Mitt Romney Has Worn A Garbage Bag, Just Like You

by Jim Newell

Which way to the creamery?The whole world (or a few thousand people) laughed at Mitt Romney for mocking those poor NASCAR fans he encountered the other day in their plastic ponchos, telling them, “I like those fancy raincoats you bought. Really sprung for the big bucks.” Why didn’t Mitt buy them all golden GORE-TEX rain-repellent space jackets? Does he even want to buy the presidency anymore? But no, he says now, he wasn’t mocking them. There are plenty of times when he’s had to wear much worse — garbage bags, even. He loves garbage! He probably only rents his suits, too, when he’s not wearing his beloved garbage bags.

Romney responded to the many responses to his funny line about the poncho’d troll people, all of them watching the race cars go ’round and ’round, in Florida, on Bill O’Reilly last night. From the WaPo:

“Is it worth it for you even to say those things?” host Bill O’Reilly asked Romney in the interview, noting that Democrats have pounced on the remarks as the latest in what they argue is a series of gaffes that reveals Romney is out of touch with most Americans.

“Well you know, it’s hard to imagine all the things they’re going to try and turn into attacks,” Romney responded. “I mean, that’s the first time I’ve heard the one you’ve mentioned. Look, I have worn a garbage bag for rain gear myself. And we’re out there in the rain; the rain was getting us soaked; I didn’t have a rain coat myself. I would have liked one of those. So, you know, it’s just the nature of the process.”

You should all be ashamed for your taunts at Mitt Romney. Wait… it’s the nature of the process? In that case, continue feeling no shame.

bespoke garbage bags, who knew???

Negropolis March 2, 2012 at 1:36 am

Bloomingdales? How common. Romney had his garbaged bags custom made by the finest tailors in Metro Detroit.

ttommyunger March 1, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Mouth opens up, garbage comes out, who can explain it, Bill?

anniegetyerfun March 1, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Never a miscommunication! He says exactly what he means, which is that everyone poor sucks.

ttommyunger March 1, 2012 at 9:01 pm

…or is simply inconsequential.

hagajim March 1, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Someone probably needs to buy Mittens a Gaffe hook….I'd say mouth open and stupidity comes out.

ttommyunger March 1, 2012 at 8:55 pm

He do have his problems in the public arena.

Negropolis March 2, 2012 at 1:36 am

It's good, then, that he has his garbage bag rain slicker to catch the mouth-garbage with.

ttommyunger March 2, 2012 at 7:03 am

Clever, that…Finally, a method to his madness.

None of this Glad crap for her. She wears a Hefty bag–two actually–that's the Cadillac of bags, right there.

Yes, one over Mitt's head with a photo of Megan McCain pasted on

GuanoFaucet March 1, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Mitt has also been known to walk past homeless people and say:

“I like those fancy cardboard homes you bought. Really sprung for the big bucks.”

YasserArraFeck March 1, 2012 at 1:18 pm

A "cardboard house" really only becomes a "home" when a homeless dude craps in it.

Or when it hears the patter of tiny feet – usually rats.

johnnyzhivago March 1, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Romney should be cramming his campaign into a garbage bag at this point.

Chillwillard March 1, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Does this mean we can officially rename "garage bags"? "Honey, we are out Romney bags!"

savethispatient March 1, 2012 at 1:07 pm

"And remember to take out the Romney cans to the curb, they're overflowing with Romney. And don't to forget to separate the food waste and put it in the Gingrich."

Don't forget to wash the Santorum outta the Romney. Otherwise, we'll end up with a maggot infestation. Plus it'll smell to high heavens.

These two truly have stunk up the joint.

"You are also gonna need some Romney bags to clean after the dog. He romneyed all over the living room rug during the lightning storm."

I thought he Romneyed all over the car after the trip he took atop it?

Sounds more appropriate for colostomy bags.

To be fair, his raingear was from the new "Garbaj" line from Derelik.

"And we’re out there in the rain; the rain was getting us soaked; I didn’t have a rain coat myself I would have liked one of those."

So, question–would it have been MORE or LESS awkward had he offered to buy the poncho off of one of their backs?

No, Willard! No! That's an illegal alien wearing that garbage bag. Don't give him the $10,000, it'll look bad in the campaign.

“Is it worth it for you even to say those things?” host Bill O’Reilly asked…

Like Mitt thinks about things before he says them…

Unless his handlers manage to convince him to never, ever, EVER go off-script we've got eight more months of this stuff to look forward to.

owhatever March 1, 2012 at 1:07 pm

It's a Mormon thing. The garbage bags are magic and repel water, so you should keep a few boxes in your end of the world stash. Every NASCAR fan who wears one gets a free baptism in Salt La Kacity and can worship Joseph Smith along with Jesus H. Christ.

