    That is just so fucking sad and pathetic.

    Isn’t it great?

    Couldn’t have said it better. ::still laughing::

    Where does he go from here?:

    Romney’s new ad is so important to his campaign that they’ve decided to make it the only ad they are putting on air anywhere in the nation, starting Friday. Obviously, though, if you find yourself in the position of needing to go all-in on an ad trying to convince people that you don’t dismiss half the nation, you’re in deep, deep trouble.

    Jed Lewison – DNC responds to Mr. 47%’s new ad Daily Kos 26 Sep 12

    He’s spending his limited funds patching up a toxic electoral perception of himself, he’s trailing in almost every swing state and opening up opportunities in Arizona and elsewhere, the electoral college math is forbidding and the conservative commentariat has declared war on the likely voter model as if it were evolution or global warming.  We are headed into uncharted political territory.

    On Wednesday, in Ohio, Paul Ryan, the zombie-eyed granny-starver from space, in the middle of a rote answer to a woman who was talking about being on welfare, an answer that was just inches from actually being human, said this:

    “Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. Don’t feed fish.”

    Brilliant young thinker, that one.

    So now the 47% are fish … or something.

    … usually pathetically standards. Heh.

    “His indication that developments in the Middle East represent bumps in the road is a very different view than I have,” the Republican candidate told ABC News. “I can’t imagine saying something like the assassination of ambassadors is a bump in the road.”

    This thing’s over, Romney’s campaign has received a deathblow but doesn’t yet know that its days are numbered.  Now we have to take care of the House and Senate.

    It has finally dawned on me that the whole Bain “defining” phase of the campaign not only pre-emptively framed a narrative around Mitt’s business experience but effectively blocks his end game; that he’s a lousy campaigner but shucks he’s a really good guy who can do the job.

    I don’t know if they saw that coming or if it was just good luck but it seems to late for them to fix it now.

    may be huge. I followed the shenanigans of Sproul & Associates in Nevada and Oregon in 2008. When confronted, they did the typical denials, slow walk and a fine after the election and damage done.

    When I first read about the Florida gig, I thought business as usual. Wrongo. Something is different this time for the Republican committees at all levels to drop them like a hot rock. So far, no indication of what was so toxic this time.

    I’m wondering if Michael Isikoff has some damning evidence he has yet to reveal and the Repub PTBs know it. This is one I am keeping an eye on.

  8. …may I suggest an addition to our blog roll?  I nominate Stonekettle Station:

    I’ve mentioned Jim Wright’s blog here before, quoted from it sometimes.  If you haven’t checked him out yet, do yourself a favor.

    By the way, thanks to the whims of Blogger, I’m “Never Ben Better” when I comment there (and at No More Mister Nice Blog as well).
