economics or foreign policy or homeland security or civil rights and so on -- I realized it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank," he said.

"When I started researching the book and going through this exhaustive study process, at first I turned to the 2012 Democratic National Convention, and it turned out they were deciding whether or not to include God in their party platform," he said.

"And the Democrats booed God. That’s not good. So I decided probably if I’m going to make a good case to vote for Democrats, probably just leave that chapter blank."

The book includes sections such as "Foreign Policy," "Homeland Security," and "Civil Rights," all of which are blank.

"Thorough," reads a quote by Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro placed on the book's cover.

Customer reviews on Amazon's page for the book seemed to be in on the joke. "If Democrats copied and pasted the contents of this book into their national platform they could become unstoppable," wrote on reviewer who gave the book five stars.

"Exhaustive, yet concise, treatment of the reasons to vote for Democrats," wrote another user, who recommended the book to "any potential voter."

A similar book filled with blank pages, "Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect & Admiration" by David King, appeared on Amazon in November, expressing the same satirical idea but for anti-Trump voters, CNN reports.
