How can Mitch Daniels announce that he's running for President when he's got 16 stitches in his big bulbous forehead?

"Indiana Republican governor Mitch Daniels was hit in the forehead by a swinging door after concluding a workout Friday afternoon, prompting an injury that required 16 stitches."

Prompting an injury. What the hell happened? Was another human being involved, did the inanimate object — the door — lose control, or did he do some crazy-ass slapstick with the door? Whatever... you can't run for President with a Frankenstein head.

At least Chris Christie never has to worry about being injured during a workout.

It's always the wife. Just sayn'

You're pretty hard on the guy, Ann. What gives? Are men with grande foreheads to be added to the list of "men in shorts?"

Mitch's got some solid creds, grace notwithstanding.

Trooper York said...

I mean getting hurt while he was working out. Ssssuuurrreeeee!!!!!

edutcher said...

Apparently this isn't Daniels' first go at being the new Gerald Ford.

And the RINOs see this guy as their great White Anglo-Saxon Protestant Hope?

Palladian said...

Is this like when former Justice Souter got roughed up while "jogging" in the park at night?

Daniels should use it to his advantage. Contrast it with the elbow Obama took to the mouth playing basketball (or is that racist?).

While the injury required a lot of stitches [twelve], a senior administration official says that was not an indication of its severity. "The Medical Unit used a smaller filament which increases the number of stitches but makes a tighter stitch and results in a smaller scar," the official said.

Daniels should say, "What a pussy, look at this cool-ass scar on my head."

Trooper York said...

This is presents us with a cationary tale.

We have to be sure that President Obama doesn't get injured when the door hits him in the ass on his way out in 2012.

Trooper York said...

You know a lot of those doors are racist.

MarkG said...

He's in the phase of prominence where he's always distracted with greeting and talking and doesn't need to worry about doors. Except when he does.

Stitch with Mitch!

The real criteria used by the Professor in determining which presidential candidate to support, revealed at last.

The whole "fetishizing Obama" thing finally makes a weird, sorry sort of sense, actually.

Trooper York said...

Seriously if Mitt showed up with all those stitches everybody would have thought his wife did it.

The just wouldn't know which one did it.

My money is on Nicki.

Wait a minute. Kerry did it.

nevadabob said...

Nobody's going to see the stitches because Mitch Daniels isn't tall enough for anyone to see his head over a podium.

Barney Frank had a heart attack "working out" at a Gay Gym in Boston.

Club Cafe. I am serious.

QUOTED, actually. ;)

If Mitt shows up with all those stiches, his wife DID do it.

Trooper York said...

Buy which one. I would believe it if you said Barb or Nicki but I don't thing Margene is like that.

nevadabob said...

"Barney Frank had a heart attack "working out" at a Gay Gym in Boston."

Is there a non-gay gym in Boston? Doesn't really narrow it down for us, Titus.

And look, don't fucking tease us you homo. If Barney Frank isn't FUCKING DEAD, we don't need any announcements getting our hopes up.

Titus said...

The gym is in the Club Cafe Complex.

It was called Metropolitan (I know how gay) but I think the name has changed.

This happened in the early 90's with Barn.

nevadabob said...

Mitch Daniels could blow Barney Frank without even bowing his head.

nevadabob said...

" ... you can't run for President with a Frankenstein head."

Bullshit.

Maybe you can't WIN with a Frankenstein head, but you can run.

Hillary proved that.

Yeah, what the hell happened? I mean, WHAT THE HELL HEPPENED? Gosh! Maybe the door didn't move at all. Maybe he just inexplicably RAMMED his head into the door, like a mad BULL!! Yeah, that's it. He RAMMED his head into the door like a mad BULL!! Or something ...

Blonde hippiedom (or hippie blondedom) personified. Rather than learn the facts and then comment, she flies off into hysterics. Very professorial.

Well, don't just stand there, Rosebud. DO something! Fetch a wet towel for her head, and a pillow for her feet. And then whip up one of your homemade gourmet pizza thingies. Put some truffles on it. And pour her a glass of Chardonnay. It's so nice to have a man around the house....

"Yeah, what the hell happened?"

I heard Ron Paul bitch-slapped his little ass in an unpublicized Repub debate throw-down.

Never go against the gold, baby.

nevadabob said...

