Avoiding a Surrender to Terror and Other Bullshit

Standard

Mitt Romney dropped out of the republican primary. He claims it wasn’t because he’s a big fat losing loser, but because staying in would split republican votes and contribute to a Clinton or Obama win. He claimed, “I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.”

What?? Does he not understand how the primaries work? Because if, like he claims, staying in the race would split the republican vote, it would only split it among the votes for the republican candidate. It has nothing to do with the main election. So, no matter who the republican candidate turns out to be, once the primaries are over, those voters will be choosing between a republican candidate and a democratic candidate, regardless of how many votes Romney did or didn’t get.

But good try on the face-saving maneuver, anyway, Mitt. Unfortunately, it was about as believable as when my cat falls off the TV and does his casual little “I meant to do that” ass licking.

Oh – and I felt like I needed to come back and add that I couldn’t give a good shit about Mitt Romney. But if he were right that staying in the race would guarantee a Democratic win? I’d actually campaign for him.

Forty-sdjhfkjsdhfkjsdh year old mom of 2 - a 18 year old boy and a 11 year old girl. I love them very much, but they drive me crazy. I'm married and work full-time. I'm not sure which of these is the most exhausting, but probably the husband. I'm opinionated. I'm outspoken. I'm loud. I'm an over-sharer. I think Tom Cruise is a jackass. I like to say jackass. I like to swear, period. Fuckers. I love to read. I struggle with my weight. I love my job. I dress my pets up and ridicule them regularly. I am not afraid to cut my hair and I don't understand people who are. I hate getting old. I love to laugh. Make me laugh, OK?

  1. I think that line was just code for, “I will have to resort to negative campaigns, and I know that will end up backfiring when everybody starts digging in MY closet, so I surrender before the digging begins.”I hate when primaries don’t serve their purpose. Gah!
