I can deal with Mitt's awkwardness and the fact that he grew up in a bubble making it impossible to relate to the 99.999999999%

What strikes me most is that he doesn't seem to be terribly bright. We all cringed when John Kerry came on stage in '04, but at least it seemed that he was intelligent and self-aware enough to realize it. Mitt seems like he thinks he's killing it every time. I can just imagine the huddle up after these events... all of the sycophants telling him "Great job Mitt!!" and Mitt smiling and saying "I know!"

You know I kind of feel sorry for Ryan. He seems genuinely intelligent and charismatic to a point. He may be right wing but I get the idea that you could have an intelligent conversation with the man and come to some common ground.


No. He gets a pass from people who don't know anything about him because he looks "earnest", but he's probably the evilest motherfarker in all of US politics.

I'm actually kind of disturbed by that. If anyone is even worse for the US than Rmoney, it's Ryan. Mitt's just a clueless rich boy who has no idea how the real world works. Ryan however is a scheming, devilish little sh*t who DOES know what he wants, who he wants to inflict it on, and how to go about it if only he had the power of office to wage it.

Romney started the race with basically a 50% shot at winning the Presidency. Now if he knew the companies that would benefit from a 2nd Obama term and the companies that would be hurt by this. Even if predictable gains/losses were only in the 2% to 5% range. Let's say he invests/shorts said companies on a 1 to 100 margin. Let's say $100M and sells after throwing the election. That is a 200% to 500% return on $100M.

The Romney/Ryan campaign is like "Fredo in the boat." Joe Scarborough, September 26, 2012

I wonder which member of the ticket will come back to shore...

Romney will be persona non grata after the election. He'll get dropped like a sack of cement. Even Palin has managed to hang around, keeping herself on television through Fox News. I don't even think Fox News will humor Romney when they no longer have to.

The real question is whether the GOP will simply label Romney a RINO and veer harder right, or if they'll come to their senses. I think it will probably take at least two more presidential elections, before the GOP is forced back to the center, depending on how Congressional elections go.


Part of the party will double down and head even farther right as fast as humanly possible. Part of the party will wake up and try to become centrist. Part of the party will claim to be "true conservatives." The libertarian part of the party will wander around in confusion. We may see the Republican Party split into two or maybe even three different parties. It may take another four years, but it may happen.

I have to give her props for this:

On June 26, 2007, near the beginning of Morning Joe, Brzezinski refused to read a report about Paris Hilton's release from jail. One hour later during another news break segment, her producer Andy Jones again pushed the story as the lead, ranking it over Indiana's Republican Senator Richard Lugar's break with President Bush on the Iraq war, which Brzezinski considered more important. After several sarcastic remarks from host Joe Scarborough, she attempted to light the story's script on fire on the air, but was physically prevented from doing so by co-host Willie Geist. She then tore up the script, and one hour later, got up and ran another copy of the script through a paper shredder retrieved from Dan Abrams's office. The incident was quickly popularized on the Internet, and in the days that followed, Brzezinski received large quantities of fan mail supporting her on-air protest as a commentary on the tension between "hard news" and "entertainment news". Similarly, on July 7, 2010, she spent significant airtime objecting to pressure to report on Lindsay Lohan and Levi Johnston, eventually having Geist or Pat Buchanan report the stories with the caption "News You Can't Use".

As I suspect is the case with many of you reading this, I'm so ready for this presidential campaign to be over with, to the point where I simply can't bring myself to watch cable news very much. But I do still enjoy Morning Joe every now and then! Occasional douchebag guest aside, it's always struck me as the most sensible, balanced and non shout-y cable news talk show going these days.

With that said, I'm kind of sad that I didn't tune in this morning to see this live: Republican co-host Joe Scarborough, a Romney supporter, recoiling in horror after viewing a clip of the Most Painfully Awkward Man in the World trying to coax a crowd into starting a "Romney/Ryan" chant. Like, Scarborough literally buries his face in his hands and moans, "sweet Jesus."

And just think: with the debates still to come and Romney as of now estimated to have less than a 4% chance of beating Obama, it's only going to get more painfully awkward from here!

Not really.

Magic underwear (it's literally supposed to be magic and protect you from harm) is frickin' hilarious, all those other items, well, we don't even know what they are. If we knew we might care, an undershirt is meh, I don't know (or care) what those other ones are. We don't care about the magic underwear beyond snide jokes akin to invisible pink unicorns.

Also it helps that the Mormons aren't an oppressed minority. I mean, they're a minority sure, but when you can spend 20 million on one initiative oppressing another minority you've mostly lost your victim card.

There is also the divide and conquer strategy, used to be Mormans vs. Cataholics vs. Baps vs. Crystal methodists (okay that sentence seemed funnier in my head) and us secular folk could relax, now all the fundies try to go ecumenical crusade on us and just teaching basic farking science is a long, hard slog through the mud. Get the Mormon weirdness out in the open (it's weird, deal with it) and the OTHER religions will suddenly have reasons to start arguing with each other instead of going back to chipping away at the constitution and scientific progress and sanity in favor of christian dominionism. At least in theory.

