Coco LaFemme: Treygreen13: Well this has been a super classy thread so far.

No one wants Ann Romney to die. Go take a Valium and relax.


I was actually being sincere. Although I could do without people claiming that Republicans would kill a woman in a plane crash to scrounge up the PR.
 
2012-09-21 07:04:51 PM  
Glad to hear that everyone is OK and that there are no injuries.

That's gotta be pretty scary.

whither_apophis: I will not stoop to snark despite my opposition to her husband's politics. Hope all is well.

/they went cheap on the G5, should've gone Boeing BBJ
//Was Travolta the pilot?
///LDS / Scientology, same diff


According to the article, the plane was a Challenger not a Gulfstream. According to Wikipedia the Challenger 600 goes for about $25 Million. Again according to Wikipedia, the Gulfstream 5 (G5) goes for about $40 Million. BBJ start at about $47 Million.

Something like the Challenger, and even the G5 would be better than a big Boeing, because the Challenger is small enough to land in some smaller municipal airports, where with a big Boeing, you end up having to fly into a bigger airport and drive further to your campaign stop.

The biggest plane our local airport can accomodate is a G5, and that's only because one of the big fish in this town's brother in law was a congressman who pulled the necessary strings to get the exception, otherwise, it would be prop planes only.

kingflower: Alert the sister wives, Mitt may need a replacement on the campaign trail and another in the corporate bedroom.

Does anyone else think that Mitt is being a dick for putting his wife through this? She does havea life threatening illness afterall.

Bathia_Mapes: Introitus: You know, this is not newsflash worthy. Nothing on Subby mind you, this is hours OLD.

The plane landed at approximately 2:20 p.m. MT. That's not "hours" ago to someone in the Mountain or Pacific time zones.


Wait...what?
 
2012-09-21 07:11:26 PM  
S'okay, her magic undies will protect her.

I would, but I'm not registered to vote. But I'll throw out all of my baseball gear if you think that'll help.

Register to vote.

Romney probably did this to keep the news from talking about his tax returns.

/That's just a joke.

So much this.

Barricaded Gunman: Mitt's best chance of winning the election died at the same moment that plane landed safely.

Good lord, that would have cemented him as the Smiler. As if he mostly wasn't already.

[i1126.photobucket.com image 300x538]

Does that make Obama The Beast?


Nah, not even close. Romney's got equal parts Beast / Smiler going on.

/damn shame we don't have an actual Spider Jersusalem anywhere in the press.

Seriously. It's not even trolls it's just people who seriously wish bad things to happen to people they don't agree with. This doesn't even qualify as pathetic.

Decados: As much as I want to see Mitt's campaign collapse in a smouldering wreckage, I hope that his wife and everyone on that plane is ok.

It's a rental, I'm sure. Mitt's chartered campaign plane was used by U2 for their 360 tour.

Word has it that she was so shaken up, that another wife from Romney's harem will be taking over for Ann an the campaign trail until November.

The Jami Turman Fan Club:

Just because you don't spell out that you wish her death doesn't suddenly turn classless remarks into funny jokes.

GORDON: Darn,
almost one less republican to worry about... though hey, her death could win him the election with sympathy votes, so whew, close call.


Devolving_Spud: Mitt is going to kill off his wife to get the "sympathy" vote and win the election.

// I wouldn't put it past him.


what guffaw machines those two "jokes" were.

You ignore me, eh?

Let me guess, you subscribe to FOX News, no?

If you do, desubscribe, or describe your mind outside of FOX News now; if you cannot, you must vote Obama, for you are lied to everyday for advertising dollars. Whose Citizens are United when the information is sku'ed/skewed?

I'm serious.

This shiat is real talk from Indubitably, yo.

maybe. Although Obama's a good enough politician, that he might have a contingency plan for just how to act if something like that were to happen.
