I cannot be reasonable about Willard ‘Mitt’ Romney. I do not understand why my fellow Massholes voted for him in the first place, and I can’t understand how his performance as governor didn’t disqualify him for any future public office. Every time Willard pops up in public, it’s bad for my blood pressure.
But just when I thought I’d reached Peak Romney Outrage, Wonkette linked to the following “essay contest”:
And when you get to the website (with its kitschy ‘improvement’, aka half-arsed plagiarism, of Obama’s ‘Yes We Can’ logo)… you are told that you need to make at least a $50 “donation” to enter the contest.
So, let me get this straight: Rather than pay a market research firm to pick his next campaign’s buzzwords, Willard wants his FreeStrongMurka “supporters” to pay *him* for the privilege of writing 250-word sound bites across the blank slate of Willard’s personality?
