Or as the kids call it these days, the Republican party.
The Romney camp is also running a new radio ad in Florida that ties Obama to Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. The pettiness and irrelevance of attacks like these risk generating more media questions about whether Romney has run out of arguments and believes he’s losing the race.
Meanwhile, the Ohio press continues to pound Romney for the centerpiece of this Kamikaze strategy: His false claims about the auto-bailout and Jeep supposedly moving American jobs to China. Dems are circulating this scorching editorial in the Youngstown Vindicator that hits Romney’s Jeep lie as an “insult to Ohians” and bluntly states that Romney is “no friend of the auto industry, on which Ohio relies for one of every eight jobs.” Another hard-hitting editorial in the Toledo Blade blasts Romney for an “exercise in deception about auto-industry issues that is remarkable even by the standards of his campaign.”
I have to admire the sheer vindictive-bastard-ness of it. He’s gonna burn the whole goddamn thing down, just because fuck it. Because his GOP masters — those who’ve tried without fail to stop him chewing on shoe leather every time he opens his cakehole — have never liked him, and he’s never liked them, and they were never behind him, not really, and it showed, so he’s gonna make them pay. He’s gonna ruin this party. He’s gonna crash the campaign bus, douse the place with gasoline, and salt the scorched earth. And then he’s gonna nuke the site from orbit just to be sure.
And if it leaves the GOP crippled and toxic, as irrelevant as a pair of kid gloves at a monster truck show, what does he care? He’s fuckin’ done. It’s over. His political career is dead. In the past he’s had to be nice because he’s going to run again, but this time he’s beholden to nothing and no one. The best he can hope for out of the party in the future is an ambassadorship someplace warm, but he has a squillion dollars and can buy himself an island, so who gives a fuck?
Run ads comparing Obama to Che. Make shit up every time he opens his mouth. Say one thing for months on the trail and another in the debate. Declare disaster relief immoral and then hold a disaster relief event that doesn’t one bit relieve disasters. Do it all, motherfucker, this place about to blow. If the party elders had any brains at all, they’d have looked at his nasty grin and his dead little eyes months ago and realized that when it’s all over the stories he puts out are going to make McCain-Palin look like a lovefest so be careful. He owes the party exactly jack shit, and he doesn’t need them anymore.
And we’ve all seen what Mitt Romney does to people he doesn’t need.
