“Do you know who I am?” …Apparently he didn’t, Sparky.
Apparently David Corn caused quite the scene today in a Capitol Hill Barnes & Noble when his new book (an apologetic for the President*) was not prominently displayed so that the People would know that today was the day that Corn’s absolutely vital work of political literature had come out… God, I love DC, in that special I-actually-loathe-it-and-yearn-for-New-Jersey sort of way.
Anyway. FishbowlDC buried the lede: somebody actually paid David Corn money to write several hundred pages of nonsense trying to convince Democrats that President Obama has had an effective first term. This, in an era where liberals are looking up the details on do-it-yourself trepanning, on the off chance that it might actually dull the pain and shame of having to vote for that guy again.
PS: What’s that? Oh, I don’t have a book to my name, myself. Been a little busy doing my humble best to help elect Republican Senators, governors, Congressmen, and a Virginia county school board member (possibly proudest of that one, really). I also don’t make scenes in public places, so I figure that in this particular case it’s all a bit of a wash anyway.
PPS: I’ve decided to simply RedHot this. We have a limited – and valuable – amount of space on the front page of RedState, after all.
*I was going to link to it, but then I thought: people would be better off reading Sean Trende’s The Lost Majority: Why the Future of Government Is Up for Grabs – and Who Will Take It. If for no other reason than the fact that Sean’s book will still be relevant after January 2013.
