Culture Club

Lately Mitt Romney and his gang of recycled Bush Advisers (the only kind of recycling they believe in) have been working hard at ethnography.

First they went on about an "Anglo-Saxon" heritage, now Mitt has moved on to taking a dig at the Palestinians in Israel and why they are "the poors":
“Culture makes all the difference,” Mr. Romney said. “And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things.”
Oh never mind they are rather "occupied" Palestinian territories, or that Netanyahu himself admits they have been economically brutalized, no it is their "culture" that is the Palestinian's problem.

There was also something else we learned and that is John McCain studied this statement with all the care he exercised in looking at 23-years of Mitt's tax returns.
“I am sure that Gov. Romney was not talking about difference in cultures, or difference in anybody superior or inferior”
Um, yeah.

If it’s Tuesday, it must be Poland’s turn to play Effendi to Willard’s Offendi.

In the words of Lech Walesa, I wish Rmoney success. Poland did the trick for Gerald Ford, too.

Mitt's comments make me think he should offer the VP slot to the reanimated corpse of Jimmy the Greek or Al Campanis.
