Perhaps the exact minute when Mitt Romney realized that he had become a laughingstock.

To be fair there COULD have been other times, but something about that look on his face, which seems to say "What the hell am I doing here?" that, for me at least, indicates that THIS might have been the moment when Romney realized his last traces of dignity had slipped away.

Oh sure, he STILL thought he would win (Rove told him he would), but perhaps this is when he realized his only hope was to game the system.

    That was a painful thing to watch. You could tell Romney was utterly embarrassed, as he should have been. It was cringe worthy.

    I like how in that photo, John Rich is looking all googly eyed at Romney! But Rich was probably thinking the same thing: "Man, this is embarrassing Romney."

    You remember John Rich, don't you? He wrote a song in 2008 for McCain which he said was his 'gift to the country.' He said that with a straight face, too. 'Raisin' McCain'..God, it sucked!

    But Romney really, really looked aghast at what was happening around him when these so-called performers were 'performing.' Too funny!

    I'm so glad Obama has Bruce!!

    And by the way, isn't it quite telling that Romney never had Ted Nugent at any of his rallies??

    This is a real DOUZY of a conservative theory on how Obama will secure a THIRD term as president and it has everything to do with OIL. Grphen, I would be curious what you think of this lengthy presentation and how much accuracy there is to the OIL part. The Obama part is a whole lot of 'socialistic' fear mongering and lies, and loads of right wing talking points, but the OIL part is a bit eye opening. And if true, we are looking to an amazingly positive future.

    If any of your readers are in the OIL and GAS business, I'd love to hear from them as well.

    1. Obviously when Obama said he was giving his last speech EVER as a candidate for any office, these wingnuts took that to mean something more ominous than we sane people did.

    He sold his soul for power and he ended up losing anyway.

      Phone transcript from earlier in the afternoon of the disheveled gas pumping has been released.

      "Hello is this Hades? I will have Mitt rMONEY on the line for you. His time is valuable, so I'll go over everything with you first. He wants to exercise the buyback option on that sale of soul contract he made with LuciferLLC a few years ago.

      He wanted me to tell you that things turned differently from what you guaranteed and that he's now changing his mind. He says your white horse Prophecy had failed the Mormons before, and his important friends at the Temple are preparing to have a new revelation about this prophecy so people won't be failed by it again.

      You had promised all his money back AND a large profit if he exercised that buyback option. He says his accountant calculates a $34 million profit under the terms of his deal with LuciferLLC. So he's shafting you just like everyone else. He says to run his money through the Caymans so it ends up in his family foundation. "Only little people pay taxes" is his motto. He doesn't want to tithe much on that 34 large,so who who needs to know?

      He's busy and as long as there is no trouble from your end, he'll be quiet and not damage LuciferLLC's good name. He thinks he can collect on the new customer referral clause too, but that he needs his 34 large before you get any names other than Rubio and Palin. Willard doesn't trust anyone he can't buy.

      He'll come on the line just to hear you roll over on all this, so do we have an agreement? Just so you know Mitt intends to invest with Elon Musk, he's going to build a spaceship to travel with his entire family and all their dead ancestors to some planet named Kolob. What with Obamacare and gays getting married the rMONEYS figure they need to embark before Hillary Clinton/Howard Dean beat Todd Palin/ Mrs. Todd Akin in 2016.

      Hello Mr Lucifer? SIR! I hear you laughing at me, THAT IS RUDE. I need to know what are the words that go with ROTLMFAO? I'll have to tell Willard that there is a problem. He hates that. I'll probably be fired. This isn't going to go well."

    So, so, disappointed in Randy Owen. This former country girl will never be able to listen to Alabama with unbridled enjoyment again.

    Romney had Meatloaf, Obama had the Boss (Bruce Springsteen) and the Big Dog (Bill Clinton).

    The Republicans are aging out. Not cool.

    President Obama's coalition was built on the strength of every reasonable, hopeful, thinking person. They just happen to be younger, better educated, less extreme in their religious beliefs, less racist, and more open to facts as a basis for opinion.

    What a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    These people are so living in an alternate reality.

    Why Election Fraud Is the Only Logical Answer For Dean Chambers

    During the 2012 election, one of the more amusing sidelights was that of Dean Chambers, an amateur pollster who was "unskewing" the polls that showed Obama with a significant lead. He arrived at his conclusions by looking at the raw data, deciding that it overestimated Democratic turnout and underestimated Republican turnout by a number of percentage points, and then correcting the totals to match. The source of this data was his certainty that the Republicans were going to beat the Democrats this time around.

    Needless to say, that didn't happen.

    At that point, everyone expected Chambers to recant his "unskewing" efforts, and at first it looked like that was going to happen. An interview with him the day after the election found him questioning Rasmussen's poll numbers. But eventually, he settled on an alternative explanation, posted at his new website:

    Somehow, the Democrats had used fraud to skew the vote numbers just as surely as they'd skewed the polls. The election had been stolen from the rightful winner, Mitt Romney, and only he knew it!

    This might seem like a totally irrational conclusion. And in fact, it is. But psychologically speaking, it really was the only conclusion Chambers could come to, and behind the fold, I'll explain why.

    Gryphen, this is something to be so thankful for:

    'Please do watch the entire speech, for it is all so endearingly inspirational, moving and touching.'

  12. In a Karmic twist of irony, as the last of the popular votes are coming in it looks like ol' Willard got, wait for it.....47% of the popular vote.

    This WAS a fantastic photo op! He has that same look on his face and body stance as the faked "butt pinch" while posing with waitresses.

    Whoever thought of "going" with Owens and Loaf without rehearsing was an idiot - Mitt must have thought of it himself - Two singing southern boys - what could possibly go wrong?

    The best part is that he thought he had this election in the bag, right up till they called Obama the winner.
