Who, exactly, are these 47% Romney is referring to? There are two answers: the statistical 47% that lead to that oft-repeated soundbite, and the 47% Romney is actually referring to.
Ta-Nehisi Coates shared this quote from Lee Atwater describing “the Southern Strategy” on his blog today. The quote was first published anonymously, then later attributed [...]
Mitt Romney, wh0 should really just stay the Hell away from talking to, at, or about brown people (especially the small ones – they clearly make him super uncomfortable), is at it again. This time, in Israel.
C’mon, you knew this wouldn’t end well.
Mitt The Awkward Weirdo (I [...]
On the heels of the suggestion made by a campaign aide that Mitt would help restore “Anglo-Saxon relations” (met with confusion and derisive giggles on both sides of the ocean), the man himself has apparently garnered the ire of many in the UK after comments he made about London’s preparation for the Olympic games.
Mitt Romney spoke to the NAACP and it went down about as well as you’d expect for a guy who looks and talks like the white villain in a black 90s comedy.
For what it’s worth, he did much better the first time he ran for President:
“President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob,” said the former senator from Pennsylvania. “There are good, decent men and women who go out and work hard every day and put their skills to test that aren’t taught by some liberal college professor to try to indoctrinate [...]
I expect a lot of debate over whether this guy is crazy or simply playing it. My vote is for the latter. He’s too concise, specific, and absolutely dead on with his use of absurdity as satire for this to be crazy. Particularly the bit about ponies, which is actually almost verbatim the talking [...]

Oh my God, you guys, 2011 is almost over and I have RESOLUTIONS!
“But resolutions are an empty gesture meant for glad-handing in an echo chamber. Real people who want to change don’t wait for blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah, blah blah blah.”

I’ve written in the past that Rick Perry was George W. Bush but without the charm or charisma. I was, admittedly, being far too kind to the man who has had more work done on his face than all four Presidents on Mount Rushmore combined. I was relieved to see, though, that the [...]
Let’s talk about Newt Gingrich, the alleged intellectual who has inconceivably risen towards to top of the field for the GOP nomination in 2012, despite being about twenty years past his expiration date for relevance and integrity.
Gingrich has been positioned as a “thinking man’s candidate” amidst a field consisting of bigots, caricatures, and charlatans [...]
