And We Laughed, and Laughed, and Laughed

Our guest columnist is the second-luckiest reporter alive.

At the outset of the call, Romney said he has some connections to Wisconsin.

“One of most humorous I think relates to my father. You may remember my father, George Romney, was president of an automobile company called American Motors … They had a factory in Michigan, and they had a factory in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and another one in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,” said Romney. “And as the president of the company he decided to close the factory in Michigan and move all the production to Wisconsin. Now later he decided to run for governor of Michigan and so you can imagine that having closed the factory and moved all the production to Wisconsin was a very sensitive issue to him, for his campaign.”

Romney said he recalled a parade in which the school band marching with his father’s campaign only knew the Wisconsin fight song, not the Michigan song.

“So every time they would start playing ‘On, Wisconsin, On, Wisconsin,’ my dad’s political people would jump up and down and try to get them to stop, because they didn’t want people in Michigan to be reminded that my dad had moved production to Wisconsin,” said Romney, laughing.

Way to make a case for Occupy Mittens, Mittens.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away…

Amazing how he forsaw Romney all the way back in 1889.

Do ya think Rmoney would strangle himself if he ever achieved self-awareness or basic hue-mahn decency?

And I guess this is the problem that I have with AmeriKKKa’s kleptocrat class in general: They’re horrid, and they have no taste.

@¡Andrew!: We should just go inside his brain and start pulling out memory blocks until he starts singing “Daisy.”

@¡Andrew!: The English upper classes are worse. Apart from the buggery.

I’m still waiting for someone, ANYONE, to tell me that the entire GOP 2012 primary was a ginormous piece of performance art by subversive Kenyan Mooslem socialists. Because really, I’m starting to get bloated by all the popcorn I’ve been eating watching this shit-show of insanity.

@Benedick: Buggery makes everything better.

@SanFranLefty: Y’know, I’m not even gonna bother looking for an alternative.

@nojo: Pass me the popcorn, tall hamster guy.
