Mitt and Ann are trying way way way too hard to "connect" with certain voting subgroups and it's coming off as forced and truly f*cking PATHETIC.

In a mind-boggling interview with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan for ABC Live earlier today, Mittens and Ann-bot tried really hard to be hip and cool but they both came off as f*cking scary!

"I'm kind of a Snooki fan. Look how tiny she's gotten - her spark-plug personality," Romney stated in the interview.

First of all, Snooki?  You've got to be freaking kidding me.  Maybe it's my personal bias but I despise Snooki and the rest of the mindless idiots on Jersey Shore.  But that's beside the point!  I wonder how the evangelical base views Snooki?  And also, this is so f*cking shameless and transparent.  It's like Mittens grabbed a megaphone and screamed, "Look how cool I am!  I know who Snooki is!  You know??? From JERSEY SHORE!!!!"

But, for me, the interview took a totally unpalatable turn when Mittens was asked what he prefers to wear to bed.

"I think the best answer is as a little as possible."

OH. MY. F*CKING. GOD.  You have got to be kidding me.  Mittens is so freaking egotistical and arrogant he probably thinks he is a sex symbol.  Now don't get me wrong, he's a good looking man but he's way too old to be saying stuff like this and it's totally unbecoming of a presidential candidate!  Talk about circling the drain!

And then there was this completely bizarre exchange between Ann-bot and the interviewers.

Asked what was her most embarrassing moment, Ann Romney had a doozy: the time she and her husband spent the night at the White House when George W. Bush was president and Ann decided to do some exploring.

Opening a door, she said she was shocked at what she found: "It was George Bush having a massage."

"He was covered up. I was so embarrassed that the next time I saw him I didn't know what to say. He looked at me and winked and said, 'I look pretty good, don't I?'" she said.

Why would you disclose this?  WHY?  What could you possibly gain from saying this sh*t???  

This just proves that not only are Mittens and Ann-bot completely out of touch with what people want to hear, they are shameless, transparent, and PATHETIC.

AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

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.

    I thought they were supposed to.  But perhaps I am not remembering it correctly.

    I'm too lazy to Google it. And anyway thinking about Mitt in his skivvies sort of makes me gag.

    I have no opinion on Snookie as I've never seen her. But if my husband declared he had a crush on any woman named Snookie, I'd divorce him.

      that the magic underwear is a 'temple garment', worn for religious ceremonies and such.  but i'm not a mormon, and i could be mistaken

    would be funny in another context.  I can imagine lots of people doing something silly like that and telling it later.  Part of the problem with Ann (and Mitt) is that they have spent a lot of time making sure that they weren't "lots of other people" so when they try to tell an amusing anecdote, it comes off just as phony as everything else about them.  Come to think of it, Ann even sounds phony when she's angry.  It's weird...

    that she places them in the bush white house.  stunning.  perhaps they've conceded what the polls have been showing; that americans understand who's responsible for crashing the economy

    up until now, all they would do is whine, whine, whine whenever anyone mentioned bush....were happy to put distance between themselves and bush...didn't have him at the convention....and now they're basically saying they had sleepovers and saw him naked.  ridiculous, lame, pathetic, and dumb. so, basically, typical romney
