Culture club

Lately Mitt Romney and his gang of recycled Bush Advisers (the only kind of recycling they believe in) have been working hard at ethnography.

First they went on about an “Anglo-Saxon” heritage, now Mitt has moved on to taking a dig at the Palestinians in Israel and why they are “the poors”:

“Culture makes all the difference,” Mr. Romney said. “And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things.”

Oh never mind they are rather “occupied” Palestinian territories, or that Netanyahu himself admits they have been economically brutalized, no it is their “culture” that is the Palestinian’s problem.

There was also something else we learned and that is John McCain studied this statement with all the care he exercised in looking at 23-years of Mitt’s tax returns.

“I am sure that Gov. Romney was not talking about difference in cultures, or difference in anybody superior or inferior”

Um, yeah.

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 .
