PARANOIA WILL DESTROY YA  9:56 am June 1, 2012

Romney Campaign Starting To Get Weird

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Amercia!You guys, we are starting to worry about the Mitt Romney campaign. They seem to be getting a little paranoid, like they’ve maybe read one too many email forwards from Glenn Beck. The event was a double-secret press conference at the solar energy company Solyndra — “double-secret,” obviously, because if the President’s vast army of drones found out about it, they would be surrounded by black UN helicopters and herded onto FEMA trains.

The Thursday visit was kept a tight secret by the Romney campaign, which told reporters they needed to travel in a campaign bus to an undisclosed location.

A Romney adviser said the campaign had concealed the event location for fear the Obama administration would somehow prevent them from staging it. [...]

Really, Romney advisor? Like how? Maybe they would have some of their staffers show up and blow bubbles and vuvuzelas in a big Brooks Brothers/Burning Man party? Oh haha no, that is what you did yesterday! So is it something more sinister? (It is something more sinister!)

During his news conference, Romney alluded to protests organized by Democratic activists that have disrupted several previous campaign events, and said his campaign had wanted to head off any efforts by his rivals to keep him from speaking.

OH RIGHT. You were afraid black people would show up and call Romney “garbage.” But of course if you said you were afraid of protesters, that would sound silly. So it is much better to be afraid that the President himself is out to get you, using his network of flying monkeys and city zoning boards to deny you your basic right to hold a press conference. Tell us more, TPM:

Reporters raised the question of how this devious plot to derail the event would work, given that the freedom to hold a press conference in public is a fairly basic right.

“Well, he’s only the president of the United States,” the adviser replied. “I mean, they could work with town officials to deny us access.”

#Fail, Romney advisor. You can either own up to being afraid of blahs and Bay Area hippies, or you can sound like Nixon’s Ghost on a Bender. Nobody liked drunk, paranoid, End of Days Nixon, wandering the East Wing hallways muttering about enemies and Jews.

He should have waited until today to go. We'd all be out at the casinos squandering our food stamps, disability checks, welfare checks, and social security checks in celebration of the first of the month.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:04 am

You get yours by the first?

Damn SorosExpress! They don't deliver mine until the fifth!

But thinking bout it, you're right: a bunch of people would have headed over to disrupt things, especially if they were short on their quotas for the month.

Barb June 1, 2012 at 10:11 am

Direct deposit, Baby!

I read something funny last night. Romney is flaunting his Mexican heritage to the Hispanic population, aka "Hispandering."

WunkRocker June 1, 2012 at 10:18 am

BIRF CETIFUCKATE!!!!!
<ahem>
Hey, Hopey is all keen on predator drone strikes. And these arse monkeys say enough that is treasonous… Bring the drones home and protect Fortress Amercia! The battle begins in Tampa!

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:30 am

Oddly, that town is on the Prez's list.

God bless him. I've been to Tampa. Spent a week there one night

M. Bouffant June 2, 2012 at 2:01 am

Only reason we gots our munnies today is the third's on Sunday, & the gummint don't want Mistah Doctah Landlord to have to wait 'til Monday fo' his pound of flesh.

Jadetiger79 June 2, 2012 at 4:37 am

I loved that song.

tihond June 1, 2012 at 9:59 am

Not even a mention of Vincent Foster? You're slipping, right wing.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:00 am

Starting, Editrix? We live on the same planet, right?

Chow Yun Flat June 1, 2012 at 10:00 am

Romney doesn't know any Jews.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:07 am

Oh please! The man dealt with international bankers…

sewollef June 1, 2012 at 10:13 am

Maybe not personally, but I'm sure he's bought and sold a few.

Chow Yun Flat June 1, 2012 at 12:45 pm

I should have added that he has baptized a few Jews after they died.

Limeylizzie June 1, 2012 at 10:00 am

Come on Wonketteers, let's show up in our magic underwear and fling poo, next time Mittens speaks.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:04 am

But I don't wear underwear!

C_R_Eature June 1, 2012 at 10:06 am

I'm not wearing any underwear and you can't make me.

Limeylizzie June 1, 2012 at 10:08 am

That's the way I like you, don't go changing.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:10 am

He can't change underwear, that's for sure.

