Comment of the Day: Romney's 47-Percent Gaffe

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning or afternoon from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about Mitt Romney ranting about the 47 percent of Americans who supposedly are doing nothing but sticking their noses in the government rough for all those entitlements the nation's fantastic rich people provide.

One reader was on Mitt's side.

so what? Virtually every word spoke is true. What's the fuss? That he spoke the truth? Didn't garnish his words with the politically correct verbage? No matter, vote for Obama. Enjoy living in a world with a nuclear Iran. With any independent media it would be clear and widely discussed that Obama is simply the worst president in modern history.
