dustman81: Who said it, Mitt Romney or Mr. Burns? "You there. Revulcanize my tires and fill it with petroleum distillate, posthaste!"


A little too cerebral for Romney.

If Mitt is really trying to get back to private life, motherfarker needs to try harder. He's still dropping morsels drenched in F*ck You sauce. Those comments about Obama's "gifts" only got disseminated because he let in members of the press to that particular conference call.

Took a trip from MT to OR...having somebody else put gas in my car just felt...wrong.
Like I was disabled or something and unable to do it myself.

Yeah, I know it's THE LAW...still felt uncomfortable.

Overnight, a person identified only as "mkb95" posted on Reddit a photo of Romney pumping gas into a vehicle.

This sounds like something Romney would have said. "Hello. I am pumping gas into a vehicle. I will be a motorist again soon."

Surprised we haven't heard much from her lately.


You didn't see Palin, any or the Bushes (well none of the ones that were President, who knows there are like 20 of them ) at the Republican Convention. I think their host governor Rick Scott might have shown up at the last minute. Republicans are ashamed of each other.

"...near their vacation home in La Jolla, Calif"

Romney's "vacation home" This the place Romney will bulldoze the current $12,000,000.00 ($12 MILLION) 3,000-square-foot home and build one that is 11,000 square feet (approximately $35 Million). This is the one with the car elevator

It will be great. In a wonderful contrast, both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton will be speaking at the Democratic Convention.

Hell, even Jimmy Carter - a punching bag for Republicans if there ever was one - had a televised appearance at the last DNC. In an even more delicious bit of Schadenfreude, Carter's grandson was the one that coordinated the release of Romney's 47% video. Talk about payback.

Though, to be fair, George H.W. Bush is widely considered a RINO through no fault of his own. He refuses to suck Grover Norquist dick among other things, and it's cost him standing within his party.

Just out of bored curiosity, does anyone know when a defeated presidential candidate loses his Secret Service protection? I mean, do they pack up as the deciding EV rolls in? Do they wave goodbye as he finishes his concession speech? Or does he just suddenly peer around at the empty room at some point and go, "Guys? Hello?"

Most stations will not allow them to pump gas in your motorcycle, however. Which is nice, because I don't want them spilling gas all over my bike.

YoungSwedishBlonde: I actually do feel bad for Romney. But then again, I'm deluding myself into believing that he's more moderate than he leads on and his campaign was mostly pandering to the teabagger derp.

That's what I've heard. By giving her no hobbies, interests, characteristics, personality, charisma, hopes or dreams just about anyone who wants to read that crap for the purposes of escapism can implant themselves as the main character.

Diogenes: Jackson Herring: Diogenes: coco ebert: And over the weekend, TMZ also reported that the Romneys caught the latest Twilight movie at a theater in Del Mar, Calif., near their vacation home in La Jolla, Calif. The couple then went across the street for pizza.

lol

Least-mentioned facepalm of the entire election. Romney, Mr. Morals, is into Paranormal Teen Romance novels.

/yes, there is a whole section titled that in barnes & noble now

The author of the Twilights books is a Mormon.

I'm aware. I don't understand it. But I'm aware.


Ah, well that explains my reaction of "wow, these are the most socially awkward characters I've encountered since Orson Scott Card's novels."

I live in Jersey, and I always pump my own gas..........only a couple of times has some patriot tried to stop me.

BTW, opinion surveys done over the years of Jersey drivers consistently show that they don't want self service.

Yeah, I feel bad for him too. It must be tough to be rich beyond the dreams of avarice and be able to choose to run for president in the same way other people choose to sign up for a WoW subscription or go to dollar beer night.

I'll feel bad for him when his square damned head is bouncing into the guillotine basket and not a minute before.

As I said. He is the Grandmother in 'A Good Man is Hard to Find'. He'd be humble if he had someone holding a gun to his head every minute of the day.

So, no, I've no empathy for him. He needs to be humbled and humiliated.

If you have a demon baby in your belly that will kill you. You don't get an abortion. You let your demon husband perform an emergency c section. Then when your ex comes to see you and falls madly in love with your demon baby, he will have to wait until it turns 14 to marry and fark it.

Clearly Mormon values.


Wait, are you saying that those aren't Mormon values?

I'd put money ($10,000 !?!?!?) that he saw Twilight at Cinepolis. You think a Romney would be caught dead in an Ultra Star? Ha!

Also, per the article... the gas station is in La Jolla, not Del mar. The Chevron on La Jolla Blvd and Pearl.

I admit you're probably right on the theater, but there's no correlation between theater choice and refueling destination. Besides he probably frequents the same theater more often than the same gas station.

never has a politician lived that deserves your sympathy or empathy. their lot are the lowest of the low, the are truly horrible. i would rather keep company with used car salesmen, hookers, junkies, ladyboys, alcoholics, run-aways, tax dodgers, Nazis and recidivists.

Oh come on, Media. The schadenfreude was fun for a week, but now it's like you're chasing Romney down and cutting his hair.

It's time to start ignoring Mitt and let him have the political irrelevance he's worked so hard to desserve.
