That Crazy Mitt....

I realize it was the shortest lived hiatus in history, but I cannot help but write about this latest political...thing. But, I figure if I stay away from endorsing candidates or talking about national security or anything slightly related to the military, the fact I'm an officer can't really have much effect. No one, I assume, who reads this will think "Hmm...he's a military officer, so his views on agriculture in Oklahoma must have more weight."

In any case, last night the democrats talked about a children's book and that made Mitt Romney angry. So, today, he wrote the following on his website:

We need to strengthen our families by passing a federal marriage amendment and also insisting on marriage before having children.

ha ha, yes! Just when you thought the wingnuts couldn't get any wingier, now one of the front-runners in the presidential election is openly calling for federal legislation insisting on marriage before having children. I wonder what kind of great ideas he has for enforcing that? Maybe we could tie the tubes of all pre-pubescent girls and then, when they get married, we could untie them? Hmm...this one's giving me some things to think about, you know, logistically and all.

Your cheerful skepticism becomes you...I don't really associate that with army officers. i kind of think of them exclusively in terms of "hooah," things being All Good or All Bad. I like having my stereotypes blasted.

btw, agreed on mitt and sanctimonious prattle about marriage. i actually think he's a capable guy, but he didn't help himself in the Serious department with this non-sequitir.

Chastity belts--the new trend for fall. Or child marriage, obvi.
