I have successfully avoided political arguments on Facebook and among friends. That is something to be proud of this election year as emotions are at an all-time high. What I haven’t avoided though, is making fun of the Republican candidate. Politics aside, his gaffes have been some of the best in my lifetime. And I thought Sarah Palin, the reality tv-like train wreck, was the best comedic political experience I would experience in my lifetime. Who would have thought the next election cycle would top the outlandish antics of merely four years ago?
How can anyone say “binders full of women” and promising to fire Big Bird isn’t comedic relief in this contentious political environment? The presidential debates were pure entertainment, waiting to hear what Romney would say next while speculating the level of fun that would come from the next inappropriate comment he made.
Add to it unbelievably callous comments about 47% of Americans, and thinking it’s okay to strap a dog to the roof of a car. Comedians aren’t having to work very hard this year to keep us laughing with their take on anything that comes out of Romney’s mouth.
Each day on Facebook I see a constant stream of anti-Romney postings. I feel sorry for the guy (okay, not really). With today being the last day (aren’t you happy it’s over?) of the election campaign, I thought I would throw Romney a bone by using my public platform to get a last minute message across to the American people. The guy needs all the help he can get.
Here’s a video, a political Hail Mary this last day, for a guy who has hurt his chance to become president each time he has opened his mouth, pissed off Brits, recently provoked the ire of Italians, and more.
Maybe Mr. Burns can do a little damage control, and sway some voters.
