Joss Whedon explains why a vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for the Zombie Apocalypse.
GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney has long contended that he’s a good-humored practical jokester who is only misunderstood as stiff and over-programmed.
As a high school student, Romney’s mischievous disposition was frequently on display. Classmates told the Washington Post in a piece published last month that this sometimes led him into unpleasant territory, such as the time he and a group of friends pinned down a screaming boy — who was presumed to be gay — and gave him a “hack job” haircut with a pair of scissors.
In another questionable display of his inner prankster, it now appears that Romney was also reportedly fascinated with police uniforms, which he sometimes put on to carry out elaborate practical jokes.
According to a report from National Memo, Romney was open about this practice, telling fellow students at Stanford University, where he studied for two years, that he “sometimes disguised himself as a police officer.”
According to classmate Robin Madden, Romney once brought a group of classmates up to his dorm room where he showed them his Michigan State Trooper’s uniform.
From the National Memo report:
Said Madden in a recent interview, “He told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father,” George Romney, then the Governor of Michigan, whose security detail was staffed by uniformed troopers. “He told us that he was using it to pull over drivers on the road. He also had a red flashing light that he would attach to the top of his white Rambler.”
In Madden’s recollection, confirmed by his wife Susan, who also attended Stanford during those years, “we thought it was all pretty weird. We all thought, ‘Wow, that’s pretty creepy.’ And after that, we didn’t have much interaction with him,” although both Madden and Romney were prep school boys living in the same dorm, called Rinconada.

Mormon women remember Romney’s advice when he was a church leader, and there wasn’t much ‘moderate’ about it.
A long read, but worth every second. Everyone in America needs to know the truth about this amoral man.
The Hillary Meme strikes again!

Heyyy wealthy ladies!
Barack Obama won last night’s debate. Or to be more precise, Mitt Romney lost it. That’s obviously not the conventional view of the commentators or pollsters, who gave the GOP candidate a clear win. But that doesn’t matter. He still lost. There are three reasons why Romney experienced a soft implosion of his already tenuous […]
