1. What also helps MA is that we are about to toss our Prince of Darkness over the side
Mitt the Shitt "Big Love" Romney is soon to never darken our guest towels again, the baaaaaastid.

He can take his carpetbag and get his pointed little ass back to Utah.

The guy is a mean, nasty person and crazy as a bedbug....maybe he was brainwashed*** like his daddy (who was way smarter than Mitt will ever be...!)

***History lesson, here: ...Reporters pressed Romney repeatedly to explain his ever-evolving and often confusing position on military involvement in Vietnam, which he had strongly supported after a visit to South Vietnam in 1965 but later declared a tragic mistake. Polls showed his lead fading.

So, during that August interview, when he was asked to explain his inconsistent position on the war, Romney replied, "Well, you know, when I came back from Vietnam, I had just had the greatest brainwashing that anybody can get."

There, he said it. One word, brainwashing, and his presidential campaign would never recover. Worse, that one politically charged word became not just the shorthand for his aborted White House run, but the bumper sticker for his entire life's work. Forget the poor boy who rose, Horatio Alger-style, to national acclaim. Forget the visionary of Detroit, who successfully championed the compact car over what he termed "gas-guzzling dinosaurs." Forget the straight-talking politician who steered Michigan government from financial ruin and pushed through a new state constitution. In the four decades since that interview, there has been a Pavlovian response to the American political trivia question, "Who was George Romney?" Answer: The brainwashed guy.

There's no taking it back.... /

Video footage at link above, as well.
