The best part of politics: because they're all screwing us anyway.

Romney passive verb alert

Ok, so it's not dirty, but the politico-sexual news has been slow (yeah, yeah, Bush held hands with a dude, old news) and the grammar queen in me is happy to find any excuse to be outraged at Mitt Romney, the asshole--I mean governor--of Massachusetts.

Not only does he want to reinstate the death penalty in Mass., which is fucking ridiculous (although his proposals for strict evidence standards would be nice if they could be implemented in the states that actually have the death penalty), he egregiously abused the English language by using an unnecessary passive verb where the active verb would have been stronger:

Mr. Romney said he hoped the safeguards in his bill would convince legislators who are "on the fence" about the death penalty that "if you commit a heinous crime of this nature, the ultimate price will have to be paid by you."

Yeah, Mitt, the price for that statement will be paid by you when you run for reelection, asshole.

Moral of the story: Republicans suck. See: assholes, sucking, that's dirty. I'm not off top--ooh, pretty colors!

But seriously...if I were Rude Pundit, I'd start making up a molestation metaphor for Romney's disturbing misuse of the English language and/or mistreatment of his constituents, kind of like this.

Except I can't, because that just made me sick, and the thought of Mitt Romney fucking anyone or anything other than metaphorically makes me sick too.

I want to save the institution of marriage from nasty-ass Republican fucks like Romney and Bush and DeLay and Frist. Marriage is between a Democrat and Democrat. If you start letting Republicans marry, you're giving them the message that their agenda is acceptable, and the next thing you know they'll be raping endangered species.

    Uggh.....mitt the dimwit. There is no such thing as an "error-proof" safe-guard. I've yet to meet an error-proof human being, and last time i checked, that is who would be conducting the "error-proof" death penalty. He's just grandstanding for a republican audience nationally so he can run for president. He puts the ass in Masshole.

    Yeah, he sure does. Everything he does is such transparent sucking-up to the radical right wing in hopes of getting their support for president. And the thought of a President Romney is pretty damn scary. But at this point, I don't think either party will nominate someone from Massachusetts for a long, long time. And for the time being, the Mass legislature is controlled by Dems and won't do anything he wants. So we don't really have much to worry about from him. But he's still no fun. Grrr.
