Chairs are people, too, my friend!!

Even with a screwed-up computer, you didn’t think I could pass up commenting on the Rethuglican National Convention, did you, kids?  How hilarious was it that Clint Eastwood’s chair was less wooden that Mittsie?

From the Chicago Tribune:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Months of careful planning for the Republican National Convention were hijacked by actor Clint Eastwood as traditional and social media erupted in a frenzy of scratched heads and parodies that experts said largely overshadowed presidential contender Mitt Romney’s moment in the spotlight.

Eastwood’s rambling, unscripted address at Thursday’s convention to an absent President Barack Obama in an empty chair inspired an instant satirical Twitter account, @InvisibleObama, that quickly went viral, demonstrating the power of social media to upset tightly scripted image control.

Bloodsuckers

Hey kids!  I’m poking my head out of the computer/carpal tunnel doldrums rabbit hole.  How could I not post something now that Mitt Romney has selected his running mate?  I’m still having massive computer problems (it turns off constantly with no warning whatsoever), so I figured I’d dust off some old posters that are once again relevant.  Let’s begin with the new team, Mittsie and Eddie Munster Paul Ryan…

Hole-y War

Mitt Romney took time out from driving his numerous cars to try to remmber what his rock-solid convictions are when it comes to women’s rights. Good thing that his new BFF, Ron Paul who is scared shitless that his worthless son, Rand, might move home if he doesn’t stay employed, was on hand to remind Mittsie that the conservative stance is that contraception is immoral.

Missionary Reposition

From The Telegraph:

It was a rare reflection by Mitt Romney on his life as a young Mormon, offered as proof to struggling Americans that despite being born into privilege and amassing a $250 million fortune, he too had known hard times.

A day after being labelled “out of touch” for casually offering a $10,000 bet to a rival candidate, Mr Romney told supporters he had experienced austerity as a missionary in France, using a bucket for a lavatory and a hose for a shower. “You’re not living high on the hog at that kind of level,” he said.

But the Republican presidential hopeful spent a significant portion of his 30-month mission in a Paris mansion described by fellow American missionaries to The Daily Telegraph as “palace”. It featured stained glass windows, chandeliers, and an extensive art collection. It was staffed by two servants – a Spanish chef and a houseboy.
