While President Uppity McBlahman was drone-raping Lady Liberty and ordering a hit on Nancy Reagan, first runner-up Mitt Romney was kicking back at his La Jolla beach temple, soaking up the rays and trying to ignore the sound of wailing coming from Ann’s dancing horse dojo:
It’s chilly on the Capitol steps today, but that’s no problem for Mitt Romney.
The former Republican presidential contender is spending Inauguration Day at his home in La Jolla, Calif., where it’s sunny with a forecasted high of 73 degrees.
An aide told NBC News that the former Massachusetts governor and his wife have “no big plans.”
Asked if the governor was likely to watch the inaugural ceremonies today, the aide said, “Doubtful.”
Also … a reminder to all of the people who gave Mitt hundreds of millions of dollars to waste over two presidential election cycles:
Romney’s son Tagg told The Boston Globe in December that his father was never really all that into winning the nation’s highest office anyway.
“He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life,” Tagg told the newspaper. “He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them, but he has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention.”
Now Romney just spends his days skipping Romney/Ryan 2012 buttons on the water between waves and yelling at the stoners to get the H-E-double-hockey-sticks off of his beach.
