Did you ever go to a dinner party where you just keep looking at your watch, hoping against hope that the dessert might arrive right after the salad? That’s how most Americans already feel about this election. Particularly in swing states like Ohio and Florida, where most voters would rather have an arsenic appetizer than another serving of right-wing super PAC bulls**t.
But you have to pity the poor Republicans. They don’t even like their presidential nominee. In fact, they didn’t much care for the last one either. It’s like being on two bad blind dates in a row, or, as Mama likes to call it, my love life.
You know it’s really brutal when Ann Romney had to weigh in with her harshest Dressage voice. The “warm” Romney told an Iowa radio host yesterday that Mittens’ Republican critics should just:
“Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring. And, you know, it’s an important thing that we’re doing right now and it’s an important election and it is time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt’s qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country.”
Wow. Turns out that Marie Osmond is really Marie Antoinette.
Combine Mrs. Mitt’s imperious indignation with her husband’s astonishing arrogance on the hidden video and it’s obvious that they’ve both become completely unhinged. Or maybe they’re just finally being honest. Either way, the coronation process is going very, very badly.
Clint Eastwood may end up debating an empty throne.