Actually, that position is already officially taken according to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love that people are very quick to ridicule LDS temple garments, when they probably wouldn't make fun of Jews wearing the tallit katan or Sikhs for wearing the kachh, or even Muslims wearing the ihram during the Hajj. But people seem creepily obsessed with Mormons and their undergarments for some reason.


Good point... I make the occasional 'Magic Underwear' joke, but in reality, I find it no more ridiculous than any of the other stuff you mentioned, and just for the record, I make fun of the Pope's funny hat as well...

Don't know about you guys, but the few facebook friends I have (who happen to militant teabaggers) that used to repost at least 3 links daily from the reagan coalition, etc... have been curiously silent lately. Perhaps reality is kicking in for them. Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

I've said it once and I will say it again. Romney is a 13 year old girl trapped in a 65 year old body.

Carn: IoSaturnalia: Carn: IoSaturnalia: Carn: This has been the most entertaining political campaign I can remember.

Oh come on. You can't remember four years back? Does "suspend my campain for the good of the country" or "in what respect, Charlie" ring any bells?

This is way mo better. The previous campaign just scared the daylights out of me, especially for the brief period of time that McCain and Palin were ahead in the polls.

Plus, I mean, we started with the "Who will be king of the retards?" contest, I mean the Republican primaries.

Mitt still hasn't had to face the electorate and declare "I am not a witch", either.

Oh, I forgot about her. October surprise?!

The Romney/Ryan campaign is like "Fredo in the boat." Joe Scarborough, September 26, 2012

I wonder which member of the ticket will come back to shore...

mrshowrules: KrispyKritter: i'm not that bright but even i caught on a year ago that the GOP is trolling america to guarantee Pres. Obama is reelected. i just don't know why. i told you i'm not that bright.

Romney started the race with basically a 50% shot at winning the Presidency. Now if he knew the companies that would benefit from a 2nd Obama term and the companies that would be hurt by this. Even if predictable gains/losses were only in the 2% to 5% range. Let's say he invests/shorts said companies on a 1 to 100 margin. Let's say $100M and sells after throwing the election. That is a 200% to 500% return on $100M.

Mike_LowELL: When Mitchell Romney wins, he needs to jail every one of these "Republicans". Jail the House, jail the Senate, jail the Supreme Court. You turn your back on Thaddeus and he will turn his back on you. That's the only way to keep this country safe for democracy.

Hey, there's still a chance that this man could very soon be President of the United States of America.

I'm sure most of us would survive it. Well, except those dying in the Iran War and whatever other fark ups he gets us into.

WI241TH: King Something: Still seven days between now and the start of the first (only?) debate, so I expect at least 3 Romney gaffes between now and then, possibly as many as six.

Note - gaffes that happened before this comment is posted, such as "Obama didn't raise taxes" and "hey, guys, don't just chant 'Ryan, Ryan,' I'm here too!" don't count; and neither do any gaffes which will happen after the start of the debate, such as at least a third of whatever Mitt's gonna say.

/T -168h46m

I dunno, Romney sure sounds confident: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney joked today that Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio., plays President Obama so well in their debate prep session that afterwards he wants to "kick him out of the room."


That right there is why I am looking forward to the debate(s). Romney will not be able to keep his disdain in check.

gilgigamesh: Mitt Romney made a mistake when he decided to make Charisma his drop stat.

He is the living embodiment of the difference between charisma and comeliness: good looking guy, looks presidential, and has a comeliness probably around 15, but with a charisma of 5 or 6.


I picture Romney as a character in this game maxed on on Chutzpah.

SilentStrider: mrshowrules: My advice to Romney would be to hide until the debate. Right now he is just giving Obama a boatload of things to use against him. Notice how Obama has been relatively quiet lately?

Never interrupt your opponent when they're making a mistake.

Obama's been saying things, but he hasn't been having gaffe after gaffe and moment of truth after moment of truth like Romney has.


I guess what I meant is that what Obama is saying hasn't been Fark/CNN worthy. Romney said more stupid shiat in one month than Obama has said in his entire first term.

I read last week that the campaign was going the "All Mitt, All the Time!" route because he keeps coming off as not being relatable. I still crack up every time I think of that. "Hey, guys--whenever we trot out Mitt, he says something stupid. What should we do?"

"MOAR MITT!"

mrshowrules: That is hilarious. Romney drawing attention to the fact that the audience is only cheering for Ryan.


Wait a second, wait a second... Allow me to inject some good ole fashioned Mormon charisma here...

/ What takes this even more over the top is that he is wearing his magic underpants for this rally and thinks he will be the God of the planet Earth.
