And I know that comes off like a cheap shot at Rudy...when the truth is he's easily the least objectionable GOP candidate for my money. That picture in drag I posted and his frequent SNL appearances are a big part of the reason why I like him. He's one of the few Republicans out there who's not afraid to take the piss out of himself publicly. Maybe not a criteria that a lot of people ponder inside the voting booth...but I think it says a lot about a potential President.
Congratulations to Mitt Romney for drawing a huge crowd. To The Varsity. At lunchtime. Maybe he can draw his next "overflow" crowd by scheduling an appearance at the Five Points Marta Station on a day when the Braves and Falcons are playing at the same time. While we're here at The V though, how about a little demagoguery with your chili dog? Mittens on Hillary yesterday:
“She’s says we’ve been an on-your-own society. She wants a shared society,a we’re-all-in-this-together society. So it’s out with Adam Smith and up with Karl Marx,” the former Massachusetts governor said.
What a piece of effing work this guy is. Does he really think any talk of "we're-all-in-this-together"...of simply looking out for the other guy...really means "out with Adam Smith and up with Karl Marx"? Bite me, hard. Adam Smith's ghost ought to give you an invisible hand upside the head. You're not a bubba, Mittens...so tell those speechwriters that you hired to give you some red meat rhetoric to throw out to "the base" to dial it back a notch.
Just Facebook me, baby: This picture of our new congressman, Paul Broun, on the prowl at UGA cracks me up for some reason. I think it's because he looks like he just got a fake student ID with the name "McLegislatin" on it.
Finally, a touching scene from the White House lawn:
"Yeah, yeah...Don't let the propeller hit 'cha where the
Good Lord split 'cha, Turd Blossom."
