Mouth Breathers III: The Saga Continues

Here's a vid courtesy of Chase Whiteside at New Left Media (whose work I previously posted here) of a cross-section of Romney supporters opening up a little too candidly for the camera at a recent rally in Ohio. Just a reminder, folks: when making your voices heard vis-a-vis the political process, it can be helpful to know exactly what you're for, what you're again, and the whys of each, lest you end up looking like this:

(The woman at 0:55 -- holy yikes!)

I posted this on my Facebook wall last night and took no end of grief from conservative friends whose opinions I respect, so just to be absolutely clear and unambiguous, I don't feel this is in any way representative of all Romney supporters, or even necessarily the majority. I'm also quite sure you can find equally angry-making video of idiotic Obama supporters without too much effort.

Also, as I've said previously, it's not as if an organization labelling itself the 'New Left' is an uninterested third party in all this. But nonetheless, I continue to find it pretty freakin' terrifying just how hateful and proudly ill-informed some of these people are, spitting out the Fox News talking points without even a hint of critical thinking (like the brain donor at 7:25 who thinks Buddhists are trying to take over America).

If ignorance is truly bliss, these should be some of the happiest people on Earth.
