Why am I not surprised by this story about Mitt Romeny's debut...

…on the NYT best seller list?

When­ever the NY Times places a “dag­ger” sym­bol next to a book, it sig­ni­fies that “some book­stores report[ed] receiv­ing bulk orders” for the book.

The NY Times placed not just one, but two, dag­gers next to Romney’s book. You can draw your own con­clu­sion as to who it was that pur­chased Gov­er­nor Romney’s book in bulk.

By con­trast, the NY Times failed to place the “dag­ger” sym­bol next to Gov­er­nor Palin’s book in any of the weeks she held the top posi­tion on the NY Times best-​seller list among non-​fiction hard­cover books. Despite the left’s unsub­stan­ti­ated the­o­ries, book­stores did not report to the NY Times that they received bulk orders for Going Rogue. See week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5, and week 6. As you can see, in none of these weeks is there a dag­ger sym­bol next to her book

I have NEVER heard any­one speak of Mitt Rom­ney with any­thing resem­bling excite­ment and I live in Massachusetts.

BTW it is worth not­ing that Sarah Palin’s book is STILL on the list (at 34) after 17 weeks.

I take excep­tion to Marc Armbinder’s com­par­i­son of Rom­ney to Roger Maris. It is unfair to Maris who actu­ally was able to hit his 61 under nor­mal game con­di­tions and won 3 World Series. Maybe it would be fairer to com­pare it to McG­wire or Barry Bonds instead.

This is ama­teur night stuff, and this guy wants to be pres­i­dent? The blow­back on this is going to be much worse that the pos­i­tive press he got when the debut first was reported. Bad form Gov­er­nor, bad form.

Any­one care to make book on how long it takes Rom­ney to fall off?

Update: It is worth not­ing that Sarah Palin’s book is still ranked in the top 150, 143 at Ama­zon as of this morn­ing, while Mitt’s newly released book is at 43, only 100 spots ahead.

…on the NYT best seller list?

Whenever the NY Times places a “dagger” symbol next to a book, it signifies that “some bookstores report[ed] receiving bulk orders” for the book.

The NY Times placed not just one, but two, daggers next to Romney’s book. You can draw your own conclusion as to who it was that purchased Governor Romney’s book in bulk.

By contrast, the NY Times failed to place the “dagger” symbol next to Governor Palin’s book in any of the weeks she held the top position on the NY Times best-seller list among non-fiction hardcover books. Despite the left’s unsubstantiated theories, bookstores did not report to the NY Times that they received bulk orders for Going Rogue. See week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5, and week 6. As you can see, in none of these weeks is there a dagger symbol next to her book

I have NEVER heard anyone speak of Mitt Romney with anything resembling excitement and I live in Massachusetts.

BTW it is worth noting that Sarah Palin’s book is STILL on the list (at 34) after 17 weeks.

I take exception to Marc Armbinder’s comparison of Romney to Roger Maris. It is unfair to Maris who actually was able to hit his 61 under normal game conditions and won 3 World Series. Maybe it would be fairer to compare it to McGwire or Barry Bonds instead.

This is amateur night stuff, and this guy wants to be president? The blowback on this is going to be much worse that the positive press he got when the debut first was reported. Bad form Governor, bad form.

Update: It is worth noting that Sarah Palin’s book is still ranked in the top 150, 143 at Amazon as of this morning, while Mitt’s newly released book is at 43, only 100 spots ahead.
