Miki Mouth Stars In “Steamroll Willies”

Contrary To All Appearances, Miki Really Wasn't In The Driver's Seat

Well, just when I was starting to feel sorry for frustrated Birther author, Miki “The Mad Hawaiian” Booth, she goes and pulls this stunt. Which is kind of creepy. First, what Miki said:

Miki Booth

Bookstore Goes DARK After Rejecting My Book – Chapters Bookstore in Miami, OK got barraged with phone calls and emails after they chose NOT TO CARRY my book, “Memoirs of a Community Organizer from Hawai’i” and gave no reason for the rejection. The following is the email exchange leading up to the bookstore “closing” for inventory until Tuesday:

Jessie, You didn’t give me the option to discuss your reasons for deciding not to carry my book. I am a local resident and it stands to reason someone from the community who has a national following would have a place in the only bookstore of note in the area. The only reason I came in to talk about a book signing was because several area residents suggested it.

Call it what you want. You decided for whatever reason that you don’t want to be associated with my book. I call that a ban. Anyone interested in buying my book should not bother checking with my local bookstore? Furthermore, when you were asked by customers why your bookstore didn’t carry George W. Bush’s memoir “Decision Points” you responded that you “didn’t want to offend your customers,” because you have a “certain customer base.” I see. Well, enjoy your ever dwindling base. Real Americans are hungry for the truth. We are done with liberal spin.

Sincerely
Miki Booth

Subject: [mikibooth.com] Please consider your tactics

Ms. Booth, I have received several harassing phone calls that are saying our book store has “banned” your book. As you remember from our conversation, I said it was a book we decided not to carry, a decision we hold the right to make. Please keep in mind you’re not the only author, and yours is not the only book, that we have chosen to not carry. If we were to receive sincere calls from individuals interested in purchasing your book, we would be more than happy to reopen the topic for discussion and reconsider our decision. However, when the harsh and incorrect word “banned” is used, and either directly or indirectly you incite your peers to call us and throw falsehoods in our direction, we are in no way motivated to review what could be a flawed decision. Again, we would be open to discuss this in a calm and logical manner. Any other tactics are unwarranted, unappreciated and not affective. Thank you for your time.

Well, if the bookstore owner is expecting “calm and logical” from a Birther, boy is he or she in for a big shock!!! This kind of stuff is why people think that Birthers are nuts. What kind of mind is it, that thinks it is appropriate to intimidate people into carrying your book??? What’s next, a guy shows up in a nice suit and makes the bookstore owner an offer she can’t refuse???

I suggest Ms. Booth chooses as her next  literary endeavor “Gorilla Marketing: How NOT To Sell Your Book

Thanks to Milo Milosevich at Orly’s World for posting this!!! If you want to visit Miki Booth’s website, here is a link:

Note 1. Steamroll Willies.  This is a play on a Mickey Mouse cartoon called Steamboat Willy. To steamroll somebody means:

To overwhelm or suppress ruthlessly; crush.

bring to a specified state by overwhelming force or pressure; “The Senator steamrollered the bill to defeat.”

overwhelm by using great force; “steamroller the opposition”

and willies means “A strong feeling of nervous discomfort.”, or as expounded on by the Urban Dictionary:

Like ‘The Creeps’, The Willies is a feeling that one gets when he/she gets especially nervous. The Willies is not caused by actual fear, but the thought that something scary could happen in the near future. Too, unsettling actions/individuals can bring about The Willies.

Rick: See that guy over there in the gray fedora? He’s starting to give me The Willies.

Gene: Yeah, I see where you’re coming from. Throughout the show, a few other friends came up to me to express how creepy he is.

Note 2. Mickey Mouse.  After starring in Steamboat Willie  in 1928, Mickey went on to star in many films, including Mickey’s Steamroller in 1934. Like Jackie Chan, Mickey performed his own stunts. Here is a black and white version of the classic film:


Dear Miki Booth – TMI Is NOT Your Friend!!!

