Romney — weirdness you can count on
Published: October 24, 2012
More dozens: The Rev. Al Sharpton, who hosts a show on MSNBC, has a promo wherein he flips the dozens on their ear. In a spot about the coming election he talks about the bad effect Romney47's policies would have on elderly citizens and says, "It's not about Obama; it's about your mama." Pretty slick.
I like Candy: I have long been a fan of Candy Crowley, the CNN anchor who moderated the second debate. She is my favorite CNN personality. So I loved it when she was tough on the candidates during the debates. Especially when she wouldn't let Romney47 bully her into letting him break the rules he had agreed to before the debate. He seems to be used to getting his own way and doesn't mind doing whatever it takes to achieve his ends. She also showed moxie when she truthed him about when President Obama first called the Libyan embassy attack an "act of terror." Romney47 seemed perplexed when she corrected him when he said it took Obama two weeks to call the attack terror. Obama did it the day after the attack. Romney47 is not used to someone calling him on his fibs. Way to go, Candy. In the aftermath of Wisconsin news anchor Jennifer Livingston being attacked because of her weight, Crowley showed that thick women are more than capable of taking care of business.
