The Liberal-Franco-Islamo-Fascist-Marxist Menace

For someone who actually spent several years living in France, Mitt Romney is remarkably ignorant about the country if he really thinks Hillary Clinton is running on a platform that’s too left-wing to win an election there. He also called her a Marxist, demonstrating once again that Romney’s key strategy to winning the GOP nomination despite his moderate pre-campaign political profile is to say a lot of crazily dumb stuff.

In the rest of the article, we learn that president Romney will crack down on “child-sex predators” and loves torture. Perhaps the predators will be tortured. Except he doesn’t quite have the guts to say he embraces torture. Rather, he insisted that “enhanced interrogation . . . is not a euphemism for torture” which, of course, it clearly is.
