Is Mitt Romney a Unicorn?

Pretty silly question, huh? Well, several bloggers have begun a campaign to “investigate”, even creating a website (is-mitt-romney-a-unicorn.com) Their logic and criteria are, of course, absurd, but that is precisely their point; they are using exactly the same logic that Arizona’s Secretary of State and Bozo Trump are using to claim that President Obama is not really a native-born U.S. citizen.

Now that the birthers are (we can only hope) ultimately humiliated, is there any chance that we can start focussing on real issues? Not only is this birtherism a distraction, we all know in our subconscious that birtherism is racist.

The sterotypical racist is depicted as an undereducated redneck hick. That is a dangerous presumption. Sometimes, racists wear $1000+ suits and look respectable…with the possible exception of their hair.

    I have a step father that is an aerospace engineer. He believes this stuff. He hates socialism but loves his SS but of course he paid for that. He loves his Medicare that he of course paid for…He loves his NASA grants that supplements all of the above.
    So can birthers be humiliated? Do they lack the embarrassment gene?
    Better yet do they really want to talk about the real issues?
    I submit that he and his peers now in their seventies don’t care (as they pretend ) but their age has deprived them of filters. They embrace the dogma everyday. The blood rushes his body like a teenager. Each day a new rush, like a drug. Forget working on a rocket, Forget the garden. We are outraged. Ahh but for the drugs of rage. Edward Bernay would be proud. Fox know this..
