Tuesday’s Election Day. Thank goodness. I feel a bit like Abigael Evans; I, too, am ready for “Bronco Bamma” and Mitt Romney to go away. I did not early vote. The early voting locations and times weren’t convenient to me. I’ll vote after work on Tuesday. The subway train will get back at 7 o’clock, … Continue reading On Planning for Tuesday’s Election
Yesterday, a video leaked of Mitt Romney at a swank fundraiser. In Part 1 of the video, Romney displays contempt for the lower half of the electorate. In the second part, Romney dismisses the very idea of peace in Middle-East. Some reactions to the first video. Michael Tomasky: Mitt Tells Voters in Video to Drop … Continue reading On Mitt Romney’s Very Bad Fundraiser
There’s a reason the Richmond Times-Dispatch is referred to lovingly as the “Times-Disgrace.” And it’s on full display here. As reported by Think Progress, after parroting Romney’s talking points on welfare, the Times-Disgrace is cited in Romney’s latest ad on welfare, only now the Times-Disgrace doesn’t stand behind their earlier parroting of Romney’s talking points … Continue reading On the Enablement of Mitt Romney’s Mendacity
A few weeks ago, I floated a crazy idea — Mitt Romney should pick Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia’s Attorney General, for his running mate. Basically, I saw Cuccinelli as a pick to placate the Republican base, giving Romney to freedom to tack to center in the general election. And I saw a Romney/Cuccinelli pick as a … Continue reading On the Danger of the Romney/Ryan Ticket
Mitt Romney is closing in on choosing his running mate for November. Last week, coinciding with the pummeling he took in the nedia over some disclosures about his tenure at Bain Capital, the suggestion of Condi Rice was floated. Rumors this week are swirling around Rob Portman and Tim Pawlenty. And, of course, Virginia governor … Continue reading On Ken Cuccinelli, Vice Presidential Candidate
Last week, the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, upheld the Constitutionality of the PPACA, commonly referred to as “Obamacare.” Surprisingly, Chief Justice John Roberts was the deciding vote in the decision. More surprisingly, he initially voted against upholding the PPACA and changed his vote. Unsurprisingly, the Republicans, who had been so bothered under the … Continue reading On the PPACA Primal Scream
This is going to be a disjointed post, because it comes from something I wrote on Facebook. And obviously I don’t want it to fall down the memory hole that is Facebook. First, some background. I linked to this — Steve Benen of MaddowBlog pointed to an appearance of Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein on … Continue reading On Talking Politics on Facebook
This is one of the most important questions of our time. Is Mitt Romney a unicorn? Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett should investigate immediately whether or not Romney was, in fact, born a unicorn. Send Bennett a message today. Arizonans need to know that there’s not a unicorn on the ballot this November.
There’s only one conclusion to draw — Mitt Romney is as detached from reality as a phildickian mindfuck: More proof of Romney’s detachment of reality: I begin to fear that a vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for Palmer Eldritch.
After winning the Florida Primary, Mitt Romney wanted America to know — he’s “not concerned about the very poor.” Erick Erickson, the CNN pundit and proprietor of Red State wrote that Romney’s line “played straight into the liberal caricature that Republicans dont have hearts.” That’s not how it is, though. It’s not that Republicans, especially … Continue reading On Mitt Romney’s Inhumanity
Newspapers have been endorsing candidates at all levels of the political process for years. People running for President, for instance, covet the endorsements of newspapers, both in the general election and the primaries. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen anything quite like this, before, though. The Concord Monitor, in Concord, New Hampshire, ran an … Continue reading On Mitt Romney’s Anti-Endorsement
