Put yourself in the place of the effeminate young man who, in 1965, at an upscale Michigan prep school, was the target of a young Mitt Romney’s “prank”. There were several witnesses to the incident, which does not smack of prank at all to me. It was simply an attack, due to Romney’s intolerance for someone who was different, and it was paraded as a prank when the shit hit the fan, which basically didn’t happen until recently. And then the story was effectively squelched.
(May I say, for a bunch of 1%’ers who supposedly have always hated Romney’s guts, they sure do have his back when their ass is on the line.)
But I digress. The victim was an peculiar young man with unusual, long blond locks who pranced about Mitt’s prep-school campus like Audrey Hepburn on a date at Tiffany’s. (Or maybe more like Truman Capote at Sardi’s?) This bugged Sir Mitt, and he had to fix that bug. So, one day, Romney and his followers held the alleged feygala down, and forcibly cut his hair. (Wonder how much that shock of top would get on eBay today?) There were never any repercussions for Romney or his gang of rogue scissorists, due to his family’s high standing in the community.
What must the victim have been thinking when all this went down? “Oh, shit.” “Why me?” “I knew I shouldn’t have used that greasy new conditioner today.” We can’t ask him, because he’s dead. But I’ll bet he suffered terribly at the hands of Mitt that day, as well as every day he lived, until the day he died in 2004.
Based on this event alone, I’ve come to the conclusion that Mitt Romney is not of good character. He is not worthy to be president of our nation, no matter what his governing experience and business acumen are; no matter how much money he has to outspend Obama, and no matter how much his wife praises him. Anyone who is capable of, even in his teen years, committing such an act of bullying may have tremendous difficulty dealing with his xenophobia, which is something every president will end up feeling at times, especially when dealing with foreign affairs, an area in which Mitt has little to no experience.
Plus, the man cannot sing.
