Mitt Romney Bullies High School Classmates Into Saying Nice Things About Him

News

Preppy shit Mitt Romney is responding to today's story about him leading a high school mob to hair-rape a gay in classic style: First,apologizing while laughing his ass off, and then struggling to solicit "supporting remarks" from the few classmates he didn't terrorize. Boy howdy, we're having some fun now. Did you know that Mitt Romney also hair-raped people in college and Michael Barone also thought he was a jerk in high school? Please, don't get all caught up in the torturous "DOES THIS MATTER??" handwringing. Let's just continue laughing at how much of a little prick the youthful Mitt Romney was.


Hunter Walker notes that there was much more about wacky Romney hijinks in an earlier Washington Post story that didn't cause such a brouhaha, because it wasn't gay hair, maybe. Just dirty public university hair:

Mr. Romney’s shaving incident, which his father, former Michigan Governor George Romney revealed in a 1970 speech, occurred while he was a student at Stanford. The elder Mr. Romney said Mitt and his friends lured students from the University of California into a trap where they “shaved their heads and painted them red.”

And did you know that Mitt Romney was the French killer in Scream? (SPOILER ALERT, PREVIOUS SENTENCE):

One night in Bayonne, in southern France, Keele answered a knock on the door and saw two men, their faces hidden by sheets, ordering him in French to put his hands behind his back, turn around and not utter a word. Keele fled out the back door only to hear Romney, his mask removed, laughing uproariously in the house.

And here is almanac specialist and cherished high-end wingnut Michael Barone recalling that, much like Michael Barone, Mitt Romney was a "jerk" back at fairest Cran-upon-Brook:

BUT DOES THIS MATTER?? Eh, why the hell not.

Okay, okay, one more, which Pareene brings back to the spotlight:

We met in elementary school – we did. I was a Cub Scout, and she was riding a horse bareback over some railroad tracks. What do Cub Scouts do when they see a little girl on a horse? We picked up stones and threw them.

Well, goddamn it, a wonderful person we'd never heard of until last night is dead. Lyra McKee was 29, an investigative journalist who specialized in looking at the legacy of "the Troubles" in Northern Ireland. She was murdered by someone shooting at police during rioting in Derry, or perhaps Londonderry, depending on who you want to piss off by using either name for the city. The rioting broke out after police "started carrying out searches in the area because of concerns that militant republicans were storing firearms and explosives" in advance of attacks planned to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Police are blaming the violence and McKee's death on the "New Irish Republican Army," a radical republican group formed a few years ago from several smaller groups. Despite the name, the group has no ties to the old Provisional Irish Republican Army, which renounced violence and disarmed in 2005 following the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which was supposed to have brought peace to Northern Ireland, and kind of did, at least much of the time.

McKee is being remembered by colleagues and readers as a promising journalist who was expected to go far. A year ago, McKee signed a two-book deal with Faber & Faber; the first of the books, The Lost Boys, an investigation of eight young men who disappeared in Belfast during the Troubles in the '60s and '70s, will be published next year. A 2016 Forbes profile said "McKee's passion is to dig into topics that others don't care about." For instance, CNN reports, McKee spent five years investigating a story about the only rape crisis center in Northern Ireland and its long struggle to regain funding after the government eliminated it.
