Dumber Than Dubya - Who'da Thunk It Possible!

Newbie American statesman Mitt the Twit Romney certainly told the Brits a thing or two on how to run the Olympics. He also got the same response as those damnyankees (down here it's one word) who come to Florida and spout off with, "This is how we do it up north."

Neither our used-to-be friends in Britain nor residents of our once fair state give a damn how he did it back home. In response to the Twit, David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, said that it was probably a lot easier to plan an Olympic event in the middle of East Bum-f**k than it is in one of the major world metropolitan cities.

Of course, the citizens of East Bum-f**k, took umbrage with being referred to as the middle of nowhere, which is really the term used by Cameron. It should be noted that the fine folks in Utah call the "middle of nowhere" Salt Lake City.

Having an inquiring mind, I was curious to explore the travel options from Tampa to either London or Salt Lake City and back. I accessed the super highway of information and discovered it's just a tad easier to get to London from Tampa than it is to get to Salt Lake City.

The travel time and cost are about the same, but London is a direct flight. There are no direct flights to the middle of nowhere. So there!

Getting back to Ambassador Twit and his trip to the United Kingdom, in addition to questioning London's Olympic preparedness, he forgot the name of the leader of the Labour Party, and said it would be terrible if the United States were to become like Europe. What with a universal health care plan and all.

In just two days, Mitt Romney has put a real dent in an alliance that took two world wars and forty years of the Cold War to build, and this is the sod that the Republicans want to put in the White House. Holy crap, this guy is dumber than Dubya, and that takes some doing.

Unfortunately, he isn't through yet. Poland is impatiently awaiting his arrival. It has been reported that Israel was actually looking forward to Ambassador Twit's visit. I can't imagine why, but there is no accounting for some folks. The reason for the Twit visit to Poland is still somewhat obscure, though it has been suggested that it has to do with pandering for the Jewish vote in this country.

We shall see what we shall see.


  1. Jon, I'm reminded of that wonderful old adage attributed to Alexander Pope: "Better to keep one's mouth shut, and be thought a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt." Mitt's vocal dribblings while in London leave the rest of us clutching our pearls in horror and scrambling for the Immodium AD. In the words of an old Cold War cartoon from the daily newspaper, "It is to laugh." Have a nice day.

  2. Hi Bill,

    Great comment!

    After morning coffee and the paper, I now understand Israel's love of Romney. He is all for a unilateral strike against Iran by Israel. That would also give the U.S. reason to jump into another unfunded war. I write while clutching my pearls in horror.

    It is always a pleasure to hear from you.
