HOW IS BABBY FORMED?  3:16 pm September 12, 2012

Mitt Romney Does Not Care What You Tell Your Stupid Gaybies

by Kris E. Benson

Romney to You People: Get Your ShineboxHere is a fun fact about gay people that Mitt Romney learned courtesy of a group of hero gay rights activists: gay people have families! YES, actual families. But wait, you might be thinking, how is it possible that Mitt Romney had gone his whole life not knowing where gay babies come from? Is he originally from Iran, where there are no gay people? No, of course he is not from Iran, so what could possibly explain the fact that he actually said “I didn’t know you had families,” to a group of gay rights activists? And can this same explanation also help us better contextualize all the other horrible things he said to those gay right activists during that meeting?

“I looked him in the eye as we were leaving,” recalls [Julie] Goodridge, [a gay rights activist who managed to meet with Romney when he was governor]. “And I said, ‘Governor Romney, tell me — what would you suggest I say to my 8 year-old daughter about why her mommy and her ma can’t get married because you, the governor of her state, are going to block our marriage?’”

His response, according to Goodridge: “I don’t really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don’t you just tell her the same thing you’ve been telling her the last eight years.”

Of course, this was HER OWN BIOLOGICAL DAUGHTER, not her ADOPTED daughter, which once again raises questions about Mitt’s understanding of biology and where babies come from. But even so, this is great advice to tuck away in the event that a Republican becomes president for two terms. Example: what should we tell our kid when she asks us why we are living on cat food and stealing internet? Oh, that’s easy, the same thing we’ve been telling her the last eight years — something about Liberty and Freedom and the Free Market, etc. PROBLEM SOLVED.

While Goodridge cried [in his hallway], Romney brought the press into his office to give his take on the meeting.

He described it as, “Pleasant.”

How can any person be that…whatever it is he is? This is beyond clueless.

RedStatePinko September 12, 2012 at 3:22 pm

The word my 8-year-old niece uses for that kind of cluelessness is "gay."

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 12, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Bad programming?

Gleem McShineys September 12, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Wingnuts consider this a feature, not a bug.

HempDogbane September 12, 2012 at 3:36 pm

"pleasant"?

sullivanst September 12, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Callous is a good word.

Advn2rgirl September 12, 2012 at 3:59 pm

I think the word you're looking for is "shitty."

Boojum September 12, 2012 at 4:04 pm

"Person"?

Ohforcripessake September 12, 2012 at 4:16 pm

It's simple really. American Jesus isn't compassionate.

Nostrildamus September 12, 2012 at 4:34 pm

This kind of behavior was why I gave up COBOL.

mbobier September 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Actually, the "I don't really care" part is probably the truest thing that Lord Romney, the Grand Duke of Snottingham, has said during his entire campaign.

Schmannnity September 12, 2012 at 3:20 pm

But does he believe in gay polygamy?

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 12, 2012 at 3:29 pm

What's the use of having all of those wives if you don't let them put on a show for you every once in a while?

hagajim September 12, 2012 at 3:33 pm

I assume so, being as polygamy has the proper letters for gay in it. However, it might have to be bi-sexual polygamy to fly for the R'Money.

Ruhe September 12, 2012 at 4:34 pm

I'm sure that like most bigoted assholes he probably thinks that's the only kind of gay there is.

comrad_darkness September 12, 2012 at 11:12 pm

Romney's great grandfather had 12 wives, imagine the three-way possibilities there.

SpeedoFart September 12, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Proof positive that Mittens is a psychopath.

MinAgain September 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm

Or a Cyborg.

Baconzgood September 12, 2012 at 3:28 pm

David Wilson (the other homosexual activist Romney met with) said “it was like talking to a robot. No expression, no feeling.”

emmelemm September 12, 2012 at 3:33 pm

"It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear…."

Baconzgood September 12, 2012 at 3:34 pm

"…and it will not stop EVER until it's fired everyone."

Jukesgrrl September 12, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Mr. Data didn't feel pity, remorse, or fear either, but he understood that humans did. Obviously the Rombot's programming is seriously out of date.

BaldarTFlagass September 12, 2012 at 3:37 pm

HogeyeGrex September 12, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Actually, I think sociopath is more like it. The whole fucking party is based on sociopathy. Simply amazing that it has the support that it does.

Often, I fall back on saying that they're just awful people, which seems to sum it up quite well.

