When Wolf asked Mitt Romney if he was running in 2016 Mitt said “Go fuck yourself, Blitzer!” Okay, not really. He really said “No way, Jose!”
If we had elected Mitt we’d still have serious problems, but at least they would be getting FIXED! After the way he was treated by our media I couldn’t blame him if he took all his family and money and moved to Switzerland or some other enclave of the wealthy.
Mitt is in the news again because of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, which despite billions of rubles being spent is turning into a showcase of old-style Soviet inefficiency and new-style Russian corruption.
Mitt ran the 2002 Winter Olympics in Mormonville, USA, and did a great job with a lot less money. The same media that dismissed Mitt’s accomplishment is now aghast at how screwed up things are now in the former land of the commissars. Turns out that organizing the Olympics is more complicated than community organizing. Whodathunkit?
It could have been worse. They could have held the Winter Olympics in Detroit. They wrote the book on inefficiency and government corruption.
For reasons I don’t know I slept about 18 of the past 24 hours, and at least six of the hours I was awake came at the beginning of that period. I have no idea if I will be awake or asleep today.
