Mitt on a skewer

In the fraternal spirit of New England blogging, I wanted to tell everyone about Lost Nation TV, a New Hampshire-based blog. Billed by Sam Smith of Progressive Review as the "father of the political blog," progenitor Jack McEnany is an equal opportunity crank, skewering both parties at every opportunity.

Being such an inclusive fellow and supporter of fellow bloggers, I won't hold it against my Granite State neighbors for their lower taxes, better roads and that they drive nicer cars. As long as they keep providing "the goods" on the various candidates, I'm grateful.

Like this one about Mitt Romney, former Massachusetts Governor, man of the people and, well, hypocrite. Read it and chuckle, as McEnany zings ole' Mitty. Seems rich folk need more help than the rest of us keeping the estate maintained.

Mitt the Hypocrite

Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) has a major Zoe Baird problem. It seems he’s been using illegal aliens to make his little 2 ½ acre Garden of Eden in Belmont, Massachusetts tidy and beautiful. Alvarez Rosales, a recently-repatriated Guatemalan claims that as an employee of Community Lawn Service with a Heart, he kept Mitt’s garden green for eight years.

Mitt, ever the duplicitous conniver, endorses the Taco Curtain concept, and number four in his 10-point plan to keep America great is Getting Immigration Right:

Immigration has been an important part of our nation's success. The current system, however, puts up a concrete wall to the best and brightest, yet those without skill or education are able to walk across the border. We must reform the current immigration laws so we can secure our borders, implement a mandatory biometrically enabled, tamper proof documentation and employment verification system, and increase legal immigration into America.

Do illegal gardeners fall into the “without skill or education” category, or the “best and brightest” division?

Who names their kid "Mitt" anyways!! Now maybe we're on to why Mitt is Mitt.

It seems as though the bar for politicians gets lowered each and every election. No need to grasp the complexity of the issues, or have any foreign policy knowledge--just look good in a suit, have a head of hair and a nice smile (and millions of dollars, btw) and you're on your way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

I miss having candidates who at least gave the appearance that they knew what they were talking about.

Could the Republicans have any worse a group of contenders than Mitt, McCain and that hideous law-and-order fascist, Giuliani?

Since the Dems (the gang who couldn't shoot straight) will manage to f*ck it up, one of those three will probably be the next president. Actually, of the three, ole' Mitt is the only one of the triumvirate with photogenic qualities, which makes him the most likely to be crowned emperor come Nov. 2008. Hey, he's an empty suit, but would actually be an improvement from Chimpy. Now that's a frightening thought, indeed!
