Obviously Romney's letting himself go...mussed hair, rumpled shirt. Obviously, he needs a valet, which he can well afford.

I think it's got to be worse than bored. If Mitt had not been forced to pander so aggressively to the same lunatics who are now blaming him for losing the election, he'd have had a much better chance at winning. At the same time, that pandering completely lost him the respect of anyone in the Democratic Party who might have been willing to give him a pass. He cannot be happy about that -- whether he blames himself for being willing to play the game, the crazies for demanding that he play the game, or the rest of us for being so offended at his pandering ("for gosh sakes, I'm just pandering to the crazies, why do you have to take it so seriously"), who can tell? (I'm being as nice as I possibly can -- it's an objectively good thing that someone so willing to live in an alternate-reality bubble lost the election. I want an informed president, not a clueless one.)

All-in-all, his candidacy was a tremendous waste, of money, time, and goodwill; it even wasted the chance for the Republicans to have the educational experience of watching a True Believer like Santorum get pounded into the dust in the general election.

Thanks for the Townsend clip! We saw The Who Sunday night, it was an amazing show.

Eh, Romney is back to doing what he does best: Oppressing lower castes from the executive offices.


If he'd moved a ways up the coast to Oregon he wouldn't have to (or be allowed to) pump his own gas. Which is better given the rain.

Aw, "poor" Willard and Ann...guess they even think their pain is somehow superior to the rest of us.

Interesting article on PBJ -- he's certainly been in the spotlight lately, but I still think he fades, and probably long before getting to the home stretch. I've mentioned this before in comments, but to repeat, I think he becomes Health and Human Services Secretary if a Repug wins in 2016, god forbid...

I'm so over the Mittster ... btw, if that's a "full head of hair" I'm Chuck Norris's stunt double...look at that "widow's peak". Dude is comb-overing like nobody's business.

Now somebody explain to me, please, why the gods of rock music all spend time in rehab?

at least dole, GHWB, + mccant had a foreshadowing. these 2 thought they were gonna win. the bubble popping was a thunderbolt.


tho i cpould have seen his hope slipping away at the 3rd debate......

Is there a lost sled named "Rosebud" in all this?
