Mitt Romney and Wrath of Lord Mo Mo
Golly. I've spent the last two days sacrificing one shrimp after the other on the barbie. To the eternal glory of the angry weather god Lord Mo Mo.
Hoping that the Big Mo might nudge Hurricane Isaac, in the general direction of Mitt Romney and the Republican convention.
And so far, so good.
Tropical Storm Isaac menaced the U.S. presidential election campaign on Sunday, forcing Republicans to make changes to their national convention in Tampa, Florida, where party officials scrambled to make sure candidate Mitt Romney's message to voters does not get blown off course.
Especially since Isaac doesn't have to blow the roof off the convention centre, to cause a PR disaster.
Epstein says he “can forsee a scenario where the storm intensifies to a major hurricane, category 3 or higher and slams into the Gulf Coast.”
“Imagine the visuals of homes destroyed and peoples lives ruined while the Republicans are having their convention...”
At a time when the leaders of Grand Old Bigot party are already struggling to cope with this PR catastrophe.
Republican National Party chair Reince Priebus says that Todd Akin's insistence on staying in the Missouri Senate race could cost the party its chance to win control of the Senate.
Akin has apologized repeatedly for comments made a week ago that pregnancy in a "legitimate rape" is rare because the female body tries "to shut that whole thing down."
By spanking the creepy Akin, for saying what they think.
I don't understand why Republicans are piling on Akin. He simply said what other Republican leaders have been thinking and saying for years.
Akin is them. They are Akin. Hypocritical voices are calling for the congressman, who won his primary, to quit. He's more dangerous to them than anyone else. He exposes their values in a way that most of us can't accept. Rape is rape. A woman shouldn't be forced by her government to have a child -- it's so Handmaid's Tale.
Only to have the MSM shine a light into the dark orifice of the Republican platform. Finally. And discover that it reads like it was written by Akin himself.
Oh boy. They say Mitt Romney was hoping to get a "bounce" out of this convention. But if so may I suggest he line his Magic Mormon Pyjamas with at least six inches of rubber. Because it's going to be a hard landing.
And what more can I say eh?
At a time when the winner of the American election could determine the fate of the planet.
Except thank you Lord Mo Mo.
Please blow those crazy misogynists, homophobes, and racists, back to the 14th Century where they belong.
And Toddy, you pervert.
This one's for you...