C_R_Eature June 1, 2012 at 10:25 am

Thanks, LL.
In fairness, it's almost impossible to find quality undergarments with 8 leg openings.

glamourdammerung June 1, 2012 at 2:16 pm

In fairness, it's almost impossible to find quality undergarments with 8 leg openings.

Especially when five of the legs are on one side?

SorosBot June 1, 2012 at 10:16 am

Well I'm wearing underwear – and nothing else.

C_R_Eature June 1, 2012 at 10:40 am

Reading all the responses, It looks as if you're the only one here who wears underwear.

I think that what the Romney campaign really needs is to be followed by a
Green Man.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:42 am

Maybe that's the natural balance of things.

Maybe there's an equilibrium of underwearing, and for each one of us that go commando, Bot here wears a pair of underwear for them.

Must get awfully warm in the summer.

UW8316154 June 1, 2012 at 10:33 am

#Commando style

FakaktaSouth June 1, 2012 at 10:06 am

Oh good lord Lizzie, come on now, I am not about to start wearing underwear for Mitt Romney. But otherwise, I'm in.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:11 am

Show up anyway. We can call ourselves "Commandoes for Romney." Bet we get invited onto the podium, then we can moon and flash the audience.

prommie June 1, 2012 at 10:25 am

But its MAGIC underwear.

Jimmyone June 1, 2012 at 10:28 am

If I wanted to fling poo……..after last night, I'd have to throw my underwear.

Limeylizzie June 1, 2012 at 10:43 am

Win the day with that ghastly visual.

thatsitfortheother1 June 1, 2012 at 10:53 am

I like you. You have less Pness than I do.

Barb June 1, 2012 at 10:32 am

The only thing magic about my unders is that they disappeared last night and I can't find them.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:42 am

*toeing them under the night table*

Well, you were pretty drunk…

Barb June 1, 2012 at 10:58 am

Wait until you see my drinking schedule for tonight!

"ROMNEY CAMPAIGN STARTING TO GET WEIRD"

Starting? Where have you been for the last year or so?

Come here a minute June 1, 2012 at 10:02 am

Mitt Romney just needs to kneel down in prayer with Henry Kissinger and everything will be hunky-dory again.

weejee June 1, 2012 at 10:07 am

Mittens had a cry today. If only he had blind faith.

FraAnima June 1, 2012 at 10:16 am

He still wouldn't be able to find his way home.

weejee June 1, 2012 at 10:19 am

He's just Mr. Fantasy who needz to give in to the spark of high-heeled boyz.

Arken June 1, 2012 at 10:03 am

I believe you mean it's starting to get wierd.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:03 am

Hang on, the security couldn't have been that tight, since I read about the event by 9AM, EDT. On the Google.

sewollef June 1, 2012 at 10:18 am

On the Google.

So old school.

I read it on the Flipboard app thingie for iPad, with my favourite kittie by my side.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:32 am

I'm an old fart a traditionalist.

SorosBot June 1, 2012 at 10:06 am

Obama has been taking lessons from George H. W. Bush and his plans to interrupt Ross Perot's daughter's wedding!

Sharkey June 1, 2012 at 10:06 am

AMERCIA #1!

undisclosed location, #2.

Exhausted66 June 1, 2012 at 10:12 am

FCUK YEAH!

WABishop June 1, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Heh, I had a #2 in my undisclosed location.

glamourdammerung June 1, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Breitbart is still dead.

Joshua Norton June 1, 2012 at 10:06 am

Well, he’s only the president of the United States,” the adviser replied. “I mean, they could work with town officials to deny us access

The mind of a a Romney-ite is an amazing thing. It works as if one was to stick the Official Neocon Dictionary in a shredder and then paste up random strips of paper until one ran out of mucilage. Word salad doesn’t even *begin* to describe it.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:13 am

He's the President of Amercia, Mitt. He could shoot your plane down if he wanted to. Maybe you should take off your girl-panties and man up.

sewollef June 1, 2012 at 10:21 am

Sounds like how the lyrics to Moonage Daydream were constructed.

But without the drugs and make up.

