I largely agree with this assessment of Mitt Romney.  He seemed normal until he realized everyone else was running to the right on everything.  He followed the pack.  He could have staked out a, “hey I’m a conservative but I’m not tongue-kissing the whack jobs” position that would make him more appealing to independents and possibly conservative democrats who are displeased with President Obama.  Imagine a republican who resists the temptation to launch culture war bombs (sorry Mitch Daniels, it’s not you), criticizes the President on policy, rather than identity (Trump = fail), and refuses to grovel before Rush Limbaugh.  I’ll never understand why someone isn’t trying to claim this ground.


the most important endorsement ever!

Several years ago my husband and I took some family members out to a very fancy hotel for a champagne brunch thinking we were doing something nice and special for them.  Little did we know that we, and the brunch, in fact, sucked.  We didn’t get a good enough table.  Some thing or another was not piping hot.  The orange juice wasn’t fresh-squeezed.  It was too loud.  Too cold.  Too crowded.  We learned something valuable that day: you can never win with people who want to be aggrieved.  President Obama is learning that today.  A collection of thoughts on the release of the long-from birth certificate and the crap fountain of birther nonsense that will go on forever, here, here, here, here and my personal favorite, here.

… that Atlas Shrugged is a terrible movie.  Fear not, loyal Randians, the terribleness can be blamed on the liberal bias of the entire movie/media world who just doesn’t “get it” or … maybe they do “get it” and just don’t want to the American people to “get it” because “getting it” unravels the chunky knit sweater of socialist oppression that has enveloped this flabby land.

1 out of 23 people at Easter have seen Atlas Shrugged

In fairness, a little less than half that number were children.  You can read about Atlas Shrugged here, here and here and save your movie-going dollars for the big screen adaptation of the phone book.
