That’s My Joe

Not gonna be another Bush/Darth thing.  Joe ain’t old.  He can do better than Reagan.

I love Denver.

I’ll probably watch PBS.

Mitt’s Done — The Rest is Just Process

Given the release of the video of Mitt’s fundraiser — it’s all here — and all of the commentary I have read today and this evening — this quote better expresses my view than I could myself:

The revelations in this video come to me as a genuine shock. I have never hated Romney. I presumed his ideological makeover since he set out to run for president was largely phony, even if he was now committed to carry through with it, and to whatever extent he’d come to believe his own lines, he was oblivious or naïve about the damage he would inflict upon the poor, sick and vulnerable.  It seems unavoidable now to conclude that Romney’s embrace of Paul Ryanism is born of actual contempt for the looters and moochers, a class war on behalf of his own class.

“Did the water come from the sky, or the rivers, or the ocean?”

That’s our “next president” down in Louisiana, surveying the flooding damage.

And no, I’m not making that up.

I’m sure there is some explanation.
