Bwahahahahaha, LOLGOP, Mitt Romney — August 1, 2012 at 10:41 am

The International Tour of Shame & Embarrassment concludes. Welcome back, Mitt!


“A gold medal gaffe…”

I don’t know about you, but the “Kiss my ass, show some respect” line from the Romney campaign in Poland this week was the clear gold medal winner on Mitt Romney’s International Tour of Shame & Embarrassment™.

The DNC has put together a nice collection of headlines and news clips from the Tour™. It’s … well, it’s just plain awesome sauce with a side order of HA!

“…an international tour that featured some major gaffes…”

“…a trip marked with self-inflicted wounds at EVERY stop…”

“From Mitt Romney, a gold medal gaffe…”

“That’s right, he said ‘shove it’ and ‘kiss my blank’ at a site he himself described as holy place…”

Perhaps the funniest part is that the Romney campaign as spinning the trip is a “great success”:

In the estimation of Mitt Romney and his top campaign aides, there were no gaffes, no mistakes, no ill-advised statements on the Republican candidate’s overseas trip. {…}

[A]s the candidate wrapped up his last leg in Poland, a senior Romney adviser said the campaign will land back in the U.S. late Tuesday, supremely confident of the results on the ground.

“I think it was a great success,” Romney adviser Stuart Stevens said after the GOP contender’s foreign policy speech in Warsaw, the last leg of the campaign’s three-country tour.

Just a reminder: Mitt is not yet the Republican nominee for president. That means there is still time for Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, or Ron Paul to have a chance.

And, no, I’m NOT kidding.

And, no, Jon Huntsman does NOT have a chance.
