Romney vs. Sandy: brutal ad by ClimateSilence I wish everyone could see by Tuesday.
Campaigning in front of an artificial castle in Daytona, Florida on Friday, Mitt Romney said Obama’s use of “Romnesia” isn’t presidential.
You can’t make this stuff up. According to Buzzfeed:
Romney and running mate Paul Ryan addressed roughly 10,000 raucous supporters, many of whom were motorcycle enthusiasts in town for “Biketoberfest.”
Outside the perimeter, protesters heckled, women grinded on poles, and intoxicated revelers at a Bubba Gump Shrimp spilled beer as they danced to the campaign soundtrack blasting out of the speakers. From inside the rally, reporters witnessed at least two people throw up on the sidewalk.
Seems pretty obvious no?
Did Mitt Romney cheat in Wednesday’s debate? This slowed-down closeup posted to YouTube makes it appear as though he reaches into his pocket, pulls out a paper and places it on his lectern, in violation of rules that stated:
No props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by any candidate.

In the new Scooter, Abe Sauer offers tips on how to make sure your children aren’t brainwashed this fall, in “How To Talk To Your Kids About Republicans”:
Just as Joe Camel once enticed children into tobacco addiction, the two parties’ cartoon mascots are an early gateway. With its kid-friendly (if lumbering) elephant, the GOP has the edge over the Democrats’ donkey. Your kids will view Republicans as the party of Babar and Dumbo: joyous orphans who faced the hardships of life on their own, without assistance from any central authority.
Meanwhile, the only donkey in most kids’ lives is Eeyore, Winnie the Pooh’s compatriot who never stops whining about his lot in life. While Eeyore does exhibit a glum, enjoyable humor, it is of the sort most associated with adult characters like Woody Allen. And there is only one child in the world who has ever loved Woody Allen.
