Couple of Political Things



Good. That's a good place to attack Romney, and this ad is pretty simple and elegant. The thing about Romney is, you don't have to scratch the surface too hard to uncover the hypocrisy and the lies and the general incompetence.

But if you wanted to: here's the leaked McCain opposition file on Romney on Google Docs. Just skim it. Look especially at his record as Governor of Massachusetts. I find it chillingly weird that he was so intent on imposing fees on, say, blind people (for being blind), but did so much to derail spending on a database of sex offenders. It doesn't line up for me. Like, "Damn those blind people and their free ride, it's time to start charging them for the privilege of gaining access to state programs specifically to aid blind people! Oh, we lost track of a third of sex offenders? Eh, no big deal. Here, let me take half the money set aside for creating a database of those criminals and use it for something else." What the hell is that all about?

Mitt Romney: Protecting Child Molesters Before Joe Paterno Made It Defensible by College Idiots.

But really, isn't the fact that John McCain took a look at all of this and felt Sarah Palin was a more viable candidate more than a little sobering?

And after demanding to see Obama's birth certificate, isn't it more than a little indefensible that Romney won't release his tax records? (He demanded that Ted Kennedy release his back in 1994 when he was running against Kennedy for Senate.) It's because Romney knows it's all over when people see the real extent of his greed.

I'm with Mark Hamill on this one: Mitt Romney "only imitates human behavior. He's not actually human himself."

There is a LGBT group that started a channel on Youtube called "Mitt Gets Worse" and some of the videos are just... wow.

Wow, indeed. He just does not give a shit about other human beings. He thinks he can fake it, but he can't.
