A Rand Paul Hater Goes Crazy at Union Station

MSNBC Contributor and Mother Jones’ Washington Bureau Chief David Corn is a first class Rand Paul hater. He once tweeted:
I know Ron Paul is 76, but Rand is a lot younger. We can expect decades more of this. Decades.
There's much more of this type thing from him, but you get the picture.

Corn also happens to be quite sensitive as to where books he has authored are placed. Even at train station bookstores.

FihbowlDC reports:
...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.

The manager explained that corporate tells him what books get displays and that the order did not call for that. Corn maintained that the bookstore wasn’t well run and stormed out in a huff.

“It was a scene,” our spy tells us.

Corn, who is usually very amiable, explained to FishbowlDC what happened. He admitted he was “agitated” but said he did not “lose his temper” with neither the Nook salesman out front or the manager in back. “Agitated? Yes. Losing my temper? No. I was exasperated.” Corn said.

“It could just be this bookstore didn’t get the memo,” he surmised. “People are walking by. This is the day you want them to see the cover. You don’t know what it means the day your book comes out and your book is not prominently displayed.”

Our spy said the manager kept his cool. “Manager was awesome. Totally calm. Looked up the order for him to confirm no display. Actually, he acted as if he gets a bunch of jerks coming in there with similar demands. Washington!”
Corn better watch out, now that Rand Paul supporters know how to get under Corn's skin, they may start moving his books to the children's section next to Duck & Goose. 
Duck & Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny!


  1. Typical DC elitist clown. I am sure we can expect decades more temper tantrums and public meltdowns when this baby doesn't get his way in the future. How very tolerant and understanding for the progressive to behave!

  2. Just for the record, Mr. Corn, I would not use your book to wipe my backside for fear of contamination...

    Just another bought and paid for toady plying his trade.
