Gemli Response to Gail Collins — 4Jan2018

I’ve always said that when Mitt Romney enters a room you get the feeling that someone interesting just left. He doesn’t have a presence as much as he creates a void.

But lest anyone think that Romney is a cipher, we should look back at the horrific Republican platform under which he ran for president. The misogyny, the homophobia and the smack-down of all the moochers and takers (remember that?) would make Mitch McConnell smile, and Jeff Sessions fall off of his lily pad.

Sure, why not resurrect Mitt? The wheels are coming off this clown car of an administration, and a blast from the past might provide some much needed comic relief. While we’re at it, let’s see if we can dig up Sarah Palin. It would be nice to see Tina Fey on SNL again.

Mitt and the current squatter in the Oval Office have a few things in common. Both were born with a platinum, jewel-encrusted spoon lodged firmly in their mouths. Both make incomprehensible statements during campaign speeches, and one’s a Mormon, while the other’s a moron. Mere coincidence? I think not.

The president always comes up with insultingly juvenile nicknames for challengers. Hmm, let’s see…what rhymes with Mitt? Ah, Twit! Mitt the Twit! That sounds like something the president would say.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. The president is barely a year into his administration, and we’re already flirting with nuclear Armageddon. With any luck, there won’t be a 2020.

Again Totally Hilarious!

    “One’s a Mormon, the other is a Mormon. Mere coincidence? I think not.”
    Hilarious is right!

    I misquoted:

    “…one’s a Mormon, while the other’s a MORON!”

    Right! I like that guy Gemli, whoever he is, from Boston. He posts some wicked good stuff.

    But you gotta look a Maureen Dowd’s column in the NYT today! She writes a poem about a snake. And then see the comments to her article.

    Good, Kate! And Happy Birthday soon!
