No commentary required 9/17/12

OK, so Mitt Romney had a terrible awful not-so-good day...again.

What other stories caught my eye?

Tina Brown and the entire Newsweek organization ought to be ashamed.

Even Erick Erickson at Red State admits Romney is loosing.
Like it or not, spin it or not, put your head in the sand or not, attack me as the messenger or not, the very simple truth is that Mitt Romney has failed to close any deal with the voters and his message is so muddled no voter really knows what they are getting.
You really need to read Markos' rundown on the battle for the Senate. His conclusion:
One thing's for sure—this is nowhere near the disaster map Democrats feared just six months ago. There's a realistic (if outside) possibility that we can actually emerge from this cycle picking up a seat or two. Worst case, we can still lose the Senate, though that looks to be a remote possibility for now.
It happened a little over a week ago, but my hero - David Simon - was on Real Time with Bill Maher. And as usual, he spoke some important truth.

Finally, there ain't nothing wrong with getting a good laugh at the expense of Faux News. Someone named Donovan Slack took this photo today of President Obama speaking at the campaign rally in Cincinnati.

The idiots at Fox Nation saw it and thought they had an opportunity to take a shot at the President.
At a campaign event in Cincinnati this morning, President Obama really got his audience’s enthusiasm flowing. One man apparently drank in a little more of Obama’s greatness than everyone else, and, unable to contain himself any longer, he snuck off to relieve some pent-up pressure, killing some grass in the process...
Trouble is, they wound up taking a shot at the Secret Service instead.
Well, the Secret Service now says the man is an employee and he was not urinating. Agents typically face away from the president and watch for threats that may be headed his way, in this case, from the woods.

“The individual in the light blue shirt in the background of the photo is one of our personnel,” Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said.
Like I said...idiots!


  1. SP, someone tweeted this to that creature, Tina Brown:


  2. People really don't like Mitt. Have the media people finally said enough? Was it Voltaire that prayed for his enemies to be ridiculous? I'm loving it. I get the added benefit of rubbing it in every republican's face. Romney's not built to hang with the big kids. I say if Willard's looking for sympathy, it'll be in the dictionary around the end of the s section.
