Editorial Reviews

Review

This collection of quotes - all from verified sources - puts the lie to Hillary's ""I feel your pain"" public persona.

Dick Morris, one of the most prolific writers on the Clintons, is providing the forward.

Goal is to make this title 2006's ""Don't Think of an Elephant.""

Marketing support for I've Always Been A Yankees Fan will include radio/TV appearances. In-store co-op marketing funds are available.

Google Adwords, Overture and Amazon campaigns; blogger campaign designed to fan the ongoing controversy over Hillary's suitability for the Presidency. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

"What I would like in an ideal world, is for people to get to know Hillary." -- Lisa Caputo, Hillary Clinton’s former press secretary

Mission accomplished! From World Ahead Publishing -- the company that brought you Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed! -- comes this indispensable addition to the Hillary oeuvre. As Dick Morris writes in the foreword: "This wonderful little book will give you all the ammunition you need to hold up your end of the argument and make sure that Hillary's quotes and lies are not forgotten but come back to haunt her."

Using extensive, attributed sources, editor Tom Kuiper has assembled the biggest collection of Hillary quotes ever, putting them into witty, sometimes illustrated and always hilarious context.

Hillary on Living in Arkansas:

"I had never before lived in a place so small, so friendly and Southern, and I loved it. I went to Arkansas Razorback football games and learned to call the hogs."

"This is the kind of s*** I have to put up with." (To a friend after a Clinton supporter gave her a pair of Arkansas Razorback earrings.)

Hillary on the Secret Service:

"[We] have nothing but praise for their courage, integrity and professionalism, and we feel lucky to remain friends with the many agents who protected us."

"If you want to remain on this detail, get your a** over here and grab those bags." (To an agent who wanted to keep his hands free in case of a security threat.)

Hillary on Money:

"Too many people have made too much money." (Describing the greedy people in the health care industry.)

"I’m pleased that the Senate Ethics Committee has found that my agreement with Simon & Schuster fully complies with Senate Ethics rules." (Discussing her $8 million book deal.)

From health care to Oval Office hijinks, from Watergate to Whitewater, we’ve got Hillary dead to rights in a book that humorously but pitilessly underscores her hypocrisy, flip-flops and endless pandering -- and one that could have a major impact on her Presidential aspirations."


More About the Author

Yankees Fan is my first book. I'm originally from a small town in Iowa, (Sibley), but have also lived in upstate New York, (pre-Hillary thank goodness), South Florida, and in Des Moines, IA. I was the researcher behind the popular "Deck of Hillary" playing cards, one of NewsMax.com's most popular products. My day job is an employment paralegal for a large corporation in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I am a long-time Democrat and was looking forward to Hillary's run for the Presidency in 2008. This book was certainly interesting and entertaining, but it also raised a valid concern that perhaps Hillary's character isn't what she portray's it to be.

By putting a book together of this magnitude, Author Tom Kuiper is definitely opening up Hillary's "can of worms." There will be many who definitely do not want this book to be read.

I would encourage each person to read this charming book of quotes compiled by many different and well-researched sources and make their own decision.

I will bet you will be laughing out-loud within the first 15 minutes of reading the book (admit it those of you who read it, you did it too!)

This is a definite must-have book.

Format: Paperback
When Tom Kuiper said on CNN "since I wasn't there, I can't verify that it's 100 percent true," he was simply stating the obvious.

Trying to dismiss this book because the author wasn't "there" is pure nonsense.

Every historian writes about events that he/she was not present at.

Every courtroom jury is expected to judge defendants based on information that they have no way of verifying.

People accept sports scores all the time by just reading news reports of games that they never attended or even watched on television.

The critics of this book weren't "there" either. They are relying on the credibility of their sources, the same way Kuiper is relying on his. The two approaches are identical.

Is Kuiper's utterance all that significant?

Author James Frey had been forced to admit publicly that his best-selling memoirs "A Million Little Pieces" and "My Friend Leonard" were largely fabricated even though they were sold as non-fiction.

Yet look at these two reviews found in Amazon.com:

"A Million Little Pieces" -

Reviewer: onepolishgirl April 8, 2006

"Million Little Pieces was one fantastic novel. It doesn't matter to me one bit that it's all or half fiction."

"My Friend Leonard" -

Reviewer: J. Cameron-Smith April 24, 2006

"I have just finished reading 'My Friend Leonard'. The debate about the balance between true and not true, fact and fiction is unimportant to me."

In that light, there should be no problem for people who want to read Kuiper's book.

This book highlights why Hillary Clinton cannot be trusted with the highest office in the land. She is a role model for dishonesty, arrogance, opportunism, and nastiness.

This is book that had to be written and it is one that you have to read. Anyone who cares at all about politics and knowing the true character of a potential presidential candidate has to be concerned about Hillary Clinton's true character. This book speaks volumes as to her character--morals, honesty, truthfulness, etc. It is very well documented as to the source of each quote and it is hard to argue with the evidence.

81 of 102 people found the following review helpful By Alejandra Vernon HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 9, 2006
Format: Paperback
Thomas Kuiper has put together this collection of Hillary Clinton's opinions on a wide range of topics, culled from many sources, including her own autobiography "Living History," as well as President Clinton's "My Life." Many of the "tell all" books that came out during the Clinton years in the White House, like FBI Agent Gary Aldrich's "Unlimited Access" provide material, and Kuiper Adds his own explanation after each quote, with the why and where Mrs. Clinton made these (sometimes conflicting) comments.

A good way of knowing the stuff someone is made of, is to observe how they behave towards those people who are subservient to them, and in this regard, Mrs. Clinton shows despicable character. Even if only a small percentage of the examples cited are true, her appalling crassness and demeaning treatment of those in menial positions, always laced with trashy profanity, will put many off electing her on a national scale. One would think that a woman of Mrs. Clinton's intelligence would have a more creative way of expressing herself than the constant use of the "F" word.

Along with a plethora of rather unattractive photos of Mrs. Clinton, "I've Always Been a Yankees Fan" has a foreword by Dick Morris, the one-time advisor and friend of President and Mrs. Clinton, who now profits from "spilling the beans," and there are plenty of beans for a fine stew. Perhaps it's his thorny retribution for a Clinton remark that he had the "people skills of a porcupine."

"I've Always Been a Yankees Fan" is a quick read and may be a handy little book should Mrs. Clinton decide to run for the most important job in the world, as it is informative about many of her policy positions, and revealing of her character.

This was a great read, although I am sure you could create something similar on any politician.

Some of the quotes are very credible and very disturbing.

Although the author came off a little mean it's still a fun read.

Format: Paperback
There is no better way to assess the true character of a person than by the way they act when the spotlight is not focused on them. Someone like Hillary, who has strived all her life for power and attention, treats everyone around her like "trained pigs" as she says in the book. This book presents only her words as reported by a large variety of sources, many liberal, some by people who had to endure her because they were paid to do so. This book is not the opinion of someone who, for their own political objectives, wants to paint her as something other than what she really is. This is really her, in her own words and actions.

My wife has had occasion to be around Hillary at the Senate and when the cameras are pointed elsewhere, everyone who does not possess a great deal of political power is treated like so much pocket lint.
