“Binders full of women” protest at Ohio GOP HQ.

I’m thinking we may also be looking at a Halloween trend here.

Yup! A friend of mine suggested it as a Halloween costume on Facebook. :)

And these asshats in Ohio have a sign on their building? Even in Texas, our local Repubs don’t do that.

Yahoo reports [a holographic Ronald Reagan] was originally planned for this week’s Republican National Convention, but because it would cause the entire party to literally break down screaming and clawing at their genitals, it was scrapped—the attention is supposed to be on Romney, not a hologram.

Watching the GOP convention tonight? Play some RNC bingo. (Spoiler alert: Everybody loses.)

Let it go, conservatives.  You’re just reaching now.  You might pull a muscle and as we all know, that’s not covered by Obamacare.

New Tumblr to follow! Amercia Is With Mitt

LOL. Twitter exploded with the news this morning that the Romney camp misspelled the word ‘America’ on their new iPhone app - they went live with ‘Amercia’ instead. Some iPhone users took a break from tweeting about Amercia to actually download and use the app, fostering the creation of ‘Amercia Is With Mitt’ on Tumblr.

As long as Mitt Romney publicly claims credit for the auto industry’s recovery, he’s going to put his fellow Republicans on Capitol Hill in an awkward position.

Sen. John McCain:

“Romney said that he was responsible for the auto bailout?…I’d have to look at the context of his remarks. I…

Karma’s a bitch, isn’t it?

After attacking Obama’s use of TelePrompter - Marco Rubio loses last page of speech, can’t continue.

“The most articulate and talented teleprompter reader in America.”
    — Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), quoted by the New York Times, mocking President                                             Obama in 2010.

“I left my last page of the speech, does anyone have my last page? Did I Ieave it with you?”
— Rubio, while giving a speech today at the Brookings Institution.

If only there was a better way Senator… if only there was a better way.

Y’know I have never and will never get what the deal is with the right’s problem with teleprompters. There have always been speechwriters, not every word that comes out of a politicians mouth came out of their head. All teleprompters do is use technology to display speeches in a way that allows the politician to maintain eye contact with their audience rather than fumbling around with pieces of paper on a podium.

With the added bonus of not looking like a total fool on stage like this guy.

Mitt Romney will NOT REST until you eat a pastry. Here’s an excerpt of a Phil Rucker’s pool report from a flight between Charleston and Greenville Friday:

Before take off, Mitt Romney walked down the aisle with a large box of assorted pastries from Panera Bread to pass out to the passengers (including the governors and press).
What follows is a transcript of his exchanges.
“Come on, Kasie, dig in,” Romney said to Kasie Hunt of the Associated Press. “Pain au chocolat. Smart move.”
“Ashley?” Romney said to Ashley Parker of The New York Times.
“Can you just grab me something?” Parker asked, turning to her seatmate, Kasie Hunt, who was holding the tongs poised over the basket.
“What do you want though?” Romney asked.
“Um…” Parker said. “The popover thing?”
“The popovers?” Romney asked.
“Thank you very much,” Parker said.
“Sticky bun?” Romney asked other reporters. “There you go.”
“Snack time! Nothing? Just, you know, use your fingers,” Romney said, struggling with the big box. “The heck with this. There you go.”
“Come on, Emily, dig in here,” Romney said to Emily Friedman of ABC News. “Fingers are fine. We’re among friends.”
“Sarah, you want one? What do you want?” Romney said to Sarah Boxer of CBS News.
“I don’t know,” Boxer said. “What’s in there?”
“We’re gonna solve problem one here by getting rid of these ridiculous things here,” Romney said, handing two pairs of black plastic tongs to the flight attendant behind him.
“Rucker, come on Rucker,” Romney said to Philip Rucker of The Washington Post. “Oh, he makes a good move for the cheese. Take two.”
“No, no, no,” Rucker said.
“Look it, there’s so much in here,” Romney said. “Come in, take more. No, take more than one. Take two, take two, Ruck-man. Come on.”
“Where’d you get it?” Matt Viser of The Boston Globe asked Romney, referring to the pastries box.
“We found it on the floor up there,” Romney said.
“Do you want another one?” Romney asked Sara Murray of The Wall Street Journal.
“No, I’m good, but thank you,” Murray said.
“Who wants some more of these?” Romney said. “Look at this. This is good stuff. This is from Panera. Very high-end.”
“Pain au chocolat in there,” Romney continued. “Look at the sticky buns. Those are the best.”
“Hey, Rucker, there’s still some more of those cheese cake babies in here,” Romney continued. “No? You only had one of these. Come on, Ashley.”
“Alright,” Romney said. “We’ve got to get seated.”

“Look at the sticky buns. Those are the best”—amazing. (Photo: Charles Dharapak/AP)

Newt Gingrich is the candidate with many wives

Newt Gingrich: Man of Many Wives

Newt Gingrich is the candidate with many wives.

BWAHAHAHA!!!! Maybe McCain was thinking of Santorum instead?

“He will rebuild the moral of American and he will restore America,” McCain said of Romney. “I guarantee you he will not lead from behind like Ronald Reagan. He will lead from in front.”

Both Romney’s wife, Ann, and Haley turned to look at the candidate, but he simply applauded this time instead of correcting the 2008 GOP nominee.

DNC’s press secretary Melanie Roussell set up a Twitter hashtag to have fun with Romney’s $10,000 bet. #What10kbuys is now trending world-wide.
