It’s delicious, isn’t it?  The subject line of this diary is really a headline on  A front page diary.  The meat of the post is that Republicans were duped in voting for the Budget Control Act.  And now, these same Republicans are “beclowning” themselves for its repeal.  

side note:  what does it mean to beclown yourself?  It doesn’t sound good, but I’m not sure it’s a word!

The diary has some choice quotes, like:

We all agree that the across-the-board nature of the sequester cuts to the military are dumb.  But they were enacted by the same dumb people who are pursuing its repeal.
But the point of THIS diary is not to talk about beclowning or hootenanny or flibberflubber, it’s to point out that the ship is sinking and we’re not the only ones who have noticed.

As of this writing, only two mention of Romney on their Politics page

1. Romney fundraiser video causing media uproar
2. Obama has edge over Romney in three battleground states
Well, it’s more than just three states, but I won’t quibbledibble about it with FoxNews.

From the Weekly Standard:

1. A special report on “redistribution”
2. And an article about Romney doing the unthinkable, taking credit for Obamacare

1.  Oh no!  Obama Support is dropping apparently (only one source!)
2. And Senator Brown leads Warren by four, in really big typeface!

At the National Review, Mitt is having a “Gettysburg Moment” which is a good thing (?), I think, because he’s in the news a lot, or something.

And a very positive spin on how Romney is trying to win the coal constituency, except he isn’t.

I could go on and on.  Things are desperate in Romneyland.  I feel strongly about asking you to pass the popcorn, but I’ve got better things to do.  Like continue to help Barack Obama get reelected and help the Democrats hold the Senate.

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.
