On Sunday during a speech in Israel, Mitt Romney up and insulted Palestine, claiming that Israel’s economic superiority over Palestine was due to Israel’s culture, and certainly not the fact that Israel has been oppressing Palestine since forever ago.
Then on Tuesday morning, he went on FOXNews and pretended like he hadn’t said what everyone heard him say, claiming that he “did not speak about the Palestinian culture or the decisions made in their economy” and that he “certainly [doesn’t] intend to address that during my campaign.”
Everyone was like, “Dude, you totally said that shit about Palestine the other day.” And Romney was like, “No I didn’t. I have know idea what you’re talking about. I didn’t say shit.” And everyone was like, “Yes-huh.” And he was all, “Nuh-uh,” and just for a moment, everyone considered setting themselves on fire and ending it all.
Then on Tuesday night, Romney posts an op-ed for the douchebags over at National Review Online, in which he claims that he totally was making a point about Palestinian culture and the decisions made in their economy, actually, and why are you pretending that he didn’t say what everyone knows he said; and also, why is the shit that he said, but then didn’t say, but now totally said so controversial anyway? What’s the big deal?
