Bowing to The Donald? Probably not Team Mitt's favorite moment of the election so far...
Mitt Romney received an endorsement from a very smug Donald Trump today. It seemed like the perfect time to bust out BuzzFeed's "Smug-O-Meter." And like Spinal Tap's amps, it goes to eleven.
As in "If a gun was held to my face I would rather take the bullet than watch _______ again." Basically, what movie is your "Do it to Julia!" moment? And if you don't get that reference, get out of this thread.
The former Supreme Court Justice made a comment about Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. Zing.
"There are some things you just can't imagine happening in your life," jokes Romney. "This is one of them."
87-year-old Hans Feldmeier received this can of pig fat as a student in 1948 in Germany as part of the post-war US aid program. For some reason, he kept it all this time, and here's what it looks like now.
"Of course we have to do our homework," says an aide.
Seyfried also swears she'd never date Justin Timberlake. Well now she's just a liar. This and other stories that flew under the Buzzfeed radar await your clicking pleasure.
A long courtship.
Quico Canseco takes the hardest line.
The Superbowl is today! What are you waiting for!? Click the links under the pictures for recipes.
I don't see how this man can lose.
Campaign points out that Trump has also given money to Harry Reid: "Hopefully, media reports of this event will include this delicious irony," the camp writes.
Reports of the site's downtime are sporadic, but the irony is constant and delicious.
OMFG! That is all.
Mitt Romney keeps attributing a quote to Thomas Paine, despite the fact that scholars of Paine's work have denied his authorship. So here's a collection of other quotes Thomas Paine didn't say, just in case the Romney camp was considering putting them in speeches.
Mmmmm, space donuts. The Dark Lord of the Sith might take exception to this graffiti but it's for a good cause. Each of the helmets will be auctioned off for charity starting February 7th.
"My net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney," Romney endorser said. We're not sure that's true.
Haha. Good one, internet.
BuzzFeed's own Amy Sly has put together this informative chart on 2011 Super Pac spending.
Can't tell if actually upset, or elaborate Super Bowl lead-up ruse. Bill seems convinced that Priceline wouldn't dare kill him off.
Trig Palin and Bella Santorum are central to their parents' political identities.
Wishful thinking? Or does he know something we don't? The guy's got sources. UPDATE: But the AP says it's Newt.
Obama's SuperPAC needs billionaires. The IPO is about to make some.
The Gingrich campaign is preparing to challenge the current rules of Florida's winner-take-all primary. Citing a December 21st memo from RNC Chairman Reince Priebus saying winner-take-all states are not allowed to hold a caucus or primary before April 1, 2012, the Gingrich campaign will demand the delegates be states delegates be divided proportionally.
