I was recently contemplating Mitt Romney's plastic, father-knows-best demeanour, and it occurred to me that he really rocks a J.R. "Bob" Dobbs vibe. Dobbs, the figurehead and alleged founder of the Church of the Subgenius, usually sports a pipe. But issue Mitt a pipe, and I think you have a good candidate for the Dobbs character in any planned biopic.
I googled the two names, and discovered that I am not the first to make this connection. Below is an image I lifted from humboldtdave on cheezburger.com:
About this blog:
What if they held a class war and nobody noticed? For decades, liberals and progressives have been bashed for conducting a "class war" every time they suggest that it would be appropriate for the extremely wealthy to shoulder a bit more of the burden of paying for government. Meanwhile, a swarm of far-right think-tanks and political action committees have been working tirelessly to promote the idea that taxes on the wealthy should be lowered further from their historic lows, and that entitlement programs such as social security and medicare are too expensive to sustain (and in any case, immoral). The latest attempts to delegitimize public employee unions are the logical next step in what genuinely appears to be the systematic dismantlement of the middle class. This blog will highlight some of the more extreme examples of this activity that may not always show up in your news feeds.
