In the comments to “Score!” Kris Overstreet made the following suggestions:

And:

I must admit that once the images are removed from their vile original context, they’re a fitting all-purpose figure for the intellectual dishonesty that makes Romney such a despicable human being.

    What makes this so beautiful, apart from the fact that it works as an easy bit of meme-errific rhetoric, is that the photos come from the same event. You don’t even have to go digging through AP image archives to find the right expressions!

        Fair enough – I’m just fuming over that and wanted to vent.

      He wouldn’t, though:

      “At many stages in the advance of humanity, this conflict between the men who possess more than they have earned and the men who have earned more than they possess is the central condition of progress. In our day it appears as the struggle of freemen to gain and hold the right of self-government as against the special interests, who twist the methods of free government into machinery for defeating the popular will. At every stage, and under all circumstances, the essence of the struggle is to equalize opportunity, destroy privilege, and give to the life and citizenship of every individual the highest possible value both to himself and to the commonwealth……
      “No man should receive a dollar unless that dollar has been fairly earned. Every dollar received should represent a dollar?s worth of service rendered?not gambling in stocks, but service rendered. The really big fortune, the swollen fortune, by the mere fact of its size, acquires qualities which differentiate it in kind as well as in degree from what is possessed by men of relatively small means. Therefore, I believe in a graduated income tax on big fortunes, and in another tax which is far more easily collected and far more effective, a graduated inheritance tax on big fortunes, properly safeguarded against evasion, and increasing rapidly in amount with the size of the estate.”–Theodore Roosevelt

        Doesn’t this just make it even more smirk-worthy that he would vote for TR just to annoy Erik?

    (And no, you there in the back, THEY TASTE SO GOOD WITH BUTTER is not a good answer. It’s too over the top. Something more on point, please. Although I’m glad you’re thinking outside the box; that always bodes well for standardized tests.)

    Holy balls, Kris Overstreet is still around?

    I remember arguing with him about fanfiction nigh on twelve years ago. I think I still have his 100,000 word+ Bubblegum Crisis erotica on my hard drive somewhere. Man, that spawned some memes still in use amongst the grognards I hang out with.

    • Hogan

      100,000 word+ Bubblegum Crisis erotica

      Should I feel good about myself that I understand this?

      • heckblazer

        Since I also understand it, I will say yes.

      • Heron

        Given the subject matter of that show, I’d imagine Bubblegum Crisis erotica can get real freaky real fast.

        On the other hand though, full-body trans-human kink powersuits. That’s really all that needs to be said.

        • Murc

          Bubblegum Pink was rather infamous back in the day.

          Keep in mind this was way, way, WAY back in the dawn of online fanfiction. Before fanfiction.net or livejournal, even before newsgroups that were entirely dedicated to the stuff. It was possible to read ALL the fanfiction that was online at one point.

          Kris was what one might call an early adopter.

    • Heron

      Still around and, if the heavily censored nature of his Deviantart account are any indication, just as randy as ever.

      • I’m on dA. Do I want to know this guy?

        My guess is “no,” but now I’m morbidly curious.

        • SEK

          vacuumslayer, could you send me an email?

        • Heron

          He’s redneckgaijin. Knock yourself out :p

        • Kris Overstreet

          On the whole, I’d guess not: I’m not an artist myself, and most of the erotica I write these days focuses on a couple of very specific kinks.

          You have some wonderfully executed work, though.

    • Kris Overstreet

      Thanks; it’s nice to know that there’s still at least one person on the Internet blaming me for their impure thoughts. }:-{D

      • Murc

        Damn you, Overstreet!

        (Also you need to hook back up with Hutchins and write some more UF. Day of Infamy may have been retconned, but it was the last truly great space battle-centric story in that canon.)

        (And nobody else but me will have any idea what I’m talking about.)

  • Heron

    I started another one under Romney Smirk on quickmeme yesterday that’s gotten a few entries since then if anyone wants to check them out.

  • e.a.foster

    I loved the pics with the comments! so true, so true. How American voters can believe this man has anything in common with them is beyond me. He doesn’t like most of you & he doesn’t care about you or your problems.

  • tomstickler

    It is a mistake to trivialize this pair of photos taken at the same event. In the first photo, Mitt is trying to look seriously serious as he blames Obama for always appeasing terrorists, then in the second, cannot suppress his smirk, perhaps thinking “Nailed it!”

    This recalls the occasion almost exactly eleven years earlier, when Dubya stood on that pile of Ground Zero rubble, and also could not suppress a smirk, perhaps thinking “I have hit the trifecta!”

    It was a “vile occasion” both times and should always remain so in our memories. Never let such occasions become a source of trivial amusement.

    • Kris Overstreet

      On the other hand, the mockery ensures that the visuals, at least, won’t be forgotten like almost every other transient campaign moment ever.

        Oh, I didn’t catch the reference.

        • SEK

          I still don’t catch the reference, and I prefer Aaron’s more succinct version. Why am I wrong?

          • Jameson Quinn

            Krusty the clown, bribed by Burns. I think the reference is captured by “bigger house” and so I still like Aaron’s version better.

          • MattT

            The reference is to Krusty’s explanation for voting for “A Burns for All Seasons” in the Springfield film festival.

  • SEK

    Will mock up the Best of the Best tomorrow morning and post them up. There’s no reason this can’t become a daily thing.

    (Also, no Breaking Bad post tonight. Stupid show ended up being too damn clever and I had to scrap my argument. So, tomorrow on that too.)

    • Hogan

      This is the best thing ever, so no worries.

      • Heron

        If we really want this to have any kind of impact though we need to post it up other places as well. So if anybody happens to be in a likely reddit or other aggregator thread in the future try throwing up a few Romney Wins images.

          As I’ve said, people who know how to do so need to do so … or ask their children how to do so, or nieces and nephews. I’ve been told this should be turned into a tumblr, but I barely even know what that means.

          • Cody

            I’m not sure we’re prepared for the gymnastics of Tumblr. We should probably start stretching now, just in case.
