Mittsie’s campaign was wilting on the vine, and they decided to wake things up with a bold choice to liven things up.

So, how’s that workin’ out for them? From POLITICS NOW at the Los Angeles Times:

Two more national polls out Wednesday confirm what scattered early data had suggested — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is not seeing much of a boost in the opinion polls as a result of his pick of a running mate.

And a poll of battleground states also showed very limited movement, with Romney gaining a little ground in Ohio and Virginia, but losing some in Florida and Colorado.


The latest national data come from two polls that have generally shown more favorable numbers for Romney than most — Gallup’s tracking poll, and the Economist/YouGov survey. Both polls show that Romney’s choice of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as a running mate has had little or no effecct on the race so far.

    nonnie! is you! i miss you so much!

  2. kids, so sorry for not posting last night. i forgot that i had to go somewhere, and when i got home, the computer was being an asshole. it took forever to make the poster, because i had to save everything every few minutes in case the computer shut itself down, but i saw the dvd cover, and i couldn’t wait any longer to use it.

  3. Hey, no problems. Like I said, the most important thing is you’re back! Wish I was closer to you, I’d drop by and get that PC whipped into shape, or know the reason why!
    And I must admit to being a BIT squeamish about your appropriation of the Rolls-Royce badge, but since it’s a BMW these days, I’ll let it slide this time. I’ll see if I can come up with a good insult based on some foreign cars – like maybe Peugeot and Citroen, before they go the way of Pontiac and Hudson! 😀

    • hey john! i think the problem with the computer is some super-duper power surge thingamajig my son put in it. it’s almost certain that it’s a hardware thing. oh well, it’s better than no computer at all, right?

      how about some saab jokes? we can spell it SOB. it’s pronounced the same! 😆

      • Careful, Saab is the zombie of the auto world. Their owners (Spyker) are trying to sue GM for … well … dicking around and not striking a deal, to put it in plain English. We may see Saabs again in our lifetime! Now if you can work a Saab Zombie/Rob Zombie joke, you can have all the credit!

  4. nonnie, the art work if wonderful. love the beaker of Ayn.

    Those two men are indeed frightening..As always,a lovely poster.

    • they aren’t as frightening as the fact that people would actually vote for them simply because they can’t stand the fact that the guy in the oval office isn’t lily white.

  6. Ah, I’ve missed that sword you wield! And it will be an interesting time, won’t it!

  7. The mainstream media is determined to convince America the race is close and there are at least 6 battleground states. Of course, the reality is, they must do this because it’s job security. What else will those stupid panels of talking heads yap and yap and yap about if viewers had access to the internal polling? The all-important internals show 13% Willard and his wife, Queen Ann of Rafalca, don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell, or in Salt Lake City, of unseating President Obama and Vice President Biden.

    • hello christopher!! D queen ann of rafalca! 😆 i love it!!!

      i heard last night that the election really comes down to a handful of counties. that’s why the rethugs are trying so hard to suppress the vote. how scary is it that someone like sheldon adelson or the koch brothers could buy up all the advertising slots in order to get their boys elected?

      • Hi Nonnie,

        It’s so odd about Queen Ann of Rafalca. I should like her. I mean, she comes from poverty, survived cancer and is living with a perfectly awful, incurable disease — MS. All of this should make her human but, she reminds me of another, horrible Repug shrew who pranced around and acted like her shit didn’t stink: Nancy ‘Monkey Salad’ Reagan. Queen Ann of Rafalca’s “you people” sealed the deal for me.

        • from what i’ve read, she didn’t come from poverty. even so, you’d think that breast cancer and/or ms would teach her a little humanity. instead, she doesn’t really give a damn about anyone else being able to be treated as long as she has her friggin’ horses and the best health care money can buy. of course, i disliked her when i found out she disrespected her dead atheist father enough to baptize him as a mormon posthumously.

    Great poster! Now just need to rewrite the lyrics to Monster Mash…

    From my laboratory in the castle east
    To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
    The ghouls all came with a gaudy stare
    To wipe out Medicare

    Out from his coffin, Drac’s voice did ring
    Seems he was troubled by just one thing
    He opened the lid and shook his fist
    And said, “Whatever happened to the Tax Cuts for the Rich?”

    The scene was rockin’, all were digging the sounds
    GOP on chains, backed by his baying hounds
    The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
    With their vocal group, “The Koch Brothers jive”

  10. Wowzers! Nothing like a shit head election with shithead caqndidtates to get the fur flying…. hope the ‘puter gets better soon

    paul ryan is sarah palin with good abs and a less screechy voice. it still amazes me that people would rather see the rich get more, lose their medicare and have every govt program taken away rather than have the “ethnic” guy in the white house. sometimes i think – lets elect all the douchebag republicans and lets see how much america likes it

    love the poster — now that Ayn Rand has taken center stage – it seems that the assholes um i mean republicans need to dig up TWO of their idols to prance around Tampa

  12. Nonnie –

    I missed you terribly (I do most things terribly as you know), but I feel a sense of calm now that you are back.



  13. Mitt’s head with his eyes looking up at Ryan? I’m going to be seeing that in my dreams/nightmares tonight. Thanks. 😉

  14. Welcome back, Nonnie! How I’ve missed your intelligent and witty postings. So glad to see you back in full swing. Love the Ayn Rand head in the test tube bottle. Can hardly wait to see your take on Akin and all the cartoonish behavior of the next 70+ days before the election.

    All the best to you and yours. You have been greatly missed.

    • thank you, dear eleanor. i’ve missed you and the other raisinettes, too. not sure i’m back in full swing. perhaps half swing. 😉

      the rethugs will be an endless source of material. i just wish my computer would stay on long enough for me to work on some posters.

  15. Welcome back, girlfriend! We have ice for your carpels over at our place, but we don’t have any stinkin’ PCs we could give ya. So whip that sucker into shape, stay healthy and stay at it!

  16. BOMBSHELL: Romney Met with Todd Akin’s Dr. Jack Willke During 2012 Campaign

    Mitt Romney met Dr. Jack Willke, the physician behind Rep. Todd Akin’s medically incorrect and controversial views on rape and abortion during the 2012 election campaign and told him they agreed on “almost everything,” Dr. Willke says.

  17. I’d been blogging about Ryan off and on for more than I year before he became the VP nominee. That finally persuaded me that it was Time for a Paul Ryan label.

    I’m calling the EPA. That’s just wrong.