AncienReggie September 12, 2012 at 6:51 pm
Typodong3 September 13, 2012 at 10:48 am

No. Seriously. With no snark: Romney IS a psychopath.

Lucidamente1 September 12, 2012 at 3:21 pm

To be fair, I didn't know Mitt had a brain.

Jus_Wonderin September 12, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Hell, even a robot has more compassion than Mitt.

CommieLibunatic September 12, 2012 at 3:43 pm

The ones in Gunnerkrigg Court at least have more appreciation for life than he does.

BaldarTFlagass September 12, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Even Science Officer Ash! "I can't lie to you about your chances, but… you have my sympathies."

Willardbot9000_V2.5 September 12, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Romney, like Ash would also have admiration for the Alien monster: "I admire its purity. A survivor… unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality"…holy shit, Mitt Romney kinda IS like the Alien monster…except for the "survivor" portion…the most he's ever had to do to survive was to go without fresh Perrier for an hour…and that servant was caned and canned…

JustPixelz September 12, 2012 at 5:33 pm

My Roomba (which I call Callista because it's a robot that sucks) thanks you from the bottom of its heart.

Funny, I first read that as Dickens-ish.

Gee … there goes the gay vote.

Self-Uploader September 12, 2012 at 3:48 pm

I dunno. I think there are still a couple of log cabin republicans left whose taste for humiliation has not yet been sated.

Goonemeritus September 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

We just need to give him a little more time, the LDS church allowed blacks to be full members in the 70’s so it would follow that their church would support gay marriage early next century.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 12, 2012 at 6:43 pm

That puts them 200 years ahead of the Catholic church. Who knew: Mormons are downright progressive!

Ducksworthy September 12, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Say, can we get back to Romney shitting on the dead Americans? Thanks. I do like the picture though so thanks for that too.

Baconzgood September 12, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Making a dyke cry is pleasant. Fucking mormon fuck dick.

EatsBabyDingos September 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm

"Moronic idiots are people too my friend," said Gov. Romney, putting down his mirror.

Sue4466 September 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm

Of course Mittens didn't know gay people had families and of course he doesn't care what that woman tells her kid. He lacks any ability to understand or care about people who are not like him. Their experiences and humanity just do not register. He's a self-entitled schmuck.

HogeyeGrex September 12, 2012 at 3:35 pm

He lacks any ability to understand or care about people who are not like him.

ftfy

WhatTheHolyHeck September 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm

It's important to note that Goodridge told the entire story of her difficult childbirth and how her partner wasn't allowed into the L&D room because they weren't legally family. He sat through her narrative with a blank stare, according to eyewitnesses, and then made clear with his replies that he hadn't even been listening.

I rarely want to punch the ever living fuck out of another person with my own hands, but this is a sterling exception.

viennawoods13 September 12, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Yeah, but he's not even a real person, so it's ok.

MinAgain September 12, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Mitt Romney has heard of the concept of empathy, and he wants no truck with it.

HogeyeGrex September 12, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Trucks have more empathy than Romney.

SorosBot September 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

That Optimus Prime has a shitload of empathy, for one.

GeorgiaBurning September 12, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Doesn't he have staff to take care of such things?

Biel_ze_Bubba September 12, 2012 at 6:46 pm

It's a "requested feature" that has yet to be added to his programming.

BaldarTFlagass September 12, 2012 at 3:25 pm

he actually said “I didn’t know you had families,” to a group of gay rights activists

"I thought you people came from some hive out in Provincetown or something."

MissusBarry September 12, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Immaculate conception! It's a very jeebusful explanation.

Misty Malarky September 12, 2012 at 3:29 pm

“I don’t really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don’t you just tell her the same thing you’ve been telling her the last eight years.”

I bet she'll be telling her daughter for the next 60 years "fuck that Romney shit sack"

AncienReggie September 12, 2012 at 6:57 pm

As long as she spends the next FOUR years telling her, "Hah! Cheese weasel had it coming."

mavenmaven September 12, 2012 at 3:26 pm

His crowd gets turned on when he makes lesbian mothers cry.

delaney_blom September 12, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Allow me to rephrase: Lactating lesbian tears = latter-day saint love lubricant

BloviateMe September 12, 2012 at 3:26 pm

Judging by the smirk on his mug when talking about American dead, I'm sure he did think making someone cry was "pleasant."

She should be grateful she got out of there with her hair intact.

