Romney is a clown.

I misread this as Lucille Ball and was disappointed. Still, pretty funny.

You think a guy in a $7,000 suit would have time to put words in Lucille Bluth's mouth??? Come on!!!!!

The answer, I have found, is that a lot of people have to read a couple pages before they realize those aren't actual Lucille quotes. Because of how absolutely perfect they fit.

I mean, it's one banana, Barack. What could it cost, ten dollars?

Yep. Knew it before I clicked.

Windmill-powered car is another of my favorites.

Mitt: Oh, please. They didn’t sneak into this country to be your friends.

I need someone to work this new gem in because I rolled my eyes when reading it, and they got stuck that way.

I've been thinking lately- I really want to see Mitt Romney photoshopped in a raccoon coat and straw boater. In my mind he is now pretty much inseparable from a rich 1920s buffoon of some sort.

I spent much too much time trying to figure out what bits they were referencing.

Leave Mittney alone! Just bring him peace and calm, because he is overwhelmed! By airplane windows!

To stave off my disappointment, I made a Lucille Ball/Mitt pic.

Clearly Romney falls into the "down wind faster than the wind is impossible" camp. No word yet on his stance on the "airplane on a giant conveyor belt" issue.

As yet another who read it as Lucille Ball at first glance, I thank you.

With the windows open, or closed?

I read this on a plane and felt so faint I wished I could open the windows to get some air.

I found that it's get to a point that it stops being funny and just gets so depressing.

If passing a sixth grade general science test was a requirement for holding the office of president, neither Bush, Palin or Romney would qualify.

And I think I am serious.

Mitt Romney should really take some classes or something so he can learn to do a method acting as a character who doesn't have so much money he can't help but own a fucking horse that dances.

Oh, that's how we joke. She doesn't even have a house.

Yet 47% or more of the voters will pick Romney at the ballot box. WTF america?

I had to keep reminding myself it was Mitt speaking. I've been watching a lot of Arrested Development lately and I kept thinking " wait which episo...right mitt....whoa. That is uncanny"

Wait wait, new contender for Best Evar.

And now her voice is in my head anytime I read something Romney says. It's like a judo-flip Farnsworth Effect. Good news, everyone! I've managed to lower my tax rate into the imaginary numbers!

I would give Mitt a pass on the airplane window thing. His wife had a close call on a plane, which filled with smoke, and it could have turned out a lot worse.

This time (and only this time) I feel like he was just talking from a place of worry and upset about what Ann when through.

No really.

not quite. unintentional comedy is goldener.

I have never watched Arrested Development (I know, I know), but I have watched Archer, and they all work pretty well if I imagine her as the live-action Mallory Archer.

Lucille Bluth and Mallory Archer are basically the exact same character with different jobs.
posted by griphus at 1:45 PM on September 25, 2012


Actually Mallory is slightly more warm and likable.

Slightly.

Lucille is more abstractly evil. Malory is, yeah, more human.

You're not too far off though.

I find it interesting that Jessica Walter is apparently the sweetest person ever, given how superlative she is at playing cold, heartless monsters.

If you wonder if you're have enough introspection about emotions to play a psychopath, you're not a psychopath.