Gingrich has the most trash but I find that I enjoy seeing Romney's disastrous attempts at relating to ordinary people.

anniegetyerfun March 1, 2012 at 1:55 pm

And it's not like it's going to change. The guy just get so flustered. It's odd, too, because I imagine he's a fairly smart guy, but just not comfortable enough in his own skin to deal with the attention. He seeks it out, and then he fucks it in the face.

Maybe one of the brilliant minds behind the Romney campaign should see that he now only appears in public dressed as a hobo, so he can bond with the common man.

Okay, Mitt's never actually worn a garbage bag — but he did help create the cheap, shoddy America where garbage bags were an affordable form of rain gear. And I'll bet those bag-wearing NASCAR fans didn't even thank him.

MissTaken March 1, 2012 at 2:47 pm

I too am very glad you still go down despite him. Wait, what?

Where is SNL when we need a new character. I'm looking for a Mitt Romney version of the character who is at a party and every time someone says something she says she did, had or whatever the same thing but it was bigger, worse or more expensive.©

Based on his amazing performance in the Least Amazing Race 2012, he'll be lucky to wear a barrel after he gets sent to the electoral poor house.

Every day with Mittens is like another episode of "Third Rock From The Sun."

freakishlywrong March 1, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Fine, Mittens. Now, please explain the Mom jeans.

jus_wonderin March 1, 2012 at 2:34 pm

I am beginning to think Mitt is not like me.

proudgrampa March 1, 2012 at 2:47 pm

I just wanna say that, one summer I spent some time on the Pacific Crest Trail. To save weight, I packed a large plastic garbage bag for rain protection. Best investment I could have ever made.

Why does Mitt hate the plastics industry so much?

"By golly, I'll never forget the big storm out on Lake Michigan. We were on the governor's yacht, The Moroni, and nobody had packed the Patagonia foul weather gear. We all donned Hefty bags. Then she began taking on water and the bilge pump failed.
'Have you got any tampons, Ma?' I asked. We were in luck …"

Romoney seems destined to keep opening his mouth for the sole (LOL) purpose of putting the other foot in.

Ann Richards' famous line is very applicable to Mormney.

Puffperney March 1, 2012 at 7:09 pm

…and we can look forward to more hilarity throughout most of this year. Yeah!

WiscDad March 1, 2012 at 3:23 pm

What a dipshit…he's out of touch with himself

DemonicRage March 1, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Thank you, Republicans, for this gift that keeps on giving. Hopey will CRUSH this very inarticulate fellow.

A garbage bag also makes a great "airtight" travel container for your dog.

Troglodeity March 1, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Romney in a garbage bag would look almost as ridiculous as Santorum in a sweater vest.

lochnessmonster March 1, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Custom made trash bag raincoat? Taiwan or Paris?

ottercliff March 1, 2012 at 5:12 pm

I think I dropped some change into his Dunkies cup a few weeks ago and had no idea it was him!

Maybe that's how he gets the bucks for Ann's Cadillacs??

ottercliff March 1, 2012 at 5:15 pm

OK, he never really wore a garbage bag, but he has a bunch of friends who own garbage bag factories.

BZ1 March 1, 2012 at 5:29 pm

When even the buffoon O'Reilly is giving him political advice, Mittens is doomed

Abernathy March 1, 2012 at 5:33 pm

I hear the nickname "trash bags" is free, ever since the one gal dropped off the Jersey Shore.

Abernathy March 1, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Of course, the MittBot would need to be protected from moisture BAMN, even if it means just throwing part of the packaging he came in over his head.

deanbooth March 1, 2012 at 7:34 pm

Don't be sad, be Glad© you have any clothing at all.

snackypants March 2, 2012 at 1:13 am

Mittens is a big trash talker.

Negropolis March 2, 2012 at 2:02 am

Hey, Willard, men in magic underpants shouldn't throw stones. Jis' sayin'.

"Thank you for coming to my rally in this awful <PROTOCOL: RUN STATENAME> weather. I wish you had dressed a little nicer though"

mrblifil March 2, 2012 at 9:47 am

I like his manicured and managed national campaign effort, involving friendly and compliant media personalities. Really sprang for the big bucks.

Come here a minute March 2, 2012 at 10:38 pm

Garbage bags? Fancy Mitt, even his garbage gets its own bag.
