PLANET EXCLUSIVE!! WE NAME THE GOP VP CANDIDATE!! SO WHAT’s THE SHAME IN PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS STRICTLY FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT, OF COURSE … Mr. MITT’S VP CHOICE … GABBY’s HAIR …
PLANET VALENTI News and Commentary
ADD #1 TUESDAY 8/7/12 — May we cut to the chase here. Let THE PLANET be the first to report that Mitt Romney‘s choice for vice president will be … drumroll, maestro …
… MARCO RUBIO. Rubio, the junior senator from Florida, will help Romney in that key state, one that me must win to claim overall victory in November. Rubio first served in the Florida legislature in 2000. He was speak of the house in 2006. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010. Rubio’s parents came to the United States from Cuba in 1956. They became citizens in 1975.
An interesting fact about his religion. His family was Roman Catholic, but for three years when Rubio was 8-11, the family lived in Las Vegas, Nev. There, he attended the Mormon Church, which is a little known tie to Romney. Rubio made his First communion as a Catholic in 1984. The following year, he moved back to Florida. He was later confirmed and married in the Catholic Church.
There is one hitch in the official announcement, one that has the potential to change Romney’s mind. In that case, he will turn to Rob Portman as his ticket mate.
(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, TUESDAY, AUG. 7, 2012) — We won’t say anything about any point of privilege we may or may not enjoy in terms of presidential politics. We have been excoriated for allegedly being on the payroll of the Romney Campaign, as if that would be some sort of federal crime. We shall neither confirm nor deny our participation in the 2012 Presidential Campaign, since we have always kept our client list secret. This is our privilege as a private company.
Think, America, Think.
For the sake of argument, say that we ARE writing for Romney and Company. Where is the disgrace, that a Pittsfield-born lad should grow up into a role that may affect national and world politics? We don’t see it. If we or any other local should be in that position, we should be proud of that fact. We will state this as fact: We met Gov. Romney when he presided in the Commonwealth. We made friends with many in his entourage, who are now key figures in the Presidential Campaign. These are people who are playing for keeps, and they don’t entertain well slackers or any who are not equipped to add substance to the cause.
The cause is nothing less than the destiny of the United States. Shall we continue as a debtor nation, building a political base among the gimmes and those who rely on government for their existence, or shall we break free into the auspices of unrestrained capitalism of free markets, free trade, and individualism? We ask this as a question and do not present it as a statement.
Think, America. Think.
MR. MITT’s VP CHOICE
The talk is this: Who will Mr. Mitt nominate for vice president. We can say this with authority. It shall not be Condoleeza Rice. It shall not be Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey. It shall not be Nick Haley, Susans Martinez, Rick Scott, John McCain, Mike Huckabee, or John Kasich. It will not, thankfully, be a woman. Romney will not pander in such a fashion. It will also not be the airhead, Sara Palin, who, we share, will not even be an official speaker at the Republican Convention.
The VP? We can only say this much. It will be among the following: Tim Pawlenty, Rob P0rtman, Bobby Jindall, Kelly Ayotte, and Marco Rubio. You might want to put the smart money on the last name mentioned here. Ayotte had no chance. FYI: The GOP convention is slated for Aug. 27-30 in Tampa, Fla. It will be among Portman, Pawlenty, and Rubio. Take the two Ps away. THE PLANET is reporting this first: Mitt Romney’s VP choice will be Marco Rubio.
We have recently talked about the “feminzation of sports.” This phenomenon includes “everybody gets a trophy,” an abomination that has robbed the younger generation of the meaning of accomplishment and of true ‚ TRUE — self esteem. In the summer Olympics this year, we have heard all the criticisms about fat women athletes and women’s hairstyles.
C-A-S-E … I-N … P-O-I-N-T.
In today’s culture, where there is no sense of the past or the historical, perception, not reality, rules. And the perception of female athletes remains bound to the standards of popular culture, which are, in a couple of words, “thin” and “coiffed.”
Come on down, Wheaties box Gabby Douglass. This box won gold, and for that, she is now an expert on everything, including the state of her hair.
Here is Gabby’s Twitter:
“I don’t know where this is coming from. What’s wrong with my hair?” said Douglas, the first U.S. gymnast to win gold in team and all-around competition. “I’m like, `I just made history and people are focused on my hair?’ It can be bald or short, it doesn’t matter about (my) hair.”
Gabby, child. This is America, the Land of Veneer and Superficiality. Of course, it matters that your hair did not meet with savage approval. You are young. You have yet to realize how you are being used by the slave masters who love a charming young Negress under their heel.
The proper response, girl, is: “Yes, massa.”
WE’RE NOT DONE YET.
“OPEN THE WINDOW, AUNT MILLIE.”
LOVE TO ALL.