Ok, ok, with the make up.

freakishlywrong June 1, 2012 at 10:06 am

The Romney campaign has always been deeply weird. Since the nearly 90 years ago when he first started running. (Is it me, or has this fucker been around foreva?)

Schmannnity June 1, 2012 at 10:07 am

If Romney is elected, get ready for a four-year replay of "if you criticize the President, you are only helping the terrorists and the enemies of America."

Chichikovovich June 1, 2012 at 10:48 am

"if you criticize the President Commander in Chief, with our troops in harms way, you are only helping the terrorists and the enemies of America."

fuflans June 1, 2012 at 11:09 am

please don't put these words together:

'romney' and 'is' and 'elected'.

unless you also include 'never', 'going' and 'to be'.

thx.

PeaceWithHonor June 1, 2012 at 10:08 am

Liddy and Ollie North should job share his security.

sewollef June 1, 2012 at 10:28 am

G. Gordon is one serious wackjob. He should be locked up for his and our safety. How he ended up on the radio is beyond me, but then this is America.

And Glenn Beck is on radio and a doofus like Mittens can run for El Presidente, so I guess anything is possible in this great land!

ManchuCandidate June 1, 2012 at 10:08 am

Sweet Mormoni Alien Jeebus, Romboto. If you're afraid of Demoncraps, blahs and hippies then you'll definitely need Depends if you become Preznit.

Schmannnity June 1, 2012 at 10:13 am

I sure hope Ahmadinejad and Putin have only kind words for Mitt. I'd hate for him to wet his magic underwear.

Terry June 1, 2012 at 10:25 am

Putin won't have to speak a word to make Mitt wet himself. Putin will just remove his shirt and flex.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:53 am

I know that makes me all uncomfortable in my naughty zone.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:27 am

Right? I mean, imagine a President like this when the Zombie Apocalypse happens!

I want a President who's going to pick up an M-16 and stand on top of a pile of zombies, chomping on a cigar and firing at the horde climbing up the White House lawn, not this candy-ass wimp!

Judith_Priest June 1, 2012 at 10:44 am

Yes! And next to him on the pile of zombies, firing for all she's worth, the FLOTUS!

Michelle was born for that role.
Ann Romney would be devoured in the first five minutes of the action. She'd be the idiot who ran back to look for her dolly (or horsie) in the zombie-infested building.

actor212 June 1, 2012 at 10:52 am

Oh man, I see Michelle wearing a blah tank top and a blah headband and blah Daisy Dukes, with knives strapped to her thighs and two maces strapped across her back and a pair of submachine guns spitting fire and–

I'll be in my bunk!

Judith_Priest June 1, 2012 at 11:08 am

I think we have a couple of dueling images for our campaign poster:

Michelle & Barack fight off zombie apocalypse single-handedly with mighty (and intelligently-planned) arsenal

vs.

Mitt and Ann swat zombies with their embroidered hankies

Judith_Priest June 1, 2012 at 11:09 am

Can Michelle have thigh-high boots, too?

chascates June 1, 2012 at 10:09 am

Any time you see a Romney for President sign or sticker please write 'Hugh' in front of Romney. Hugh Romney, aka Wavy Gravy.

OneDollarJuana June 1, 2012 at 10:14 am

On the other hand, it's June 1, and Washingtonians can now buy liquor in the grocery store, just like civilized people.

Let's see: eggs, bread, milk, fifth of Jack. We're good!

Terry June 1, 2012 at 10:26 am

Eh, I still prefer Calvert Liquors, Pearson's, or even Morris Miller.

Mumbletypeg June 1, 2012 at 10:30 am

Do what now? Srsly, is this for real, I'm just curious. Not in DC but a Virginian here, wants to know details!

UW8316154 June 1, 2012 at 10:37 am

This in the "other" Washington, Mumbles, sorry to get your hopes up.

SorosBot June 1, 2012 at 10:44 am

Shouldn't that be "Washington Staters" to avoid confusion with the important Washington then?

OldWhiteLies June 1, 2012 at 11:25 am

NAH, Washington DCers just need to start using their full name. It is just another example of the bubble DCers have been in since – hell since forever nearly. We over here had to start adding "state" to our name out of frustrated necessity.

