A Guilty Pleasure

For some time now, Daily Kos has been running a regular feature called “The Chronicles of Mitt“. There have been lots of attempts to match Private Eye’s famous and oft-imitated Dear Bill letters but this may be the one to do it. The Dear Bill letters purported to be gin-soaked remonstrances from the UK’s Dennis Thacher, then the Prime Ministerial husband, to his best drinking buddy. They were hilarious.

The Chronicles of Mitt is a little different. I take it to be the log of an android-like entity writing to… well, I’m not quite sure to whom. Each begins, “Hello, human diary. It is I again, Mitt Romney, your better.” To his lesser half? I don’t care who they’re to: They are funny.

Take today’s — not exceptional, just averagely good, and the last line — wait for it — still wrested an evil chuckle from my gut: The Chronicles of Mitt: July 23, 2012. I know, I should be better than that.

    Why do people who have no sense of humor still insist on telling people when something is funny?

    Seriously, explain to all of us WHAT exactly is funny about any of that? The biting political satyre of “I’m going to meet … my horse?” Really? I bet you can’t explain how that’s funny. I like a good joke as much as the next guy, but that didn’t even look like it was trying.

    Tell a great joke here and prove I’m wrong:
