I'm gonna miss Mittens.  The comic relief he's provided has been priceless.   It's been one gaffe after another.  And you'd think his incompetent staff would have learned by now, but nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.


Pardon me, do you have some Grey Poupon?

Mittens spent the afternoon desperately trying to act like a guy you'd like to have a non-alcoholic beer with, handing out FREE hot dogs at a NASCAR race in Richmond, Virginia.

If you remember. earlier this year, Romney really screwed up, insulting working class NASCAR fans by making fun of their poor rain jackets and saying he didn't follow NASCAR but had dear friends who owned NASCAR racing teams.

A competent campaign staff, knowing Mittens is genetically gaffe prone ("My dad was brainwashed in Viet Nam") and unable to interact with regular people would keep Romney away from the public, but these clowns (no offense to Bozo) never learn.

So today they trotted Mittens out to a NASCAR event for the sequel: Gaffe Theft Auto II.

He was asked who was his favorite NASCAR driver, and he replied, ..... wait for it....  "I've got a lot of drivers I like. Thanks."   Source.


You could here the echo of Palin saying, "all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years", when she was asked what newspapers do you read.

If you are going to show up to a baseball game or football game, you can expect someone to ask you, what is your favorite team, who is your favorite player.  It's basic.   And yet, they couldn't even prep Mittens for this.

And even if you don't know a single thing about NASCAR, you could have answered Danica Patrick.   How could he not know about her!?!?!?!?  She's ubiquitous with her Super Bowl ads and various interviews.


I guess Lady Ann hasn't told Mitty that a woman race car driver exists.   Meanwhile, Lady Ann was holding a white-working-class rally at .....  wait for it..... the Twin Oaks Riding Academy (source).  Hahahahahhahahahhahahahhahhahahahahhahahahhaha.   You couldn't make this satire up if you tried.

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.
