  •  This is a crack up out of Aeschylus ... (7+ / 0-)

    ... and, honestly, the best reality TV I've ever seen.

    It's not just that Mitt is getting handing his ass -- lots of people lose every day, though Mitt is rarely if ever among them -- it's that he seems to be inching closer and closer to the obvious recognition that it's his ass that stinks so bad.  He is not just losing the election -- he is losing the entire edifice of his persona -- and as we know, there's nothing holding it up except false pride.  I suspect even his offspring have begun to be able to see their father as imperious, overweening, manipulative, and egomaniacal -- a consummate dickhead.

    Vote rape. Vote torture. Vote War Crimes. Vote with the American top 1%.

      Another thing I would love, love, LOVE to hammer home is the ridiculous idea, long pitched by Republicans, that they are Awesome Businessmen Making The Tough Decisions. I wrote a diary about it when Meg Whitman destroyed her chances at the California governorship, but this election is manifold times that in terms of dollars squandered and the sheer number of "Business Titans" shown for the Greater Fools they are for investing in this bunch of losers and losing ideas.

        ... In a broad sense, the country has been caused to celebrate the American-style businessman as inherently and deeply worthy outside their fields of expertise.

        That's bullshit.

        Yes, hammer time.  Would that Romney2012 is the crack that topples the whole apparatus.

        Vote rape. Vote torture. Vote War Crimes. Vote with the American top 1%.
