Revenge of the Nerd

One thing Mitt Romney has never been accused of is being hip. He is the quintessential nerd – a geek’s geek, an überwonk. He doesn’t drink or smoke or chase women. He’s a square. He’s boring. All he needs is a pocket-protector and a slide rule (and you can bet he had both when he was younger).

And he is just what this country needs right now.

We do not need a hip, cool, charismatic leader. We don’t need an intellectual. We need competence. We need a nerd.

We need Mitt Romney.

    Contrary to what some people would like us to believe, Mitt Romney is not an ideologue. He is a goo-goo moderate.

    So OT but this is driving me nits – who is the actress with the straight dark hair in this cascade ad? ->

    edit – never mind – figured it out. the cia lady in Burn Notice

  3. amen brother—–you’ve said it eloquently and simply

  4. angienc says:

    Myiq– I notice you go out of your way to pick the most unflattering pictures of Mitt. Is this something we need to talk about?
    Because nerd or no, this guy has the looks & alpha maleness that guarantee he never had to *chase* women.

    • myiq2xu says:

      We can discuss my beta male feelings of inadequacy after the election.

    • glad you said that angienc—I think he’s really handsome. And in person he looks like a movie star—-and so does Ann.

    • yttik says:

      LOL, yeah! I think once the Obamamedia fades into a distant memory, people are going to be surprised by Romney.

      It took me a while to warm up to him too, but once I got past the media blockade, I can see that he’s got looks and charisma, and even more important, integrity and character to go with it.

      • angienc says:

        That’s why the first debate was such a game changer– they guy the MSM has been selling as smart, good looking & successful finally stood right next to someone who was smart, good looking & successful who was challenging him instead of bolstering him.

        It was just like that joint Clinton/Obama press conference in December 2010 where everyone — on the left *and* right — was happy to see Clinton just take over like a real president after Obama left to go to some Christmas party –only *this* time Romney was standing in opposition to Obama, not helping him, so the difference was even more stark. By the time Romney got to his closing list of all Obama’s failures over the last 4 years & said “It doesn’t have to be this way” everyone knew it was true.

      • Funny, I don’t find him repulsive at all and can see where people think he is good looking- but for me- meh.
        But I wouldn’t care if he was butt ugly- he has experience and a brain.

        • gxm17 says:

          Me too. Romney’s whitebread handsome which ain’t my thing. But I see why others find him attractive. OTOH, I never understood why people find the big Zero good looking. IMO, he’s neither attractive or hunky. (And I love tall, dark and handsome.)

          Mitt’s appeal is more than skin deep. Obama is all veneer (and IMO very unexceptional veneer).

    We do not need a hip, cool, charismatic leader. We don’t need an intellectual.

    Obama isn’t any of those things IMO either.

  6. DandyTiger says:

    Nerds/Geeks rule. Suck on that Obots.

  7. Maybe one of the mods will find this worthy. I have no clue how to embed pics- but laughed so hard I scared the cats when I saw this

    Test message. I’m learning how to use my new smart phone. The old dumb one jumped in the washing machine.

    • leslie says:

      I lost a phone like that,too. I think it was depressed and threw itself into the bucket of water next to the flowers I was planting.

      • lorac says:

        Same thing with me. Got the phone all wet, and everyone (including phone salesman) was saying I’d have to buy a new one. But I took it apart (took off back, took out battery and SIM card), and in a few days it worked just fine again!

    • blowme0bama says:

      Layed one on a windowsill and hadn’t properly let go of it when it fell into a dog’s waterbowl a foot and a half away. Couldn’t have thrown it in there if I’d tried.

      It took about a month but it finally dried out.

  9. yttik says:

    ROFL! That picture PMM posted above is funny!

    Speaking of nerds, today I went around handing out stamps to people who haven’t mailed their ballot yet. You would not believe how many people have their ballot done, still sitting on the table, because they can’t find a stamp.

    This is a dark blue, very Dem area and every person was voting Romney. Our state will still likely go Obama, but I did not encounter a single Obama voter today. Not one.

  10. DM says:

    I’m not sure Mitt qualifies as a nerd.

  11. gxm17 says:

    Lemme tell ya, I am so fucking ready for a nerd president. Dear heavens, please put an adult in charge!

    Okay, I have to get something off my chest. I’ve never been a big MSNBC fan, and I haven’t watched them at all since 2008. Until last night. Had about 10 minutes to kill before Greta came on, and tripped over to Rachel Maddow, where I was completely taken aback by her frothing display of Romney hate disquised as journalism. It was so over the top, at first I thought it was parody. And the quality level, showing snippets of news articles from who knows who–looked like someone’s high school debate project. Then later, they have Obama’s new theme, “lean forward” popping up in the corner. They might as well have said, “we work for Obama.” It was really gross. I’ve been feeling a bit guilty watching Fox as my main news, but after that, Fox was a relief.

