Oh Mitt, Call It Over Already

Mitt Romney, Flip Flopper Extraordinaire, who thinks Corporations are People, Too, and calls himself out of work, too, while he demolishes a multi-million-dollar house to make room for a multi-multi-million-dollar house, has stepped in it again.

At a town hall meeting in Arizona this week, someone asked the Mittster if he would pick a Tea Party member as his vice presidential nominee. And, while Romney didn't directly answer the question, he did extol the virtues of one Darth Cheney [intellectual property of Joe My God] as a good choice.
Mitt: “I think it was last weekend, I was watching C-SPAN, and I saw Vice President Dick Cheney, and he was being asked questions about a whole host of issues -- following 9/11, the affairs in various countries in the world. And I listened to him speak and said whether you agree or disagree with him, this is a man of wisdom and judgment, and he could have been president of the United States. That's the kind of person I’d like to have -- a person of wisdom and judgment."

Wisdom? Cheney?
Judgement? Cheney?

How about warmongering? How about war for oil? How about war for profit?
That's Dick Cheney, you moron.

In fact, this isn't the first time that Romney has shown his love for Darth Cheney; in 2009, he also heaped praise upon Cheney in the National Review:
"Former Vice President Cheney seeks no political future. He speaks from the vantage of one who witnessed the killing of our fellow citizens, who deliberated and defined the strategy that would successfully prevent further murders of our fellow Americans. His address today [referring to Cheney's national security speech at the America Enterprise institute] was direct, well-reasoned, and convincing."

And since Cheney made money on it, it suited him just fine.

Poor Mitt Romney.

He thinks any moderate Republican would want Cheney a heartbeat away from the presidency. he's crazy. And if he thinks any Democrat would vote to put Darth any where near the power seat of this country, he's just plain delusional.

Of course, if he holds true to form, in about an hour, he'll start changing his mind, and bad-mouthing Cheney.

Someone call Rita Rudner. Mitt Romney stole her act, right down to the way she delivers her jokes.

Well, if Cheney is ever a heartbeat away from the presidency, it won't be his. He has no heart, or heartbeat, remember? His actual heart is somewhere, packed in several layers of lead and concrete, in the government's top secret waste dump somewhere in a hometown near yours. It's not so much beating as it is pulsating deadly levels of radiation.
Just saying....

Hi Bob, I was wondering if you would consider adding Good as Gay to your blog roll. If you like the content at my own blog, a link back to me would be awesome. My content could be a compliment to all of the wonderful blog posts you make here. Mostly political I see, none the less great!

Thanks! I couldn't find an e mail, so I thought I would spam your comment section!

So lets see, I feel a blog post coming on.

1) Revelations that Sarah Palin had sex with a black man. That will pretty much doom her.

2) Rick Perry being a cheerleader for the death penalty and caring not a whit if he had an innocent person executed. Add to that his "Let em' die" attitude for the hypothetical man without insurance.

3) Michele Bachmann, do I need to go on? She and her ex-gay therapist husband are great for entertainment value. But U.S. Rep's rarely, if ever, get elected to the Presidency. It's usually governors of LARGE states, Senators, and military Generals.

4) Ron Paul - please, look it up.
