David Corn Throws A Tizzy Fit
Media Bistro ^ | 3/20/2012 | Betsy Rothstein

MSNBC Contributor and Mother Jones’ Washington Bureau Chief David Corn apparently got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.

He was spotted in the Barnes & Noble at Union Station throwing a fit because his new book — his fifth — fitting called Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party out today didn’t have its own display. He was overheard yelling at the manager that “every paper in America” was going to be talking about his book today and yet nobody could find it there.

Hope the manager grabbed him by the seat of his pants and his neck and summarily threw the bum out.

Talk to your publisher #ick weed. It is their job to make sure your A$$ kissing book gets the attention it deserves. Oh wait, apparently it did.

And....I can assure you, Mr. David Corn, your book will not be a best seller, no matter how many book displays are fashioned. Flop is a more accurate description of your failed tome!!!

I loved the comment “what’s a paper”.
Really David who?

Sounds like his name should be Dick instead of David.

I like the way MSNBC put a Corn in there for texture.

Apologies to Cheech & Chong.

If you pick the Corn out of that book, what’s left?

Apologies to my D.I.

David Corn is a screaming queen. So it’s normal operating procedure for him to throw a hissy fit.

This will not be a best seller any more than OWN and Current-TV are rocking the cable ratings

Space in all retail is bought ans sold

If he is paying for the display he has a beef

My guess his publisher did not pay because libtards books do not sell

David Corn? Never heard of him—why would he think “every paper in America” was going to be talking about some book he wrote? Was this guy some sort of “flash-in-the-pan” sometime in the past?

There are 3 possible solutions to his problem....a diaper change, a bottle, or a dose of Mylicon.

Never heard of this jerk, but before reading the previous posts I had guessed that he was a sodomite......There are 3 possible solutions to his problem....a diaper change, a bottle, or a dose of Mylicon.
