One of those mornings when I look at the political news and think: “Is this the Stupid Election or what?” So here’s the Sex Pistols with “Pretty Vacant,” performed in Dallas in 1978.

    Yep, this is the stupid election because lies are sold as truth. And the media just reports the lies as truth.

    But this is not Tweedledee versus Tweedledum. A Romney presidency will crush the future for tens of millions of Americans of all ages. Meanwhile, international affairs would become more unstable, which is exactly what the terrorists want.

    So, Romney would be an all-around lose-lose proposition, except for the very wealthy and the terrorists.

    Or as I've long called it - Mitt Romney's campaign anthem...

    Hint: "or what" ain't the correct answer.

    Wow, it must have been fun playing in front of all those shop front dummies. Maybe Romney should win, and then finally people will come out of their tupor.
