We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Let's see.....Dukakis tried riding in a tank and ended up looking like Snoopy or maybe Thomas Eagleton wired up getting "jump started" as the late Lee Atwater, H.W.'s campaign manager said.( he was one helluva guitar player..actually cut an CD with BB King, (Red, White and the Blues?)
W tried the carrier landing flight suit thing but they screwed up on the signage. It should have said, "Next we nuke'um".
Bill Clinton had the oleaginous psycho mojo cook'n, and a wife who , in the end "Stood By Her Man". Plus isn't it the tough guys who rape women? I'll have to ask Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Wiley. The Jen Flowers tapes don't count.
So how do we toughen up Mitt....ok we have time...so
we first have him drive the pace car at the remaining NASCAR races, concluding the first lone lap with an awesome burnout....a few clandestine lessons at Richard Petty driving school and a NASCAR truck race or two under the name Mitt "I take no shit" Romney and bingo we get him ready for NASCAR big boy races by seasons end...then he drives in the Daytona 500 next February...he can afford to rent a ride.
That will do it. Especially if he misses the "big one" but also bump drafts Tony Stewart out of the race. Of course he'll be in the Rick Hendrick stable with Jeff Gordon and Ernhardt ,Jr.
That or he bungee jumps from an unsafe bridge, naked with Jenny Jameson.
