Who says ‘Ruling Class Overlord’ more than Princess Lisa?

Mitt Romney announced today that he had been endorsed by Alaska senator Lisa Murkowski,

Really hard to say. John Kerry, maybe?

    Yeah, now that’s really going to help Romney win over conservatives. I wonder what’s next, Cocaine Smugglers For Mitt?

    They’re two peas in a pod – and there are plenty more where they came from.

    I think Lisa is a Romulan with minimal plastic surgery.  Given Mitt’s flip flop stance on illegal aliens, “her” endorsement is of no surprise.

    What, you mean these pod people?

    I can believe that.

    “Mitt Romney announced today that he had been endorsed by Alaska senator Lisa Murkowski…”

    Did Romney also announce that he had fired the aide who told him to make that public before the GOP delegates had cast even a single vote? Or is this just Romney’s political savvy coming through unencumbered?

    You do realize that at this point the RNC is basically rubbing their contempt in our faces, right?  Trump moderating a debate? Murkowski endorsements?

    The Trump debate really is an insult. Seriously, WTF? Why stroke that man’s ego any further? And why volunteer yourself to get flogged by a carnival barker, perhaps the only person in America with an ego larger than Obama’s?

    We are so boned.

    Now I know why I’m no longer a Republican and haven’t been since after the 2008 FL primary.

    Alaska love for Mitt and Rick but none for Newt. Just not that cold enough up there for the Alaska ladies yet.

    I can see Charlie Crists endorsement from my house! Willard must be thrilled.

    Yuk, nope thanks. I take Newts couch over this any day!

    An endorsement from Ted Kennedy from beyond the grave will be next.  I don’t think people fully realize what a loss it was when Murkowski beat outstanding Constitutional conservative Joe Miller in Alaska.

    LOL can you imagine what he’d say if some shadowy group started a group like that just for a lark? He’d go apeshit. It might be the first time he ever displayed genuine emotion.

    Mitt is seriously trying to lose any respect from the rank and file here.  I would’ve expelled her from the party over the stunt she pulled.

    And at least Newt has the occasional redeeming idea.

    Mitt Romney has absolutely no respect for the Tea Party and doesn’t give a damn about winning support from them. He’d rather outright diss them and hope it would get him votes from moderates, independents, and some Democrats. To him the Tea Party is expendable. He figures most of them will hold their noses and vote for him anyway.

    “He figures most of them will hold their noses and vote for him anyway.”

    Which is another example of his clulessness.

    He doesn’t have much respect for anyone outside of the elitist inner circle.  He panders to moderates and independents — and it is obvious.  He’s always reminded me of a used BMW salesman, complete with too much cologne and pomade.  That isn’t much of an endorsement.
    I don’t think it’s going to work — not this time.  Nobody will vote for this man willingly, except for his diehard supporters (which seem to be stuck at 30% tops).

    Oh, I think we saw some geniune emotion in his interview with Bret Baier.  He’s the ‘na-na-nah-na-nah!’ kid from high school.

    Let the GOP Establishment keep doing things like this, I say.  It’s a series of shining beacons that cry out ‘Run away from us as fast as you can!’
