Rich assholes usually win the GOP nomination.
When’s the last time one didn’t, really?
But they are supposed to be rich assholes, not pose as regular folks. These rich assholes are supposed to know how many houses they own (thanks, Cindy McCain, for Ace’s most memorable moment of 2008) and they are supposed to be briefed on what a grocery scanner is.
But rich assholes look idiotic trying to make “jokes” about unemployment. Romney has already criticized Barack Obama for calling unemployed Americans “bumps in the road” (he didn’t) so Mitt’s faux pas with unemployed Floridians rings really false.
Here’s a hint, Mitt: no one believes you’re unemployed. We all know you’re a rich asshole who doesn’t NEED a job to support your family. And that specific job you said you have your eye on isn’t going to be yours as long as your condescending sense of “humor” keeps peeking through that facade.
Jane Hamsher’s right: Romney’s not “the guy who looks like he fired your dad.” Romney IS the guy who fired your dad.
