Mitt Romney Acknowledges He Did Not ‘Speak Openly And Effectively To Minority Populations,’ Fails To Note Wetness Of Water

Average guy Mitt Romney and his wife Egg went on the CBS This Morning teevee Showcase of Disgrace to talk about why he lost so badly in the last “America’s Next Top Figurehead” contest. Oddly, he said a thing that is arguably true: “The place that my campaign and I fell short was probably in being able to speak openly and effectively to minority populations. We didn’t get as many African-American voters as we should have, didn’t get as many Hispanic voters as we should have.” We’re not so sure about the “openly” part, because when he did speak “openly” it was kind of disastrous for him. But effectively, sure. Romney was certainly not as effective at lying to minorities as he was with the white men, who unaccountably seemed to believe that Mitt Romney was the guy who would help them become or remain rich and powerful. Then again, people believe gay marriage is caused by supernatural hell-beasts, so maybe it’s not that weird after all.

So… Which Pollsters Live, Which Will Be Killed?

After 2004, two groups were blamed for making John Kerry’s loss extra sad for the liberals: those secret retards from off-the-grid caves that Karl Rove forced to vote at the last minute, and pollsters. All of the pollsters failed spectacularly on Election Day in 2004, especially with exit polls. Everyone knew that John Kerry was too much of a cocksmoker to possibly win anything, and yet these pollsters committed the CARDINAL SIN of getting Democrats’ hopes up about a national victory of any kind. But this year they tried again. Who will be first against the wall? Read more on So… Which Pollsters Live, Which Will Be Killed?…

Florida Exit Polls Indicate Several Things!

Some exit polls have come in from the Florida Republican primary, courtesy of Ronald Reagan and the National Review team: the “second wave numbers” from late afternoon have McCain at 34.3%, Romney at 32.6%, Giuliani at 15.3% and Huckabee in fourth with a golf penis. And only the National Review can provide us with a reader’s update like this: “I also noticed the political trading markets pop a bit toward Romney right after 5 o’clock. Romney had been trading in the high 30s and now he’s mid-40s.” While we await further word from Wall Street, check out some quantitive and qualitative exit poll trends from the Associated Press, after the jump!
