The Lunatic Is On The Hill

Ann Romney Worries About Mitt’s Brain Parts If He’s Elected

Hail to the Derp!Ann Romney is just plain baiting the Professional Comedy Industry now, isn’t she? Over the weekend, she said in an interview that if her servo-mechanical partner becomes President, her “biggest concern, obviously, would just be for his mental well-being.” We share Egg’s concerns. No one wants to see the President of 53 Percent of the United States reduced to a clinking, clanking, clattering collection of caliginous junk, after all.

What the FLOTUS-wannabe actually meant, of course, is that Mitt is simply so super speedy and smart that it goes without saying that mere policy stuff will be a cinch, duh:

“I have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness and his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy, in his understanding of what’s missing right now in the economy – you know, pieces that are missing to get this jumpstarted,” she continued. “So for me I think it would just be the emotional part of it.”

You see? After he finds his Missing Piece, Mitt will get the economy fixed on Day One, and everything will be ready to go! (He also intends to turn to the Giving Tree* for advice on forest management. Comfortable stumps for all Old People to sit on! Who needs Medicare?)

First Ladies have traditionally taken on projects for improving America. Nancy Reagan ended drug abuse, Laura Bush worked for childhood literacy, Michelle Obama is trying to prevent the conversion of children into huge tubs of lard. It appears that the android’s gal-pal will devote her First Ladyhood to ensuring that Mitt’s precious fee-fees are never hurt, and that the filthy peasants in this country recognize what a precious, precious gift Mitt is giving to us all:

“This is hard and, you know, it’s an important thing that we’re doing right now and it’s an important election and it is time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt’s qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country.”

We seriously hope to help ensure Mr. Romney’s future mental stability. Just as he is willing to sacrifice for us, we are willing to go without his leadership, just to make sure he doesn’t crack up under the strain of trying to govern us.

* Also, may we just briefly mention what a fucked-up, codependent vision of “love” The Giving Tree envisions? If there’s an accomplished art-maker person out there, please email Your Correspondent and we’ll talk about collaborating on a more accurate version, to be titled The Taking Boy (Wonkette Books, 2013).

    Ann's need to describe her sacrifices as so very important gets completely up my ass. She's somehow donating her time to the less fortunate, by walking swiftly past that homeless guy, eyes averted, clutching her handbag trying to figure out how she came to be in such a shitty neighborhood.

    Aw Dok — give The Giving Tree a break! I love that story.. It's Missing Piece that fucked up many a relationship to my thinking — as if there's *one* person with just the right shape to "fit" with another to make both's troubles melt away. Pfft — but it was a seductively appealing idea at the time.. as with Richard Bach's soul-matey treatise Bridge Across Forever [And Into Divorce, once the best seller euphoria wore off]

    " how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt’s qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country."

    Gah, so she basically thinks we all should be bowing down and thanking Mitt for running for President, and of course he just deserves to have the Presidency handed to him without having to work for it like everything else in his life. What a horrid entitled woman.

    • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

      That is exactly what she thinks. whereas my opinion is that Mittens has a hell of a nerve running for president based on the claim that he can fix the economy, when it's fat cat sleazeball motherfuckers like him who tanked it in the first place.

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    I don’t think she needs to worry about Mitt’s mental health. He would need to be a sentient being first.
