A pro-Romney super-PAC raised a record $20 million in June. Did I say “pro-Romney super-PAC”? Let’s call it the “anti-Obama super-PAC.” Mitt Romney is just a convenient point for them to cluster around. Half of that $20 million was from one guy, Sheldon Adelson. If Mitt Romney is elected, the country will really be run by a guy who looks like he’s playing the bad guy in an Austin Powers movie.
Yesterday Senate Republicans filibustered the DISCLOSE Act, which would require reporting of political contributions of over $10,000. I don’t think Republican donors deal in increments under $10,000. Harry Reid says that “angry old white men” are trying to buy the country with secret political donations. The saddest part is that even if they succeed, they’ll still be angry. Reid said “If this flood of outside money continues, the day after the election, 17 angry old white men will wake up and realize they’ve just bought the country.” Not exactly correct, Harry. They’ll know before they go to bed the night before.
President Obama is pointing out that Mitt Romney’s economic plan would create jobs... overseas. Give Romney credit—that’s the closest he comes to having a foreign policy. A study says that Romney’s economic plans “would increase employment in low-tax countries by about 800,000 jobs.” Want a job? Move to the Cayman Islands and get a job looking after Mitt Romney’s money.
The Obama campaign has released a devastating ad about Mitt Romney’s unreleased tax returns. The ad says “It makes you wonder if some years he paid any taxes at all.” Hey, if Mitt is as crazy about avoiding taxes as he is about avoiding releasing his taxes, I’m sure there were years he paid nothing.
Finally, the Lieutenant Governor of Florida, Jennifer Carroll, is accused of firing an aide who walked in on lesbian sexual encounter the Lt. Governor was having. Wait, I’ve seen this video. Is there a pizza delivery involved? Lt. Governor Carroll is denying any tryst took place on the grounds that she doesn’t look like a lesbian. Really. Don’t feel bad, Lt. Governor—we can’t all look like Stephanie Miller.
