Romney now has 47% of the popular vote!

Wikipedia lists the popular vote totals: Obama, 64,880,101 or 50.9%; Romney,
60,482,929 or 47.4%.

47.4 rounds down to 47%. 47 truly is a cosmic number.

3. So sorry

but Romney's old news. Let him slip away and let's concentrate on more current issues like Yertle the Turtle's opposition to fillibuster reform.

6. What is funny is he actually carried the states that had the highest

percentage of people that pay no federal income tax and they are also the states that
receive more federal funds than they pay. So in a way he actually carried the 47% that he
doesn't care about.

7. the ones who couldn't figure out

he was insulting them. There are endless recipients of Medicare and Social Security who complain about "entitlements," with no concept they are shooting themselves in the foot.

8. Yeah, it's permanently tatooed on his head now..

GQ saw fit to award him the least influential person of 2012..

You People are Ecstatic!


GQ magazine awarded the failed White House contender its number one spot on its “Least Influential People of 2012” list. And the gloves are off in the magazine’s description of the ex-Massachusetts governor: the men’s glossy mag writes, “Voting for Romney is like hooking up with the last single person at the bar at 4 a.m.” And that’s not the worst of it: “The only successful thing he did this year was embody every black stand-up comedian’s impression of a white person”/Judy Kurtz, In The Know blog, The Hill. More here. (AP file photo)

9. I love that

The least influential man of 2012 should be on Mitten's tombstone.
