One More Time Mitt Flair.

I feel like I’m really, really late to this thing—but I honestly never knew about the Mitt Romney-themed Olympic pins.  I knew, vaguely, about the Olympic pins from 2002 being manufactured in China, despite many of them having a patriotic American theme, but that’s almost a cliche, right?

But Mitt Romney’s likeness appears on Olympic pins. Huh.

Apparently, this was a thing:

Critic Ken Bullock has them in his Olympic pin collection.

“We have Valentine’s ones with all the Olympic mascots around saying, ‘We love you, Mitt,’ ” Bullock says, as he pulls up images of the pins on his computer.

“We have him pulling a sled of some sort where some of the mascots are saying, ‘Are we there yet, Mitt?’ ”

Ken Bullock scoffs at what he calls “the Superman” pin, which features Romney “with a Clark Kent chin,” wrapped in an American flag.

“I don’t know how to put words to describe how narcissistic they are,” Bullock says.Three Olympic pin collectors and experts consulted by NPR say they’ve never seen pins like these featuring the CEO of an Olympic organizing committee.

I have honestly nothing else to say about that.

the above is the sound of words failing me

Holy fucking shit.

Also, the post title? Fuckin’ brilliant.

Wow, seriously?

I’ve met a lot of people who are fucking full of themselves, but jesus fuck Mitt takes the cake.

“Clark Kent chin”?  That sweeping forelock, that jutting jaw—it’s .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)!

But yeah, WTF.

Li’l Abner is as may be, but none of them look remotely like Mitt. Weird.

Fackin’ taste, how does it work?

I think I kinda love these. Just imagine the thought process involved here: “I’m going to be the most famous guy in America for being the guy way back in the background trying to raise money for the Olympics. I’m gonna get to go to Hollywood parties. I better make a bunch of buttons with cartoon characters talking about how much they love me, ‘cause EVERYONE WILL WANT ONE.”

The last decade of his life was all built on the idea that there were no limits for him, because cartoon rabbits and bears said they loved him.

OMG, Vixen, you saw this one coming.  Check out the latest: Romney outsourced the US Olympic team uniforms to China!!!1! -olympics-outsourced-uniforms-burma_n_1677791.html

UPDATE:  Even worse—Burma

Love the Committee’s response back when people first reacted to it:

The torch relay clothes were NOT made in Burma. They were manufactured in Myanmar,” the organizing committee responded. “In fact they were made in the exact same factory that produces clothes for GAP, North Face and other major clothing labels.

Good grief.

You mean to tell me that people actually paid their hard-earned money to buy this tacky Mitt-pr0n?  Wow.
