Faking Sincerity (Update1 & 2)

I really wish the Prez would stop breaking out into song like this.

You know what happened last time, when he sung a little Al Green. Willard tried to show us that he is cool, too, and the very next day grabbed a mic and mangled a few verses from  America the Beautiful. Cable couldn’t get enough of it (like the Dean Scream) and fortunately, the gold braided Gucci loafer I tossed at my teevee screen went wide.

I don’t who Romney’s authenticity coach is, but he should be fired. Obviously he hasn’t been able to instill into his pupil George Burns‘ first lesson in acting:

“Sincerity – if you can fake that, you’ve got it made.”

Here’s a clip from yesterday showing Willard sucking up to an audience in Michigan, trying to prove what a regular guy he is. I’ve seen better animatronics at Disneyland.

Seriously, this guy is giving autonomons a bad name.

UPDATE 1  (2/23/12)

Speaking of gynecology, who can forget this classic about OBGYN’s from former President George W. Bush:

Too many OBGYNs aren’t able practice their love with women all across this country

UPDATE 2  (2/26/12)

WAPO’s Alexandra Petri is similarly struck by Willard’s artificiality:

Mitt Romney’s normalcy in artificial environments like GOP debates is only exceeded by his artificiality in normal environments — like, say, Michigan. Some attribute this to the Uncanny Valley — that space that dolls and CGI creations occupy wherein they are just real enough to be unnerving.

Stirring the cosmic paint. Love one another. Make Brotherhood happen. Read The Urantia Book while you are still on Urantia.
