  2. Well, I guess that's worth 1/3,000th of an apology to that poor gay boy he tormented so viciously in high school. Screw you, Mittens.

  3. oh now we like Mitt Romney??? ugh this site is a mess. Towleroad makes haters, bigots, racists famous by giving them importance.

  4. @BOSIE -- The only hater here is you. They reported what Romney said. That's it.

  5. Stopped clock.

    Mitt conveniently "forgot" what he may have done to the gender nonconforming boy at Cranbrook School.

    I suspect, also, that the color of Mitt's hair, slong with that of his wife, ain't natural.

  6. Hmmmm...Who's that guy? looks vaguely like a former 1980's anchorman....

  7. Like Mitt Romney? How so, Bosie? Since when is reporting something someone says (or tweets) an endorsement? He's still anti-gay. He just happens to be right on this bill (looking at it from a business perspective, no doubt) and that is worth noting. Nothing more, nothing less.

  9. Can we just ignore him?

  10. look. i'm relevant. please pay attention to me.

  11. Why shouldn't he run? Hillary can mop the floor just as easily with him as with the rest of the halfwit neandertals on the GOP bench.

  12. Don't forget, many religions hate each other as much as they hate heathens.

    Morons are despised more than most, you know, because of all that other stuff they added to the "one true Bible".

    They are vulnerable to SB1062 too.

    Doesn't feel so good when the shoe is on the other foot, does it Mitt?

  13. See "Awareness activism" is just polished hypocrisy after all...

  14. He demeans the pixels on my screen. No day in this decade was more satisfying than that in which this turd lost to Obama.

  15. Yes he wants to be relevant. What he did @Cranbrook was hateful and a longtime ago. Are his motives pure as we would like? Hell No! Someone on the right has to save the GOP from the crazie radicals invading their Country Club. On this we can find common ground/grass. We need a dialogue.

  16. Oops!

    I see in my above post I mistakenly typed "Morons" instead of "Mormons".

    I swear to God (whom I doubt actually exists) that I wasn't trying to be cute. However, it could definitely be chalked up as a Freudian Slip, or maybe, the devil made me do it.

  17. JOHNNY - you just can't help being cute. Neither can Romney - who really is a handsome man. That and his pro-gay (that's what it is) stand now in AZ, plus being a Mormon, which at least puts him near the ballpark on multiple marriages, means I'm offering my hand in marriage, if he'll have me. But will he be more obedient to me than to the Church Authorities, that's the question?

  18. @uffda. Damn that's good. Come sit by me please.

  19. Did I miss something? When did Mitt Romney's opinion become relevant?

    Posted by: ny2.0 | Feb 25, 2014 9:40:44 PM

  20. @ JonnyNYNY2FLFL I had to re-read it and realized you meant Mormons and took it as a Freudian slip. I laughed. Mormons are cow dung to me after they funneled over 8 million dollars into California in support of Prop 8. I'll never forgive them for that.

  21. This is a power play from the GOP establishment. Sometimes they have to relax their opposition to doing the right thing in order to keep the far-right crazies from sinking the boat. Mittens is the pin sent to pop the tea baggers' balloon.

    If the camera panned down, I'd bet you could still see Reince Priebus' spittle on Thurston Howell's expensive, Italian shoes.

  22. UFFDA:
    You have to ask Ann Romney first. Or you two can arrange for some dynasty-like catfight.

  23. All the political 'has-beens' are out today.

    Posted by: JackFknTwist | Feb 26, 2014 3:00:30 AM

  24. The GOP ought to run him with Sarah Palin. Both are known losers who appear to be carved out of cream cheese. The rest of their possibilities keep imploding. Excitement is building.

  25. When is this artifact going to go into that "good night"
