Will Kerry's supporters stop at nothing?
The cover of the new anti-Kerry book, Unfit for Command, set to hit shelves soon, has been given an alternative, pro-Kerry cover at the Barnes & Noble online store. The title of the book has been changed to Fit for Command, and the cover image has been changed from a close-up of a finger-pointing Kerry to a picture of Kerry in uniform with other Vietnam veterans. (The book currently sits at #7 on the Barnes & Noble Top 100 and at #2 on Amazon.)
The book, which challenges the "war hero" status of John Kerry's four months in Vietnam, was a part of a major firestorm last week as portions of the book were first revealed by The Drudge Report and a new anti-Kerry advertisement from the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth -- a "527" group of which the author of Unfit, John O'Neill, is a member -- was first reported by Human Events Online. Following the Human Events exclusive, a letter from DNC and Kerry lawyers to various TV stations attempting to intimidate them into blocking the ad from the airwaves was also exclusively revealed by Human Events Online.
Though no information on the source of the cover change has been found, the latest tactic from the pro-Kerry crowd -- whether from a computer hacker or an employee of Barnes & Noble -- can hardly be considered surprising.

That's funny. Some Kerry supporter might order the book and change their vote.
Wow! They're not kidding.
Rather sad that this is the best they could do.
Isn't that grounds for a lawsuit?
How can they get away with this?
i assumed this was a joke
If you could find who to sue. I doubt that B&N did this officially.
B&N must by now be aware of the error....why haven't they pulled the photo yet?
Image appears to be hosted on Akamai.net.
The Kerry Spot reported this morning that Amazon had the wrong cover of the wrong book.
Know who your enemy is *bump*
God, liberal hackers are stupid. All this will do is draw traffic to a website where people can order the darn book.
Thanks for the 'heads up'. Now I know where I WON'T be buying my copy. Are there any national book store chains that aren't flaming lefties?
Get this to the Kerry spot and to Drudge...
this is stunning!! unbelievable!! wow!!
