RNC Convention Ka-Ray-Zee: Where the Insanity meets the Inanity

5. Imperious Mommy Knows Best Award:  Ann Romney, for explaining stuff to dumb brown people ” ‘You better really look at the issues this time. We better really look at your future and figure out who’s going to be the guy who’s going to make it better for you and your children.’ And there is only one answer.”





6.  The Oy vey award: Lindsey Graham– “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

I left a moribund Western Pennsylvania mill town the year that Richard M. Nixon was not impeached for crimes against the American people, and set off in search of truth, beauty, justice and a beat I could dance to. Here I am.

    Ann Romney famously said, “We’ve paid all the taxes that are legally required.” What she didn’t say is that they didn’t pay taxes on the money in their offshore bank accounts because taxes on those accounts are not legally required. Anyone can set up an offshore corporation linked to an offshore bank account in a no tax jurisdiction where no taxes are ever legally required. Ann, why don’t you elaborate a little on that? Tell us why no taxes were legally required on most of the money you and Mitt made.

    “We’ve paid all the taxes that are legally required” is sounding more and more like the divine right of kings argument. The American people aren’t buying that.
