Quote of the Day

"Zany is not what we need in a president. Zany is great in a campaign. It's great on talk radio. It's great in the print; it makes for fun reading. But in terms of a president, we need a leader, and a leader needs to be someone who can bring Americans together."—GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, on his "zany" opponent, Newt Gingrich.

How the fuck boring are you if you think Newt Gingrich is "zany"? This is not helping your image as a total snoozefest, Mr. Romney.

Protip: If you don't want pundits incessantly talking about your habitual flip-floppery, make sure it isn't the most interesting thing about you.

Especially because "inconsistency in his voting record" is literally so uninteresting I fell asleep seven times just typing out the phrase.
