Help Us Name Mitt’s Next Lie

Mitt Romney has won one election in his life, and the state that elected him now rejects him by a nearly 2-1 margin. Why?

One thing that Mitt Romney does consistently, whether he’s playing moderate or severely conservative, is lie.

His strategic confusion is probably geared to get people to talk about what he’s saying and not what he’d do—transfer ridiculous amounts of wealth from the middle class to the richest.

During the last debate, the president finally got the chance to rebut Romney’s biggest lie of the campaign—that the president went on “an apology tour” because he didn’t praise George W. Bush’s policies.

“Nothing Gov. Romney just said is true,” the president said, “starting with this notion of me apologizing. This has been probably the biggest whopper that’s been told during the course of this campaign. And every fact-checker and every reporter who has looked at it, Governor, has said this is not true.

Since we can’t rebut Romney to his face, we figure a little mockery is the next best thing.

“nobsartist” helped us trump Trump’s ridiculous announcement by suggesting that Mr. Romney’s Donald Trump association is as more than supporters and neither has a birth certificate he could produce.

Now we want to know what you think Mitt’s next lie will be.

Post your guess in the comments, then ask your friends to like it. The winning suggestion will appear in our Friday newsletter.

If you are lucky in your life, you come to know one or two people who made you who you are other than your parents who gave you the extraordinary gift of life. Edwin Fancher, who it is my sad duty to inform you died last Wednesday in his apartment on Gramercy Park at the age of 100, is one such person in my life. He was one of the three founders of The Village Voice, the Greenwich Village weekly that became known as the nation’s first alternative newspaper. The Voice, and he, were so much more than that.

How Is That Whole 'Law And Order' Thing Working Out For You, Republicans?

Former Georgia Republican Party chair David Shafer

One of the great ironies – and there are more than a few – in the case in Georgia against Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants is the law being used against them: The Georgia RICO, or Racketeering and Corrupt Organizations Act. The original RICO Act, passed by Congress in 1970, was meant to make it easier for the Department of Justice to go after crimes committed by the Mafia and drug dealers. The first time the Georgia RICO law was used after it was passed in 1980 was in a prosecution of the so-called Dixie Mafia, a group of white criminals in the South who engaged in crimes of moving stolen goods and liquor and drug dealing.
