It seems appropriate that Mitt Romney is the de facto GOP nominee.  As a leader of a  "severely conservative" cult called Mormonism, he fits right in as the titular head of a party that worships a headless hierarchy --that "eye in the pyramid" atop tranches of all our hard-earned (and his ill-gotten) money.

The GOP's Big Tent is for TV-enthralled evangelicals, you see.  Only "ten talent" alumni with their thumbs firmly a-bible-thumpin', may apply.  Inheritance is a plus.  A loyalty oath is required.  Romney and his cult of the clever hive moralists cannot tolerate diversity of opinion or the inconvenience of an empty wallet.  Buddha was a fool, and Mohammed a reprobate.  Poverty is evidence you are "sinful", you see.  Go ask your dad for twenty large, and then we'll talk out the details.

Take, for instance, Romney's so-called immigration policy.  What little of it we know about demonstrates his ideology that citizenship is a privilege, not a right.  He'd be glad to staple a green card to your "advanced degree". Why?  Because you're less likely to be a drain on his capital gains.

You can forget about "give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free".  No, no no.  The indigent need not apply.  The Inn of Happiness is full up.  The flashing neon says "no vacancy" for vagabonds.  No shirt, no shoes, no civil rights. No Amex?  No Visa.  Y.o.y.o., muthafucka', 'cause that's how we roll!

Never mind the advertising that the Bill of Rights requires no membership fee.  Our offer's only good for well-qualified buyers.  We're gonna fudge on that "inalienable" part, as buried in the legalese, spelled out in itty bitty fine print at the bottom or your social contract, it states:  By "inalienable" we mean, if you're an "alien", then you are "ineligible".  Unless you can show us your frequent flyer miles.

Oh, and it's axiomatic that "liberal = alien", just like the Eye of the Needle is some valley in Utah, or the Holy Land, or wherever, and not a metaphor for miserliness.

And whenever we Progressives say, "well two can play..", Plutocratus Interruptus bellows out, "Wanna bet ten thousand bucks?"  Then we all get the bum's rush out of the casino.

There's a way you can tell if you're a GOP-Romney cult wannabe, in case there is a stray doubter reading this post.  It's when your job is gone, your house is gone, your 401K is gone, and you fervently believe we need to repeal "Obamacare".  Ha!  Ha!  Ha!  You're just gonna love the killer clown show we're all about to experience, if Romney and his minions get more than a whiff of sixty Senate votes.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    on the r/w blogs is how much they dislike Romney.  Many are reconciled to the fact that he will lose the election.  Their nickname is Rubber Romney.

  •  Romney's cult of lying >> Bishop Jean Vilnet (0+ / 0-)


    Youi'd like to think that Romney  worships Ronald Reagan. But no. His idol is Richard Nixon.

    The Nixon of CREEP, Donald Segretti, G. Gordon Liddy, Dirty Tricks and the Watergate disaster. Rat-fracker Nixon.

    Enter center stage: Bishop Jean-FĂ©lix-Albert-Marie Vilnet.

    Bishop Jean Vilnet was the driver of the other car in Mitt Romney's fatal accident back in 1968. In 2014, Mgr Vilnet will have been a Catholic priest for 70 years.

    The "drunk priest" named "Albert Marie" of Mitt Romney's imaginative fantasy about that 1968 accident does not exist. Photos are foolmoon dot com and elsewhere prove it.

    Bishop Vilnet was not drunk, not speeding, and not out of his own lane. That 1968 accident took place when Mitt Romney ignored painted roadway lines and went head-on into an on-coming left turn lane, opposite the post office at Beaulac, France. Concrete traffic separators were added later on. Good piece of engineering, that, but too late for Mrs. Leola Anderson. Romney's "drunk priest" lie bamboozled her family and over the next 44 years the lie got a life of its own.

    Even Nixon didn't lie like Romney. Romney is a dead lock for one thing: patron saint of slime.

  •  A pretender to the throne (0+ / 0-)

    lacking a bloodline, or Hollywood talents, he would meet the fate of a Dole or McCain. Or Landon, as voters are unlikely to forget who caused a depression. The Tea Party's anti-royal spin wants a rags to riches story. Romney still gets to pick a consort to legitimize his claim.

  •  Romney Is Embarking On (0+ / 0-)

    the most fraudulent, empty Presidential campaign in history.
    I think it is going to end with him an object of ridicule and derision to all.
