Rounding out today’s best responses to turncoat freshman senator Romney is the inestimable John Nolte of Breitbart, who summed it up nicely in his headline: “Mitt Romney Is an Idiot.”
But maybe a better headline would have been a paraphrase Elizabeth Barrett Browning: “How is Mitt Romney an idiot? Let me count the ways.”
Nolte absolutely savages Romney. First he calls him “an opportunistic sleaze bag gorging on sour grapes and his own monstrously selfish sense of virtue” but turns out that was his opinion BEFORE Romney wrote his gratuitous op-ed in the Washington Post.
Now he is “a preening, backstabbing, undermining, half-witted peacock whose first official act as an incoming U.S. Senator is to sucker punch Trump, the man who not only endorsed you in Utah, but did so graciously after you launched a series of unhinged and very personal attacks against Trump during the 2016 campaign.”
There is much more of this delightful Gore Vidal style knifework in Nolte’s column, but perhaps nothing can top this jab at Romney:
“If Mitt Romney were on fire, I wouldn’t spit on him.”
The good news is that, as Nolte declares, we now never have to worry about the repulsive Romney ever being elected president!
