Romney wanders in a daze, his hair not perfectly gelled. And his campaign advisers continue to express astonishment that a disastrous campaign, convention and candidate, as well as a lack of familiarity with what Stevens dismissively calls “whiz-bang turnout technologies,” could possibly lead to defeat. Who would ever have thought blacks would get out and support the first black president? Who would ever have thought women would shy away from the party of transvaginal probes? Who would ever have thought gays would work against a party that treated them as immoral and subhuman? Who would have ever thought young people would desert a party that ignored science and hectored on social issues? Who would ever have thought Latinos would scorn a party that expected them to finish up their chores and self-deport?

You would think that the world came to an end Tuesday night. And depending on your worldview, it might have. If your idea of America’s power structure is rooted in a 1950s or even a 1920s sensibility, here’s an update: that America is no more. Republicans are trying to hold back a storm surge of demographic change with a white picket fence. Good luck with that.

lauren ashley bishop lives here: i sent my mom an email to ask her not to vote for romney

laurenashleybishop:

I want to tell you to not vote for Romney for a lot of reasons.

I want to remind you how devastatingly dishonest he’s been regarding his own finances. How he basically committed a felony in 2009 which is why he won’t release his tax returns for that year.

How he lied blatantly about the auto…

This is a truly wonderful letter. I teared up reading it.

election:

TMZ spoke with multiple people in the bayonet industry who tell us they were shocked and even offended when Obama brought up the weapon during last night’s debate. 

FYI — Obama was going after Romney when he said, “You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed.”

[…]

We spoke with Dan Riker from Bayonet Inc. — a leading military surplus outlet that specializes in bayonets — who tells us he believes Obama’s comment was “ignorant … because our soldiers still use bayonets.”

Kudos to TMZ for being first to the story on outrage in the bayonet industry following the president’s dig at Mitt Romney’s archaic Navy expectations last night. We’ll keep you updated on the horse lobby’s response if and when they trot it out.

—Cord Jefferson

Well, he didn’t say “we have NO horses and bayonets,” now, did he? Dick.

We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.

Mitt Romney today. Actually, about 26,000 Americans die every year because they don’t have health insurance, so Romney is flatly wrong (and, in our eyes, being a bit disrespectful to about 26,000 American families). He also said that “we don’t have a setting across this country where if you don’t have insurance, we just say to you, ‘Tough luck, you’re going to die when you have your heart attack.’” source (via shortformblog)

This is fucking ridiculous.

Mitt Romney was asked to define "middle income." He answered that it was between $200,000 and $250,000 a year.

Can Shit Romney be more out of touch with the middle class, and Americans in general?

I don’t fucking think so.

Romney brags: “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate.”

Congratulations on being jaw-droppingly white, Mitt!

Standing with about 40 smiling women dressed in long colorful skirts and Sunday dresses, Mrs. Romney sang the lyrics, ‘I shall divide my gifts from thee with every brother that I see, who has the need of help from me.’
