Quotable: The Spouse ALWAYS Knows ...

ANN ROMNEY ASKED WHAT HER BIGGEST WORRY WOULD BE IF MITT IS ELECTED: "I think my biggest concern obviously would just be for his mental well-being ...I have all the confidence in the world in his ability BLAH-BLAH-BLAH ... So for me I think it would just be the emotional part of it."

I'LL SAY. You and the American people, both, Ann. The Media SHAMEFULLY isn't talking about it — except for Mike Papantonio, Thom Hartmann, and Maddowblogger Steve Benen a ... teenie-tiny-teenie little bit, as Rachel would say; and that's about it. Clearly, the "free press" is only as "free" as a directive (the proverbial 'memo') from corporate headquarters. Shame on ALL of you who have remained silent about Mitt's mental state.

But Ann Romney, who's not as crazy as her husband, is the loyal wife who KNOWS Mitt is a sociopath. Mike Papantonio, my kind of fearless Southern liberal who's litigated dozens of cases involving sociopathic personalities, makes no bones about it. And Thom Hartmann, the vegan progressive, who thinks we can reason with these ratbastards that he calls "whackadoodles" (not my kind of adjective for evil incarnate), has raised the issue of Romney's sociopathy in learned, interesting ways. Finally, Steve Benen noted the obvious: Mitt is "projecting" when he does his outrageous rubber-glue routine accusing the President of lying.

But silence from Rachel, Big Eddie (who was careful to put Benen's descriptor in quotes), Lawrence, and Chris, except very tangentially. Double SHAME on ALL of you! Ever noticed how Romney's face is an expressionless mask when asked a question? No emotion whatsoever, except for the ever-present right upper lip curl. It's like the face of someone who suffered a facial paralysis stroke. Very creepy.

Mitt Romney, 'Man of The People': Yatch Parking Valet to His Billionaire Buddies ...

AS I SAID, FOLKS, YOU JUST CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP! WATCH at minute 5:00 as billionaire hotelier Bill Marriott describes how Mitt rescued his yatch from, I don't know, Big Eddie out fishing on his working class boat (?), and safely parked it away from the boating peons denied access to  their 1 percenters yatch club:

The D'OH Media Survey: Guess Whose Audience Is Best Informed?


MOST INFORMED OF ALL cable news audiences quizzed on current events: Rachel Maddow audience.

LEAST INFORMED OF ALL cable news audiences quizzed on current events: D'OH! (TRANS: FOX 'News' audience.)

The New SNL Obama Sucks BIG-TIME

IT'S UNBELIEVABLE, AFTER ALL THIS ACCUMULATED EXPERIENCE, LORNE MICHAELS can't make a decent casting decision. (Well, maybe not. The dude doesn't impress as a creative genius, so perhaps he's the figurehead who makes all the bad calls, because he can.) It's terrible; in the comedy stand-up skit, he does some unrecognizable 'gangsta' Obama; and in the SNL skit, please, where's the winning smile, the gestures are wrong, and the President doesn't walk around with an in-your-face scowl, pursing his lips. It's a crude, stupid, politically unsophisticated impression, unworthy of SNL. Bring back Fred Armisen, or hire this guy: (P.S., 'white guy' Bill Press ... WTF's wrong with you?)

Samuel L. Jackson: WAKE THE F**K UP!


Team Obama's Stinging Jab, Crushing Left Hook, And Right To Mitt's Glass Jaw

DEVASTATING OBAMA ADS USE ROMNEY'S OWN WORDS TO SLAM HIM ON TAXES, expressed disdain for America's working poor, the forgotten 47 percent:

Bain "Harvesting" Video Found: Mr. Soylent Green?!

CRUSADING LIBERAL MAGAZINE MOTHER JONES HAS UNEARTHED a disturbing Romney/Bain Capital video, in which 'Mitt The Madman Twit' describes their investment as "harvesting" companies (HINT: Mitt Romney said it, "corporations are people, my friend."):

Here, the TRUTH about Bain Capital's "HARVEST" is REVEALED. OH MY:

Memo To Big Eddie: Don't Let Your Numbers Get To Your Head ...

THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS "EDHEADS" AMONG YOUR PROGRESSIVE LISTENERS. We're free-thinking individuals, so stop comparing us to the brain-dead wingnuts on the Dark Side. I could say more, but I'll keep it to myself. Suffice it to say, it would be nice if you let your guests finish a sentence every once in a while.

