Coffins are for people, my friends.
“I demand an apology! I didn’t make $100m out of closing that plant — my partners and I did. This is therefore a gross distortion of my record, not to mention unAmerican, anti-capitalist, not fair and … something else. I do not wish to hear of this matter again, kindly remove it from the airwaves.” — Mitty
I’m getting worried, folks, John Sununu is out there praising Mitt Romney.
And if there’s ONE motherfucker out there who can whip up the excitement in the kids and working class stiffs, it’s that guy.
We doomed, I tells ya, DOOMED! John Fucking Sununu. Tap out now, Obama…
Sadly, it ain’t just Mittens who’s made a mint by shutting down factories and shipping the jobs elsewhere. But I will be very happy if highlighting this stuff not only helps Obama win but also makes Joe Sixpack finally start to question the values inherent in the system as promulgated under the GOP.
Well, sure, coffins are easy to build.
You ever try to build a car elevator?
Reagan-the Teflon president
Mitt(what the fuck kind of name IS that)-the sticky thread candidate.
You know what else are easy to build?
Gravity powered slicing devices.
That’s gonna leave a mark. Ouch.
Mitt’s going to end up the most hated man in this country.
He might just be, but I doubt the kind of hate that someone would throw a shoe at him.
And after watching this ad, Mitt, like Atlas, shrugs.
Shorter Mitt response: go volunteer at the Atlas Shrugged II T-shirt hand-out for FreedumbWerkz in Dallas, you lazy slacker. Make yourself useful, insteada whining about not working.
Bernard Finel, the new front-pager over at Balloon-Juice, has a really good post that addresses rarely asked questions about how the financial Masters of the Universe perceive the business world. If you’re thinking ‘like vampires in a room filled with necklace models,’ you ain’t far off.
It’s definitely worth a full read, but the gist of Finel’s post is that the Wall St. MOTUs define terms like “mismanaged”, “underperforming”, and “excessively compensated” in ways that you or I wouldn’t, and with very destructive consequences. Much of the basics aren’t news, but it’s a good wider perspective of a sector that is more destructive than Godzilla, but lacking his charm.
Bien sûr. Je vais apprendre à tricoter.

I aways kind of wondered what it was Mme LeFarge was MAKING, y’know?
Doesn’t matter, of course, but it’s one of those idle thoughts…..
