Rueing the Day Mitt, and the Laughter, Died.

On the whole, Gail Collins is all too often a Maureen Dowd-wannabe in her New York Times columns (Gail, dear, that ship has sailed, really), but today’s entry is pretty funny and a thorough look at the Mittster’s doomed campaign. And the use of Seamus, the cartop dog, to tie it all together is particularly clever, I thought.

She’s right, of course. Without Mitt, Ol’ Fred and Mayor 9/11, the GOP side of things has ceased to be nearly as amusing. Best we can hope for now is that God’s Chosen One offers up his impressive lack of knowledge about science, the world around him, foreign affairs and other topics on a more regular basis. That’s because, sadly, the Straight Talker just isn’t funny…except in a very sad way.

Maybe he could tell his awful Chelsea Clinton joke again and get suspended by MSNBC.

Or embraced by Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter.



One thought on “Rueing the Day Mitt, and the Laughter, Died.

  1. According to the demographics, I should be voting for Hillary Clinton: I’m a white, 60-year-old, highly educated woman from the Northeast. But I’m voting for Obama. I’ve waited all my life for a viable woman candidate for the presidency, but this is not the right woman. I want a woman of the highest ability and virtue, who would serve as a glorious role model to all young women. Hillary Clinton is not that woman.

    She rode into power with her husband, and together they’ve acquired a long and seriously flawed history of self-serving and secretive financial and political dealings. The most cursory research will prove that true. She started out her political life supporting the racist Barry Goldwater. She is as comfortable with deception and trickery as George Bush. When I hear woman saying, “Oh, but that’s how you get things done in Washington,” I literally cringe.

    I am passionately supporting Barack Obama. He can beat the Republicans; she cannot. Obama has attracted Independents and even Republicans to his camp, and in a general election they would vote for him, but not for Clinton. Clinton voted for the war, and has never apologized for it. Obama has spoken out against it from the beginning. Obama brings us hope–and not just that. Take a serious look at his ideas and experience.

    Please, I beg of you, Sisters young and old: wait for the right woman. Then we can be proud.