Yeah I know, I'm in a piss-poor mood at what little there is of the progressive media, especially when you so easily let success get to your heads and don't even acknowledge who it was put you there in the first place. Y'all know what I'm talking about.

C'mon Rachel ... You Can SAY IT!

WHAT'S A DUDE WHO CAN'T TELL FANTASY FROM REALITY, IS A CHRONIC, PATHOLOGICAL LIAR, says inappropriate things, is widely considered to lack empathy? ANS: Mentally ill, neurotic for sure. More than likely a sociopathic personality. Okay, so if you are constrained/censored from this vitally informed speculation, or what Chris likes to say "important" psycho-babble, then bring someone onto the segment who is professionally competent to evaluate Mitt Romney's pattern of pathological LIES, like a BOARD-CERTIFIED PSYCHIATRIST!

But Rachel, please, don't give us this BULLSHIT, "what seems to be happening here ... in the moment, he just says what he thinks we want to hear, even if it's not really his position, or he can't remember what his position's supposed to be, or if it's not really what he believes, whatever you heard him say, he didn't really say that" ... C'mon Rachel. Stop beating about the bush, insulting our intelligence. This man is ODIOUS, DESPICABLE, REPULSIVE, MENTALLY ILL. And Rachel, it's NOT funny. Somebody in Media ought to seriously address the man's MENTAL STABILITY AND CAPACITY TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES:


Signs of The Times: Bullies Lose, Unions Win, And Everyone Loves A Winner

THE ROMNEY-ITE NFL SCAB-BAG EXECUTIVE VEEP OF FOOTBALL SAID AT THE TIME OF THE REFEREE LOCKOUT, "You've never paid for an NFL ticket to watch somebody officiate a game." As the Nation's sports editor remarked, this one ranks right up there with "Helluva job, Brownie." Well, after the disaster that robbed the Packers of a victory in the last play of SCAB REFEREED FOOTBALL, the NFL ROMNEY-ITE owners caved like the SCAB-BAG schoolyard billionaire bullies they are: They gave the locked-out UNION referees EVERYTHING they'd been asking for, and then some. It was a drop in the bucket for a multi-billion dollar industry, specifically, about $3.2 million out of a $9 billion enterprise, or the cost of a Super Bowl ad. So much for naked SCAB-BAG OWNER GREED.

Consider this: The NFL is not CENTRAL or FUNDAMENTAL to our lives. The NFL referees union does not rise to the level of importance to society that our teachers, firefighters, police officers, nurses, first responders, do. But the principle is the same. We, as a society, pay for the modest cost of educating our children, keeping our streets safe and clean, for professional firefighters and emergency responders, and for essential quality of life issues, without relegating them to the lowest common denominator of privatization and naked, unfettered GREED. It's our choice. Union salaries and benefits are an infinitesimal amount of what unions have done for ALL of us.

Unions gave us the 40-hour work week, the weekend, anti-child labor laws, workplace safety rules, the minimum wage, smaller class sizes and fair distribution of resources among rich and poor school districts, and public safety rules that benefit all of us. No teacher or police officer or firefighter has ever risen, on their salary, to become a billionaire captain of industry or SCAB-BAG NFL OWNER. But their living wages and benefits were the impetus for the creation of the world's greatest middle class, a rising tide of prosperity and a social compact through more than a half century which enabled the GREEDY BASTARDS who didn't build any of it to amass fabulous fortunes, and then through sheer unadulterated GREED ("when is enough ENOUGH!" bellowed Senator Ted Kennedy, in righteous fury) dragging us back to the Gilded Age of the 1900s Robber Barons, shattering our social compact.

The principle is the same. The NFL bluster was one serious player injury away from complete catastrophe. They screwed their "brand" enough with Vegas alone, one call costing bettors a reported $250 million, not to speak of 70,000 angry fan call-ins, and players threatening to revolt and donate the proceeds of any fines to the referees. And so the SCAB-BAG GREEDY BASTARD NFL OWNERS caved like a house of cards. The Repugnant hypocrisy of UNION BUSTERS Paul Ryan and Scott Walker, calling for a return of the UNION REFS, hardly raised an eyebrow in the Beltway/MSM Media. Yet the principle remains the same: Unfettered GREED and the lowest common denominator of NO STANDARDS AND QUALITY of, for, and by the GREEDY BILLIONAIRE RATBASTARDS in exchange for crushing another union, versus the INTEGRITY AND QUALITY OF THE GAME, DEMANDED BY THE PEOPLE.

