THIS IS THE MOST PATHETIC THING IN THE WORLD...

THIS IS THE MOST PATHETIC THING IN THE WORLD...

You don't say that you know you have won four hours before the polls close on Tuesday unless you really, really, really do think you have won:

Felicia Somnez: Nov. 6, 2012 3:38 pm: Mitt Romney moved by surprise show of support in Pennsylvania: MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Mitt Romney walked out of his campaign jet at Pittsburgh International Airport here Tuesday afternoon and was met by an unexpected sight: hundreds upon hundreds of supporters packed into the top and middle levels of a nearby parking garage, cheering the candidate’s arrival. A visibly moved Romney, clad in a white shirt and slacks, stepped into the late afternoon sun and walked across the tarmac to a spot near a metal fence separating him from the supporters in the garage. Press entourage in tow, he waved to the crowd for several moments, saying nothing.

Afterward, a reporter asked Romney how the moment made him feel. “That’s when you know you’re gonna win,” he said as he walked back across the tarmac and into an SUV that carried him off to his second stop of the day...

1. Pathetic, yes, but also foolish and arrogant.

What had gone down by about 10:15 that evening must have been a real kick in the 'nads for poor Mittens. Maybe if he and his campaign had been paying attention to the real numbers instead of assuming that lots of lawn signs and people cheering at campaign events meant it was in the bag.

They'll be writing about this election for years. I can hardly wait for the publication of Game Change II.

3. Well, he didn't say he had won. He was saying that that made it feel like he would win.

Let's be fair. I despise the man too, but that was just an expression of confidence based on a crowd cheering for him.

4. The quote had the word "know" in it...

"Know" actually meant "no"....

5. They could only find 300 hundred Romney supporters in Allegheny County.

Out of 2.5 million who live here.
