All part of the plan

Another series of days another series of bizarre and patently insincere statements from Mitt Romney.

“I know what it’s like to worry whether you’re gonna get fired,” he told about 600 people in an Opera House here. “There were a couple of times I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip.”

Yeah, uh-huh. Or this:

The super PAC supporting Mitt Romney blanketed Iowa with millions of dollars in negative campaign ads aimed at Newt Gingrich…But don’t ask Romney about ‘em: said he’s never seen the ads — right before he said he’s seen one and described its content.

Or this:

Early in the debate, Rick Santorum pressed Romney on why he hadn’t run for re-election in 2006, when his first term as Governor expired. Romney suggested it was because politics isn’t his calling…This is, as Newt Gingrich pointed out, ridiculous. Romney left the governor’s office for a presidential campaign that hasn’t stopped since.

Even in a profession famous for its insincerity Romney stands as a gigantic fake. Nobody believes a word he says, especially Mitt Romney.

And in a year where the Right-wing and its wide-ranging need for paranoid screeching dominates the GOP process, being the biggest fake in politics actually is an advantage.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
