Politics “I’m Mitt Romney and I approved this ad.”

I caught—or was subjected to—my first ‘08 presidential campaign ad last night. More than a year and half out. It was for Mitt “Mormon Underpants” Romney. The ad featured Romney’s wife of 35 years talking about what a swell guy he is, how he rescued the Olympics, how he got his conservative ass elected in a liberal state, look at that jaw, etc. Then we got to hear a bit from Mitt himself. Americans are overtaxed, Mitt said, and laws should be made by the people’s elected representatives and not, you know, all those porn-lovin’, baby-killin’, gay-marryin’ unelected judges in their creepy black robes.
It was dispiriting—especially because it came on during Olbermann, and I don’t watch Keith’s show because I’m interested in hearing right-wing bullshit about taxes and unelected judges.
Anyway, in honor of Mitt “Mormon Underpants” Romney, here’s a classic YouTube take-down of the Mormon church and their annoying Mormon missionaries. Another Australian comic taking on America’s religious nuts—it’s long, but it’s worth five minutes of your time.
