Take my wives, please.... but seriously folks...

Non-self aware Mormon cyborg Mitt Romney was in Chicago on Monday and campaign advisers got him to say “a thing that someone says to cause amusement or laughter, esp. a story with a funny punchline”.

This “amusement thing ” or “joke” was about how kids these days are totally “whack” if they vote for Democrats  instead of “cool hepcats” like himself and other late-middle-aged white men who can still quote lines verbatim  from Caddyshack because that is a very funny talking movie. Following the attempt at “humor,”  Mitt added, “hey, I’m just kidding ” and made that nervous artificial-sounding barking noise that passes for “expressing his mirth”:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says he can’t understand why so many young people vote Democratic.

During a speech on economic freedom at the University of Chicago on Monday, the candidate was asked to address crippling student loans and the high unemployment rate for younger Americans.

“I joke and I don’t mean to be flip with this because I actually see truth in it,” Romney explained. “I don’t see how a young American can vote for a Democrat.”

“I apologize for being so offensive in saying that, but I catch your attention,” he continued. “But I mean that in the humor there’s some truth there. And I say that for this reason: That party is focused on providing more and more benefits to my generation and amounting trillion-dollar annual deficits my generation will never pay for.”

Mitt Romney should really apologize to America for modeling himself after shock comedians like Louis CK and Bill Maher and using offensive words and analogies  meant to shock Americans out of their complacency even if it is the funny, but brutal truth. Maybe Mitt can make this up to youngsters by joining them in one of their favorite past-times such as playing , as he calls it, “beer table tennis” and then adding, “But I can’t get wasted, for pete’s sake, I’m running for president  -Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha (click whirrrrr boink)”.
