Gore currently holds the record for book sales at an author event at the popular Book Passage bookstore in Corte Madera, CA.
However, on Sunday, March 28, 2010, Mathison will refuse to leave the bookstore until he breaks Gore's record.
"If George Bush could beat him, so can I," declared a confident Mathison, "and I won't need to get the Supreme Court involved."
You don't need to be in California to help - you can buy the book from Be The Media or through the button below. Each book will be personally autographed by David, and bulk orders are certainly welcome:
Contributing donors can also win lunch with the author, take a photo with a life-size Al Gore, or discuss the invention of the Internet.
Diehard Be The Media activists and special guests are planning to rally from noon-4pm outside the bookstore. It is not yet certain if Gore supporters will picket to prevent the record from being broken.
The event will be
streamed live here (see below), so supporters from across the
globe can cheer Mathison on and support his cause.
He promises to eat, drink, sleep, talk, and filibuster until he beats Gore.
"Once Gore sees me closing in on the record," Mathison says, "I'm sure he'll concede."