Mitt is a completely apathetic fuck. The question isn't "does he have a disorder," it is "how many, and what kind of disorders."

starfanglednut September 12, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Must. Not. Say. AOTK.

Nostrildamus September 12, 2012 at 4:40 pm

I bet he's missing Guinea Worm. Get on it, God!

Lucidamente1 September 12, 2012 at 3:26 pm

“I didn’t know you had families.”

"No, Governor, I have a family. What do you think I am, a Mormon?"

WhatTheHolyHeck September 12, 2012 at 3:28 pm

win X a gazillion

hagajim September 12, 2012 at 3:31 pm

And even if they didn't have children, I assume they have families. I don't think the gheyz were born in a fucking cabbage patch…maybe Mitt does.

UnholyMoses September 12, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Gay children are people too, my friend.

LesBontemps September 12, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Hey Mitt: FYI, "adopted daughter" = "daughter." Only assholes make any distinction.

Guppy September 12, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Jesus: "Fuck the widows and orphans."

Mitt's got the orphans part down; he's delegating the widows portion to Ryan.

writemeblue September 12, 2012 at 3:59 pm

thank you, because I have actual smoke coming out of my head over this one!!! I know that's not the main issue with his absolute assholery in this particular story, but I HATE it when smuggy conservative anti-choicers are all "you should adopt, blah blah," and then act like kids who were adopted are somehow less "real." GAH.

anniegetyerfun September 12, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Yes, thanks. Glad someone else thought the same thing.

fartknocker September 12, 2012 at 3:28 pm

You got to work pretty hard to be that hateful.

GemlikeFlame September 12, 2012 at 4:37 pm

No, for that you really need a Bachmann.

LesBontemps September 12, 2012 at 4:56 pm

I don't think he has to work that hard; it seems to just come naturally to him.

Franknflower September 12, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Gays are not people, my friend.

SayItWithWookies September 12, 2012 at 3:29 pm

This man deserves his own planet.

HogeyeGrex September 12, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Whatever. Just as long as he gets the fuck off of mine.

CommieLibunatic September 12, 2012 at 3:48 pm

I've got one in mind that is rich in rare and exotic elements, but the last probe we sent in registered a pressure reading of 18 bars before it was destroyed by an atmosphere of carbon dioxide and acid rain.

SayItWithWookies September 12, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Yeah but that one's only eight months' travel time from here — he needs one a lot further away before I'm comfortable. More St. Helena than Elba.

CommieLibunatic September 12, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Ah, St. Helena. So isolated, the very curvature of the Earth prevents you from detecting any other landmass from its shores.

Incitefully_Joe September 12, 2012 at 4:41 pm

You mean Future-Earth? Well, minus the rare and exotic elements, which we will have completely depleted.

CindynEncinitas September 12, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Ducksworthy September 12, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Romney mistook her biological daughter for an adopted daughter because he actually doesn't comprehend how human reproduction, the kind on this planet, works. On Kolob, only married people have babies.

skmind September 12, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Nice try, Wonkette. All this shows is that Mitt is simply not into lesbians. Maybe he's just gay.

hagajim September 12, 2012 at 3:30 pm

What do I tell my daughter? Mittens….Two women having babies….does not compute, does not compute….beep beep beep!

keinsignal September 12, 2012 at 3:30 pm

This is the guy who said he'd run to the left of Ted Kennedy on gay rights? Reading the article now, and this guy… It's incredible. I don't think he actually believes in anything at all, except the idea that he should be in charge.

hagajim September 12, 2012 at 3:35 pm

I don't think he believes he should be in charge, I think he believes he's "entitled" to be in charge.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 12, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Next thing you know, we will find out that teh Ghayez have emotions and thoughts almost like human beings.

Urban_Achiever September 12, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Well, in defense of Mitt, it's not like gay people are Corporations or anything….

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 12, 2012 at 3:31 pm

I read this earlier today. Made me want to vomit. I have no snark left for this sociopath.

emmelemm September 12, 2012 at 4:01 pm

On The Stranger/SLOG? (Me too.)

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 12, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Yes! OMG, Its like we were both pretending to work at the same time! But seriously, reading about this and then being reminded of the hair cutting incident made me want to punch somebody in the balls.

emmelemm September 12, 2012 at 4:20 pm

And by someone, you mean Mittens. As if he has any balls, anyway.

