God damn, this election really is America's gift to itself after dealing with four years of teabagger bullshiat, isn't it. I feel like farkin' Tiny Tim, coming down to a delicious Christmas goose and real, really-real, presents. Except in this story, it's not a cynical, bitter, out-of-touch plutocrat shown the error of his ways and decides to redeem himself in the eyes of himself and society, but rather a cynical, bitter, out-of-touch plutocratic political party typified by a cynical, bitter, out-of-touch plutocrat, shown the error of their ways and decides to double right the fark down on those errors.

God bless us, every one!

theknuckler_33: I'm not interested in any manufactured outrage about him personally at this point.


When did this meme get started that laughing at a laughingstock is indicative of "outrage?"

At best, some of us are hoping that the outrage produced by people personally slighted will provide us with a tell all book of the campaign for more laughter material but I don't think anyone here is expressing any sort of outrage over this act.

We find it funny because this is exactly the kind of cartoon stingy rich guy behavior you'd expect from, say, Scrooge McDuck or Monty Burns. Some middle manager at the campaign, through being thoughtful enough to cancel the cards (or schedule them to be canceled at midnight the night of November 6th) while also being thoughtless enough not to give the staffers a heads up that it was going to happen managed to bring to life a caricature of Romney and, through him, the party he represents.

It's a living political cartoon exemplifying the idea of people who care so much about the bottom line that they think to go after such a niggling, little detail while ignoring relationships and the people involved and that's just a continuation of the joke that started with mockery of his Big Bird line.

If it's not funny to you, that's fine and dandy. But, c'mon, we're not Fox News here and we can and are mocking and criticizing without turning the outrage dial up to potato at every misstep.

theknuckler_33: fusillade762: theknuckler_33: tinyarena: theknuckler_33: Having a hard time thinking this is a big deal. I don't believe for a second that Romney personally had anything to do with it and I have no doubt any personal expenses will be reimbursed.

Romney got his ass kicked... it's over. I'm not interested in any manufactured outrage about him personally at this point. Who farking cares. He's done. That's all that matters.

Honestly theknuckler_33, there is a valid point to all of this. It shows us exactly what kind of people we were up against here. From the arrogance of running a sloppy campaign, to the willful ignorance of unskewing the already unskewed polls, to the indifference of not even getting their own people home, I'd say we're lucky we didn't put "those people" in charge.

/again

I'm just not getting that vibe from this. The campaign was over, time to shut things down. I'm sure they didn't want people buying tons of shiat on the cards on their way home. This way, people fork out of pocket and have to submit receipts that show legit expenses. Every business works this way. If a business were closing its doors, they'd cancel company credit cards right away because it is easier to reimburse people for legit expenses than it is to recoup money from people you are no longer sending paychecks to for illegitimate charges they may have put on the company credit card as they were being booted out the door.

I mean, I guess I can see that this says something about Romney personally or his campaign in general... but he already lost. He's done. Who cares at this point? Does this make me MORE glad that he didn't get elected? Not even a little bit. If that makes you feel better that he wasn't elected... that's cool. It doesn't do anything for me, that's all.

You are being far too thoughtful and reasonable. This behavior is unacceptable on the Politics Tab. Please cease immediately.
