Here we have Presidential candidate and former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney, showing how “down” he is with his “homeys”; indeed, how “jiggy” he is getting, whilst “rapping” with his “dogs” in the “hood.” Yep, it’s a very special Martin Luther King Day episode of Mittens Goes To Washington.
You don’t need to watch the whole thing. Just click play, and come on back as soon as you hear him say something stupid. Trust me, it’s worth it.
I don’t think this is racist, really, although if others disagree I’m not going to fight them too hard. Me, I just think it’s proof that Mitt Romney, former Governor of my Commonwealth of Whatevuh, is perhaps the most uncool human being on the planet. Should that disqualify him from being our Commander-in-Chief? No. There are many, many other things that do that.
But let’s go back to this video for a second. Hit play again, and advance to… oh… 2:25 or so. Come on back when you hear him really embarrass himself.
Yes, Mitt Romney just said “bling bling.”
In the words of Air America’s Rachel Maddow (on whose radio show I learned of this video): “Ohhhhh, Mittens. I don’t think you are going to be the President.”
