"I don't know why I'm not connecting with the peasant voters. Is it my ultra-privileged background? Could it be my parking my fortune in off shore accounts? Is it my dining on caviar and foie gras? Is it the fact that I draw my Kleenex tissues out of a jewel encrusted case?" ~ Governor Mitt "Mittens" Romney
Yes, it's time for another election blog, and for those of you wondering who Jill Stein is, so am I! That's what we get for having third parties running in these things. Or fourth parties. Or fifth parties. I'm surprised Ralph "Life Of The Party" Nader isn't running yet again.
Anyway, the editorial cartoonists have been running amok as of late, drawing on the election campaign itself, the Olympics, and other sources for inspiration, as you'll see...
Governor Mittens, in his unending run at becoming President of the United States (note to Mittens' campaign staff: start brushing up on your resumes) has been busy putting his foot in his mouth as of late, particularly in a poorly thought out trip to Europe and the Middle East, where he's made a series of gaffes and blunders, annoying people left and right. In other words... just another day for Governor Mittens.
Governor Mittens is of course looking at vice presidential running mates/sacrificial goats he can blame it on when the campaign goes belly up. And he's also busy trying to retroactively retire from his old company, hide his money from the tax collector, and fruitlessly try to pass himself off as a man of the people. Give it up, Mittens. It just won't work.
Governor Mittens turned up at the Olympics, where he swiftly put his foot in his mouth (Phase One of the What Was I Thinking World Tour) with the locals in Britain...
Speaking as an outsider... I ask the question. Is this moron the best the GOP could come up with? He's starting to make Dubya look smart.
And so President Obama continues to work on the election campaign. He has the shaky economy, health care, and a GOP opposition bent on destroying him. Fortunately he also has a complete idiot to run against in November.
It's not that far off now, the election. It just seems that way. Maybe because the race to the 2012 election already started the day after the last Presidential election. At least it has entertainment value, right?
Well, in closing, maybe you're still undecided. Maybe you don't know who to cast your vote for. In which case, you'll have to wait a few years.
Under the terms of the constitution, this guy can't be President for a few years. Nice idea though, right?
