I woke up last night at 4am with a migraine so bad that I had to use meditation techniques to stave off nausea. I had to go on the emergency headache meds, which found me lying in a dark room, trying to work on a laptop with the screen dimmed to almost zero Kelvin, until 2pm today.
So I’m not trying to be trenchant today, nor am I going to say something utterly original. But I feel a need to reiterate my previous position: anyone surprised by the behavior of Republicans, either clandestine or brassy, whether on a secret videotape or through a loudspeaker, clearly hasn’t been paying attention.
I’m confused as to which part of Mitt Romney’s 47 percent statements are novel, for him or for any other member of the GOP. Maureen Dowd wrote yesterday “We thought Romney was secretly moderate, but it turns out he’s secretly cruel…” Shit, I was saying this nine years ago!
GIGO, like my brother Steve said in the 1970s: garbage in, garbage out. Disgusting platforms make for disgusting candidates. Plants, not people, grow lushly from a diet of shit.
