Bigmouth Strikes Again

The moronic Mormon provides another gaffe to remember 

Another fundraiser, another fuck up for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, this time in Iowa. Mitt Romney is a gift that keeps on giving; a well of comedy that refuses to run dry. Only problem is, he’s running for president of the United States, the most powerful political position on earth. This guy makes George Bush look intelligent and strategic.

At Tuesday’s fundraiser he managed to confuse ‘Sikhs’ with ‘sheiks’; the latest blunder on his blunder-filled campaign trail. Earlier in the day, whilst in Illinois, he had correctly referred to the Sikh religion before observing a minute’s silence in the honour of those who died during the Sikh temple shooting in Wisconsin. But Romney wouldn’t be Romney if he didn’t cock things up for himself, something he duly did during the evening fundraising dinner; an event which, remarkably, managed to raise in the region of $2 million for this fruitcake’s bid to become president.

Romney said:

We had a moment of silence in honour of the people who lost their lives at that sheik temple. I noted that it was a tragedy for many, many reasons. Among them are the fact that people, the sheik people, are among the most peaceable and loving individuals you can imagine, as is their faith. And of course, the person who carried out this heinous act was a person motivated by racial hatred and religious intolerance.

Now, have I gone batshit crazy or is it absolutely mental that this bloke is running for office? His spokesman, Rick Gorka, later offered a feeble defence of his man, claiming Romney had simply “mispronounced similar sounding words.”

When that’s your best defence you know you’re in a hole.

Gorka was also at pains to point out that Mitt had a long day campaigning, starting at 7am. Oh well, that’s alright then!

The US elections start in exactly 90 days. If this moron wins, the world has gone completely mad.