Yeah, it made me feel stabby. Very, VERY stabby.

boobookitteh September 12, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Mitt may actually be, unironically, History's Greatest Monster.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 12, 2012 at 6:51 pm

When one of Mitt's five sons admits he's gay, Mitt can learn what it's like to be in a gay family.

Fucking asshole.

Misty Malarky September 12, 2012 at 4:15 pm

He'll just be issued Magic Underwear with a lock on the ass flap.

Sivart_R1 September 12, 2012 at 4:22 pm

If experience going to high school in Idaho is any indicator, should one of Mitt's five sons admit he's gay, we'll find that the RMoney family only has four sons…

(retroactively)

Ohforcripessake September 12, 2012 at 4:36 pm

If they're smart, they'll wait until they have their inheritance before they come out.

OneDollarJuana September 12, 2012 at 4:38 pm

First son to admit he's gay gets tied to the roof.

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 12, 2012 at 3:33 pm

In Mitt's mind, not calling them all faggots and dykes to their faces counted as a win. Hence the "pleasant" meeting.

Nostrildamus September 12, 2012 at 4:48 pm

It was "pleasant" because no one directly criticized him. He had to pretend listen to some losers whining, but they got what they deserved (nothing), and he was humming a happy tune in his head, so no prob.

WhatTheHeck September 12, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Well, if she had given birth legally to that baby, there would be no problem. But gay mothers continue to give birth illegally, causing this misconception amongst mormon governors.

emmelemm September 12, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Illegally and illegitimately.

SexySmurf September 12, 2012 at 3:33 pm

At least he didn't try to cut her hair.

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 12, 2012 at 3:34 pm

It would take too long to hold her down until it grew out to a more ladylike length.

starfanglednut September 12, 2012 at 4:28 pm

In other words, "if your question doesn't pertain to me making more money, I don't give a frack."

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 12, 2012 at 3:34 pm

I just want to make sure, but isn't "have a family" just gay slang for "have an orgy"?

Guppy September 12, 2012 at 3:54 pm

What isn't gay slang for "orgy?"

gullywompr September 12, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Honey Romney don't care.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 12, 2012 at 6:53 pm

I think you mean, "Money badger doesn't give a shit."

gullywompr September 12, 2012 at 10:16 pm

Better.

OneYieldRegular September 12, 2012 at 3:36 pm

One rather sterling definition of "awkward" would be: Mitt Romney standing alone in the Hole in the Wall Saloon in San Francisco.

Antispandex September 12, 2012 at 3:36 pm

"While Goodridge cried [in his hallway], Romney brought the press into his office to give his take on the meeting."

"Boys don't cry", Romney said, completely missing the ironic turddom of his insensitive remarks. "Shithead" was the response most often heard from the crowd on the other side of his heavy, hand carved, mahogany door, as the press, unquestioningly, copied his paltitudes.

*Fixed…Now I can haz journalism jobs?*

Mahousu September 12, 2012 at 3:36 pm

A single quote that summarizes pretty much Romney's entire campaign, if not life:
[...] he says he’s not sure Romney intended to be offensive. “It felt like there was a lord/serf relationship,” remembers Friedes.

CommieLibunatic September 12, 2012 at 3:40 pm

Fuck man, even Tachikomas are more emotional than the M.I. Double-Tizzle.

Guppy September 12, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Their boss was pretty much a lesbian, and in the military at that.

Callyson September 12, 2012 at 3:41 pm

“I don’t really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don’t you just tell her the same thing you’ve been telling her the last eight years.”

OK:

"Sweetheart, Mommy's bad mood has nothing to do with you: the Republicans have done yet another thing to fu–um, mess up our country. Mommy's going to do everything she can to get rid of them. OK, sleep tight…love you…"

HogeyeGrex September 12, 2012 at 3:41 pm

What a loathsome sack of shit.

That is all.

SayItWithWookies September 12, 2012 at 3:41 pm

And another gay rights adovcate described this:

"[Mittens] made clear that he was willing to listen to business leaders about the issue of family recognition. The impression was that if business leaders told him certain benefits and protections would increase the productivity of gay workers, he would be open to supporting those. … It was not really about what these protections would do for gay families, but what they would do for the titans of industry… It felt like there was a lord/serf relationship."

Gee, who would imagine that Bishop/CEO Mitt Romney might not have any idea that the help might have the same type of humanity that The LORD granted him? It only makes sense, of course, if the little people think they've experienced every kind of exaltation that the Chosen have — and really, how would they know any better?

schvitzatura September 13, 2012 at 8:36 am

4%-10% of population as drones + work = $$profits$$!!!