WE, THE PEOPLE are still in charge. PEOPLE are beginning to catch on.

P.S. Wouldn't you know it: Democratic Super Pacs are beginning to get seed funding from good guy White Knight millionaire and billionaire donors that had previously gone to the Repug Karl Rove gangster Super Pac from adoptive Chinaman billionaire, casino mogul Sheldon Adelson among other criminal types and foreigners who stay in the shadows. Everyone loves a winner, and the bad guys, it seems, are jumping off the Romney Titanic.

Memo To The DNC, Obama Team: The ONLY Way Romney Wins Is A Stolen Election!

IS ANYONE MINDING THE STORE AT DNC HIGH COMMAND REGARDING VOTER SUPPRESSION LAWS?! The ONLY way Mitt Romney can realistically STEAL this election is if the VOTER SUPPRESSION LAWS in Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada, and a host of other states throw so many roadblocks to voting by Democratic constituencies — African Americans, the poor, the elderly, Latinos — that they will have successfully depressed turnout with a 21st century version of Jim Crow. There are reports that GOP states' voter suppression may keep as many as 10 MILLION LATINO VOTERS from the polls and provide the margin of victory in key states.


AND RACHEL: I'M FED UP WITH YOU reporting these voter suppression HORROR STORIES night after night WITHOUT ANY COUNTERVAILING, PROACTIVE FOCUS ON URGENT SOLUTIONS! I swear, you have the most KAFKAESQUE, DEPRESSING PROGRESSIVE PROGRAM OF ALL. You even seem to enjoy tormenting your audience. How about trying to balance the right wing horror stories with some DEM PUSHBACK, hard questions for the Dems, even if it's to read them the Riot Act?!

Quotable: Paulie's Randian Contempt For Romney Revealed: "THE STENCH"

OUCH! I GUESS AYN RAND'S "SECOND-RATERS" ARE RESERVED FOR the "STENCH" CAMPAIGN STAFF ... From POLITICO's Roger Simon come these delicious statements of total Objectivist DERISION and VIRULENT CONTEMPT from Mitt Romney's Galtian running 'shotgun marriage' mate, chafing at being the "STENCH" second banana.

Here's 'Paulie Munster' Ryan BEING RYAN:
Reportedly, he has been marching around his campaign bus, saying things like, “If STENCH calls, take a message” and “Tell STENCH I’m having finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan and will text him later.” [...]

The Romney campaign was furious (with one of Ryan’s Powerpoint presentations). But Ryan reportedly said, “Let Ryan be Ryan and let the STENCH be the STENCH.”
In This Astonishing METAMORPHOSIS, Ryan The MUNSTER Cannot Contain His FERAL Disdain For 'Mitt The MADMAN Twit', i.e. "STENCH."

For Those Who Still Can't Believe What The Madman Said ...

RACHEL HAS THE VIDEO! Yes, it's true, this imbecile is SO IGNORANT of BASIC aerospace science that he would presume to make decisions about the FAA (that's Federal Aviation Administration) and is a twitchy finger away from the proverbial nuclear button. As President Obama said, "If Mr. Romney wants to start another war, he should say so." On the other hand, Mitt knows ALL ABOUT interplanetary travel to the planet Kolob on the wings of WHITE Mormonic harp-playing angels ... By the way, Mitt, there's very little oxygen at a passenger plane's cruising altitude of 30,000 feet; and NO ONE says "aircraft" — it's "PLANE" to the rest of us with knowledge of BASIC science. Here's a brief primer, you fucking MORON:
Humans can survive for weeks without food; days without water; however, we can only survive for minutes without oxygen. While the percentage of oxygen in the atmosphere remains fairly constant up to 70,000 feet, the available amount of oxygen to sustain mental and physical alertness decreases above 10,000 feet. The atmosphere is primarily nitrogen (78%) with oxygen comprising 20.9 percent of the atmosphere.

