Boston, MA (Hydrant) - Governor Mitt Romney has proposed a new plan to improve government by outsourcing democracy to a secret counsel that would meet in a quite, private room at the Marriott Hotel, which he would run as sole shareholder, CEO, President, and Chairmen of the Board, according to highly placed confidential sources.

Concerned that voters are getting confused by the complex and controversial nature of his many difficult personal and political issues, Romney proposes re-engineering our basic political and governmental processes to eliminate inefficient and discouraging distractions such as having to defend his policies, or record to reporters, on topics such as personal taxes, his experience at Bain, his tenure at the Olympics, and while Governor of Massachusetts, his vast undisclosed international financial holdings, or his policies and positions on the budget, foreign policies, domestic policies, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, defense, or any other controversial issues.

Also, to reduce duplication, and distracting questions at press conference, Romney's plan would redesign, our media systems, for maximum efficiency.  Romney would select one reporter who would act as a "media pool" to receive press releases and then foward them to media organizations.  This streamlining would allow media organizations to reduce costs for excess and duplicative journalists.  

Contacted for confirmation, Andrea Saul, spokeswoman for the Romney campaign, said the campaign reserves it's right to have different policies from Mitt Romney, himself, but would get back to us after checking with Ann Coulter, Fox News, and Erick Erickson.

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.

    in thanks to their gods, whomever they are: aquabudda, or what.  It is too hard to resist and you did a great job; tx for the lafs.

    With this dynamic duo, the material just writes itself.

    Can't wait to see Jon Stewart's s*^t eating grin when he riffs on this.

  •  Maybe that why Romney announced this Saturday (3+ / 0-)

    morning?  To avoid Jon Steward, Steven Colbert, and David Letterman to Monday, at least.  Maybe, something else will happen by then.  

    Thanks for commenting SeaTurtle.  Humor is challenging here.   I can sometimes spend 10 minutes copying a paragraph from breaking news, putting in a link and a few lead in sentences and get hundreds of recs and comments.

    But, spend some time creating something totally original and even funny (if I do say so myself) and I can sit here with no response for the longest time.  

    Thanks for you support.

      There is clearly an inverse relationship between the amount of time I invest in a creative diary and the attention it gets in terms of tips and recs and comments.  I am grateful for my loyal followers, for sure!

      people are here in the first place.

      It's like busking in a train station without being able to know the schedule. You could do a world class solo and get 75¢ for it and next day take in $100 for 30 offerings of "Hey Jude."

      I know I have tried to write diaries in which I thought I was trying to bring some important issues to the discussion table, like the diary I put up yesterday, and crickets.  And then I write one about Romney's EuroGaffes and I get the Rec List.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.  (Maybe I need to improve my diary writing skills; the diary yesterday could have been better written.)

      This is why, when I have the time, I like to read down the Recent Diaries.  Many, many times I have found gems and have been totally flummoxed why they haven't gotten more attention.  Sometimes the I think that actual time of day, or day, or other competing news stories do make a difference.  I guess there is just so much oxygen on the Internet.

      What I really liked about your original humor here, is that you created a very adept caricature of Romney and his whole approach and drew it to its logical conclusions.  I found it witty and funny and thought provoking.

      So, thank you for your creative work.

      See you round the farm, HD!

    The radical Republican party is the party of oppression, fear, loathing and above all more money and power for the people who robbed us.
