Third Base Politics


Stay classy, Mitt.

I’ve never been a big fan of Mitt Romney. Call me crazy, but it’s hard for me to support flip-flopping opportunists. On top of it, the guy had every advantage in the world in 2008 – the most money, the best strategists money could buy, weak primary opponents – and he still found a way to not connect with the voters.

And now, on top of it all, he takes the opportunity to show what a d-bag he really is.

In the latest instance of a high-profile GOP member taking a passing swipe at the party’s 2008 vice-presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Governor and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney jokingly dismissed Sarah Palin’s inclusion on Time’s list of influential people in an interview broadcast Sunday.

He asked, was “the issue on the most beautiful people or the most influential people?”

Romney, appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” was replying to a question from moderator John King on whether Time’s inclusion of Palin and talk show host Rush Limbaugh on their list of “The World’s Most Influential People” was good or bad for the Republican Party.

Romney, who has not ruled out another White House bid, said he wanted more influential Republicans on the list before adding pointedly: “I think there are a lot more influential Republicans than that would suggest.”

“But was that the issue on the most beautiful people or the most influential people?” he continued. “I’m not sure. If it’s the most beautiful, I understand. We’re not real cute.”

Asked about Romney’s comment, Palin didn’t respond to the reference to her appearance.

“I think there are 100 influential Republicans alone who have tremendous ideas and I hope that we can all work together to accomplish what we believe is best for America,” Palin said through a spokeswoman.

That, my friends, is the wrong and right way to answer that question.

Mitt, you insufferable bag of wind, shut up and quit trying to damage the Party.

Sarah, you have my number. Call me. 😉
