The October Surprise Romney Will Never Forget

This photo labled "Even out of fly-fishing season, Mitt was known to hone his angling skills among Detroit’s poor," shows his early disconnect from America's not-so-wealthy, taunting a homeless man with a dollar bill on a fishing line? It's damn near sociopathic.

(Satire) This photo labled "Even out of fly-fishing season, Mitt was known to hone his angling skills among Detroit’s poor," shows his early disconnect from America's not-so-wealthy, taunting a homeless man with a dollar bill on a fishing line? It's damn near sociopathic.

Wow. Mitt Romney showing his um, true "character."

Vanity Fair:

Imagine this: as the election winds to a close, Vanity Fair uncovers a shoe box of old yearbook photos, newspaper clippings, and snapshots of a teenaged Mitt Romney. Our source is a disgruntled employee in the Romney-family stables who insisted that she be referred to only as “R.R.” before handing us the previously unseen images. In them, a very recognizable Mitt goofs off with friends and engages in the kinds of pranks for which he is well remembered from his days at the Cranbrook School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. His now familiar childhood grin is on full display as he mocks gay classmates, slips a teacher a Mickey, and even fires a beloved school janitor. That Mitt! Such a goof! A handsome, wealthy goof!

There's a photo of a young Romney -- and remember, he's over 18-years-old -- attacking a tiny elderly woman who is walking with a cane, pouring bleach into a teacher's coffee mug, a school paper reporting on his efforts to fire a beloved school janitor in order to save costs by outsourcing those services to Canada.

There's even a photo of Romney playing with an Etch-a-Sketch!

"Handsome wealthy goof"? I see only a much clearer picture of the obnoxious arsehole who has been on display during this entire campaign.
