Mitt "Way out of Touch" Romney declared the other day that:

“What’s the effective rate I’ve been paying? It’s probably closer to the 15 percent rate than anything,” Romney, a GOP presidential candidate, said. “My last 10 years, I’ve — my income comes overwhelmingly from some investments made in the past, whether ordinary income or earned annually. I got a little bit of income from my book, but I gave that all away. And then I get speaker’s fees from time to time, but not very much.”


The "not very much" turned out to be approximately $374,000.00 for the one-year period ending last February.  Maybe that's not much to him, but for most people it's a fortune.  So, go ahead, Mitt, wear those blue jeans, leave your tie at home, roll up your sleeves and keep telling us that income inequality should be left for discussion only in "quiet rooms".

I'm neither English nor student, anyway i'd like to beat him with a shovel.

Quote from: Douche bag education secretary
Gove at one point comes close to suggesting that Britain's dire economic climate means that a large-scale celebration is required to lift the country's spirits.

The education secretary writes: "In spite, and perhaps because of the austere times, the celebration should go beyond those of previous jubilees and mark the greater achievement that the diamond anniversary represents."

Apparently, Mitt has millions parked in the Cayman islands. Hello, Mitt, 1990 calling, they want their tax evasion haven  back!

Sad political news:  Stephen Colbert as Herman Cain is re-suspending the suspended Herman Cain campaign.

Hahahaha! 

The big winner last night was this?  http://www.spreadingsantorum.com/


But on the plus side, President Santorum would make life easier for many Americans:

There was a choice between an elitist non-conservative (Romney), and sleazeball who would, literally, say anything to get elected (Gingrich), a Jesus freak (Santorum), and a guy who is one alien abduction away from being a certifiable kook (Paul).

So Santorum winning was not a surprise in CO or MO. MN was surprising, though.

I believe you mean there was a choice between the guy who's gonna win the
nomination (Romney) and all the rest, in a bunch of states that really don't
matter, and the guy who still gave it his best effort won a pointless victory.... no?

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

Fucking finally, Romney actually makes sense in this campaign clip:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/e9L9A1IMTQo" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/e9L9A1IMTQo</a>


And Ron Paul sounds like a rocket surgeon here:

Wouldn't it be awesome if these two intellectual giants would debate each other?

The FB pages of anti choice politicians are being bombarded with with women asking for gynecological advice or just updating them with the staus of their vaginas. It's hilarious.
