  •  Mitt, stop. Just stop. (13+ / 0-)

    You're just not good at this kind of thing. No one buys it and it makes you look like the pathetic, craven, pandering liar you are.

    •  yeah, he's really not very good at it, is he? (7+ / 0-)

      it's sort of sad and strange.

      but when you think of it, this is a guy who's never been around people. Mitt is the aristocratic version of the "boy who was raised by wolves". He grew up rich and sheltered and only associated with those in that strata. He joined a religion that is very exclusionary and isolationist. He went to upper eschelon universities and college and then started out in business at the CEO/Owner level.

      When would he ever have had a chance to know what real life is like, even among the upper middle class, much less anything else?

      I get the sense that much of what Mitt sees on the campaign trail is literally his first time seeing any of it. He's in his 60s. Think about that. You're 60-something when you visit a diner for the first time. You're 60-something when you see an actual time clock. You're 60-something when you witness someone on your staff using an ATM card. You're 60-something when you realize that people park their own cars and walk to their destination.  Imagine all things that would be new to you if suddenly you were plopped into his world. And reverse it. And then imagine trying to run for president in the middle of all that.

      No wonder the guy always seems off kilter.

      He is.

      He's like a wolfboy brought into a 2500 square foot modern home.

      I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.

        But I don't know; "wolves" sound a little rugged for Mitt. Maybe the "boy raised by poodles"? Maybe shar peis? Or those little toy dogs that wear sweaters and booties and get carried in purses?

      But Mitt, don't stop.  You have to prove you're way far over there on the right, at the point where if you move any further you'll fall off the flat Earth.

      And you have to do it until all your competition is gone, so at least March.  And do it loudly, publicly, and in every single ad.  You'd completely disappoint the right wing if you don't!

      Then we'll see how those ads play in the general election when the Democrats use them.
