Romney to World: Kiss My Ass
July 31, 2012

Actually, if you think about Romney as someone who come next January could be running this country — if voter suppression, billionaire-backed slander campaigns, and average IQ all hold — the outburst in Poland may actually be the most frightening event of his world tour.

After all, how hard is it to hire a spokesperson who can think of snappier replies to pesky questions than “kiss my ass” and “shove it”?

Isn’t that the whole point in having a spokesperson?

Clearly, left to one’s own devices, one can fall into such traps as telling the British and the Palestinians that they’re not doing things right. It’s not like they might be just looking for an excuse to take the piss out of you.

But that’s why we turn things over to experts — the lawnwork to the undocumented worker, the unemployment line to a struggling working class — because some things are challenging.

So what does it tell us when when you hire an advisor, who according to Romney was going rogue, so to speak, when sharing the thought that white people understand the British better than . . . our President, or a spokesman whose idea of repartee is “Kiss my ass, this is a holy site for the Polish people, show some respect”?

I for one can’t wait to see who Romney picks for a running mate.

My mother says she is scared.
