So far, the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan ticket has managed to ignore or alienate the active duty military, Latinos, organized labor, women, educators, marriage equality advocates, supporters of the Affordable Care Act, Medicare recipients, pollsters, those without medical coverage, the mainstream media and fixed-income seniors.
Then Romney called 47 percent of all Americans moochers.
I predict that after the televised debates the Romney campaign will resemble a Monty Python skit. Picture, if you will, Romney and Ryan, dressed as knights, storming the White House astride imaginary horses. Behind them is Ann Romney, banging coconut halves together to imitate the sound of clopping hooves. Behind her ... no one.