The atmosphere is generally considered to exist up to 100,000 feet (above this altitude the atmosphere is virtually a vacuum until reaching outer space). One-half of the atmosphere is contained from 18,000 feet to the earth's surface (the other 50 percent is from 18,000 feet to 100,000 feet). At sea level, the pressure of the atmosphere is 14.7 pounds per square inch (psi). At 18,000 feet the pressure is 7.34 psi. By 34,000 feet, the pressure is reduced to one-half the value at the 18,000 foot level (3.62 psi). It is this reduction in pressure (or in other words, the less dense air) that causes hypoxia.

Hypoxia is the effects of an insufficient supply of oxygen to the body. Every person can have different symptoms when suffering from hypoxia (U.S. Air Force aircrews are required to take an altitude chamber ride every three years to reinforce and identify their hypoxic symptoms). Some of the common symptoms are: lightheaded sensation, dizziness, reduced vision, and euphoria.

Mitt Romney's Slow Descent Into Madness, Quote By INSANE Quote

EXHIBIT ONE: "When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous."

The Daily Kos schools Mitt the Madman on the loss of cabin pressure:

Meanwhile, the GOP High Command implements an emergency solution: Muzzle the Madman.

EXHIBIT TWO (from the NYT): As Mr. Romney headed to an evening fund-raiser in West Palm Beach, Fla., a reporter asked if he would be campaigning more extensively.

“Ha, ha. We’re in the stretch, aren’t we?” Mr. Romney said before promptly changing the subject and pointing to the sky. “Look at those clouds. It’s beautiful. Look at those things.” ~  The Madman running for president (naturally) on the Republican ticket.

Duchess St. Rollins' Daily Affirmation: A Letter To Mitt Romney

THERE'S A LATINO SAYING ABOUT PEOPLE OF MITT ROMNEY'S PECULIAR, AND TRULY FRIGHTENING CHARACTER FLAWS: "NO TIENE VERGUENZA EN LA CARA!" This literally means, "He has NO SHAME ON HIS FACE!" The examples of Mitt Romney's bald-faced LIES are legion. And they raise some very disturbing questions. The first one is, "Who is this dude; what does he stand for, what does he believe in?!" The answer we've discovered is, NOTHING, except his family and religion. Which raises even more disturbing questions that just won't go away: The uneasy sense that this individual may believe he is divinely inspired, and anointed by God to be President.

From Romney's perspective, his entire life could be seen as divinely inspired; everything he touched turned to gold and riches for him; his mother told him as a child he was the "special" one; and there's a sense of divine inspiration, a secretive "specialness" in his religion, which includes the so-called "White Horse Prophecy" that the Constitution will one day "hang like a thread" and will be saved "by the efforts of the White Horse." Publicly, Mormons distance themselves from it ... but what would you expect them to say? This is much more dangerous and specific that their nonsense about Native Americans being a "lost tribe" of Israel, and all those planets they're supposed to be awarded to commune with God on his special planet named Kolob. This would explain the drift of his campaign; the statement that there will never be a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian issue, a stunning departure from established U.S. foreign policy through successive Republican and Democratic administrations; and Ann Romney trying to silence, or censor, critics from their own party by saying:
"STOP IT! This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring." She explained: "This is hard and, you know, it's an important thing that we're doing right now and it's an important election and it is time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt's qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country."
Aww ... Paging Jesus Christ, or the next BEST thing, Mitt Romney?! Really??? This lady is some kind of delusional. And it's just not about playing the traditional wifey role, standin' by her man. This is the bottom line folks: We know next to nothing about Mitt Romney, what motivates him, and why he has been running for president longer than most modern candidates, except Ron Paul. The Paul crusade has been much more open about its libertarian principles. I may not agree, but I can understand deeply-held policy beliefs. Romney, by contrast, is a REALLY weird cat, disconnected from reality and, by his own admission, half of America (the REAL figure is 99%), who says strange, inappropriate things which his staff then shrugs off as "humor." The other night Rachel quoted another weird evasive Romney reply to a reporter's question, which made no sense whatsoever. Unless viewed through a divine inspiration lens.

