Mitt Romney Tries To ‘Keep Cool’ As Chris Christie Looks For Food

'Heh heh heh, plenty of pork chops right over there in the next room, Governor, heh heh ....'OMG you guys, Mitt Romney has a Flickr account. It is incredible. Here’s one of the very first pictures that “caught our eye,” oh lord. Mitt Romney, everyone! He has a Flickr, just like that Barack Obama did, back in 2008.

We were reading this Mother Jones thing about Romney’s alien strangeness, and were wondering where these amazing pictures came from, and how this vicious photographer somehow kept getting so close to Romney. Because anyone as “image conscious” as Mittens is not going to let some mean liberal news photographer keep hanging around when the pictures are so awful …. unless, of course, it’s Romney’s own photographer.

    People are essentially food products too.

      As are corporations.

      I guess Soylent Green really is people, after all.

  • Barb

    Chris, have some pepper spray. It's highly recommended by Fox News.

    • OccupytheDashboard

      If Chris were about to be peppered, all he would have to do is hold up his emergency plate of pasta in front of him. Protection AND Great Flavor!

      • DaRooster

        That or a Moob…

    Top picture: Is that a bedroom? If so, worst.porn.ever.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      "Gee, it's sure hot in here. Maybe you should take off your shirt."

      • Texan_Bulldog

        Eeeewwwww….At least Mitt can see his feet when he looks down. I wonder when the last time Chris has seen his wiener unless he was looking in a mirror.

        • prommie

          Christie needs a speculum to see his weiner.

        • tessiee

          "I wonder when the last time Chris has seen his wiener unless he was looking in a mirror."

          And even then, he'd have to be squatting overrrewwwwwww…
          *dies*

      • prommie

        This is amazing, now my pants are starting to chafe me.

    • Beowoof

      Is that guys in the closet porn.

    • BerkeleyBear

      Looks like a hotel room to me. And yeah, I don't want to see what happens next.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      "I bet you've got a lot of nice ties."
      "How do you mean?"
      "Would you like to tie me up with some of your ties, Chris-Tie?"

    • Lascauxcaveman

      Mitt is a Republican, after all. He frequently meets other republican men in motel rooms.

      In this photo, they are still at the stage where they are negotiating a price, and which one of them will be paying. Because it's totally not gay, as long as someone is getting paid for it.

    • PhilippePetain

      There actually is a market for BBG vids.

      • OccupytheDashboard

        In this, the Internet Age, there is a market for everything. I can think of something more heinous than anything thought of before and if I were to announce it here, in 5 minutes there would be focus groups and a marketing plan to sell such an idea.

        Until I master the "art" of writing a business plan, I'm keeping my mouth shut for the time being.

        • user-of-owls

          I just got a dozen investors to pony up $1.5 million in startup money for that idea.

    • tessiee

      "worst.porn.ever."

      "Anybody order a pizza?"

  • nounverb911

    The first photo should be captioned: "Love is in the air".

    • Blueb4sunrise

      Disco Libel!
      Wait, never mind…..

    • GOPCrusher

      Is that what that is? I thought Chris Christie farted.

  • BarackMyWorld

    Christie wants to know if Mitt's tie is made of blueberries.

    Because he's hungry all the time. Because he's fat.

    Wocka wocka.

    Not one picture of a bird! Pretty useless if you ask me.

    "Mittens looks more stiff as he tries to escape being sucked into Chris Christie's event horizon which is apparently around his pants as no light can be seen in that area."

  • tihond

    It's like a Tea Party "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

  • Gurkman

    If Mitzi doesn't win the nomination, the least Obama can do is name him Poet Laureate!

    • Chichikovovich

      That's a dangerous job nowadays.

      • Negropolis

        Law enforcement puts the "beat" in beat poet.

    Christie: Pass the ketchup and hurry. I'm hungry dammit!

      Mitt: Michele? Two waters over here please.

      Where are the name tags on those cute Mormon missionaries?

      Fixed.

