He has been pure comedy gold, hasn't he?

That and terribly embarrassing as well...

Joshua Keating of Foreign Policy actually went to the trouble of reading Mitt's No Apology and found this lovely quote.

"England [sic] is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn't make things that people in the rest of the world want to buy. And if it hadn't been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler's ambitions. Yet only two lifetimes ago, Britain ruled the largest and wealthiest empire in the history of humankind. Britain controlled a quarter of the earth's land and a quarter of the earth's population."

And yet, the right wing still thinks they've got a winner.

Travel is so broadening--wouldn't you agree?

Maybe he'll go to Liverpool and say, "I'm from the land where John Lennon was shot."

People are so unkind. He's clearly making an effort to be rude. Why can't these anglos see that?

[thread flashback] You're right, how did it happen? -- the media has exploded in the use of 'surrogate'. It's everywhere, all at once, it's disturbing.

And Romney, also.

Thanks for the call out on the Wilton Diptych. Was not aware of it before. Wow. Incredible. I love paintings before Renaissance perspective. And am enough of a nerd to know what it takes to make those pigments. And the wallpaper!!! And the wings!! And the hands!!! Beauty. Keep up the good work.
