Mitt Romney Needs Crabbe and Goyle (Newt and Trump)

Chi va dormir con i cani, si leua con i pulici
He that goeth to bedde wyth Dogges, aryseth with fleas
1573 J. Sanforde 

Mitt Romney is in Las Vegas today with Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich.
No, it's true - Via Politico!

One person on Twitter called them the "Triplets of Evil." Others wondered why Romney feels the need to hang around with Gingrich, who did nothing but insult him during the primary, and the other guy who is famous for saying "You're Fired!" and is a self-proclaimed Birther who thinks Obama is Kenyan. Of course, it's clear that hanging around with Romney is about the closest either Trump or Newt are going to get to the White House - and I personally don't think Romney will get there either.

They remind me of wealthy pureblood, Draco Malfoy and his thuggish Slytherin sidekicks, Crabbe and Goyle, from the Harry Potter books.

You would think by now that Romney would be distancing himself from the Republican Clown Posse, but au contraire - he is inviting voters to have dinner with them!

This is a REAL poster - You cannot make this stuff up!

So has Mitt lost his mind? No, there be method in his madness, as he told reporters today:
You know, I don't agree with all the people who support me and my guess is they don't all agree with everything I believe in. But I need to get 50.1 percent or more and I'm appreciative to have the help of a lot of good people.

Aha! He needs friends that will send his campaign "to eleven," as in the Spinal Tap movie! The ends justify the means, and Romney will cozy up with anyone whom he thinks can get those Tea Party members or other goons to go out to vote for him. Always the businessman, eh? Always the bottom line ahead of ethics or common sense.

Here are a few quotes that I think Mr. Romney must have missed during his classical Ivy League education. He was too busy attacking the other lads with scissors, I guess. So, for your inspection, Mr. Romney, think about these quotes while sitting squeezed in between Crabbe and Goyle Newt and Trump:

To take refuge with an inferior is to betray one's self. ~ Publilius Syrus

A King's son is no nobler than his company. ~ Gaelic Proverb

A rusty nail placed near a faithful compass, will sway it from the truth, and wreck the argosy.
~Sir Walter Scott

Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation. It is better be alone than in bad company.
~ George Washington

I won't belong to any organization that would have me as a member.
~ Groucho Marx
