The eternal battle for the title of Supreme Clueless One continues.
Current titleholder: Ann “I know what it’s like to struggle even though I’ve never worked a day in my life, know I’ll never have to work a day in my life, and know that I’ll never get any closer to being hungry than Wanda Sykes will get to being head of the Mormon church” Romney.
“Look, I know what it’s like to struggle,” Ann Romney insisted, possibly referring to her battle with multiple sclerosis. “And if maybe I haven’t struggled as much financially as some people have, I can tell you and promise you that I’ve had struggles in my life.["]
The title often is held by some member of the Romney family – but, the irony here is that this statement was a pathetic attempt at a snark against someone who also occasionally holds the title: Hilary Rosen
“She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing,” Rosen charged
I hereby declare the title to be jointly held by Rosen and Romney.

That’s actually ALEC.
ALEC would like you to swallow this:
Ron Scheberle, Executive Director of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) issued the following statement today in response to the coordinated and well-funded intimidation campaign against corporate members of the organization:
ALEC is an organization that supports pro-growth, pro-jobs policies and the vigorous exchange of ideas between the public and private sector to develop state based solutions. Today, we find ourselves the focus of a well-funded, expertly coordinated intimidation campaign.
Our members join ALEC because we connect state legislators with other state legislators and with job-creators in their states. They join because we support pro-business policies that promote innovation and spur local and national competitiveness. They’re ALEC members because they’re more interested in solutions than rhetoric.
For years, ALEC has partnered with legislators to research and develop better, more effective public policies – legislation that creates a more transparent, accountable government, policies that place a priority on free enterprise and consumer choice, and tax policies that are fair, simple and that spur the kind of competiveness that puts Americans back to work.
At a time when job creation, real solutions and improved dialogue among political leaders is needed most, ALEC’s mission has never been more important. This is why we are redoubling our commitment to these essential priorities. We are not and will not be defined by ideological special interests who would like to eliminate discourse that leads to economic vitality, jobs and fiscal stability for the states.
…which will choke off your oxygen supply enough to cause you to forget about this:
It ain’t just ‘business’.
And it never was.

There are these twins:
And now there are these twins:
