Alternate Universe Republicans

In a startling reversal of conservative orthodoxy, which is militantly capitalist, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry–both right-wing conservatives–attack Mitt Romney for his past as a gangster capitalist.

  1. Even stranger:

    At my job, I’m sometimes forced to listen to right-wing radio – in particular Rush and Hannity.

    Last couple of days it seems they’ve been attacking Romney too. Strange, huh? I can only guess that the Republican party is trying to squeeze some kind of concession or promise out of him.

    On the other hand, he seems guaranteed a nomination based on this: http://www.opensecrets.org/pres12/contrib.php?id=N00000286&cycle=2012

    Doesnt matter tho. Precious little difference betw. Rep’s and Dem’s.

  2. Excellent cartoon, Ted. I am really entertained by this line of attack on Romney. It’s not new, this is how Edward Kennedy defeated him in ’94. But to see it within the Republican primary makes me very happy. It is clear that a certain group of Republicans recognize that their hold on idiot-America might be slipping…not much…but they sense it could at least. Thus, they are forced into a situation where they expose that they KNOW their position isn’t a majority position, but they can’t do anything about it because their overlords call the shots.

  3. Well, according to usually reliable sources, it would seem that in this particular alternative universe, Mr Romney’s family has not yet been dispossessed and thus has the economic wherewithal to pay for the bullet…