In A Happier Time, Being A Space Cadet Was A Good Thing

Dear Miki,

How are you? Fine I hope. I was reading your letter about your book, and I have some unsolicited advice for you. Let me give you an analogy.  Suppose for a moment you are the editor, and it is your money that will be used to publish books. Then suppose that someone writes you a letter which says:

Dear Editor,

My book,  How To Make Safe 25% Returns Per Year On Your Stock Market Picks, has received outstanding reviews from members of  The Young Investors Club of New York.  I have been called “The Warren Buffet of Greater Sandusky” in a newspaper article for developing this safe and sure-fire method to earn these high returns.

Now so far, so good, right? The writer has your attention and you are interested.  Heck, you’re even thinking about hocking your jewelry so you can invest. Now for paragraph 2:

I was taught this method by aliens from the Galaxy, Grokk 7, located 3,000 light years from Earth. I was abducted from the weekly Moon Landing Deniers meeting  (of which I am the local coordinator) and taken to the Uranus Space Base, where I was probed every which way but loose.  Afterward, while sharing a drink, one of the Aliens, named Brizzibbit, showed me how to use superior Alien technology to psychically forecast moves in the Stock Market.

Now, somewhere in paragraph 2, I am betting the writer lost you. Probably before you could get to the Uranus Space Base. The reason is that the writer revealed herself to be a crank. Because only cranks believe stuff like this. This is a classic example of TMIToo Much Information.

This is probably why your book is not doing so well. Now, let’s look at your letter.

Dear Editor,

My book, Memoirs of a Community Organizer from Hawai’i, debuted on Thursday, February 9 at CPAC the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, DC, to outstanding reviews. My work is the product of three years of investigating and documenting corruption and cover-up of Obama’s illegal election and the lengths his handlers have gone through to keep the truth from seeing the light of day. Obama has stated that his administration would be the most transparent in history but it should be clear by now to everyone that transparency was never his intention.

Now, up to this point  conservatives are probably salivating and waiting to read the juicy details about  Obama’s crimes against Humanity. But now you are about to lose them.  Here is your foray into the world of TMI, with BOLDED notes by me, so that you can gauge the degree to which you are chasing away your audience,  in comparison with the example above.

Obama has all the money and power in the world to silence people like me who challenge his eligibility [I was taught this method by aliens] to serve as President and Commander in Chief of the American Army as mandated by Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the Constitution. The Democrat Socialist Party and the ruling elite may have succeeded in duping Americans the first time around claiming that Obama is a natural born Citizen [from the Galaxy, Grokk 7, located 3,000 light years from Earth.] but it won’t work for them again if the voices of the ‘silent majority’ are allowed to be heard.

The requirement and term, “Natural born Citizen[I was abducted from the weekly Moon Landing Deniers meeting] apply only to the two highest positions in our federal government. The reason is simply to ensure no outside or foreign interest would breach our national sovereignty and security. “Natural born Citizen[(of which I am the local coordinator)] and “native born[ and taken to the Uranus Space Base, ] are not the same kind of citizen. [where I was probed every which way but loose.] Obama, Sr., was a British national in the colony of Kenya [Afterward, while sharing a drink, one of the Aliens, named Brizzibbit, ] when Obama was born so he was not and can never be a natural born Citizen [showed me how to use superior Alien technology] and is illegally occupying the White House.[to  psychically forecast moves in the Stock Market. ]

Left-wing enablers continue to cover up the truth. Why just today the only bookstore in my area, Chapters in Miami, OK, owned by Ann Neal, has just banned my book.

You see, the plain fact is that outside of the Birther Echo Chambers, people just think Birthers are crazy.  Particularly people who are smart enough to be editors. Birther legal theories don’t make any sense, Birther cases get thrown out of the courts left and right, and frankly, you pretty much have to a 4+ rolling conspiracy theorist to believe the Birther stuff.

As a practical matter, I would at least remove all the Birther references from you letter. I am not saying this to be mean to you. Writing a book is something to be very proud of.  But, I hope you start thinking about these issues, and maybe start spending more time with sane people who do not believe this delusional Birther nonsense.  It will give you a better perspective on Reality.

Good luck,