    • http://thethingsrepublicanshate.com/ Chillwaver

      "Elder Bland" and "Elder Lard."

      • NorthStarSpanx

        Won't work, Mormon Missionaries either walk or bike. Not only does Christie not exercise, but he prefers helicopters to transport his bulk.

        • chicken_thief

          The Lard works in strange ways.

  • http://wonkette.com/ weejee

    Are those pepper spray drops on the boat windshield?

    • io9k9s

      Hardly, try a diamond infused champaigne mixture applied by monkey paw to the bullet proof bridge enclosure, using a gold plated crystal mister operated by a golden tamaran – who I might add is being hoisted up by a golden tanned mexican. Ambiance is everything when it comes to great photo composition.

    • GOPCrusher

      If Mitt is going to big up Christie, then this picture needs the obligatory "We're going to need a bigger boat." quote.

    • Pat_Pending

      Nah, but he's got his dog strapped to the roof.

    I'm getting major old cartoon flashbacks when I look at that top photo. All I see is Romney standing chest deep in a giant boiling cauldron while Christie looks on sporting a lion skin loincloth and a giant bone through his nose.

    Just keep your hands and feet away from Chris Christie's mouth, and you should be safe.

    The second picture: what's the betting that Mitt is indulging in his favourite stress-relief pastime of using his huge motor yacht to mow down dolphins?

    • Pragmatist2

      Baby seals. He's killing baby seals.

      Jackie Gleason for the win!

  • UnholyMoses

    Actually, it looks as though Christie has already eaten a Romney or two.

    I'd prefer that he eat a bag of salted dicks, but I didn't do so well during the Iron Chef audition, so, ya know …

  • Texan_Bulldog

    Mitt's slogan could be: At least I'm not fat … or Newt.

      Neut is both.

    • Negropolis

      Redundant.

    Christie: "Meghan McCain should be here any second now and we can start. She's bringing the strap-on."

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/30500320@N06/ DerrickWildcat

    Well it's clear that this Mitt Romney guy doesn't care at all about being a better photographer because he won't allow comments.

  • Baconzgood

    I find these photographs difficult to masterbate to.

    • http://wonkette.com TanzbodenKoenig

      If you squint, Christie looks kinda like Chaz Bono. Hope that helps

    • emmelemm

      But not impossible…

    • mrpuma2u

      These photos were not meant to be visually arousing, but rather as a visual emetic.

  • Dumbedup

    They are in a bedroom of some sort. Mitt: "so I'm gonna' lay on the bed, then your gonna' come and fuck me in the ass, kay?

    • Biff

      CANNONBALL!

  • Oblios_Cap

    Mitt seems to like hanging around with sickly pale white folks.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Here's one of Mitt standing in front of a bunch of machinery — or as he calls it, his base.

    • Chichikovovich

      "Now at the end of your shift, you shut down a machine like this one. But as a job creator, I would shut down entire companies."

    • Biff

      I think I'm beginning to see why he says they're people too.

  • zappadoo76

    Those pictures are like a Sopranos episode–remember the one on the boat?–with Mittens as Paulie Walnuts and Chris Christie as Big Pussy Bonpensiero. Big Pussy came to a sad end, with the fishes.

  • Ducksworthy

    Eww! Corproporn.

    • emmelemm

      I think I see what you did there?

    • Nostrildamus

      Corprolites are people my friend.

  • Master Janitor V572

    Mitt doesn't fear the reaper. He drives the reaper.

    If you click on the linky, you'll be rewarded thus:

    I saw the young man over there with eggs Benedict,
    With hollandaise sauce.
    And I was going to suggest to you that you serve your eggs—
    With hollandaise sauce in hubcaps.

    Because there’s no plates like chrome—
    For the hollandaise.

  • SayItWithWookies

    What I love about those pics is the crowds — the first black person appears on page five, second row from the bottom. Mitt must be the only human being on earth who can do a whole campaign swing through Florida and attract only white people.

