In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Nobody Shows at DC Bookstore to Buy Comey’s Book

Kramerbooks, located in Washington’s trendy Dupont Circle district, is the place Washingtonians go to hang out, browse books, and grab something to eat at the attached cafe.

It’s much smaller than a Barnes and Noble and has survived Amazon because it is cozy and inviting, offering the feeling that you are immersed within a warm den of great books. And if you’re going to sell a political book, it’s a good place to start, given the clientele.

The place was open at 12:01 am Tuesday morning expecting long lines for James Comey’s new book, “I’ve Got Higher Morals than You,” or “I’m Loyal to Getting High,” or whatever it’s called, released on Tuesday. But on hand were more photographers, reporters and salespeople, all working the night shift, than customers.

The ratings for his much-hyped appearance with George Stephanopoulos were also a disappointment.

To be sure, Comey’s book is #1 on Amazon. But I don’t expect it to stay there long. There’s little in the book except for tales Comey has already told and the philosophy and moralizing of a professional bureaucrat.

I expect Comey, realizing that his act is getting stale quick, to try to pull some new tricks out of his bag by making increasingly outrageous statements during his upcoming interviews. And he’ll just further diminish himself and add to the damage done to his reputation by this self-important, self-indulgent book masquerading as a deep meditation on our society.

  1. In the inimitable words of our President, what a loser. (OK, I haven’t paid quite enough attention to know if Mr. Trump actually said that but he might as well have.) Oh, how the FBI has fallen. Thanks, Obama et al.

    1. Of course we are not going to a store to buy a book. Who does that anymore? Online is faster and easier. Go Comey!!! POTUS is mad and we love it. He is a criminal and he is the one who should be in jail.

        1. If Nelsen does “read” it would be the just the headlines of the NY Times left on the table at Starbucks. Beyond the headline, this type of person is unable to read much of anything because they already know it all after scanning the headlines of HuffPo

      1. I agree. Go, Comey. Just go. POTUS is a criminal? Yeah, I guess the hair gives it away. Evidence, no. Vulgar, yes. That’s enough for the left.

  2. Look at me. I’m important, just ask me. O much for the integrity of the FBI. This schmuck played politics with every decision he made. He tried to play both sides to make himself look fair, only to sellout to the losing side. Trump is right, what a loser.

  3. Comey was going to appear at the bookstore but he slipped off his soapbox and because it was such a high one, he broke his sanctimonious bone and could not attend.

  4. It’s a book written by a crooked Washingtonian who was fired!

    It’s not like Black Friday where the deals may make it worth your while to shop at that time.

  5. The Comey book is about Comey, not MrTrump. He tells how he feels, what he thinks, what he did and why he did it, but doesn’t even meet the low standards of a “tell all ” book.
    Comey has managed to anger the left , the right, and the center – a singular achievement in this age of partisanship.
    He should go home, stay home, and be comforted that he still has a family that respects him, since so many of us don’t.

  6. Listen-up Folks …. Comey’s tome is guaranteed to be a best seller..

    Why? Because it is the Democrats favored method of rewarding loyalty. It avoids any question of doing things for future payoff, as they can always justify buying a book. It’s worked well for the Clintons, the Obamas, and a whole lot of their political sycophants.

    Comey is guaranteed to become a millionaire (if he isn’t one already) from his anti-Trump screed.

  7. What’s getting almost no coverage is he assertion that Loretta Lynch has a significant problem but as yet undisclosed problem.

    What’s this all about?

  8. No one’s buying tickets for this Comey circus–TV appearances, his book, book store signings, etc. Lincoln said it best. “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” True then, and true now.

  9. Why would anyone go to a bookstore at midnight to buy a book – any book? Get it on Amazon or go during their lunch hour – or next Saturday. The only reason might be if a very famous author was signing only a limited number of books (and why would they be doing that at midnight?) but that sure ain’t ol’ lyin’ Comey.

  10. The liberals show again n again why they are too dumb to win elections. The article says long lines were expected, no matter when u lazy stay home types think people buy books. There was no one there except media, it was a washout, get it?

  14. An excerpt from the book: ” but Jimmy has fear? A thousand times no. I never doubted myself for a minute for I knew that my monkey strong bowels were girded with strength like the loins of a dragon ribboned with fat and the opulence of buffalo… dung. …Glorious sunset of my heart was fading. Soon the super karate monkey death car would park in my space. But Jimmy has fancy plans… and pants to match. The monkey clown horrible karate round and yummy like cute small baby chick would beat the donkey.”
