Tribal Council

Adding insult to injury, it is the unanimous decision of the entire SLB staff that the Mittster, Mitt Romney gets the boot from the virtual island of Left Blogistan. His decision to leave the race after spending untold sums is his own, his booting is ours. This was part of his parting shot, and the reason he is this week's guest of honor:


"First," he said, "I have to put something in context." He said, "America is unique in the history of the world. In the history of the world," he said, "whenever there's been conflict, the nation that wins takes land from the nation that loses. One nation in history, and this during the last century, laid down hundreds of thousands of lives and took no land: no land from Germany, no land from Korea, no land from Japan. America," he said, "is unique in the sacrifice it has made for liberty, for itself and for freedom-loving people around the world."

Umm, Governor, limiting the timeline to the last century is a little disingenuous, no? Extending the timeframe a bit, it is possible that Mexicans and native Americans might take exception to your statement, Governor. But then there's that American exceptionalism. It's kind of like having a get out of jail free card. Everything is justified. All is forgiven.

Farewell, Governor. The tribe has spoken.
