When asked what she wants to say to Republican critics of Mitt, Ann Romney said “Stop it! This is hard!”
I have news for you, Ann—being president is hard too. And people criticize you even after you get the job! You think this is hard? Try running the country while the other party has ground the Congress to a halt and their base accuses you of being a foreign-born imposter. Ann, maybe you should unwind with some comfort food. Go make yourself some tuna and pasta. Or have the kitchen staff make it.
This week the candidates faced Hispanic voters. Mitt Romney seemed to do it with a face that was a couple shades browner
than his regular face. It looks like Mitt was wearing a fake tan to darken his skin when he went on Univision! That explains why, when I first saw the tape, I thought “Why is George Hamilton on Spanish TV, lying about his stand on immigration?” If Mitt was putting on an actual fake face for the Hispanic voters, it was the perfect metaphor for the two-faced way he responded to their questions. The big difference is that Mitt’s fake tan was applied with much more skill and subtlety than his fake answers.
You’re doing a heckuva job, Brown-nosers! Just last month, Mitt Romney handed out bonuses to his campaign staff
. Well actually, he just gave bonuses to his “top” staff. But since we’re talking about Mitt Romney, I didn’t have to tell you that part. I can only assume that Mitt holds 47 percent of his own staff in contempt as well. Actually, I’m glad Mitt gave his top people bonuses. It’s going to be a long, long time before any of those folks finds another job.
People in Texas and Virginia have lynched a chair in their yards
in apparent reference to Clint Eastwood’s equating of Obama with an empty chair. That’s the rightwing extremists for you! Let’s take something that gave everybody a good laugh (even Mitt Romney, or so he says) and turn it into something that makes everybody want to vomit.
