|Just take the photo, lady, I'm sick of your bawling kid!|
Somewhere in this raggedy and rampage-filled week, Mitt Romney started buying more Twitter followers. Now I'm not sure how that's done -- or what his campaign is trying to prove by doing it -- but it smacks of fourteen-year-olds with raging hormones sending love letters to themselves. Besides that, the tweets from these accounts are so bad, it is my belief that he's outsourcing the whole thing to China. Adding insult to injury, Politicususa points out that Romney still has only two hundred thousand real human followers, while President Obama has almost eighteen million. This is not a new thing, of course; Romney was buying Twitter followers back in 2011. Gingrich, Palin, Bachmann, Pawlenty -- they've all played this little game. Hey, what's the going rate for a Twitter follower these days, anybody know?
That Taxing Tax Tangle
|Are they laughing at me? They're|
laughing at me, aren't they?
Republican leaders and their talking heads throughout the land have publicly called on Romney to hand over the tax returns -- to no avail. I have the feeling if Mitt makes it to the White House, he's going to have an Enemies List long enough to reach one of Bain's call centers in India.
And though they are certain that Mitt has nothing to hide, even that revered conservative ragazine National Review has told him in no uncertain terms that he should release the returns, respond to any attacks they bring, and move on. While speculation abounds regarding what's in those returns that he doesn't want anyone to see, a highly probable one is that he took the 2009 tax amnesty for hiding money in a secret (non-disclosed to the IRS) Swiss bank account when
Mitt dismisses the whole Show Us Your Tax Returns brouhaha as [The Obama campaign's] opposition people look for anything they can find to distort, to twist, and to try and make negative, and I want to make this a campaign about the economy and creating jobs. And they want to make this campaign about attacking people and diverting attention from our job picture in this country. [Memo to Mitt: If there's nothing to attack in those returns, what's your problem?]
Perhaps Mitt will Pull a Palin and release his tax returns the day before the election, eh?
When the Missus Muffs the Message
|Sorry, but you people don't|
deserve the full 'Ann wave.'
This is not Ann's first bout of Foot-in-Mouth disease. We all remember that she doesn't consider herself wealthy, that she loves the fact that there are women out there who don't have a choice and must go to work and raise their children, and that she's going to unzip Mitt to prove he's not stiff. [Way too much information, Ann. Seriously.]
From the A Village is Missing Its Idiot File
*Rush Limbaugh decided that Bane, one of the characters in the movie Dark Knight Rises, is part of a liberal media conspiracy against Romney and Bain Capital. Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire breathing four eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bane? he asked his fire-breathing-four-eyed listeners.
Considering that Bane has been a comic book character since 1993 would suggest that Rush has been diving into the Oxycontin bottle big time.
Of course the next day, most likely after he came out of his drug-induced stupor, he denied the whole thing: I never said that. I didn't say there was a conspiracy theory.
|President Obama: Can you believe that? Ann Romney actually said we'd find more things in their tax returns to attack.|
