If you could use a laugh, David Corn is on a frikken ROLL (Tweeting from the Olympics)...

He's Tweeting his ASS off. Quite a few funny / snarky bits. Say's he's going to get a drink. My guess is that he's already had several.

2. My favorite: "Close your eyes. Listen to Mitt Romney when he talks impromptu.

And tell me you don't hear Michael Scott."

4. Sure, what do you need?

If you want to see the Corn tweets, all you do is go to Twitter, log in, and in the search box at the top type "David Corn"...you will see his profile at the top of the list (@DavidCornDC). Click on it. At the top right of his page you will see a "follow" button and if you click on that, every time you log in to Twitter, you'll see his newest Tweets.

If you want to send a tweet that "tags" him, you would type @DavidCornDC. You can reply to his tweets, or re-tweet them to your own Twitter page (at the bottom of each Tweet you'll see the text "Expand"...hover over it and you'll see all of the links that let you do what I just explained.

If you need anything else just let me know.

10. Corn: "Release the Romney Jokes"

Release the Romney Jokes!
—By David Corn| Fri Jul. 27, 2012 3:00 AM PDT

Forget—for the moment—Mitt Romney's tax records, his calendars, his list of bundlers, and his gubernatorial emails. What the public really needs to see are the Romney jokes.

In his 2004 book about his stewardship of the 2002 Winter Olympics, Turnaround, Romney, describing his management style, wrote the following:

We instituted a rule at Bain Capital that every meeting had to begin with a joke. I love jokes and I love laughing. The humor spread through the entire meeting: people were always on the lookout for a laugh. When Ed [Eynon] began the process of having task forces [at the Salt Lake Organizing Committee] determine which should be our guiding principles, I directed that "fun" needed to be one of them. It was. And I always tried to begin meetings with a joke, just to keep things in their proper perspective.

This is information voters must have: Romney's jokes. Did the gags make it into the minutes of the Olympics meetings? Did Romney keep a list? A set of index cards? Yes, many of the Olympics records were destroyed after the games, despite Romney's public declarations of transparency. But is it possible that some of the gags survived?

In search of the missing Romney jokes, I did contact a former Bain Capital partner, and asked if he would reveal what riddles, gags, or jests Romney shared in the boardroom to lighten things up during his days as a chieftain of high finance. Did Romney favor the knock-knock variety? Chickens crossing roads? Saucy limericks? Clergy-walking-into-bars scenarios? His official response: no comment. So you know they must be good.

Ann Romney has hailed her husband as a prankster. But a funny guy? That has yet to be seen. Reporters covering the GOP presidential candidate should demand immediate access to the Romney gags. And if Romney refuses to release his jokes, the obvious question will linger until Election Day: what's he hiding?