    • DM says:

      The Mitt campaign has more positive messages. The internals for the Obama campaign must suck. I think many in the Obama campaign thought that Sandy was going to save their messiah, but apparently the polls must continue to show a Mitt surge. It’s the normal in campaigns like these, when the incumbent is stuck at 47%.

      • angienc says:

        IMO, the “normal” of a sitting POTUS calling his challenger a “bullshiter” in an interview & the media acting like PRAVDA is a new low that has been ushered in by the SCoaMF & the punks who are running his campaign (birds of a feather).

        • Erica says:

          It really is something. I don’t really think of myself as an easily shocked person, but the sinking level of maturity and decorum that Obama personifies is really shocking to me almost every day. You’d think I’d get used to it, but it’s so low, and so against everything I was taught about what it means to participate in civil society. And he’s the president!! On that basis alone, he has to go.

      • when the incumbent is stuck at 47%.

        Isn’t it ironic that we keep seeing this number pop up? Romney is apparently right about that.

    • Erica—you’re a brave soul!!! The best show on MSNBC will be next Tuesday night when Romney beats Obama. Now THAT will be a shopw worth watching……..hehehehe

    not sure why it is but everytime I hear the words Romney and cool….Devo pops into my head….

  16. DM says:

    There are so many weird polls out there. I think a few fly by night pollsters opened their door to business recently. I’ve never seen those pollsters before.

  17. angienc says:

    Ha, ha! On Hannity (yes, I know) Clint Eastwood described Obama’s over-the-top “I’m offended!” defensiveness re: Benghazi at the 2nd debate as him “having a tizzy.”

    He went on to say that reaction raises questions because someone who is confident in their position reacts in a much calmer way.

    Clint nails it again.

    I am disappointed in Ms. Cupp:

  19. OT: FFS, I now officially hate Firefox. Not only have they not fixed their stupid flash problem, they are now putting ads everywhere. And I effing HATE explorer AND chrome. I want my frigging favorites bar, but I want it with explorer. Their stupid Pin It feature to my taskbar is annoying as shit. And Chrome just sucks. Has twice as many ads as Firefox. Plus, I refuse to reward the largest child porn distributor in the world. Fuck Google, Fuck MicroSoft, and now FUCK Firefox! What’s a girl to do? Nothing. Brogrammers and their stupid fucking porn habits. How about a product that works, assholes? I’ll show you my tits for it, FFS.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Safari on my Mac works great. 🙂

    • we could take rant lessons from you Lola!! In all seriousness you have my undying admiration for showing us all how to do a colorful rant…..

    • DandyTiger says:

      If you’re stuck on windows though, try opera. Don’t know if it’s better, but maybe worth a shot.

    • DM says:

      Have you tried using the add-on Flashblock? it stops Flash until you want to watch it. That takes away most of the annoying Flash ads that demands so much from the system.

      That’s what I hate, Flash.

    • DM says:

      Here is the link for the Firefox Flashblock add-on

    • DM says:

      Lola, the browser Firefox is not responsible for the ads on any webpage. Those ads are put there by the owner of the website. By blocking Flash, you will get rid of most annoying ads, but sometimes website work around the Flashblock add-on. The browser pop up window block seems to become ineffective too because of cookies from websites visited. For that reason, I remove almost everyday all cookies from the browser. Just a few ideas about how to handle the ads.

      • I didn’t have any ads whatsoever on TCH and my own blog until I unistalled FF and reinstalled it to deal with the flash problem, which didn’t fix it, ftr. (And FF acknowledges it’s their problem.) Now see them on TCH, my own blog, and a ton of websites I visit daily. Little words are linked with ads everywhere. If it’s not Firefox, what could it be? That’s the only thing that’s changed…

        I’m definitely trying Opera, DT.

        • DM says:

          I block ad websites cookies and that stops the ads. I go to FF preferences / privacy / the “accept cookies” is marked to accept them, but then I go to “exceptions” and I block the websites that put the ads. Right now I have blocked:,, and many more. These websites are responsible for installing their cookies inside the browser and basically own your browser. I doubt that another browser will not allow those ads to come in, unless you block them individually. FF is great for that because it’s very easy.

        • DM says:

          If it’s not Firefox, what could it be?

          The cookies. Here is what google says about its subsidiary:

 global Internet Advertising Solutions company. Specializing in developing the solutions which make advertising work on the Internet for Web publishers and …
          Publishers – Ad Serving – Scaled Media Buying – Insights

        • DM says:

          I don’t see any ads at Peacocks and Lilies. Maybe it’s because I’ve blocked the ad cookies

    • catarina says:

      ROFL and with you all the way up to the tits part!

      PS I got rid of the stupid Pin It thing somehow.

  20. SHV says:

    ” I’ll show you my tits for it,”
    That will get you some beads on Bourbon St., don’t know about a new browser.

    The Obama administration has a new story on Benghazi. It confirms again that no help was requested outside Tripoli or the Libyan armed forces. I think it’s the first time that we learn that Doherty was part of the team that came from Tripoli to help those in Benghazi.–abc-news-politics.html
