Lyme Loonies Convince Romney Campaign To Fall In Line

By Loudoun Insider

Good grief this is ridiculous.  More hysteria about this “massive epidemic” with medical advice from “Dr.” Farris.

“Mitt, I’m telling you, this is the way to win elections in northern Virginia!”


  • Loudoun Moron says:

    I can’t quite decide if that is Farris genuinely trying to help Romney in NoVa, or if he is using Romney to help legitimize his “War on Lyme disease” in LoCo.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Cooch, Farris, and similar wingnuts are not really looking to help Romney. They would rather have Obama around to help keep the ire stirred than have a RINO like Romney in the White House. All the better to help the Cooch for President movement.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Blue Virginia chimes in on this – this is simply crazy whacked out stuff, about what you would expect from Farris and company. I’m still waiting for info on where long term antibiotic use is prescribed in the Bible, since that is the only book we need to answer any and every question.

    LI, I am glad you caught this. It was on the Sunday morning talk shows. I laughed when Donna Brazile was rolling her eyes at the Romney flyer, which Stephanopoulos was holding up. She said something like, “I hear some local small time activist mentioned Lyme on Romney’s bus as it went through VA. Convinced someone on the Romney campaign it was a way to win votes.” sic eyesroll

    Then Gov Haley chimed in and used the Lyme flyer as an example of Romney playing small ball. One of the reasons Haley thinks Romney is behind.

    I actually must give credit to Loudoun Moron for putting the Weekly Standard link up in comments, which caused me to do this post. This is absolutely ridiculous, and just another example of how inept the Romney campaign is. I didn’t catch any of the Sunday shows -if you can find a clip, post it here and I’ll add it into the post as well.

    The sheer brilliance of this strategy is simply beyond the understanding of mere mortals. The boys in Boston have this all under control. The Romney campaign is a wonder to behold. I know I’m enjoying the hell out of it.

    I wonder if exit polling will measure the number of votes that turned on Lyme disease. I’m pretty sure that Rmoney has a lock on the voting block that gives more weight to Lyme disease than to the economy or the wars or foreign policy or any of that other less significant stuff. Maybe he should mention Lyme disease in one of the “zingers” that he is preparing for Wednesday’s debate. With his sense of timing and his delivery it could no doubt turn the election his way.

    I’m telling you: stink bugs are an untapped reservoir of votes.

    I don’t mean stink bugs can vote, by the way. I just mean if you go tick — you need to also go stink.

    It worked for Higgins.

  • Dan says:

    Even better than ticks or stink bugs is the advice that Rmoney just got via Twitter from that giant of the Republican intelligentsia, Donald Trump (who may be part of the stink bug demographic). The Donald advises Rmoney to go birther with his zingers and talk about the birth certificate during the debate. I can’t begin to express how very much I’d love to see Rmoney follow that nitwit’s advice. What could possibly go wrong?

  • Elder Berry says:

    The idea that Farris could persuade the Romney campaign to send out a major mailer on this, just amazing.

    Anyone who still wants Romney elected ought to think of the consequences if he “runs this country” (in Ann’s words) like he runs his campaign. Although I guess if the party has seized on one virtually nonexistent problem (voter fraud) for this election it might as well seize on another, too.