Just sayin.

fartknocker June 1, 2012 at 10:30 am

I envy ye Washingtonians. We here in Texas must purchase fine bourbon from a purveyor whose only business is the storage and sale of distilled spirits. I find it fascinating that when I make business trips to San Diego that I can go to a store named Ralph and purchase soup, eggs, bacon and whiskey at the same establishment. Liquor laws are pretty stupid and varied across America.

Judith_Priest June 1, 2012 at 10:48 am

This is what Mr. Priest, an Ohio transplant, loves the very most about California living! You can buy Balvenie Doublewood at the grocery store.

And it's "Ralph's", God bless 'em. Also Von's, Albertson's, Pavilions, etc. In my favorite store the heavy-duty booze is right next to the butter and yogurt aisle.

OldWhiteLies June 1, 2012 at 10:33 am

Careful. This whole buy booze in grocery stores thing here has done some jerb killing. So it must be with appropriate humility that we exercise our new found ease of booze buying.

But still and all … if you notice a 6 ft, 14 stone, 50ish redhead guy in a grocery store, silently weeping with joy and awe while slowly panning the newly stocked entire aisle of booze, that'll be me.

CHEERS FELLOW WASHINGTONIANS!

Mumbletypeg June 1, 2012 at 10:56 am

This whole buy booze in grocery stores thing here has done some jerb killing.

Fisting because, yeah. Often the price paid for convenience of shopping leads to a death knell for the smaller providers (of employment to some; of product and often solid knowledge of product/ competency in staffing & managing & knowing one's customer base).
Liquor regulation varies state-to-state, true, but for another example: long after CVS or WalMart started offering photo development, I kept taking my film to the local photo shop — it helped they kept multiple locations running, the staff at the downtown one got to know me — and there's no price to quote on the added value of that, or of seeing folks doing a job they loved; and no way to tell if we'll get that back having gone whole hog for the luxury of "convenience."

HippieEsq June 1, 2012 at 10:35 am

Meh….when I can can fill my weed RX at the 24-hour CVS in DuPont, then I'll celebrate.

UW8316154 June 1, 2012 at 10:36 am

Hooray! Except for the fact that now our booze costs alot more than it did yesterday. Freemarket Fail.

BerkeleyBear June 1, 2012 at 11:07 am

All of unbaked Portland gives our neighbors to the north the finger. (The baked portion is still inhaling Cheetos dust from the munchies attack).

I've never lived anywhere with this weird 2 locations for different kinds of alcohol setup. Especially mind blowing to me was how the grocery stores stock all the goodies to make cocktails but no alcohol – and the liquor stores shut down at 7 or something ridiculous, so you can't just make a booze run when it is convenient. It was almost as horrible a discovery as when I found out Indiana still had a Sunday blue law for buying booze retail (you can get shit faced in a bar or restaurant, or even a wine tasting room, but fuck you if you want a six pack to watch the NFL).

In its limited defense, though, the selection in the OLCC licensed stores is pretty amazing.

WABishop June 1, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Here in NH it's "live free or die" all the live-long day but you still have to buy your liquor from the gubmint.

C_R_Eature June 1, 2012 at 10:19 am

"Starting to"?

I saw Hunter S. Thompson on tour, in a bar, many Moons ago during Gulf War #1. He showed up late (of course) drunk on Crown Royal, brandishing a prank hammer with an electronic chip that sounded like breaking glass when he whacked things or people.
He read excerpts from Revelations about how we were all Doomed and took questions from the audience.
When I got hold of the mike I asked him "If America Got Normal during the Reagan Administration, is it time for America to Get Weird now?" (hey, I was pretty drunk at the time – that's the best I could muster).
Thompson looked at me open-mouthed, in Fear and Loathing, and shouted "GET Weird?!", then launched into a tirade on how hardcore Weird the Reagan years were.

So: GET Weird?! Just when the hell was this campaign ever Normal?

Mumbletypeg June 1, 2012 at 10:20 am

TAGGED: PARANOIA WILL DESTROY YA

"Well I fell asleep/ Then I woke
Feelin' kinda queer
something something can't remember

One of these days, you're gonna self-destruct'." ♫

I recall, as a young teenager, sort-of falling in love with Ray Davies after hearing him sing-speak this for the first time.

