The Romney sightings: Once more, Mitt feeling

Back in the ’70s, there was a TV commercial for a vinyl compilation of great themes from classical music. These weren’t just any randomly selected masterpieces, but ones that had been featured prominently in Hollywood films and other popular media. Hence the presumed appeal to us uncultured, Late Show-watching types. The commercial was narrated by...

Free shots and more at Tears & Cheers: Orlando Weekly’s Election Party

Whether you’re buying the tense-faced Everyman-isms and vagaries of Republican Mitt Romney (Red Rumble Romney shots for you!) or the professorial deconstructions and juiced-up practicalities of Democrat Barack Obama (Obama Mama shots for you!), you’d be wise to join us for the point when they all blur together at Bullitt Bar.

Just Desserts! So, Vice President Joe Biden walks into a Dairy Queen in Orlando and…

This is what happens when you stay in on a Friday night. According to a VPOTUS pool report from this evening, Joe Biden popped by a Dairy Queen in Orlando (doesn’t specify where in Orlando, but PROBABLY near the interstate) sometime around 7 p.m. and “ordered a chocolate and vanilla swirl, then chatted with...

“The Dead Zone” redux: End of the line for Romney?

This isn’t the sort of revelation that puts you in line to be the next David Gregory, but what the heck: Most of what I know about politicians, I learned from Greg Stillson. Stillson, you may or may not recall, is the antagonist of the Stephen King book and movie The Dead Zone. He’s...

Eastwood the racist: The ugly, the ugly and the ugly

When Clint Eastwood pulled out his now-notorious empty chair at the RNC, I was lounging in front of the TV with my glasses off, resting my eyes after a long day of working on the computer. In my myopic stupor, I couldn’t tell what in the hell was going on; I had to ask...

Today in journalism: The Sentinel loved Romney’s speech even before he gave it.

What did you think of Mitt Romney’s big speech? (If you’re having trouble remember, it was the thing that happened just after the Great Clint Eastwood Performance Art Meltdown of 2012, which we suspect was secretly arranged by the Obama campaign, those cunning devils.) Well, as it turns out, the Orlando Sentinel thought it was...

So tonight’s the night. The Repubs have officially nominated Willard Mitt Romney for president, Paul Ryan for vice president...

OW goes to the RNC: Embargo blowjob, part 8!

The RNC has started sending us copies of today’s speeches, with the specific instructions that these are “embargoed until delivery.” But these speeches are dumb and boring and terribly predictable and inconsequential anyway, so we’re going to blow the embargo, because we can, and because embargoes are stupid, and because we really don’t care...

OW goes to the RNC: Mitt Romney, get your hand out of my pocket! (UPDATE!)

Billy’s doing his hair right now, which means I have a couple hours to kill (kidding, kidding). In the meantime, here’s a rundown of some convention-related odds and ends we’ve come across this morning. Here’s a creepy new MoveOn.org ad (from which the screen grab above was taken) for your viewing pleasure. And a...

Sunday Under the Bus with the Dems and Debbie Wasserman Schultz

With everybody still atwitter about Saturday’s announcement of “next President of the United States” Paul Ryan – and everybody similarly perplexed at Mitt Romney’s alleged Orlando stop highlighting the profitability of foreclosure on Monday that wasn’t – the Democratic National Committee put tires to tarmac on Sunday afternoon for a reprise of its “Romney...
