Adolf Hitler was famously responsible for the bombing of London, but Mitt Romney’s trip to England resulted in a massive bombing IN London. It was an absolute disaster; he could hardly open his mouth without saying something irretrievably stupid and insulting. And as Andrew Sullivan points out, the conservative press has been virtually silent about it. Except Dan Riehl, who manages to make it far worse:
A Limp Wrist-ed David Cameron hits back at Mitt Romney over Olympic doubts
Get over it, Britain. You’re a second rate, semi-degenerate nation still on the way down because you went too far to the left too long ago for anyone to care about. Don’t expect us to wring our hands over what you losers did. We’re too busy fighting to make sure it doesn’t happen here.
I really give a flip about what David Cameron thinks. yawn … just be glad we continue to allow you to think you’re actually in the game on most things. Now, get out of our face and try to not screw up the Olympics more than you have already.
Mostly a bunch of feckless wankers if you ask me. Put a Gold Medal on that and aim it at the Queen’s arse.
Ah, such charm, grace and wit. I think Romney has his first ambassador nominee.
