Mittens is an awful man, and a Mormon. No one likes him beyond the various unemployed welders of Michigan, Tom Tancredo and maybe son Tagg or Craig. He tells lies and he shits plastic. But no cadre of individuals loathes Mittens more than the other Republicans running for president, as the New York Times brilliantly pointed out today. Finally, we can agree with Rudy Giuliani, WALNUTS! and Huckabee about something! Maybe Mitt really is a uniter.
Other candidates hate Mitt because he has money. The other three have all, at some point, stopped paying senior staffers and probably — in those really “bad times” — prostituted themselves on Manchester’s Elm St. “hot zone” for some emergency shoe money.
It’s more than dollars, however. Mitt’s dick qualities also make him unlikable. Consider, as the NYT did, Romney as the anti-McCain — because everyone loves that old moralist coot WALNUTS! They have to since he was tortured:
Mr. Schnur used a schoolyard analogy to compare Mr. Romney, the ever-proper Harvard Law School and Business School graduate, to Mr. McCain, the gregarious rebel who racked up demerits and friends at the Naval Academy.
“John McCain and his friends used to beat up Mitt Romney at recess,” Mr. Schnur said.
Yes, and that would also explain why McCain wants to bomb everything all the time. But this just makes me happy:
McCain aides were positively gleeful last week as they watched replays aboard their campaign bus of a heated back and forth between Mr. Romney and an Associated Press reporter who challenged an assertion about the influence of lobbyists in his campaign.
