From Mittdiculous to Mittastrophe

from Matt Miller at the WaPo: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/post/beyond-mitticulous/2012/08/02/gJQAtB4xRX_blog.html


Beyond ‘Mitticulous’

My column this week proposing “mitticulous”as a new adjective to capture the full-bore ridiculousness of Mitt Romney’s remarks and behavior struck a nerve — but even better, it drew some great reader ideas for other Mitt-inspired additions to the English language . . .

Romney’s followers, many readers simultaneously agreed, should henceforth be dubbed “Mittwits.”

Some said Romney’s behavior was so pathetic as to be truly “mittiful.”

“The guy is the village Mitt-iot,” wrote one reader. His actions are thus “mittiotic.”

. . . a few final words for Romney’s propensity for blunders. There’s "mittastrophe" — a major event or occasion designed to impress that has the exact opposite effect. And a philosophical reader urged us all to realize that in a complex world, “Mitt happens, and sometimes Mitt hits the fan.”

1. mittwits!

mittiotic!

LOVE IT!!!

For all your money, mitty, it still sucks to be you! And I have NO interest in paying more taxes so you can pay less. PARTICULARLY since guys like you can WELL afford to pay more. And in your case, MUCH more.

3. Excellent, Sir

What people have been moved to laugh at, they can almost never be moved to take seriously again.

"Romney loves America like a tick loves a dog."
