Well, you know, Kit, if the Onion publishes it, it must be so!

Thanks for posting this!

lol. Funny as it seems, it is probably true. We haven't seen any truth or integrity coming from him yet.

That was hilarious! With the bullpuckey we've seen spewing from the GOP spin-press, the Onion is closer to truth than parody.

You bet, Cal. The Onion News, like Jon Stewart would never mock our politics.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Roseann or Barbara K because you have done so within the last week.
Seems my Green Star bucket is empty - sorry.

Another from The Onion -

"Obama said he hopes to rally voters behind causes like holding teachers accountable for student performances "while remembering tenure provisions that protect terrible educators from getting fired'.

Be damned, the Teachers' Union!

Sometimes The Onion says truths as jokes. Only the educated reader will pick up on this.

Oh, really? And when do we get to SEE the "deeply principled" side?

Does Mrs. Romney have a stick in her back with a handle?

What a pair the romney"s. which ever way the wind or conversation is going they will hop on the band wagon and ride. I guess we'll get a video of her laughing her way to the bank on this one, on how she got over.
I don't believe anything principled about this pair. The romney's with their liars club. go figure.

Just what this website needs, refs from The Onion! I think too many members will actually believe what they read!

Yes Mitt is very principled. He loves money and power and will do anything to get more even though he has enough of both so that he can no longer make a substantial improvement in his living condition. Ray Charles said it, "You can only eat one meal at a time and you can only live in one house at a time. No matter how many you own." Mitt may give some money to the Mormons but he worships only money and there is no limit seen so far to what he will do to get more. THE ONLY CONSISTENT THING IS HIS MONEY GOD!

The Repugnant Party sinks to new lows: their candidate is a nice guy to his family, but screw the voters,. And, his wife is proud of him!

Oops, this was an Onion an interview. Unfortunately, with the Repugnant Party one cannot tell the difference.

LOL. Thanks Cal, read and laughingly noted. Thought at first it was going to be a serious article but then I saw the logo "The Onion".

I am sure Mr. Plastic has some sort of a personality hidden in some deep dark recess draped in cobwebs and other icky stuff. From what I have seen so far-he is clueless about how to treat animals, can't spell, flip flops constantly (Did they name the shoes after him? If that is true, now I know why they fall apart under stress.) and just strikes me as a spoiled brat totally out of touch with regular people. So happy to hear he is nice to someone. Have to love the Onion.

As the saying goes, "There has to be a lot of good in him. None of it ever comes out."

That's what makes this SO funny - that 'Mitt" could have any principled side after all we've seen so far, is honestly laughable.
