NAACP Boos Mitt Romney Cuz Why Wouldn’t They (VIDEO)

(Read the full article here: NAACP Boos Mitt Romney Cuz Why Wouldn’t They (VIDEO))

“I believe,” Romney started strongly, “that if you understood who I truly am in my heart, and if it were possible to fully communicate what I believe is in the real, enduring best interest of African-American families, you would vote for me for president.”

He put his hands on the pew on smiled. Nobody applauded, but nobody booed. Until Romney vowed to repeal Obama’s health care reforms, the crowd at Wednesday’s NAACP conference maintained a comfortable silence interspersed by light clapping. Then they booed, leaving Romney to grin awkwardly while he waited for the crowd’s vocal disapproval to end….Read more

(Read the full article here: It’s About Time Somebody Made A Movie Of A Lot Of Hipsters Getting Brutally Murdered)

 

What happens when a deranged young man living in a hipster-infested LA neighborhood is pushed too far?” asks the tagline of Hipster Holocaust: A Film, which unfortunately is not yet a film, but merely a preview intended to raise Kickstarter funds (mission accomplished).

Frankly, a hipster serial killer movie was so obvious it’s a) amazing that it hasn’t been made already, and b) impressive that director John D.A. did as good a job as he did, as he could have easily coasted on concept alone… Read More

Howard Dean’s Right: Wisconsin Was A Win For the Dems

When I first read the headline “Howard Dean: We Look At Wisconsin As A Win,” I was all set to write a “Howard Dean Lives In A Candy House On Lollipop Lane” post. After all, nothing has been more painful than watching Dems try to spin Wisconsin. It wasn’t so much the loss—the recall was always a longshot—as the perception (or was it a reality?) that the national Democratic party left Wisconson out to dry, and potentially undermined their own populist narrative while doing so… Read More

Illinois Rep Mad As Hell, Not Gonna Take It Anymore

Rest easy, fellow Illoiniansians, for Representative Mike Bost is here to stand up for you and the fleeting Democracy you deserve. After the Speaker of the Illinois House called a bill on teachers’ pensions for debate just hours after it had passed out of committee, and before Bost and others had a chance to read it—dick move, to be sure—Bost went on to reenact the climactic speech from every political / courtroom drama ever, all at once: Watch the video at PoliticOlogy

New DNC Ad Bashes Romney’s Massachusetts Tenure

Less than 12 hours after Romney clinched the GOP nomination, the DNC is out with “Little to Like,” a cutesy, if effective, ad mocking Mitt Romney on the Facebook page of the world. The ad links his savage success at Bain Capital to his general incompetence as governor of Massachusetts, attempting to corrupt both sides of Romney’s argument that his private secotr success makes him uniquely qualified for public office.

The conceit is clever—a stroll through Mitt Romney’s Facebook page if it were set up not by him but reality. There’s his GOP primary opponents talking about his record as 47th in job creation in MA, and there’s a newscaster talking about his hidden wealth. When we come to a headline about his tax policies, clicking the like button shows “Millionaires like this.” And finally, we get a tour through Romney’s most embarrassing statements—I like to the fire people, corporations are people, and all your favorite hits—as if they were statuses Romney posted drunk outside the bar and now can’t delete… Read more.

Romney’s First Ad of the General Election, Heavy on Sunshine, Light on Specifics

 

Mitt Romney has released the first ad of his general election campaign. It’s a quick, sunny spot that stays “positive,” at least according to the low standards of political advertising, but does little to define him as a potential president:

For those who read this blog regularly and are thinking, “But PoliticOlogy, you hate Mitt Romney and will never like one of his ads”—not true! I’m more than willing to let Romney make a case for his presidency. If he’s got ideas on how to improve the economy, I welcome his arguments in favor of them…. Read More.
