They say a picture is worth a thousand words—but how many words is a political party that just had one of the most devastating losses in U.S. history worth? The answer is, apparently, zero. Zero words.
That's at least according to Michael J. Knowles, managing editor for conservative site Daily Wire, whose troll of a book went viral Thursday and quickly became the No. 1 best seller on Amazon.
Purported to be a "comprehensive guide" for all the "Reasons to Vote for Democrats," the book instead has a word count equal to the number of times Hillary Clinton has been elected president of the United States.
Click through Twitter reactions to blank book 'Reasons to Vote for Democrats':
The book is described as the "most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date," but features roughly 260 blank pages with only the book's title printed atop each.
"If Democrats copied and pasted the contents of this book into their national platform they could become unstoppable," read one user review.

"Exhaustive, yet concise, treatment of the reasons to vote for Democrats. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it as a teaching tool for any potential voter. This book is truly unparalleled," read another.
The author appeared on FOX News Thursday and said, "It took a very long time to research this 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."
Democrats seemingly responded to the joke by publishing their own book titled "Reasons To Vote For Republicans: A Captivating Interpretation," basically copying what the conservative managing editor did. Hilarious.
