Mitt Romney may have had his best moment yesterday when campaigning in Illinois. He was asked a question by a female student about, what else, birth control. Actually, it really wasn’t a question; it was a snide and stupid comment. Anyway, Romney somehow managed to give a great response to the blissfully ignorant dupe in the audience.
See video and commentary by Charlie Spiering courtesy of the Washington Examiner here.
Romney cracks me up in the beginning when he says ‘here’s the microphone, watch this.’ I guess he had the advantage of seeing this piece of work and knew what was coming. She was probably wearing a Sandra Fluke t-shirt, or something.
By the way, didn’t she sort of sound like a female version of the Spicoli character played by that other genius, Sean Penn, in the film Fast Time at Ridgemont High?
Although the woman (and I use the term loosely) that made the comment definitely produces some comical value, it gets scary quickly when you think that she and her fellow students are going to be the future of our country. Unless there’s a supernatural event of cosmic proportions that creates a spontaneous world-wide awakening, we’re in big trouble. More simply put; if these dummies don’t wake the f**k up, we’re all screwed.
All the rest of us can do is fight and pray.
