Mitt Romney, the Billionaire, and the Scissor Sister
When I watch this latest attack ad from the Mitt Romney campaign, I can't help thinking how desperate he must be, and how much money he must have.
If he can outspend even Obama.
“I will be the first president in modern history to be outspent in his reelection campaign, if things continue as they have so far,” Obama wrote. “I'm not just talking about the super-PACs and anonymous outside groups — I'm talking about the Romney campaign and the Republicans themselves. Those outside groups just add even more to the underlying problem.”
Democrats are increasingly worried about the fundraising prowess of Republican-affiliated super-PACs. Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has pledged massive sums to various Republican-affiliated campaigns and PACs.
So I'm really glad that Sarah Silverman has made Sheldon Adelson, the unofficial chairman of the Romney Billionaires Club, and the super hawk on Israel.
You know, this guy....
An offer he surely can't refuse.
If he gives $100 million to Obama instead of Romney.
She will personally scissor him to fruition...
You know, even for a $100 million I can't help feeling that Sarah is sacrificing herself too cheaply. But then these are desperate times eh?
Anyone willing to scissor bottom Stephen Harper to fruition, in return for a promise to retire?
Nah. I didn't think so. He'd only break that promise.
Welcome to Harperland.
God bless America...
