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.

  1. “You will love my innovative public works proposals…number one will be to put my face up on Rushmore.”

  2. No matter what I come up with for the first picture, the second one always says “Suckers.”

  3. Dirk Gently says:

    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!

  4. vacuumslayer says:

    *applause, applause* More, more!

  5. vacuumslayer says:

    I FEEL YOUR PAIN

    AND I ENJOY THE FEELING

  6. Malaclypse says:

    I DON’T REALLY CARE WHAT YOU TELL YOUR ADOPTED DAUGHTER.

    THOSE LOG CABIN REPUBLICANS WILL FALL FOR PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING.

  7. Malaclypse says:

    OF COURSE I PAID TAXES

    JUST NOT FEDERAL INCOME TAXES

  8. Cody says:

    I WOULD VOTE FOR THEODORE ROOSEVELT.

    JUST TO MAKE ERIK MAD.

      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

  9. c u n d gulag says:

    This is a test of my new “CONCERNED I.M.” programming.

    Damn! Too short. Time to go back and delete the “SMIRK” over-ride!

  10. Stephen Frug says:

    I’d really love to see someone combine this with the CTU strike — the first line something alone the lines of I CARE ABOUT CHICAGO’S KIDS. But I can’t come up with a good second line. Anyone?

    (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.)

  11. Snarki, child of Loki says:

    … they’re a fitting all-purpose figure for the intellectual dishonesty that makes Romney such a despicable human being.

    I was with you, right up to the last two words.

  12. vacuumslayer says:

    SEK’s gonna regret this thread when it’s 300 posts of people Internet-yelling.

  13. Cheap Wino says:

    I PUT AMERICA ABOVE MYSELF

    JUST LIKE THE FAMILY DOG

  14. Cody says:

    How about if we apply some Kanye West to the situation?

    MONEY ISN’T EVERYTHING
    HAVING IT IS

  15. I COOKED FOR FORTY PEOPLE

    LITTLE STUTTER THERE

  16. olexicon says:

    I SAID LOOK BITCH I’M RICK JAMES

    IT’S A CELEBRATION!

  17. Smokey says:

    The caption for the first picture can be pretty much anything, as long as the caption for #2 is:

    RELEASE THE HOUNDS!

  18. SEK says:

    SEK needs to finish his Breaking Bad post. He’ll be back in a few hours. In the meantime, anyone else with the privileges required to update the post is welcome to do so.

  19. MY FELLOW AMERICANS . . .

    . . . PFFT, THEY WISH.

  20. vacuumslayer says:

    FOLKS, IM HERE TO DISCUSS SERIOUS ISSUES, NOT RAFALCA’S PERFORMANCE

    YOU FOOLS! RAFALCA DINES ON SOYLENT GREEN!

    Too comic booky?

  21. Malaclypse says:

    JUST LIKE YOU, I PUT MY PANTS ON ONE LEG AT A TIME

    UNLIKE YOU, GOD PERSONALLY DESIGNED MY UNDERWEAR

  22. Malaclypse says:

    NOTHING IS AS IMPORTANT AS EDUCATION

    AND YOU MORONS ARE ABOUT TO VOTE FOR SOMEONE WHO THINKS KOBOL IS A REAL PLACE

  23. Timb says:

    I HEAR DEMOCRATS HATE PAMCKES

    COME NOVEMBER 6TH, THEY WILL BE WAIST DEEP IN PANCAKES

    What? Too LGM specific

  24. Malaclypse says:

    PEOPLE ARE AMERICA’S GREATEST ASSET

    AND IF I KNOW HOW TO DO ANYTHING, I KNOW HOW TO SELL OFF ASSETS

  25. Jameson Quinn says:

    I think there should be some historical ones. You know:

    ROME IS BURNING
    WHERE’S MY VIOLIN?

    Or:

    MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE
    MMM… CAKE

    Or:

    I CALL UPON ALL TO STOP THESE TERRORISTS
    NOW WATCH THIS DRIVE

    I’m sure others can do better in this direction

  26. Jameson Quinn says:

    OBAMA CAUSED A DOUBLE DIP RECESSION AND ENCOURAGES TERRORISTS
    SO I CAN FIRE YOU WHILE I FIRE YOU

    or other meme crossovers…

  27. Malaclypse says:

    I’M CONCERNED FOR THE FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY

    THAT’S WHY I KEEP MY MONEY IN SWITZERLAND – THOSE FUCKERS KNOW HOW TO WEATHER A CRISIS.

  28. Jameson Quinn says:

    AS IF MILLIONS CALLED OUT IN TERROR AND WERE SUDDENLY SILENCED
    FULLY OPERATIONAL

  29. rbcoover says:

    THIS LOSS OF AMERICAN LIVES IS TRAGIC

    WISH IT’D HAPPENED BEFORE THE CONVENTION

  30. Malaclypse says:

    OBAMA WOULD GIVE OUR TECHNOLOGY TO IRAN

    WHILE I WOULD JUST SELL IT AT A PROFIT.

  31. thusbloggedanderson says:

    I NEITHER SMOKE NOR DRINK

    BECAUSE NOTHING GETS YA HIGH LIKE MONEY

  32. max says:

    I believe Marx is appropriate here:

    IF YOU CAN FAKE SINCERITY

    YOU’VE GOT IT MADE

    max
    ['Groucho Marx, that is.']

  33. Jameson Quinn says:

    TAXES ARE TOO HIGH

    ON SUCKERS WHO PAY THEM

  34. Jameson Quinn says:

    WE NEED MORE COPS ON THE BEAT

    TIME TO GET MY FAKE UNIFORM

  35. THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM IS CRAZY

    HA HA THEY EAT STAMPS

  36. Bill Murray says:

    And that’s my path to prosperity

    It’s not a lie if you believe it

  37. Jameson Quinn says:

    GOVERNMENT SPENDING NEEDS A HAIRCUT

    LIKE THAT FAGGOT BACK IN HIGH SCHOOL

  38. Murc says:

    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.

  39. Heron says:

    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.

  40. e.a.foster says:

    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.

  41. tomstickler says:

    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.

  42. Manju says:

    VOTER ID LAWS STOP VOTER FRAUD

    NO ONE’S EVER ASKED TO SEE MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE

  43. MattT says:

    Let’s just say the suffering of workers moved me.

    TO A BIGGER HOUSE.

  44. SEK says:

    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.)

  45. Jameson Quinn says:

    AMERICA CAN’T AFFORD THIS SPENDING

    BUT I CAN

  46. Jameson Quinn says:

    THE GOVERNMENT GIVES YOUR MONEY TO LAZY URBANS

    LIKE ME

  47. laura says:

    What a douchebag. All this talk about how sad Americans are and how they grieve for the diplomats who lost their lives and then, the first question, he attacks the people inside the embassy for “apologizing” while under attack!

  48. laura says:

    “A SEVERE MISCALCULATION BY THE ADMINISTRATION”

    *WHEW. FINALLY!*
