Mitt Romney spotted in the wild. 

bigfoot.

yikes

“I once had it all…” Jesus, it looks like he’s been sitting around eating nothing but McDonald’s and swimming in his money vault all day.

Taken from this reddit post. Key comment from redditor millionsofmonkeys:

If he cried a tear per minute over his loss, and used a new $100 bill to wipe each tear, he would still have fresh 100s after 3.8 years.

The first five votes of the election are in (thanks to Dixville Notch, NH):

motherjones:

evanfleischer:

Obama: 5.

Romney: 5.

(It’s the town’s first ever tie, by the way.)

UPDATE: 12:33AM: CNN’s Saeed Ahmed writes that Hart’s Location, NH also voted, and that Obama got 23 votes and Romney got 9.

Whew. Now we can settle down to eat our Dixville Nachos.

Chart: Almost Every Obama Conspiracy Theory Ever

Romney literally stays silent when asked about climate change. This is really awkward…

Why do they start chanting U-S-A?

"Governor, you’ve been asked 14 times. Why are you refusing to answer the question?"

— Mitt Romney not answering reporter as to whether he would eliminate FEMA during event for hurricane victims.  (via officialssay)

maxistentialist:

ThinkProgress misattributed my “Cavalrymen for Romney” site to the Obama Campaign, and now there’s a lot of conspiracy theorists on Twitter including Garance Franke-Ruta, a senior editor at The Atlantic, who think the site suggests that Obama planned that line.
For the record, this site had nothing to do with the Obama campaign. I voluntarily linked it to the President’s website, because that’s a good resource for learning about his policies.
I definitely made the site quickly, but I didn’t have any advance knowledge of what would happen in the debate. When I heard Obama’s line about horses and bayonets, I thought about how funny those things would be as special interests (big horse), and that gave me the idea for the site. Once I had the idea, it only took me about ten minutes to launch it, and it was online well before the debate was over.
Here’s how I did it:
I grabbed the first big Google Image search result for “cavalry” that was on a white background
I copy/pasted the Romney logo onto his pike and mocked up the “learn more” button
I exported my images and coded the site by hand in HTML and CSS… my TextExpander snippets let me assemble a site like that very, very quickly
To eliminate domain name propagation time, I purchased the domain from my registrar (Gandi.net) and set it to redirect with a mask to a subdomain on my site

This is important. Read.

Big Bird is so sad he actually turned blue.
"Look- every fucking election cycle, some pseudo-intellectual wanker out to make a name for himself pens a 10,000 word screed with the novel thesis that… GASP… both candidates have flaws (SUCH A NEW AND NOVEL IDEA! WHY HAS NO ONE EVER COME UP WITH THIS REALIZATION BEFORE). I’m just over commenting on it. Yes, Obama has flaws, yes I disapprove of the drone strikes. But it takes a weapons grade moron to think that voting for Romney or voting for a third party is in any way going to change the status quo. It takes heightened levels of self-delusion."

This Single Chart Explains a Lot About the GOP Convention
(via NY Mag)
"England is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn’t make things that people in the rest of the world want to buy. And if it hadn’t been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler’s ambitions."

— Mitt Romney in 2010 • Saying something that probably isn’t going over too well right now in England. The quote is from his book “No Apology: The Case for American Greatness,” and resurfaced today amidst his visit to London. For the record, England isn’t a island. source (viafollow)
