Hillary Clinton’s book selling well, but where’s the mad rush? (It's not selling well, it's a flop)
Washington Post ^ | 6/11/14 | JULIEANN MCKELLOGG

Posted on 06/12/2014 6:53:06 AM PDT by jimbo123

If there was enthusiasm for the release of Hillary Clinton’s highly anticipated memoir, it was missing Tuesday at one D.C. bookstore. No one was lining up outside. No one was fighting over the last copy (there still are copies left!). And few seemed interested in reading anything beyond online reviews and summaries.

Our PostTV team and opinion columnist Alexandra Petri ventured to Kramerbooks in the heart of D.C.’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, where they found that even Clinton supporters were not interested in buying the former secretary of state’s “Hard Choices.”

Luckily for Clinton, book sales seem to tell a different story. As of Wednesday morning, Kramerbooks had sold 24 of its 160 copies. Apparently, we missed those buyers during our nearly three-hour visit to the store.

Selling well = we pushed out a crapload of copies to booksellers, where they are gathering dust.

As long as the American people “think” it is selling well, well, that’s all that matters in a “democracy”.

People will rarely spend their hard earned money on a pile of BS and LIES. BS and LIES are the total story of her life from college days right up until now.

I was at my local Ralphs Grocery store today and noticed that they had set up a table near the checkout area with a large display of Hillary's book.

The store usually displays the books near the back of the store. And the conservative books are always stuck in the most inconvenient part of the book rack.

No one cares what the fat, ugly, lying slut has to say.

Are the Unions deserting the ‘lady in waiting’ too? They usually buy up millions of copies if for no other reason than to hype their preferred candidate.

When I last looked at the book on Amazon it was classified under 3 narrow categories as opposed to “Number xx in non-fiction.” Categories like “#1 in sanitized personal recollections by old white political appointees.”

“Hillary never hit #1 on Amazon and now she’s dropped to #3 behind the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse: Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 10 Days!”

That is surprising. I bet her book is a more effective purgative than the smoothies.

If you truly want to read a beautiful non-fiction story, check out The Waiting by Cathy LaGrow. Cathy’s grandmother, Minka Disbrow, now 102-years-old, was raped in 1928 when she was 16. She was forced to give up her baby for adoption. She wrote letters to the adoption agency for years. They were reunited SEVENTY SEVEN years later. While being reunited she learned that her grandson, Mark Lee, had become a NASA astronaut and flew four space missions. Another grandson was a West Point grad.

More info about the book is at www.thewaitingbook.com.

24 out of 160 copies===

That is about 15%. That matches the effectiveness of both of the Clintons—about 15%.

Our local Costco has several cases of this book prominently displayed in their book section.

Either someone is meticulous about restocking or the pile barely budges.

And this store is in Wendy Davis territory!

Wonder is all of the Costco's and Sam's will eat the cost of the books, or send the covers back for reimbursement?

Seems like nothing changes, even after Jim Wright gets busted for the same scam - except now they have proxies do it for them.

I suspect the 24 copies were bought by Trey Gowdy’s staffers since Hillary said in an interview that Gowdy has to look in her book for answers because she is not handing over any source documents.

Interesting observation. An indicator they're going with Fauxcahontas?

LOL - good one for the Washington Post... as close to calling the 'sales' a lie as I've seen. Seems the dedicated reporters missed the one Clinton shill who walked in and bought all 24 copies... Good one Post... NOT playing the fool for Democrats will get you credibility in the long run. Ask CNN - they're working on it too....

"Selling well" here can mean that folks looking for favors from a President Hillary have ordered bulk numbers of books. Think unions, think Saudi Arabia.

Buy 'em, then throw 'em in the trash. Then later remind Prez Hillary what a faithful supporter you have been. It's a win-win for everyone involved except the poor trash collector.

Last minute emergency Hitlery book tour Freep alert;

Event Name: Location: Time:

Philadelphia-Free Library of Philadelphia June 13, 11:30 AM

Washington, DC, Talk- Politics & Prose/George Washington University, June 13, 6:00 PM

Arlington Book Signing -Costco Pentagon City, June 14, 11:00 AM

I swear this wasn’t available yesterday. last book tour gave us plenty of notice but they are so security conscious with this one so much that even libs will find it hard to make it on a moments notice. Freep if you can.

Keeping an eye out for my area but may not be able to Freep her again even with a lot of notice. I still have the devil suit on the ready. Her last appearance in my city made a Freep counterproductive for reasons I won’t go into.

I like the inclusion of the falling into the plane. I did a similar one years ago on her boozing and its bad effects:

How many years was Gerald Ford ridiculed inthe press for tripping on the stairs of AF-1?

And yet, your montage is the first I have seen or heard of Hillary falling on her face.

Hype is simply another term for payola.

Yep.
She was obviously drunk as she clung to the handrail and wobbled at the top of the stairs with a worried drunk look... then PLOP right on her fat face.
