Mitt Romney is a liar. That’s what we’ve learned this presidential election. Mitt will say anything. Mitt will do anything. The man has no conscience.
That’s politics, you might think. But the bullshit’s gotten a little extreme, don’t you think? Accusing Obama of apologizing for America, that’s pretty bad. Charging the president with outsourcing jobs, preposterous. Saying the Affordable Care Act will worsen the debt, an outright falsehood. It’s all in a day’s work for Romney.
Check the number of followers, then watch as it increases by a hundred or so every time you reload the page. If you look at all these followers, they seem to have major trouble with spelling simple English words, have names that sometimes seem to be random assortments of syllables, and have no (or very few) followers themselves.
At the current rate, he’s adding about 10,000 followers every hour.
Charles is right, it’s made up. We’ve seen this before – Newt Gingrich bought his account. His fragile ego couldn’t stand having less than a million followers, so he made a few hundred thousand up.
I guess Mitt’s got the same problem. Team Romney are pouring thousands of bogus followers into the candidate’s account. How can you tell? You check who Mitt’s ‘followers’ are following. You’d need a far more sophisticated program than the Romney people are capable of producing or buying to generate a web of followers that aren’t laughably synthesized. The names aren’t even plausible. They’re barely English. Covalent Purposive, Automat Souffle, Shaven Colloidal, Sediment Corroborate, Niagra Influent, Anaheim Sandman, Fifteen Alfresco, Declaim Deluxe, Synoptic Servicemen, and Hardware Wheeze all follow the former governor. Yes, the Romney group are that stupid.
It gets worse. Mitt’s supposed followers are conspicuously young, black and foul-mouthed. The young women are especially free-wheeling and sassy. A sampling of 250 of Romney’s Twitter fans will get you about 10 ‘fuck’s and 7 ‘nigga’s in followers’ self-descriptions. An equivalent sampling of Obama’s followers will get you maybe one of each. We are to believe that the people who need to read Romney’s Twitter feed are 10 times more ‘urban’ than Obama’s.
It’s too obvious what’s going on. Mitt Romney is a big hit with African Americans. This must be the case as those folk, you may well know, struggle with talking, typing or tweeting in sentences. This is patently insulting and hilarious good news for the Republican. One hundred ‘ethnic’ followers later, I have yet to find one that doesn’t appear to be manufactured. For your perusal, a few of Mittens’ fans:
Note the other Twitter accounts ‘Ginevra’ is following:
Look up a second young woman, and a pattern emerges.
The charade goes on and on . .
These ‘people’ are a fresh bunch, don’t you think? They’re full of a certain type of attitude, one apparently missing from the Romney campaign. It’s a shame that Mitt simply doesn’t have the courage to court these ‘voters’ in real life. I suppose it’s just safer to keep them in a computer.
