Chances are, the last time you saw Mitt Romney it was when he was on TV giving his concession speech or, days later, when a photo of the disheveled looking former presidential candidate was snapped as he pumped his own gas. This, it seemed, is what it looks like when someone’s political career is over. When they don’t care anymore if their hair is perfect, if their face is stuck in a perma-grin, or if they’re stuck doing menial chores that they wouldn’t have had to do as leader of the free world.… [Read more]

Mitt Romney’s response to most questions — even when it seems that he has given an answer:
“There ain’t no answer.… [Read more]
Though you behave as though you’re forthright, you seem to have so much to hide, Mitt Romney. It’s the secrecy…it’s the double-talk….it’s the evasiveness. We don’t know who you are — and, unfortunately, the things we DO know are things that help us to understand why even your own base doesn’t like or trust you that much. … [Read more]
The GOP’s South Carolina primaries take place on Saturday, January 21st. It’s the third primary but first in the south — a fact that is not lost on the candidates. *Fanning myself* Mmmmm…. I can smell it in the air. All of that evangelical Christian bible belt social conservatism tradition steeped in hospitable mendacity and intolerance….*breathing deeply* Aaaahhh…Dixie.… [Read more]
