Eden Prairie GOP candidate Sheila Kihne once wrote cringe-worthy book about dating [VIDEO]

Yesterday, we told you about Republican House candidate Sheila Kihne's controversial, ultra-right blogging. Today we bring you something even more interesting.

Kihne's campaign website notes that while she's currently a full-time mom, the Eden Prairie resident once was "Co-Author of a Book on Dating and Courtship, [and] appeared on The TODAY Show and Fox News Channel." And lemme tell you, what a book it is!

Kihne's book -- co-written with her sister, Mary Corbett -- is entitled, The List: 7 Ways to Tell If He's Going to Marry You--in 30 Days or Less! (Kihne, for her part, has been married to her husband Todd for 18 years, according to her campaign website.)

The "About the Author" section on the book's Amazon page describes Kihne and Corbett as "fiery sisters who share a passion for telling other people what to do" -- an eerily appropriate description in light of Kihne's political convictions, which include the belief that any child over 12 whose family is on welfare should get a job, and that any family on welfare should be barred from owning a computer until they can get by without assistance. (Check out the link in the first paragraph of this post for more on that.)

Here's the book's Amazon synopsis (unedited):
The List puts single men everywhere on notice: Get it together in 30 days or you're out. The concept is delightfully simple - when a man meets "the one", he will take 7 swift actions to secure her love forever: He'll make the first move He'll contact her in 24 to 48 hours to set up a first date He'll make the first date easy and fun He'll contact her within 24 hours of the first date to set up another date He'll talk to her every day and spend all his free time with her He'll demonstrate unconditional loyalty He'll talk about marrying her in concrete terms and he proposes - or lets her know that he's going to propose With The List, women can get the relationship they've always dreamed of - without playing hard to get, putting on an act, or - most important - wasting any more time.
Woof!

We tried to get the book from the Minneapolis Central Library, but they don't have it. You can buy it for the whopping price of one cent on Amazon, but really, who needs to read it when you can blog about reader comments like the ones below instead?

On Amazon, a certain DermaDocVM gives the book a five-star rating and writes, "With a book like this available, we single women don't have to rely on sheer luck in meeting a true Mr. Right."

"I know I sound harsh, but there are too many of us 'servicing men' (like an earlier post succintly mentioned) and boosting their egos until that man meets the woman of their dreams," Derma continues. "Despite many misinterpretations, this book is NOT about getting a guy to marry you within 1 month because of loudly ticking biological clocks."

Another reviewer, Dr. Bobby H. Wang, also gives the book five stars and writes, "I suspect most boys hate this book; until they have daughters of their own."

"Boys would much rather string their sex partners along, and enjoy free milk," he continues, grossly.

As Kihne mentions on her website, while publicizing the book, she and her sister appeared on the Today show. Click to page two for the video -- trust us, you don't want to miss it!

If Kihne thinks women can never make a bad first impression she's completely unfamiliar with her fellow female Republican fan base. Those women are NUTS.

Who do you work for Al Franken? This publication is always so one sided. How about a story on something that matters.

This is actually very helpful information.  Along with the news of her extremist blogging, it paints a very clear picture of who this person is. Bear in mind she is running for a responsible elective office.

This is a person living in a world that is not the way she wishes it were.  That should be familiar to all of us.  However, unlike most of us, this woman has decided that the world should be the way she wishes it were, and since it's not, the world is wrong and she is right and she intends to behave accordingly.

I suppose some might find that inspiring, in the same way people for centuries have loved "Don Quixote."  Except Don Quixote wasn't running for elective office, and wasn't trying to impose his imaginary view of the world on everyone else.

This woman is not crazy, not delusional.  She intends that everyone else in the world is wrong and needs to change to match her pre-conceived notions, conceived however she came up with them.  People like this are extremely dangerous. They usually undo themselves before they manage to do great harm, but the history books are full of those who get themselves into positions of power before they do undo themselves, and when that happens, we have all the great catastrophes with which we're all familiar.

That's important news and needs to be publicized.

Based on comments of people who actually have read the book. Plus, it isn't like they're hiding the fact that they (the blog's author) haven't read it, when they plainly admit as much.

He is reporting the facts that people might want to know before they vote...how is this bad? He isn't mentioning them in a good light, he's pointing out how flawed their way of thinking is. That doesn't make them stronger, it exposes their idiocy to a wider range of people.

It's funny cos she's a Republican. Gosh the GOP is dumb. Democrats would never do anything so ridiculous. No biased reporting here, nope.

While I do not agree with her views, why do you give this woman and Michelle Bachmann so much press and time? The more you mention her and MB, the more they gain strength and supporters. Same with any newspaper or media outlet.

Exposing Republican stupidity matters. And it's a full-time job.

Actually, the book is titled "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot."  In it, Franken (when he was still a comedy writer) did fact-checking and research on things Limbaugh said and published.  Franken did not challenge Limbaugh's ideology; just what Limbaugh claimed were facts.  And it was a gruesome examination.

Because this is a culturally liberal newspaper that opportunistically gives its readers what they them what they want: stories about "crazy" conservatives to gossip about. They can't get enough. It's too easy. Liberals love a good distraction from their own morally bankrupt party.

@androolarson Stupid people like you are why Republicans keep nominating stupid mentally ill people like Sheila Kihne.   It's hilarious you think this is somehow the DFL's fault.  Whiny loser.