    • tessiee

      "Mitt must be the only human being on earth who can do a whole campaign swing through Florida and attract only white people."

      Good point! Although, frankly, I'm amazed that he was able to attract anybody.

  • user-of-owls

    True story! A long time ago when I was living in France I actually met Mitt Romney who was over there doing missionary work. One day he invited a few of us to join him on a ride to Pau down in the Pyrenees. With Mitt behind the wheel, we set out for the drive and wouldn't you know it, all of a sudden there was a big *POW!* and it turns out we'd been in a head-on collision with another car. The funny thing is, you see, that I wound up being killed in the crash! Ha! I'll never forget that day!

    Leola Anderson

    • Master Janitor V572

      But they met their goal of 200 baptisms for the year, so everything was okay.

      Ha ha, persuading the French to give up cigarettes, coffee and wine — a fool's errand, if ever there was one.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      "In June 1968, an automobile Romney was driving in southern France was hit by another vehicle, seriously injuring him and killing one of his passengers, the wife of the mission president."

      Meh, the mission prez probably had a few to spare.

    • Chichikovovich

      Now if you check the well-tended Wikipedia page, you'll see that Romney was not at fault in that accident. And they even cite two references. A New York Times article of a couple of years ago, which cites no evidence or sources at all and just asserts flatly "Romney was not at fault". And a Boston Globe article of a couple of years ago, which talks not only to Romney (who was knocked unconscious and who should therefore be expected to have no memories of the ten or so minutes just before. i.e. of the accident) but also two of Romney's friends in the car (another of whom was knocked unconscious): Everyone still living who had been in the Romney car. All sides of the story, in other words.

      They are absolutely unanimous that the other driver (a local Catholic priest) was completely at fault, and some unnamed sources (identified as "Mormon sources") suggested the priest was inebriated. According to the Romney group, as quoted in the Globe, they didn't press charges or even sue for recovery of damages, because they didn't want to create ill-will with the Catholic church and the French government, which sounds totally plausible. When the Globe contacted the French police, they said they had no records extending that far back, and apparently the Church and the Romney's didn't keep copies of any exculpatory documentation, since the Globe story doesn't mention any. But hey, who keeps every little slip of paper around?

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        Where's the long form accident report?

      • HarryButtle

        They were playing chicken. The priest was all, like, "Your magic underwear won't save you now, bitches!" and floored it and then the Mittster was like, "No effing way, Padre! The pope wears dresses!" and stomped on the gas and they slammed head-on into each other, and the lady in the passenger seat went to heaven. The End.

    • comrad_darkness

      Silly Romney, killing your main squeeze in a traffic crash makes you First Lady, not President.

      In all fairness, the French are horrific drivers.

  • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

    From the MotherJones article:

    But there's another way of looking at the wit and mannerisms of the occasional GOP frontrunner: underappreciated poet. Consider this passage, from a November speech in Troy, Michigan:

    "I love the lakes.
    I love the Great Lakes.
    You know, we’ve been to Massachusetts—I love the ocean, too.
    I do love the ocean."

        Oklahoma, not Arizona, what does it matter?

  • io9k9s

    The palpable awkwardness of Romney borders on painful, BUT if you can visualize the metal bolts on either side of Mitt's neck, that surely must have been photoshopped away by his personal historian, you can almost see an endearing monster – by no means a peter boyle, more like a Fred Gwynne special.

Stand ramrod straight like Perry? No, too unnatural; I'll slump a bit for the common touch. Now what should I do with my arms – fold them? No, looks too severe. Put my hands in my pockets? No, can't do that, Christie already did that with his hands. Is there something I can point at … I can't just let them hang there … I need to …" CLICK!

    Regarding the 2nd picture, If that is in Boston Harbor, Mittens is one of those boaters called a MAFI (Motor Assisted Fucking Idiot), frequently the objects of virulent disdain and long strings of cuss words from ferry captains for criss-crossing the channels and other fuck nuttery.
