Oh yeah, "President-Elect Romney" will be coming to my kid's HS tomorrow.

The joke is, I'm not kidding. In the e-mail they sent out to the parents, they referred to him as "President-Elect Romney".

Uh . . . don't you have to, you know, actually WIN a presidency before you can be a "President-Elect"?

An -elect is a political candidate who has been elected to an office but who has not yet been sworn in or officially taken office. These may include an incoming president, senator, representative, governor and mayor.


Oh, that's right, you DO.

Asshats.

understandable, coming from the Rmoney campaign. if it's from the school, maybe Ann Rmoney's right and we should scrap the whole system.

6. Canceled event in NOVA was called a 'victory' rally.

They believe that confidence will make it reality.

10. Why is a campaign event being held in a school?

Is this a public school? Are the students required to attend? If so, I'd be raising hell with the school board.

He'll be getting some nice shitty weather for sure.
