I have to admit that I was a little confused. Over the past few weeks we've seen regional protests and violent events take place because some random loser put a pitifully amateur movie on YouTube. Some of these extremists in the Mideast have even committed murder because of it, somehow ascribing the views of this unknown, unloved idiot to the entire Hollywood establishment and the American government.

At the same time we have an amateur movie of Mitt Romney going insane viral - with a message from the next possible Leader of the Free World (in a race between only himself and one other person), in which he lays out his plans to personally crap all over the Palestinian people. And what do we hear from Muslim extremists? Crickets... for now.

Is it just me or does this not seem to make sense?

It's an amateur video message from a meaningless irrelevant loser, right?

The only reason I can think of that Romney's dangerously offensive comments towards the Palestinians are being taken less seriously than the comments in a movie made by a meth cooking clown, is that the meaningless irrelevant loser I mentioned earlier was actually also Mitt Romney.

The only way the discrepancy in reactions from Muslim extremists to these two videos makes any sense to me is if the world already assumes Mitt Romney's not getting anywhere near the White House.

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.
