Will Romney get it if he wins?

Just curious what your thoughts are.

"Hand over the prize , or I drone you."

"I drone you anyway."

A remote controlled plane with rocket launchers and super zoom cameras... It's a juvenile pleasure, you gotta admit, the concept just speaks to the little kid in you.

And couple that with video arcade game controls, sit in an air conditioned bus one thousand miles away.... hey, that's a job worth killing for! Oh, I guess that IS the problem.

So cool, right? Who could resist... you know, we could use some of those in my backyard; where is the equality?

Spaceman Spiff eat your heart out! (although, he was a decidedly hands-on type of pilot/explorer/dinosaur fighter.)

No one has a comment on this?

I see you are still drinking that lake water and sitting out in the sun too long.

I see you still have nothing to say that's of any value.

No one cares... but keep fishing, I mean, you won't know if you don't go; you never know...

Gee, here I thought George Bush Jr. was the biggest, most obvious puppet ruler in modern history. The RNC has really outdone themselves with Mitt Romney. But, you ask a great question... What kind of award do you get when you become the biggest ass clown in the known Universe? Possibly... a statue of a giant golden hand poking out of the ground, seemingly grasping at the setting sun?

Okay... so you're saying you do think he'll win the Nobel if he wins the election?

Maybe his wife? She looks like she might pull off some crazy humanitarian stunt. Those poll very well, you know :)

Yeah, Michelle inspired my garden!

Don't laugh too hard, vegetable gardening is the wave of the future. It's all part of the "let's not poison ourselves to death or go bankrupt" plan, and should appeal to the prepper and the penny pinching group medical insurance buyer in all of us. Basic nutrition and how stuff grows... We, as a country, are working on basic nutrition. Growing vegetables strikes most of us as a fascinating new hobby. <sigh> This systemic reform thing may be trickier than it first appeared.

Anyway... Eat healthy and grow your own vegetables... Pretty worthy thing to promote in this day and age. First lady is a bit of a figurehead job, and it's gotta be a bit like being drafted.

She does have 2 diseases. That always helps. Look how it swung in the John Edwards case. People ended up liking her more than him, and he should be in prison. But hey, those silly facts always seem to get in the way.

Hey look, I play low stakes poker with kinda shady guys. One thing I learned a long time ago is don't take money from anyone named Bunny, male or female. Even if they look like they have spent a lot of time and money trying to give back something positive and tangible to the world, don't put yourself in a situation where you owe a person named Bunny a million dollars. Period. John Edwards broke that rule, and he wound up paying the price. Don't cheat on your dying wife is another time-honored tradition. Don't use campaign funds to hide your mistress, who, I assure you, cannot be hidden from the press and will NEVER stay silent forever. Oh, and there's ALWAYS pictures. Probably nude, dude. These aren't my rules. It's a scorned woman / politician thing. These guidelines were written ages ago, and it's horny male hubris to fly in the face of them. Cavemen knew this stuff, you get me? Which reminds me... If anyone keeps a toothpick in their mouth at all times, it's a dependable sign that you don't want to make a deal. Or, that they eat a lot of corn on the cob. These are just tips that have kept me alive in the badlands of the Midwest...

I think the real problem is one of her diseases is gonna be Marie Antoinette syndrome. Basically, she's a pretty ok person one-on-one, and, you can trust her with your kids for the afternoon (they might enjoy a daytrip to another planet), but... She's just a little out of touch with the average American experience. Thus, she's susceptible to contracting chronic foot-in-mouth disease on top of all her other woes.

In a sense, I figure more power to her, she's living the dream as best she can. But... well... It's just that from the outside, sometimes it looks a little bit like Invasion of the Bodysnatchers. You can't fake that on the national news-- it usually takes very careful scripting and editing to create that disturbing on screen ambiance. Hollywood Producers who are paid... a lot of money... couldn't assemble a cast more perfectly choreographed. It's too consistent. I think it's the real deal.

Anyway, with the proper coaching, and some fortuitous accidents, she does have the personal background to use her position to do something crazy great for... somebody in genuine need. One can hope somebody enlightened behind the scenes realizes that potential and "helps" her use her throne for a grand act of mercy and charity. It could happen.

Then again, maybe one of the kids will go rogue and write a Pulitzer Prize winning tell-all. It might not be all that exciting, though. Bodysnatchers seem to be a pretty tame bunch on a day-to-day basis.

Not silly facts, it's the (D) in front of Johnnie's name!

She's dead Jon. Edwards was cheating on her even as she died of cancer.

Dude, what about Gingrich? Talk about the model for the Witches of Eastwick. Seriously, I'm not casting stones, I'm cracking jokes. I think the personality type required to run for national office almost dictates a higher percentage chance of womanizing. Not to mention the higher percentage of opportunities to meet hot babes to womanize. Sheesh, sailors in foreign ports probably have fewer women casting themselves in their direction. It's the classic man trap, and that's why there's a whole volume of rules (first copied from ancient papyrus scrolls) about how to keep your pants zipped. Cheap trashy motel sex has led to the ruination of a great many politicians, for better or worse.
