The derelict city of Detroit is finally "getting serious" about razing thousands of boarded-up abandoned houses, and the worst ghetto crackhouse of all will soon be bulldozed: the childhood mansion of Mitt "Mittens" Romney. The Romneys and their servants once lived a life of Mormon Aristocracy in the five-bedroom two-story 5,500-square-foot estate in the once-grand neighborhood of Palmer Woods. (Actually, the neighborhood still looks nice beyond the Romney Slum Castle.) Why won't Mitt Romney pay for the destruction of his awful haunted mansion instead of making Big Government take your tax dollars to knock down this horror-haus?


The Detroit News reports:

The dilapidated home at 1860 Balmoral in Palmer Woods is slated for an emergency demolition, city officials said. Wayne County seized the house from its current owners in court in 2009, declaring it a nuisance and a demolition permit was issued at the end of March.

The Romneys lived in the home from 1941 to 1953, according to Eric Fehrnstrom, a spokesman for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Once the city blows through god knows how much federal stimulus money to knock down Mittens' manse along with another 3,000 derelict homes, Detroit will still have 90,000 vacant eyesores that still need to be knocked down -- because the broke-ass city can't afford to maintain basic services for all these ghostly shacks in mostly abandoned neighborhoods.

The question, however, is this: "How can Mitt Romney be a total asshole even about this specific situation which isn't even really his fault, as his family hasn't had anything to do with the house for sixty years?"

Easy! Mittens is always a deeply unlikeable asshole:

The younger Mr. Romney, who is considered a leading GOP presidential candidate for 2012, said "it's sad" that his childhood home is being razed, "but sadder still to consider what has happened to the city of Detroit, which has been left hollow by fleeing jobs and liberal social policies."

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
