Workers face a likely return to the Oppressive Conditions of Yore under the rule of Lord Mitt of Romney. Despite his Vast Wealth, Lord Mitt yearns for the one thing that has eluded him: the Brass Ring of Control, whereby millions of decent, hardworking folks would have to bend to his will, and pledge allegiance not to their country, but to this insufferable overlord (who by the way would still want more and more).
Convinced of his Inevitability, Lord Mitt is now asking members of his party to sign loyalty pledges or risk ostracism from the Proceedings in Tampa. Lord Mitt himself, of course, will sign just about anything, knowing in what passes for his heart that he can always repudiate it later. The Truth is an elusive concept in the Land of Mitt; his years in the Corporate Tower have enabled him to prevaricate with ease, making shit up as needed in order to pander to the audience du jour. Anyone expecting to redeem one of Lord Mitt's pledges will find it as worthless as a Sarah Palin commitment to appear at a speaking event.
