Mitt Romney makes a serious misstep in Ohio. When the Obama's closing argument is, "Who can you trust?" the last thing you want to do is tell a big, fat lie.
Apparently, you can be too gay for a Romney rally, but not too racist. It's all about the priorities.
Speaking of racists; Romney surrogate John Sununu went all racist over Colin Powell's Obama endorsement -- and then he realized it was bad politics.
And more hate. Here's an actual Mitt Romney quote: "Some gays are actually having children born to them. It's not right on paper. It's not right in fact. Every child has a right to a mother and father."
Democratic Senate majority leader Harry Reid visited the ER today after a traffic accident. He seems to be OK, though, and was treated for "minor rib injuries." Photos of the vehicle he was in make it look like he was whacked pretty good. Reid's office has released a statement.
Paul Ryan is spending big money in his congressional reelection campaign. The reason is pretty simple, Paulie wants to be veepee and Wisconsin is a swing state. If you watch a Ryan ad, you have to pay close attention to notice that it is a Ryan ad and not a Romney ad featuring Ryan. This probably violates some sort of law, but there'd be no way to prove that his intent was to promote Romney. Still, it's another example of not defending against the Obama "trust" argument very well.
Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi gets sent up the river for four years on tax fraud.
Finally, they're cool with invading random countries and killing and torturing people, but someone compare voting for the first time and losing your virginity and conservatives lose their shit. These are seriously emotionally unbalanced people.
