Out of the Mouth of Boobs

mitt four-faced romneyThe shortest internalized conversation in history probably sounded a bit like this:

"Hmm, I can either continue to support progressive ideals or I can run as a presidential candidate for the party that will continue to make me filthy, stinking rich. Done!"

Keep in mind that Mittens Romney has so much money that he keeps them in secret Swiss bank accounts.

Swiss. Bank. Accounts.

As far as we know, that makes him the only presidential candidate in American history that had to hide his fortune, and how he acquired it, from public purview. You kinda think that might be, you know, important to the electorate. We'll see.

And, to be honest, Romney wouldn't cut off his own shlong. He'd invest in a company that makes rubber shlongs, force it into debt, sell off all the pieces systematically, then fire all the workers.


LeoThis is Leo. He died April 4th at the age of 11 as a result of FeLV. He was without a doubt one of the most troublesome, hard-headed cats I have ever encountered... and I am going to miss the little SOB terribly.

If you'd like to know more about Leo I've erected a small memoriam in his honor on the Infinite Cat Project.



Note 1: Hermain Cain (Remember him? Black guy? Ran for president?) headlined a "Revolution on the Hill" rally in Washington on Sunday. They expected thousands to attend. The result was, uhhh, not so much.

Note 2: Doctors bill for every little thing they do, because they make more money that way. But it's such an inefficient process that it costs Americans $360 billion dollars a year.

Note 3: You want to fix Wall Street? According to Barry Ritholtz all we have to do is reinstate Glass-Stegall and overturn the Commodity Futures Monetization Act. I believe him.

Note 4: For every American soldier that dies on the battlefield, about 25 veterans are dying by their own hands.

Note 5: My new bumper sticker.

Today's Google Chow.

Mitt Romney supported planned parenthood, gun control, government health care, and gay rights as governor but rejected those issues in order to be the republican presidential candidate. What an opportunist.

Yeah... Ya get the feelin' Mitt would cut his own shlong off if he thought he had a shot at the Miss America title.
