I'm Scott and I'm a New Yorker now living in Seattle and Bill is my oldest friend who just finished serving an almost 7 year prison sentence for selling meth.
Bill in Exile originally contained letters written between Bill and me while Bill was in prison as well as a bunch of other shit but Bill has, as of late, opted out of contributing and I've just been too lazy to change the name of the blog.
Some of what this site contains IS DEFINITELY NOT work safe and some of it may not be appropriate for those under 18 years of age. Navigate away if you have doubts. And if I've used an image for which you hold the rights and wish me to remove it or credit it please send me a POLITE email and I will be more than happy to do so.
Everybody seems to be concentrating on the 47%-remark, but I find the Palestine-Israel blunder even more damning. And not just the part where he slanders the Palestinians as having no will for peace whatsoever, but mainly what follows after that.
Because what he’s basically saying is that he’s given up to even think about a political solution for a political problem even before he’s started. Note well that the guy is running for a political office. But he won’t even try to do political work.
Yes, that’s Mitt Romney: He won’t even try to do the job he is applying for. And he is bragging about that during his job interview. (And nobody, nobody!, of the people who listened to him at that event even found that strange enough to—say—at least drop their fork.)
He won’t even try to do the job he is applying for. (Of course the reason for that is that in his mind the political office he’s running for isn’t about working on political problems and issues in a political way to begin with, but it’s only about funneling more money into his own pockets, and the pockets of the happy few who pay a lot of money to get him into office. Basically, he’s Berlusconi without the prostitutes.)
Actually, the fact that Romney is associated in any way whatever with a guy who holds sex parties is the most human thing I’ve heard about him EVER. Not that I’d vote for the son of a bitch, but the smell of scandal, even by proxy, is kind of fun.
