Mitt Romney is Still a Terrible Choice
Hey, do you guys remember Mitch Rombley? He was the one of the many candidates for president who was totally supposed to beat up on Old Man McCain. He was the one who had Executive Experience, because he once saved the lives of everybody at the Olympics (like Eric Bana in Munich!), and then served as a Conservative, gay rights granting, universal health care-loving Governor in the Conservative state of Massachusetts.
Mitch is totally still the choice of the 100% useless Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll. This, of course, is the only thing that Mitch has won, for three years in a row. To get you an idea of how in touch CPAC is with the view of the electorate:
The survey also showed that only 4 percent of conservatives at the conference approve of the job President Obama is doing, while 95 percent disapprove.
Of course, if you were to compare Rombley to the rest of the field, you might think he should have destroyed the competition, which consisted of pre-school teacher Bobby Jindal (2nd place, 14%), Max Headroomesque internet sensation Ron Paul (3rd place, 13%), lying Barbie Doll Sarah Palin (also 3rd, 13%), and finally, completely obsolete Newt Gingrich (5%).
With this Supergroup of Political Retards, you might be suprised that a scant 44% of attendees “said they wished the Republican Party had better choices.”
As a sort of capstone on this cavalcade of nonsense, Rush Limbaugh came and spouted some:
This notion that I want the president to fail, this shows you the size problem we’ve got. That’s nothing more than common sense, and to not be able to say it?
To sum up, if you are a Republican and you feel the need to participate in the exercise in futility that is voting Republican, smart money’s on Joe the Plumber.
