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
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.

and I don't mean that in a "wow I can't believe you do something well" way, I mean it in a "doubtful anyone illustrating Romney, comic or otherwise, will get as close as you do."

Stupid is forever, the crazy never sleeps & if Romney keeps talking the gaffs will keep on coming.

Everything is backward in that world. He inherited nothing (unless you want to count his trust fund). He's a real fun guy (unless you're the family dog tied to the roof of his car). And all the women would love him if they just knew what a great guy he was.

We'll all be eating lupins if Romney is elected. "Steals from the poor, gives to the rich... stupid," well you know the word rhyming with rich.

Why, I'll have you know he's hit his foot 9 times out of 10. Of course the tenth hit him in the ass. But heh, nobody's perfect.
If we got Mitt to be slightly less dishonest and gave him some personality he could pass as a used car salesman.

wait staff in the foreground spitting into a glass.
Seriously? Do "these people" not realize just how much human spit they are consuming after dissing the low-paid people who handle their food? And that high-priced hotel you're staying in, Mitt? What do you think happens to your sheets before you climb in bed if you are THAT condescending to the employees?
Metaphors be with you.

however, i believe that those who work for low wages, do so because they realize the dignity of work, supporting oneself and family enforces that belief. I do not think that there are more than a handful who would spit in the food of anyone. They know that such an action would bring them to the low level of those who disdain them.

Although I don't see Romney going in for the hunting humans for sport. That would take work and effort. And he might scratch himself stalking through bushes. I think he's more of the "setting the poor against themselves" in some sort of gladiatorial competition. The Emperor Romnius

No reason to invent new gaffes, we have more than enough ammunition. Best line, least reported, is Americans are not entitled to food and housing--and he claims to be a minister. He claims to be Christian, yet, goes directly against Christ's most important imperative. Romney makes me hope there is a special hell for those that trash the teachings of the Lord they smugly preach.

moment when one of the people in that video sees it and recognizes the back of their head.
by robcat2075 on Mon Sep 24, 2012 at 07:41:11 AM PDT
anyone there gleefully handed over $50g's for that seat. that back of the head was nodding in agreement, and was incapable of feeling anything remotely resembling embarrassment or shame. I think it's defective genes. it's the only excuse i will allow them. if we believe that one does not choose to be gay, then we must also believe no one chooses to be heartless, souless, ethics-lacking limpuglicants. frankly its the only way i can wrap my head around it.
by Konnie on Mon Sep 24, 2012 at 08:51:50 AM PDT
They learn this aberrant behavior from their families and social milieu, as do child abusers. Gay is a matter of genetics, I believe, and reflects a trait or traits that have been, and may still be, beneficial to human survival and development.
It's a total insult to LBGT people to compare them in any manner to these sociopaths. I've never met a gay person who was a "heartless, soulless, ethics-lacking limpublican," though I must confess I've never met one who belonged to the 1%.
No, this is learned behavior. These people have been trained to think this way by their parents and their social class.

by Panama Pete on Tue Sep 25, 2012 at 06:51:36 AM PDT
Yeah, I'm having a lot of trouble wrapping my head around Konnie's comment, which seems to suggest that being LGBT is also a matter of -- to quote -- "defective genes".
And the logic that concludes that because one set of behaviors is genetically encoded, then by definition another set must also be genetically encoded, escapes me.
Konnie, if that's not what you were trying to say, now might be a good time to clarify.

I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s evident lack of contempt for the parasite and freeloaders who comprise much of the voting public
I wonder if you, Tom, have stumbled upon a strategy for Mitt to "shore up" his base?
