Generally Dreadful

image of Mitt Romney looking mean to which I have added text reading: 'Don't Question Me.'
True Fact: I wanted a very specific look for the font used in the above picture, and the font that looked right to me happens to be named School Bully. What a not-coincidence!

In the news today...

Harry Reid is not backing down on his "Show me the money (you paid to the IRS)!" challenge to Mitt Romney. In fact, he's doubling down! "What if he has paid no taxes, like I am saying he hasn't? What if he has all these moneys as we already the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Swiss banks. I mean, gee whiz, rather than ask me why I should do this, that is a story you should be writing!"

That's some full-on pumpernickel pugnacity, right there! Pass the passion fruit jam!

Speaking of Mitt Romney and taxes, his proposed tax plan for the US is also garbage. (I know! I was sooooo surprised, too!) "The reason Romney's plan doesn't work is very simple. The size of the tax cut he's proposing for the rich is larger than all of the tax expenditures that go to the rich put together. As such, it is mathematically impossible for him to keep his promise to make sure the top one percent keeps paying the same or more."

Here's a great headline about Mitt Romney: "Mitt Romney Abroad: Like Bush, but without the cosmopolitan flair." LOL!

(From the Wayback Machine: Bush's Cosmopolitan Flair on Parade.)

In other totally trenchant Mitt Romney news: Mitt Romney is not yet a member of the 'thumb tribe.'
Whereas President Barack Obama was heralded as the "BlackBerry president" and got his iPad 2 from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs himself, not much is known about the tech preferences of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Romney.

..."I don't think Romney is a member of the thumb tribe," said Paul Saffo, a Silicon Valley observer. "I don't see him playing Angry Birds or losing an app among his many apps."
The article does note, however, that Romney has been photographed in the general vicinity of technology: "Earlier this month, Romney was photographed sitting in a lawn chair at home, surrounded by family, with both an iPhone and iPad at the ready." LOL. Oh god. I hate everything about him.


Working class white men don't like President Obama. Huh. I wonder what THAT'S all about. Well, it's a mystery!

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