If Mitt Romney's flip-flopping on the issues doesn't convince voters he's a spineless, ass-kissing fraud, then this quote yesterday from Mr. Integrity should. Here he's trying to convince the gun-obsessed fringes of the far right he's (almost) one of them, after his campaign stated he didn't hunt:
"I'm by no means a big game hunter. I'm more Jed Clampett than Teddy Roosevelt. I've always been a rodent and rabbit hunter, small varmints, if you will..."
Have you ever heard anything so contrived in your life? Since when does Jed Clampett end his sentences with "if you will?" But Mitt's right about one thing: he's surely no Teddy Roosevelt, a pro-union, pro-environment, women's rights advocate whose defection from the Republican party led to a conservative takeover, and is usually listed among the top 5 greatest US presidents in history.
Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Mitt
Whose flip-flopping kept the right wingers in a snit
Each and every day he'd be shootin' off his mouth
Ass-kissin' up to the losers of the south!
(Voters, that is...principles?...none found here...)
Well, don't you know ol' Mitt's a millionaire,
Lent himself two mil, gave his campaign hopes a prayer
His Salt Lake friends want to see him president
But all the pandering hasn't really made a dent
(Polls, that is...still way down...can't buy love...)
