I liked it better when the robot was a black Trans-Am driven by David Hasselhoff.
This looks awesome. I love documentaries about politicians (of whichever side) after the fact. It's fascinating to see what kinds of people would voluntarily subject themselves to our fucked up political process.
Some are just as slimy as you might expect. (Gingrich, for example, is everything you would hope for.) Others are just misguided. Either way, it's always interesting.

Rafalca cured Anne's MS, surely their dressage horse can mend Mitt's broken heart.
I can't hate Mitt Romney any more than I can hate a door or a rug. He is an inanimate object. He belongs in the Museum of Automata.
That said, this trailer is a riot.
"The Flipping Mormon"--he should have just put that on all of his campaign materials.
Seriously, though, I know a lot of Mormons (including one of my best and closest friends), and Mitt Romney is the Mormoniest Mormon ever. The problem is, there's just something about Mormons--their body language, tone of voice, etc.--that's just really creepy. Even creepier than fundies. I think a lot of people who didn't even know his position on the issues didn't like him because he just came off as creepy, in an uncanny valley kind of way.

I know we're at that point where Romney, no longer a menace to our everythings, is more an object of pity than scorn, but counterpoint: Fuck this guy. During the campaign, I read a billion articles in all the fancypants New Daily Atlantic Economist Hey Could You Pay Us 8 Dollars For This Article Even Though It's More Than You Would've Paid In Fucking 1998 Even Though We Won't Shut Up About The Death Of Print magazines that attempted to humanize Romney. I never saw it. At best, he came off as a human being that would toss a nickel at a dying child if right in front of him, and sure, if you were bleeding out on his property he'd call 9/11, but that's it.
The problem with being "sympathetic" to lifelong millionaire assholes is that their success would mean sympathizing with a lot more people than a lot worse problems. Romney would have, against his own conscience, repealed Obamacare and immediately took away insurance from millions of people, derailed the entire cause of health care reform, most likely re-ensnared us in conflict with Iran, and God knows what else.
It takes a tremendous sense of entitlement to think you deserve to be President. Call me naive, but I've always felt that Obama, whatever his flaw, sincerely believes what he does is for the best of his country. Romney problem does too, but I'd wager dollars to donuts his daddy issues loom far larger.

Old black lady sitting across from me on the bus, October 2012, to resounding applause from fellow passengers: "Mitch Rombley, he is no good!"
Joe Don Baker is : MITT!
He's a flop!

I would love to see a 20mph car chase through some dirt road in Southern California where Mitt's motorcade chases Obama's motorcade.
And what would he drink instead of Schlitz?
I'm still perplexed as to how he got the voice of a morning zoo crew DJ without sucking down three packs of Pall Malls per day. I'm guessing that isn't in the documentary.

May be interesting. Part of me feels sorry for Mitt, but then I remember just how incredibly out of touch with reality he is.
