Romney is going the Kardashian route, shows up at Pacquiao-Marquez fight




I noted that Romney seemed to be getting a visceral ego boost at the end of the campaign loving the adulation and forcing the campaign to schedule a bunch of unnecessary campaign appearances on election day just so he could stand in front of now adoring crowds.

Now he shows up at the Pacquiao-Marquez fight.

Having never gone to any sporting events till now, let alone a highly publicized fight he now shows up and coincidentally gets a seat that is in direct line of sight opposite the main camera.

So now he apparently is going to pitch himself as a permanent political celebrity.

This is ultimately good news for us and bad for the Republicans as he will be the continual iconic reminder of the baseless war on the 47%. Next up? Maybe Mitt could get front row in a Brittney Spears concert or a Lindsay Lohan bond hearing.

7. Those riveting Romney family games of tag team charades might be a hard sell.

The Palins made for good trash TV...because like the Kards they are...trash.

There is no amount of money in the world that can buy an ounce of class.

Never watched those shows, but I do understand the appeal of human trainwrecks.

The Romney's are just boring.

They are also rude and classless, but they are cursed with doing it in a very boring way.

8. How fast would Mitt faceplant on that Wipeout show?

And you know Obama would best him. But neither the secret service or Michelle would let him play.

9. What's really funny, is the odd remark he made to the eventual loser.....

"Hello Manny. I ran for president. I lost," Romney told the fighter"".......and then Manny Pacquiao lost to Marquez!!! By a 6th round knockout!! I find that funny. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/boxing/2012/12/09/manny-pacquiao-juan-manuel-marquez-fourth-fight-mgm-grand/1756141/

10. That's one way to project your urge to hurt others

They both look like they really hate what they're seeing or really, really get off on it.

I am not a boxing fan.

15. Next they'll be contestants on "The Amazing Race."

Or make a guest appearance on Honey Boo Boo. That would rock.

16. Lesson for Manny

Don't let a loser visit you before you fight. The (Loser) Stench doesn't rub off.
