The Revenge of Seamus

Gail Collins with a hilarious and spot-on skewering of Mitt -- and a prescient warning about what the Democratic nominee can expect from the Republican attack machine.  Man, I am so sick of having my patriotism questioned because I changed my mind (I initially supported the war) and have come to the obvious conclusion that the war has been a total freakin' disaster for the United States:

POP QUIZ: What reason did Mitt Romney give for dropping out of the presidential race?

A) I’m down to my last $40 million.

B) I just discovered Tagg let another illegal immigrant mow the lawn.

C) I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.

Yes! Continuing his near-perfect record of referring to political opponents as sinister forces bent on undermining the nation, Romney said he was dropping out so the Republicans wouldn’t lose the race to the Democratic terror-surrenderers.

Can you see the next nine months stretching out before you, people? Envision the pages on the calendar flipping. Hear the incessant drone of terrorsurrenderterrorsurrenderterrorsurrender? Welcome to McCain vs. Yet-to-Be-Named-White-Flag-Waver.

The Revenge of Seamus

Oh, Mitt, Mitt, Mitt.

Losing Mitt Romney from the presidential race is not just a matter of another Republican biting the dust. It’s all those dozens and dozens of future incarnations that we may never have a chance to meet. I was hoping that someday we’d get a Libertarian Mitt, or maybe a cowboy.

Worst of all, I’m going to have to get through the rest of the year without ever again referring to the fact that Romney once drove to Canada with the family dog, Seamus, strapped to the roof of the car.
