Mitt For Brains

You know, I was sort of half-heartedly pulling for the Stormin' Mormon, if only because he appeared to be the least insane of a bad lot. But after his weird departing tirade at the Conservatard Political Action Conference (better known as NAMBLA), I'm just sorry he didn't blow the rest of Tagg's inheritance on his little tilt at the douchebag windmill.

In his speech, Romney couched his decision to suspend his campaign in terms of what's best for the party and the country.

Staying in, "I'd forestall the launch of a national campaign and, frankly, I'd make it easier for Senator Clinton or Obama to win," he said. "Frankly, in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror."

No, folks like the Mittster would much rather be an accessory to vicious stupidity, and project their daddy issues onto everyone else.

Sounds familiar.

Although he did not explicitly mention Sen. John McCain, President Bush on Friday sought to unify the Republican Party behind its eventual nominee, describing the election of his successor as president as a stark ideological choice.

Mr. Bush’s remarks, delivered in an early morning speech to the Conservative Political Action Committee, presaged the role his aides said he would play all year: using the power of the presidency to shape the agenda and attack his Democratic critics.

“We have had good debates and soon we will have a nominee who will carry the conservative banner into this election and beyond,” Mr. Bush said to a boisterous audience. “Listen, the stakes in November are high. This is an important election. Prosperity and peace are in the balance.”

As the saying goes, every word in the above excerpt is a complete lie, including "and" and "the". Yes, the party of miserable failure has certainly earned another four years, haven't they? It'll be fun, after watching them swift-boat the one guy among them who actually served in combat, to see them spend the coming weeks trying to wrap their pouty lips around the m-word (that would be "McCain", for those having trouble keeping track of all the various political sausages these goobers smoke), or to just eat this one and spend the next four years in a more reality-based adversarial stance.

God bless Arthur Conan Doyle.

Yeah, that was the line that stuck in my craw too. Does that mean there'd be a third war and a deeper recession/financial crisis if we didn't keep these fuckin' crybabies on board?
