Mormons; the other white dicks.

Just the way he phrases this makes it pretty clear he did do that and he does remember doing it.
That said, if the extent of the dirt that can be dug up on Romney was that he was a shit in high school, I think the media should probably avoid the swift boat approach.
What's really sickening is that the idea of a super-rich-guy born into wealth who behaves like he's got no empathy for anyone, especially if his target isn't also of privilege, gives a lot of the GOP a raging boner.
I think it's a telling part of his personality. And it's far from the only dirt they can dig up from his past. All you have to do is look at his years at Bain Capital to see that he didn't gain empathy or compassion as he aged.
Yeah people can change but it's rare that they're a Joffrey Baratheon as a child and grow up to be a Ned Stark.
Yeah I went there.

"I remember doing it, but it IS pretty funny."
What'd be really funny is if a mob got together and held Romney down while they shaved his ass.
THAT IS A JOKE
DO NOT DO THAT

There really needs to be some kind of harsh punishment for any public figure, politician or celebrity, that makes an "apology" that contains the words "if I."

He could be being honest. That's the cool thing about being a bully. Your "pranks" on other kids are so second nature that you just can't remember doing them.
Us bullied, however, remember too well.
Yeah, one of the guys interviewed in the article claims he ran into the bullied man years later at an airport bar and was told the incident still haunted him to that day.
Binro the Heretic
Even worse, he could be one of those bullies who don't realize they're being bullies. They actually think the victim is in on the "joke" and it's all a bunch of good-natured roughhousing and fraternal antics. It's a weird mixture of self-delusion and vanity.
Years ago, I crossed paths with one of my former tormenters from high school. He acted like we were old pals. I was polite, but not friendly and tried to end the conversation quickly so I could be on my way. He asked if something was wrong with me and I told him I didn't want to be around him because he treated me like shit when we were kids. This seemed to genuinely confuse him.
I told him all the punches, headlocks and loudly greeting me with "Hey, faggot!" in the middle of the cafeteria while he helped himself to part of my lunch were horrible things to do to a kid half his size, but he still seemed confused.
When I walked away, he shouted after me, "You laughed. I remember you laughing and smiling!" I just kept walking. Maybe he was remembering his cronies laughing at his bullshit and over time it became me laughing, too.
There's still a complete lack of empathy in there. It's like the difference between children who enjoy being cruel to a family pet, and those who are cruel simply because they don't think of the animal's well-being. I didn't start this out as a dig at Romney, but I see that kind of happened along the way.
Rodents of Unusual Size
Binro - uh wow, that is psychologically fascinating.
There is either a lack of empathy or he's so unable to process what he did he has to change the memories in order to live with himself.
I'd go with complete lack of empathy, at least in this sort of situation (they might show empathy in other situations but certainly not this one). The guy's having fun, he's provoking laughs, he's experiencing the all-natural high that comes from showing dominance and being praised for it. If there's any voice of empathy in him, it's easy to ignore.
Any contemplation after the fact no doubt trades heavily in denial and rationalization.

Cutting off someone's hair without their consent is assault. I've had really long hair my entire life and I can't count the number of times I've had to tell people that.

Closeting is hilarious, and should be taken lightly.
|Cena_mark - 2012-05-11 |
I'm not fooled by this apology. This is blatant pandering for the Nerd, Geek, Dweeb, and Dork vote.
If by that you mean he's insincere in every way possible, then yes, I agree.

Mitt Romney: Richie Rich as written by Frank Miller.
Which means we're in for massive amount of violence soon.

Romney is the sort of person who would laugh at rape if it was committed by a rich person.
To be fair, I'm pretty sure Greg Haidl's antics are legitimately hilarious if you stop thinking about the victim's suffering.
Sorry, should have spelled that "victims'". I forgot about the mistrial party rape. Holy fuck I hate cops.
Only if it was committed by a rich person against a poor person. They're like dogs that walk upright and wear the most adorable outfits while thinking they're people; anything that happens to them is automatically hilarious, because everything about them is.
Be fair; he would laugh only after the rich person fired the maid.

The victim should kidnape Mitt Romney and do him like the "Lost" episode where that guy captured Sayid and was all, "Tell me you remember her!"
If you like Lost you know what I'm talking about.
Especially now that he's dead.
Wait that would mean a zombie throttling a robot
I am for this!

12 pages! WHEN ENERGY IS AN ISSUE?! How dare they spend valuable printing ink and paper on something like a potential president and his cronies attacking and humiliating someone!

William Zanzinger, who at twenty-four years
Owns a tobacco farm of six hundred acres
With rich wealthy parents who provide and protect him
And high office relations in the politics of Maryland
Reacted to his deed with a shrug of his shoulders
And swear words and sneering, and his tongue it was snarling
In a matter of minutes on bail was out walking
But you who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears
Take the rag away from your face
Now ainít the time for your tears