Haven't listened to that in years…should I whip out the vinyl or make the itunes purchase?!

C_R_Eature June 1, 2012 at 6:14 pm

I think they did a fine job with the digital translation, but then I'm no Vinyl Snob. But, can't you do both?

oldedinvn June 1, 2012 at 10:22 am

What the fuck do you mean starting to get weird. In 3 grafs or less, tell me what you consider weird.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

Billmatic June 1, 2012 at 10:25 am

Mitt has to court the Tin Foil Hat demographic hard these days, they already think he's some kind of shape shifting alien from a binary world but he's better than the other shape shifting alien we've got.

Didn't someone once say that when the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro? Or go commando? Anyway, thats some Catch, probably the best there is.

Judith_Priest June 1, 2012 at 10:50 am

It's "weird", not "wierd" … unless you're the Romney campaign.

And it was Hunter S. Thompson who said that, FSM rest his soul.

prommie June 1, 2012 at 10:59 am

hey, its not after C, and its not "neighbor" or "weigh," so fuck "weird," I am not memorizing any more exceptions.

Judith_Priest June 1, 2012 at 11:11 am

Allow me to further mess with your mind re mnemonic for other common exceptions:

"Weird height and foreign leisure
Neither seize nor forfeit either."

Plus it's just good advice.

freakishlywrong June 1, 2012 at 10:29 am

Fake-heckling the AXE yesterday was a deft touch though. Here we go, right back to the Summer of Hate. "We are currently hating gays, will move to "illegals" shortly and pivot to Muslins just in time for the convention. We always hate the poors and the blahs."

fartknocker June 1, 2012 at 10:35 am

I just saw my first Romney yard sign down here in south Austin today. It's very pretty and very American but upon closer examination, it appears that it was printed in China. I can't wait to watch the quality of teevee ads that $700 million will buy between now and November. Oh, and I'm sure the robo-calls will be equally entertaining and informative.

BerkeleyBear June 1, 2012 at 11:10 am

If you can get a pic of the made in china logo, hay will be made with it. Not making campaign shit in the US, while running on job creation, sells itself.

randcoolcatdaddy June 1, 2012 at 10:38 am

Sounds like an overdose of Amercia to me. Don't worry – just breath deeply and keep calm. The jitters and spiders crawling on your skin will stop shortly.

Wilcoxyz June 1, 2012 at 10:39 am

Remember just a couple years back when conservatives were advocating/defending folks bringing guns to Obamacare town halls. For safety. Good times.

TheMightyHaltor June 1, 2012 at 10:41 am

Maybe he meant A Mercia. Mitt's quite the Anlgo-Saxon scholar.

If he's still acting strange, restore him to the point at which he told Newt Gingrich that they were all corporate bought whores and reload differential back-ups betwixt here and there.

“Well, he’s only the president of the United States,” the adviser replied. “I mean, they could work with town officials to deny us access.”

A nice insight into how the Romney campaign sees the power of the presidency.

BerkeleyBear June 1, 2012 at 11:11 am

Shrinking government to where it can control your very thoughts.

johnnyzhivago June 1, 2012 at 11:15 am

Very good insight… Back during my brief stint in local politics a newly elected person on the township committee told me he was taking some sort of course on Municipal government. I asked him why (given that in our township the only thing that ever came up was runoff problems) and he said "so I can find out what I can legally get away with".

And he turned out to be a major league jerk.

glamourdammerung June 1, 2012 at 2:35 pm

A nice insight into how the Romney campaign sees the power of the presidency.

Well, it does fit into the whole "theodemocracy" thing.

Wile E. Quixote June 1, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Psychological projection. It's how Republicans roll.

Mitt and his people really don't understand the first thing about human beings, do they.

niblick77 June 1, 2012 at 11:01 am

Mitt is just afraid of the COMMON man! (I won't even tell you what he thinks about women.)

prommie June 1, 2012 at 11:03 am

Hey, OT, but I just figured out why my co-workers all go around fretting and talking and holding conferences about irrelevant concerns that don't matter and ain't ever gonna happen anyway, based on some day-dreamed up ignorance-based daydreaming!

Its because its way easier solving fake, made-up, illusionary problems, than it is solving the real problems.

