Don’t See How This Helps Bruce CampbellMitt Romney’s Campaign

Oh, those revolting Taxachusetts citizens! Daring to put up a site to Repeal RomneyCare’s individual mandate. With a FaceBook page, too.
This is more than just a prankster in an opposing state and Presidential campaign, if Boston Globe coverage means anything:

“Will you sign our petition to repeal the individual mandate?’’ Bridget Fay asked shoppers wheeling grocery carts past a stack of pumpkins in front of the supermarket.

Fay, a young lawyer, is the spokeswoman for a new group called Massachusetts Against Individual Mandate. If she and other petitioners can collect 69,000 valid signatures of registered voters by Nov. 23, they will clear a major hurdle toward getting a question on the November 2012 state election ballot to repeal the part of the state health care law that requires Massachusetts residents to buy medical insurance.

Apparently, the next reporting period for donations made to MAIM/Repeal Romneycare is in… September 2012, and there is no limit on donations to ballot initiative efforts, and you don’t have to be a MA resident to contribute. Cue a statement bemoaning the influence of money in politics in 3. . .2 . . .

Hayward at Human Events picks up the fact that RomenyCare staffers informed the ObamaCare legislation.

The Romney campaign is going to have to put significant capital into convincing conservatives that he is not some Mole Man, approved by the Ruling Class Overlords to blow sunshine up the conservative nethers. “I’ll repeal ObamaCare right after I’m done with GITMO,” one can envision Romney saying. Giving Individual Taxpayers the Mitt-Obama treatment. In summary: if we wanted a polished delivery, there are any number of used car joints about.

Liberty, on the other hand, never goes out of style, for all it may be driven temporarily underground, though.

Update: Bob Belvedere misses the Dead Kennedys reference by not naming his post “MAIM That Tune

    I just wish you’d stop sullying the name of Bruce Campbell.

    Also, I wonder about the wisdom of calling your group MAIM.

    Hear! Hear!  Bruce Campbell is a nice guy who knows what he’s doing.

    They WERE going to call it #OccupyTheEmergencyRoom but that sounded defeatist…

    Great name, a real attention getter. Any one who’s put off by the name is probably lost to the species any way.

    You know occasionally I watch Burn Notice hoping against hope that he’ll use some of these lines.  Though he must be sick of those movies by now.  Still.  I think I’d fall out of my couch laughing if he used some of these lines on air.
