MittRomney

During the 2012 election cycle I had a lot of fun with Mitt Romney before he eventually lost his presidential bid, strapped his dog to the roof of his car, and rode off into the sunset. I never hated Mitt. He just seemed kind of feckless, what with his binders full...

I’m from Wisconsin, and I lived there for most of my life. I’ve occasionally joked that my fellow Wisconsinites’ choosing Ron Johnson over Russ Feingold (twice!) felt a little like your mom divorcing your dad so she could date Carrot Top. In other words — FUCKING INSANE! But as fatuous and...

And in case you’re giving Donald Trump credit for a level of understanding that seems beyond his ken, he also thinks Republicans will take back the House. And no one thinks that.  No, it appears he thinks the Senate is lost because there are some GOP senators he doesn’t like — and...

Last night and this morning, I felt like crawling into a hole for the next 40 days or so. And not a deep hole. I didn’t have the energy or joie de vivre for a deep hole. It would have been a shallow hole. Barely a hole at all. Really,...

Oh, check out the above photo. Mitt Romney looks like such a lapdog you might be justifiably worried that Mitt Romney is about to strap Mitt Romney to the roof of Mitt Romney’s car. But sometime after Donald Trump invited Romney to dinner so he could humiliate him by scuttling his bid for...

To be sure, I am not a fan of George W. Bush, no matter how many candies he hands Michelle Obama. But if Bush was a big, jagged kidney stone that took eight years to pass, Donald Trump is a large cache of unexploded Korean War ordnance lodged in my...

The best I can say about Mitt Romney is that he ran for president as a Republican and somehow isn’t a garbage heap of hate and willful stupidity. The second best thing I can say about him is Donald Trump despises him, which means he must be doing something right....

This anticipated move of Meadows to replace Mulvaney could distract from the current Trump messaging. Mulvaney gets to work on his golf game for the remainder of the Trump term. He can still be subpoenaed, but he’s at least out of the WH. A four-term lawmaker, Meadows announced in December that...

Other than the possibility that he could vote to convict Trump, Mitt seems to have a Twitter sockpuppet named Twitter user @qaws9876, otherwise known as Pierre Delecto. Sen.

Mitt Romney has a tweet or two critical of Trump, and now he wants to be some kind of hero during impeachment?  That’s what is being reported by Gabe Sherman of Vanity Fair.

Since Donald Trump thinks he can do no wrong, he apparently didn’t fully comprehend the danger inherent in releasing the transcript of his call with Ukraine’s new president.

So, 13 months after Donald Trump took the oath of office, it’s come to this for the Republican Party. Its putative leader used to be pro-choice.
