kinds of jokes about him being in the family picture.
I like Melissa Harris-Perry, but it is never cool to make such jokes about politics--- or anything else for that matter--- when it involves children. We should leave that type of behavior to the right wingnuts.
And speaking of wingnuts, as is to be expected they all pounced on the behavior of the panel on Harris-Perry's show to demonstrate that it's liberals who are the reeeaaallll racists. "At least we adopt one of them as our own. " Hey, the Duck Dynasty dude has one (a bi-racial grandchild) as well.
Maybe that's why A&E decided to bring back his show.
Anyway, I think it's time that we just left the Romney clan alone. The elections are over, and he is back to making money and taking very large family photos.
“Everybody loves a baby picture,” Harris-Perry said, “and this was one that really, a lot of people had emotions about this baby picture this year. This is the Romney family. And, of course, there on Governor Romney’s knee is his adopted grandson, who is an African-American, adopted African-American child, Kieran Romney.”
As Harris-Perry made the introduction, panelist Pia Glenn sang “One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same,” a tune whose original lyrics read “one of these things doesn’t belong.”
“And that little baby, front and center, would be the one,” she added.
“And isn’t he the most gorgeous?” Harris-Perry said. “My goal is that in 2040, the biggest thing of the year will be the wedding between Kieran Romney and North West. Can you imagine Mitt Romney and Kanye West as in-laws?”
Little Kieran should have an interesting life.
BTW, his name means black in Gaelic. No, really, it does. This has to make it so much easier to know the black Romney from all the others. *biting tongue*
Finally, if you are one of the over one million Americans who lost their unemployment benefits on Saturday I would like to say I am sorry.
Republicans just weren't willing to extend that hand out just a little longer to unemployed people.
It doesn't make moral or economic sense, but hey, it's their show in congress these days.
Apparently they think that they (the unemployed) will get too complacent and will not try hard enough to find work when that whopping $300 weekly gift from Uncle Sam just keeps pouring in.
