Jabberwocky

Ok...so let me get this straight. Obamacare isn't a penalty, it's a tax, and therefore legal, but Romneycare is not a tax, it's just a penalty? I see. And matter is anti-matter, and protons are neutrons, and black is white, and night is day. Now I get it! Mitt Romney is the Mad Hatter disguised as a candidate for President, and the Jabberwocky is his bible. He might as well just say it all at once, and be done with it. "'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe. ". There!

At least most Americans can understand that concept. Romney might as well be giving lectures on the "Higgs Boson" particle, as explaining his position on the Affordable Health Care Act. We really need a gifted translator to cipher through all of this doublespeak.

I guess the bottom line for Romney is that Truth doesn't matter, but the perception of it does. Go figure that one out. And while you're at it, maybe someone can explain how Romney really saved the auto industry by opposing the governments rescue of it a couple of years back too. Maybe it's just that a Ford is really a Chevy, and a Hudson Hornet is actually a Studebaker, and cars run on gas that doesn't come from oil. He might as well be selling us Edsels.

Methinks Romney has been listening to Frank Luntz, the Republican wordsmith sorcerer ,too much, or else he has been sniffing glue. Either way, Romney's view of things is like Alice Through the Looking glass on steroids.

Let's also remember that this is the same guy who said "Corporations are people,too, my friend", and contraception is perfectly ok unless you are using it to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Maybe it all just depends on your definition of what is , is. Did anyone actually have sex with that woman? Crystal clear, isn't it? Didn't this same guy also say, "I stand by my statement---whatever it was"?

I guess the ultimate question is whether all of this matters come November.Truth is, no matter what Romney says, the Obama haters will still vote for the Elephant in the room, even if he is the Emperor who would wear no clothes. But there may still just be a tiny fraction of our population, say the 10 per cent independent thinking faction, who might actually be paying attention to what is being said, be persuaded by the facts not the frivolous fulminating that passes for campaigning for office, and adjust their votes accordingly. After all, they are the group that will give the swing states their swing. Hope does spring eternal, and maybe they will be the ones who ultimately save us from going collectively down the rabbit hole of electoral history.

In the meantime, welcome to The Mad Hatter's Tea Party, posing as the 2102 Presidential Election campaign.