The bottom line, folks, is the more we know about Mitt Romney, the more uneasy we become. Does Mitt Romney believe he is the "White Horse" of Mormon prophecy anointed by God to save America? It's time the media ask more probing questions in this vein, and stop regarding religious beliefs as out of bounds. Thomas Jefferson warned of the dangers of a theocracy. If anything, with the rise of religious fundamentalism worldwide, including among Christian sects, the danger is more elevated today. Personally, I believe the man is a delusional sociopath, who lacks the essential quality that makes us human and spiritually whole, which is empathy. In a word, Mitt Romney is — dangerous.

Here's the inimitable Duchess St. Rollins, with more:

After seeing the video that began floating around the Internet yesterday of Mitt Romney at the private fundraiser being an uncensored ass cannon, all I can say is WOW! Okay, I’m lying, that’s not all I can say. I think a brand new letter is in order.

Dear Mitt Romney,

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for finally letting us see the real you!

“I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”Mitt Romney on 47% of Americans at a private fundraiser in 2012

Let me begin by saying what many belonging to the 47% of us to which you were referring would like to express:

GO FUCK YOURSELF you snide, narcissistic, self-important PRICK!

You have no fucking CLUE how hard life can really be, but let me enlighten you with a list of things you’ve never had to experience–things that many of us who work our asses off for the peanuts sociopaths like you so generously offer have had to go through. You just sit there like an idiot and nod–you’re good at that.

• The crushing despair of sobbing uncontrollably because you were served with an eviction notice after your husband was laid off and you honestly don’t know if you and your children will be homeless at the end of the week

• The sheer desperation of getting down on your knees and begging God to please let the power company forget about your shut-off notice the next day because your son is running a high fever, it’s 100 degrees outside and your boss didn’t pay you for the overtime you worked

• The unrelenting defeat of working for a company for 20 years only to have them outsource your job so that those at the top can earn a few more bucks, leaving you unemployed and middle aged with no idea how to support your family

• The gnawing fear of using the last bit of food in your home to make a bread and mayonnaise sandwich for the third night in a row because you’re blind or otherwise majorly disabled and your Social Security Disability check is late

• The overwhelming rage of coming back from a war only to find out your home is being foreclosed on by a cruel and heartless bank that could give a shit less you are the one risking his or her life so that the greedy bastards can live in a free country

• The all-consuming sadness of being a child living in a home devoid of hope or the resources to help you succeed

• The undeserved shame of being an elderly American who worked hard and paid taxes your entire life, but now has to use Food Stamps because the Social Security benefits you were promised aren’t enough

• The maddening frustration of working 40+ hours a week at a grueling and brain-numbingly repetitious job and still not being able to make ends meet or take care of your family

In the chart above, “Low Income” means your income falls below $26,400 a year for a family of four. You probably have toilets that cost more than that, Mittens. Shouldn’t our real concern as a nation be that so many people don’t make enough fucking money to pay income taxes and not this “the sky is falling” bullshit about how they aren’t contributing? What part of they are too poor to pay them don’t you evil fucks understand?

These are the real people behind the 47% of Americans you seem to think are just too lazy or lack the tenacity to be successful, you fucking arrogant pool of douche dribble. These are genuine, and in many cases, extremely hardworking people who struggle and strive to have just a taste of what you were lucky enough to be born into. I know, I know….you supposedly gave all your inheritance away and so we’re supposed to believe you’re a self-made man. Bull fucking shit, Mittens. Unless you gave away your stable childhood, supportive family, amazing education and your daddy’s Rolodex you did NOT do it all on your own. Like I already told your twat of a wife, if you would exhibit some fucking HUMILITY and admit that, the rest of us might not be quite so revolted by the two of you.

Regardless of what you or the cock weasels who will predictably leave comments claiming otherwise think, we’re not envious of your wealth. We don’t want to deprive you of your trinkets or gigantic piles of cash–although, admittedly many of us wonder how some can justify such luxuries as a car elevator when there are children literally starving to death in the world–we understand that those are your choices to make. No, we’re not jealous, Mr. Romney–just appalled at your nauseating conceit and smug lack of compassion. Maybe losing this election will cut you down to size.


Americans Not Too Stupid to Believe Your Bullshit (aka, the smart people)

P.S. The 47% of which you speak aren’t all Democrats, you stupid pompous fuck.

P.P.S. 91% of people that get “entitlements” are disabled, elderly or WORKING and a measly 5% of the federal budget is spent on the NON-WORKING poor…and fuck you.
