Blast from the Past. At Daily Kos on this date in 2012—The Chronicles of Mitt: Nov 8, 2012:
|Hello, human diary. It is I again, Mitt Romney, your better.
It seems that the nation has once again failed me. My staff and I had a final meeting, during which I canceled all of their remaining credit cards and we discussed what could have gone wrong. I must confess this result has taken us all by surprise.
Eric F. opined that the most likely reason for our loss was Hurricane Sandy. Tropical storms of that nature are invariably given women's names, and the constant repetition of a female name in the closing days of the campaign likely emasculated much of our base.
On today's Kagro in the Morning show, the big news of the day is the unraveling of the 60 Minutes Benghazi "story." Greg Dworkin brings us more "quants vs. guts" debunking, this time roping in the new book, Double Down; recount news & demographics lessons from VA, and; the backlash against Guns & Ammo for daring to print something about gun safety. Next, a 60 Minutes-inspired discussion of the wingnut welfare scheme of bulk book sales, etc. Switching gears, more from the Center for Public Integrity's amazing investigation into the high-priced lawyers who help coal barons stomp on miners seeking compensation for black lung.
