Fly Jolly Joker Airlines

Opening windows on an airplane, ROFLMFAO! Mitt sure is a moran or a jolly joker, depending on your point of view.

Mitt isn’t the world’s best off-the-cuff speaker as his 47% speech shows. Sometimes he speaks first and thinks later. After 2+ years of stumping 18-hours a day, perhaps he was just tired.

In addition to reasonably good “sing along with the radio when no one is in the car” renditions of Motown hits, Obama brings the funny sometimes too. Who doesn’t remember Obama’s joke about your shameful Sheamus episode? Well, um, other than Barry.
