Mitt Romney Is Sad And Rudderless Post-Election

RomneyAloneThere's an early Simpsons episode in which Marge becomes the church's "Listen Lady," leaving pious Reverend Lovejoy with nothing to do but play with his model trains.

To the toy passengers on these trains, the brokenhearted and bored pastor, playing the conductor, says "If the passengers will look to their right, you will see a sad man. That is all..."

After reading this Washington Post piece, "A detached Romney tends wounds in seclusion after failed White House bid," I can't help but imagine failed president candidate Mitt Romney in that Lovejoy role.

An excerpt:

The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan.


Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There’s no aide to make his peanut-butter-and-honey sandwiches. Romney hangs around the house, sometimes alone, pecking away at his iPad and e-mailing his CEO buddies who have been swooping in and out of La Jolla to visit. He wrote to one who’s having a liver transplant soon: "I’ll change your bedpan, take you back and forth to treatment."

In the end of the aforementioned Simpsons episode, Lovejoy saves Ned Flanders from being mauled by baboons after Marge gives him bad advice. The fallen pastor becomes a hero once again. Will Romney pull off a similar comeback? Is he willing to risk his life fighting off rabid baboons to save a fellow American?

Lady Gaga Gets Marge Simpson Going: VIDEO


Lady Gaga stopped by Springfield for The Simpsons' season finale to boost the sad town's self-esteem, particularly that of a down in the mouth Lisa, recently voted the least popular kid in the school.

Marge, woeful and stressed over her daughter's depression, turns to Gaga, who in turn soothes the matriarch with a nice, long kiss. And Marge's reaction makes it clear the smooch got her in the mood. Is there something we don't know about this housewife?
