Generally Horrible

image of Mitt Romney standing in front of a national debt sign, to which I have added a dialogue bubble reading: 'I mean, I'm not sure *exactly* what our national debt is, but I think it's around something like, oh, I dunno, let's say about ten? Ten mil- I mean billion. Trillion? Look, it's a lot of corndogs.'

GOOD MORNING! (Or whatever!) Here is some news for you...

See? What did I tell you? And do any of these stories make a blinking bit of difference to anyone's opinion of President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? Because those stories boil down to: President Obama is campaigning, and, by the way, he's not super popular in very conservative states and his opponents lie about his record. Mitt Romney is a rich corporatist who has a shot at the White House both in spite and because of his ties to wealthy Big Business interests. If anyone is shocked by any of that "news," congratulations on waking from your coma!

I will now turn it over to Andrew Sullivan for some totally trenchant commentary on Mitt Romney's laugh. I guess there wasn't any news about Sarah Palin's vagina today.

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