Ringers, Stephen Colbert's black friend style

How Romney can get away with this clown-show is beyond me, but he's such a lying weaselly piece of shit he probably will. Remember Mitt Romney claiming after his NAACP speech he had "secret" black people (secret --that's kind of tough to hide?) come up and say they were "for him"? Yeah, about that:
Many of Romney’s claims were debunked by Senior Vice President for Advocacy and Policy and the Director of the Washington Bureau of the NAACP, Hilary Shelton who said that the only African Americans Romney met with after his speech were those that he brought with him. Mr. Shelton explained that Mitt Romney flew in his own African-American supporters who were not affiliated with the NAACP, in order to have some people in the crowd cheering for him.
Small plane...very small -- because when he was back amongst his SPF-5000 base Willard went full George Wallace:
Remind them of this: If they want more stuff from government, tell them to go vote for the other guy—more free stuff. But don't forget, nothing is really free. Rachel Maddow reported on Romney's remarks tonight, which he made at a fundraiser in Hamilton, Montana. Maddow sourced the comments to a pool report.
But hey I guess it gets even better:
Lawrence O’Donnell reported on his program tonight that Romney described some of the black conservatives that he flew in as members of his “kitchen cabinet”

I've tried but there's no snark forthcoming. My budding career is in shambles.

There's nothing wrong about the "kitchen cabinet" expression. It's been around for a very long time and just means an informal group of friends and advisors as opposed to the "real" cabinet.

That said, I don't believe for a second that Willard has any black friends or advisors.
