To Donald Trump: I will donate one million dollars to the charity of your choice if I may be allowed to pull whatever that thing on your head is to determine whether or not it is real hair and that you are not an alien from outer space. You have until midnight of November 2 to accept my challenge.
To Mitt Romney: You smile and tell us of great things you will do for this country, and I can’t help thinking I wouldn’t buy a used car from you. I must admit, some of what you say sounds great…BUT, I don’t believe you. Just like that line from an old song, “Your story’s touching, but it sounds like a lie.” Mitt, you tell us you know how to create jobs and you know how to fix the economy, but you’ve yet to outline how you intend to accomplish these things you supposedly know. With so much hot air, I’m surprised your feet stay on the ground. Does your magic mormon (deliberately not capitalized) underwear have pockets for lead weights?

In a recent appearance on The View, Ann Romney, who is apparently as much a Mittwit as her husband, claimed that Mitt and their sons having gone on Mormon missions to
shove their religion down our throats proselytize about the Church of Latter Day Saints is the same as serving in the military. That’s like saying little girls in girl scout uniforms selling cookies door to door is the same as serving in the military.
When pressed by Whoopi Goldberg on how Romney would explain why neither he nor any of his five sons served, Ann explained that the six men found “different ways of serving” by going on their Mormon religious missions.
“So, you know, we find different ways of serving,” she said. “And my husband and my five boys did serve missions, [but they] did not serve in the military.”
The substitution, she went on to explain, makes sense because the two share essential, character-building and altruistic values. Read more at salon.com
Really! I had no idea those bicycle riding white shirt and tie wearing young men ringing doorbells and annoying people were putting themselves in harm’s way. I’d like to see the statistics on how many Mormon missionaries come home in body bags, missing limbs, suffer from PTSD, or many of the other multitude of maladies endured by our troops that have been to war. How many Mormon parents have received the unthinkable news that their child won’t be coming home from their missions?
We should all be offended at Ms. Romney’s ignorance and insensitivity towards our troops and their loved ones. How dare she make such a comparison!
If Romney wins the White House will he be proselytizing and or sending out missionaries to spread the word? Will this constitute his foreign policy? Could this be why he wants to increase the budget for the military?

I watched Mitt Romney give a speech at a rally and he spoke about the four dead in Bengazi. His facial expressions were bizarre and inappropriate. He said that the ambassador was “wonderful,” then paused, looking for another, better word. He couldn’t think of one, so he said it again, vacuously, “wonderful.” Then, he smiled in a strange, even more inappropriate way, making a remark about a moment of silence that he didn’t invoke.
Then, there’s the way he keeps revising the truth, changing the narrative in distorted, dishonest way.
The first symptom– inappropriate affect– reminded me of when I worked as part of an emergency psychiatry team. Inappropriate affect was a common symptom of mental illness– psychosis that would warrant involuntary psychiatric hospitalization.
That got me thinking. Another symptom was “confabulation” delusional ways of seeing. Freedictionary.com defines confabulation as:
“to fill in gaps in one’s memory with fabrications that one believes to be facts.”
Now, I don’t think Romney needs to be hospitalized involuntarily, but these symptoms do add to the concern I have when I think about Mitt Romney as president.
BTW, there IS another psychiatric category where you see inappropriate affect of a different sort– sociopath, also called psychopath.

Out of the mouths of the stupid. From Rep. Todd Akin:
Republican Senate Nominee: Victims Of ‘Legitimate Rape’ Don’t Get Pregnant
Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri who is running against Sen. Claire McCaskill, justified his opposition to abortion rights even in case of rape with a claim that victims of “legitimate rape” have unnamed biological defenses that prevent pregnancy.
“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in an interview posted Sunday. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” (read more)
GOP Senate Candidate Suggests The Voting Rights Act Of 1965 Should Be Overturned
By Judd Legum on Aug 17, 2012 at 9:06 pm
Rep. Todd Akin, the GOP’s candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri, suggested in an interview that it was time to “look at or overturn” the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Asked directly if seminal federal civil rights legislation that prohibits discriminatory voting proceedures needed to be modified or scrapped, Akin said that states — not the federal government — should set voting rules. According to Akin, elections “have historically always been a state thing” and that’s a “good principle.” (read more)