"Gosh! Maybe the door didn't move at all. Maybe he just inexplicably RAMMED his head into the door,"

I wonder if his mommy will let him go back to that awful gym.

Or run for president.

nevadabob said...

Seriously though, how much of a fucking pussy do you have to be to let your wife decide whether you can run for president or not?

A wife who left you to go fuck some random cock for a few years.

And then ... THEN ... when she came begging back, you didn't even have the balls to tell her to go fuck herself. No, you're too pussy-whipped for that. Even after she's had her pussy stretched out by who knows how many dudes.

You know, with all due respect, my sincere hope is that Mitch Daniels doesn't injure his vagina at the gym.

He could say: "I you liked Zombieland and Walking Dead, you might dig my candidancy."

Terrye said...

This kind of reminds me of Obama getting smacked in the mouth when he was playing basketball not all that long ago.

16 stitches is a lot and on the forehead there would be a lot of blood.

He probably just walked right into it or something. I stubbed my little toe a couple of days ago and it looks like an elephant stepped on my foot. I think the toe is broken. It is amazing how one minute you can be just fine, and the next you are howling in pain.

Happens to us all.

Who says that the only people who like Daniels are RINO? He has a 75% approval rating here in Indiana. I doubt they are all RINOs.

And the whole Rino hunting thing is getting tedious anyway.

I don't think that asking your wife is she wants to be first lady makes a guy a pussy.

This is the guy who criticizes CO2 zealots then sponsors a $2.7 billion coal gasification project in Rockport, IN and a $2.6 billion pipeline -- not for syn-gas but for transporting CO2 for sequestration in oil wells. Yep, this so-called AGW denier and budget hawk somehow doesn't understand that syn-gas is nearly twice as expensive as shale natural gas until at least 2039.

Hello, Mitch -- listen to your critics!

“We need to call this what it is,” said Zac Elliot, statewide organizer for the Citizens Action Coalition. “They want to use carbon to yield more carbon and call it sequestration. That’s ridiculous. They’re trying to turn carbon into a commodity, to pipe it around the country and make a lot of money off it.”

There are damned few Conservatives that trust the guy.

And it's the RINOs are pushing him now that Romney is self-destructing.

PS As for tedious, some of us want somebody who wants to beat Little Zero, not find the most gracious way he can lose.

rcocean said...

How much money is Mitch paying Terrye? And just because Indiana likes him - AT THIS PARTICULAR MOMENT - means nothing.

Instead of running Dick Lugar's former assistant, why don't we just nominate Dick Lugar - I bet Indiana loves him too.

mccullough said...

If someone can point to someone who is a more accomplished fiscal conservative than Daniels, then I'd be happy to support that person. It's nice to see people like Paul Ryan finally embrace fiscal conservatism after he cast all those votes to expand government during the W years. Ryan's conversion to fiscal conservatism seems genuine, but who are these Conservatives people support for President? And what are their records, as opposed to their rhetoric, to support this?

I think Daniels isn't running, so all this discussion is moot!

It's unrealistic to expect a politician to be more conservative/liberal then his constituents. Fact is Ryan has gotten more conservative as his district in response to the ballooning deficits.

That pic is DeNiro's Frankenstein's monster. He was my favorite Frankenstein, although his performance in that role is not much talked about.

"Is this an office or an enlisted man?"

"Governor."

"Make the stitches REALLY small."

nevadabob said...

Mitch Daniels' mom said today he can't run for president so he backed out of the race.

Oh well.

"... the whole Rino hunting thing is getting tedious anyway."

Mitch Daniels raised income taxes to balance the Indiana budget shortfall.

That's RINO. He acts and legislates exactly the same way that a Democrat would act and legislate. That's why he is a RINO.

On the plus side, he was able to steal Republican campaign donations to get elected as a Democrat mole.

That took some doing.

RINO.

'Prompting' an injury conjures visions of a deliberate act.

This is just bad writing. Replace 'prompting' with 'resulting in'.

Phil 3:14 said...

Boy I'm trying figure this out. Romney too much looks the part and Daniels doesn't look at all the part.

We're a hard crowd to please. Maybe zombie Reagan IS the only viable candidate

Deep thoughts from Nevada Boob

Not all Republicans were in the posse comitatus-Paul Ryan school. Nixon era taxes were much higher than they are now. Reagan himself kept taxes at 50% until '86.
