Settling on boring over crazy?

The story last night was supposed to be Romney’s SuperPac, “Restore our Future” allowing Mitt to put on a ribbed-jacket and rhythmically pound the supine Rick Santorum into a frothy lather, the only thing left would be a brown stain and the wet spot where Santorum is made to meekly lay exhausted and spent, covered in sweat.

So, how’s that breakfast stayin’ down?

But not so fast apparently.  Romney is still almost surely the nominee, I just pray he doesn’t start singing. You can truly feel the GOP’s excitement. It is palpable. … Nope sorry, I was sitting on a set of grilling tongs.

It wasn’t all bad for the Grand Old Party, at least one of its main legislative priorities of the last few years came to glorious fruition:

Paul Carroll, an 86-year-old World War II veteran who has lived in the same Ohio town for four decades, was denied a chance to vote in the state’s primary contests today after a poll worker denied his form of identification, a recently-acquired photo ID from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The poll worker rejected the ID because it did not contain an address, as required by Ohio law…

“I went to war for this country, but now I can’t vote in this country.”

Congratulations, jackasses. What a win for Democracy. Truly that is Mitt Romney’s America.

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 .
