Mittster boxed himself in nicely now

He comes out with an ill-timed, idiotic comment last night way too early and then is surprised when it makes him look like a total buffoon. This morning he doubles down on the idiotic comment to the baffled stares of the press corps following his campaign around.

Why I think he's nicely boxed in:

He knows the comment was stupid, I'm sure someone with a bit of a sense of foreign policy has told him or more likely one of his butlers the reality of it but...

If he actually admitted that his first comment was the ill-timed bit of idiocy that it was he might be able to save a bit of face with the normals but most of them/us have already written him off as a fucking moron and foreign policy dilettante anyway. Actually saying "oops" though would enrage the wacko brigade that is the far right and who feed on anything that makes Obama look bad.

The far right wacko brigade that makes up the majority of the Republican party these days is the only thing keeping Romney in the game at all. If he pisses them off by admitting that an attack on Obama was wrong they're going to stay home and wax one of the cars on their front lawn downing Busch Lite instead of voting in November because they don't really trust his magic underwear religion in any case. That would hurt the down ballot far right Republicans that are the only hope for the party at this point and that's why you're seeing Mitch, the turtle, McConnell and John, the oompa-loompa, Boehner not too happy with him right now.

I love the smell of desperation coming off Romney, it's just as rank as that from McLame/Mooselini in 2008 when they "suspended" the campaign to work on the financial crisis.

Keep up the good work Mitt you fucking asshole.

Keyword Ignore Feature Request - Take My Money

This is a something that I'll pay for. I don't care about advanced search, I don't need any more jury duty calls, I can live with 5 on my blacklist and polls don't float my boat.

If they can come up with a way that would allow me to block posts without ever having see them based on a keyword....hmm lets say Zimmerman this week... I will pony up for a star. If they can add an optional time limit to the ignore so that after a couple of weeks it will quietly go away that would be even better.

I know I can trash the threads but that means I've already seen it and you've got to click that annoying "Are you sure" button and my damned index finger is getting stiff today. At least it no longer takes you to the spot holding all the trashed threads in stasis after you specifically tell it to dump it, was that all the way back in DU2?

Romney Describes Santorum

I picked this off the PunditKitchen part of icanhascheezburger. (on edit: forgot to look for dups hope I'm not the 10th post of this or something)

ABC Poll shows Obama's approval rebounding

it's always been one of the lower polls and it shows him up to 49% from 42% in October.

I agree with the analysis and think we can thank congress for this fortunate turn. Everyone hates them and rightly so.