Took me 25 years into my working career to figure this shit out. No wonder I am such a fucking loser.

Wile E. Quixote June 1, 2012 at 3:11 pm

So now you're ready for a career in politics or the media.

BerkeleyBear June 1, 2012 at 11:13 am

Anyone remember when Axelrod said they'd highlight how weird Romney is, and Romney's people claimed it was a Mormon slam? Guess he might have had a clue about something, huh?

fuflans June 1, 2012 at 11:14 am

today we all wander the East Wing hallways muttering about enemies and Jews.

and sometimes ts eliot.

Mitt's just hearkening back to the days when his religion was under seige by a nation that regarded it as alien and repressed it heavily, which itself hearkens back to the days when Christianity was so regarded — you know, like one thousand seven hundred years ago.

Though for someone worth a quarter of a billion dollars and running as a representative of the world's richest assholes to pretend he's repressed and running an underground campaign that's running from The Man — well — that's just a little projection, in case you're wondering what dissent might look like under a Romney administration.

99% + vuvuzelas = revuvulution?

Romney's campaign should be weird, to attract his base.

"Certainly I will get into a bus and be driven to an unknown location at the behest of paranoid, right-wing nutters."

I'm guessing not one of those reporters was black.

"Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone mocked the the Romney campaign's efforts. "Thank you for the bubbles," Curtatone said. "It's a hell of a lot better than the smoke Mitt Romney blew at us ten years ago and that he's blowing across America!""

Oh, SNAP!

Jon Chait had a good piece the other day about why Romney is sticking with Donald Trump, and it's pretty clear the Romney campaign has been taken over by paranoid anger balls who listen to way too much Faux News and right-wing radio. Chait has a link to a good profile of Eric "Etch-A-Sketch" Fehrnstrom, who sounds like Karl Rove without the subtlety. Christ, is 10:30 in the morning too early to start drinking?

Mittens is not introspective enough to ever realize that Barry wants him to open his pie-hole at every possible event. Romney's tongue is Barry's secret weapon, my friend.

Per the request of GOP elder GHW Bush, Romney's first act as president will be to rename the country Amer-C.I.A.

At first, I thought it was really pathetic of Romney to be this afraid of imaginary "Obama goons". Then, I remember that this is the same clown that can not even stand up to Donald Trump.

Well, he’s only the president of the United States,” the adviser replied. “I mean, they could work with town officials to deny us access.

Adviser is just thinking about how he will do things when he is a powerful flying monkey under Pres Mittens.

Mormons & other right-wingers being paranoid? History may have to be rewritten.

Biel_ze_Bubba June 2, 2012 at 11:05 am

Wait … a bunch of Romnoids told people to hop on this bus, to be taken to an undisclosed location … and they went????

Far too hot for summer. We all could wear Kilts, Regimental Style instead.

We'd be True Scotsmen!

C_R_Eature June 1, 2012 at 11:25 am

Wi' nae Trews. Indeed.

WunkRocker June 1, 2012 at 11:37 am

My parents are olds,( living outside of Tampa. They believe the preezy is a secret muzlin and have issues with Romnoid because of his majik underoos.) The parenthetical part is redundant. Also.

WunkRocker June 1, 2012 at 11:39 am

All you guys are poseur wonketteers. Look at the new Cat Lady logo. I have on vinyl underoos and nipple clamps.

C_R_Eature June 1, 2012 at 11:47 am

You're an inspiration to us all.
Are you attending the next Romney rally?

glamourdammerung June 1, 2012 at 2:20 pm

The funny thing is that all of the olds in my in-laws family are either not going to show up or more likely vote for President Obama due to the whole "torturing the family pet like a serial killer" thing. Apparently I am not alone in my stance that no one that acts like a serial killer should have access to nukes.

C_R_Eature June 1, 2012 at 2:21 pm

It's a real problem. No one likes to swim in circles all day long.

WunkRocker June 1, 2012 at 3:33 pm

If I can get my Mistress to brown shower me right before hand. I might need a ride. Can you assist? …could be a slight mess.

LetUsBray June 1, 2012 at 10:02 pm

I just call that place DC. West coast is the best coast.

UW8316154 June 1, 2012 at 10:45 pm

West Coast Fresh, ya'all!