CommieLibunatic September 12, 2012 at 3:45 pm

I guess they share the same penny-pinching policies. Sounds more plausible to me than self-loathing, anyway.

Guppy September 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Death before taxes.

Blueb4sinrise September 12, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Tax deduction!!!!! Mitt!!! Tax deduction!!!!!

MonkeyMotion September 12, 2012 at 3:48 pm

"Pleasant"?

I think that'd better describe the angry mob's reaction after beating whatever little sense is left in Mitten's head out of him with rubber chickens.

iTuna September 12, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Man, fuck that fool.

kingofqueenanne September 12, 2012 at 3:52 pm

"I didn't know you had families…"

Nope! I was totally torn from the thigh of Zeus.

Terrible robotic man is terrible.

delaney_blom September 12, 2012 at 3:54 pm

I'm surprised he really didn't care what she told her daughter.

"You should tell your daughter that her mothers cannot marry each other, but they could both be married to the same man concurrently, as long as they tithe to the LDS church, wear special underwear, keep a doomsday stockpile of canned food, feast on the flesh of non-believers . . ."

Incitefully_Joe September 12, 2012 at 3:54 pm

“I don’t really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don’t you just tell her the same thing you’ve been telling her the last eight years.”

"Because Republicans are assholes."

Incitefully_Joe September 12, 2012 at 3:55 pm

I didn't know Mitt Romney had a family, either. I assumed he just had a model line.

Pat_Pending September 12, 2012 at 3:58 pm

I find Mitt to be an embarrassment to sociopaths everywhere.

It's also been suggested that Mitt has Aspberger's. I don't think the 'Aspies' would have him either.

finallyhappy September 12, 2012 at 4:00 pm

no one better try to excuse that sack of shit by saying he is an Aspie or on the spectrum. The idea that people on the spectrum have no empathy is bullshit

OneDollarJuana September 12, 2012 at 4:41 pm

My daughter has had friends with Aspberger's. Even though a bit odd, they were much more compassionate than Mitt.

Incitefully_Joe September 12, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Fuck no we wouldn't.

magic_titty September 12, 2012 at 3:58 pm

His douchebaggery insults douchebags.

Its not Mitt's fault. None of his servants have families.

Silly lesbian. The only way to get Romney to respond is to ask questions like, "Governor Romney, how will I explain to my 20 year-old trust fund that I can't grant access to my partner? You know, TO MY MONEY?"

His ears would perk right up.

i have to say, as much as i never want to see this tool 100 miles or 10,000 years within shot of the presidency, i also get the willies thinking about the poor SOBs who had to work for him.

I think I read elsewhere that this blatant example of Mitztler rMoney's complete incomprehension of the concepts of compassion and empathy is from his days as Governor. But allow me to use this to highlight another item – this also exemplifies the all too common bastardization, and dog-whistle-fortifying, of an important word: Family. Witness how his pin-point-narrow definition disallows him to even recognize that Goodridge – or any LGBT persons – have a Family.

The dehumanizing effect is beyond chilling to me, and is all I would have ever needed to know to shun him as unworthy of any consideration whatsoever, let alone allowing him anywhere near being POTUS.

It goes back to his days at Bain . . . all those laid-off workers didn't have families either. They were just liabilites, to be shed, for the sake of the almighty bottom line.

I'm beginning to realize that Mittens fucks up more as the pressure on him builds. Should be a couple of interesting months…

Yup, we might be treated to a political meltdown unseen since that other guy caned Senator Sumner on the floor of the Senate.

My money's on the debates. I suspect Barack has a few ideas of which buttons to press.

1. Woman
2. Gay

I'm surprised he even spoke to her.

His response, according to Goodridge: “I don’t really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don’t you just tell her the same thing you’ve been telling her the last eight years.”

Really, fuck that guy. I totally believe Goodridge because this is completely something Romney, and only Romney should say. It's not even a proper "fuck off, bitch." It's said with the ambivalence only a Willard Romney can muster.

Fuckin sociopath.

You know, he tells us that corporations are people, but he's having the hardest of times convincing the American electorate that robots are people, isn't he?

He was so nervous, so uncomfortable during that meeting it makes me wonder if he expected one of the boys he fooled around with in prep school (one he didn't abuse by forcibly cutting his hair) to show up and dish. I'd be willing to bet there are a couple.
