Generally Dreadful

GOOD MORNING! (Or whatever!) I hope everyone is as excited as Mitt Romney is this morning! And he is VERY EXCITED!

What could be making The Mittster such a happypants this morning...? He got the coveted RICK SANTORUM ENDORSEMENT last night, that's what! And it was such a terrific endorsement!
Former presidential hopeful Rick Santorum urged his supporters to back fellow Republican Mitt Romney's campaign Monday in a late-night email that ignored that Santorum once calling Romney the "worst Republican in the country" during their bitter contest.

..."The primary campaign certainly made it clear that Gov. Romney and I have some differences. But there are many significant areas in which we agree," Santorum wrote, citing common ground in economic, social and foreign policy.

He added: "Above all else, we both agree that President Obama must be defeated. The task will not be easy. It will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious. Gov. Romney will be that nominee and he has my endorsement."
Ha ha PERFECT. That is just a perfect endorsement. To call it tepid would be hyperbole. I was watching things come out of Matt Lauer's face about this endorsement earlier today, and he said it came in the 13th paragraph of a late-night email. LOL! Talk about burying the lede!

"I am so enthusiastic about Mitt Romney's campaign that I am digitally endorsing him under cover of night, buried deep within the fetid bowls of my typically noxious rantings."—Rick Santorum.

Good job, Rick Santorum! You're a real team player! And congratulations, Mitt Romney! This is obviously a great coup for a solid candidate!

Speaking of how great Mitt Romney is, Mitt Romney failed to challenge a woman in the audience of a town hall campaign event yesterday who accused President Obama of treason, a crime punishable by death. Romney said afterwards that "of course" he didn't agree with her, but nonetheless did not contradict her while going on to answer her question about reducing the size of the federal government.


In other Mitt Romney news, Mitt Romney is a dildobrain.

Hey! Here's a charming story about how Mitt Romney is also an entitled asshole who literally thinks the law doesn't apply to him! Ha ha oh Mitt Romney, you are such a scamp! And by scamp I mean highly privileged dude whose behavior is sooooo gross.

Finally! Igor Volsky at Think Progress: White House Hounded by Questions about Obama's Same-Sex Marriage Position for 21 Minutes. Whoooooooops! Here is some free advice: Be in favor of marriage equality! Not only is that the decent thing to do, and will cut down on the very embarrassing pressers, but it will also stop actual progressives from laughing contemptuously every time the President stands in front of a FORWARD sign, despite his retrofuck public position on the basic rights of gay/bi Americans.

Talk about these things! Or don't. Whatever makes you happy. Life is short.
