A Dead Campaign

But what beats the band in all of this is that the lifeless Romney campaign is still given a "puncher's chance" of throwing a lucky punch and knocking out the incumbent, who has so far committed no unforced errors such as Romney has done.

In this contest, former Massachusetts Gov. Romney is as a zombie, unable to be killed, because like a vampire, his campaign is already dead. As in mythology, the only way to permanently dispose of a vampire is to drive a wooden stake through his heart.

So now, the presidential debates are Mitt's last, best hope for overtaking President Obama's otherwise seemingly insurmountable lead.

Yet if Gov. Romney is held accountable for only revealing two years worth of tax returns, for example, will his support erode even further?

In the tax returns he's released his vulture capitalistic ways have been revealed, such as only divesting stock in a Chinese government oil company, and other Chinese properties just last year, while he scolds the president - all of whose investments are in U.S. Treasury Bonds and domestic American companies - for not getting tough enough with China over trade policy.

On top of all his other numerous and readily apparent flaws, Gov. Romney is also clearly a hypocrite who will say anything to knock out the president.

A hypocritical vampire, I might add, who will only go away on Dec. 9 - not Nov. 6 Election Day - the day the Electoral College officially chooses the winner of the 2012 presidential race. On second thought, we might have to wait until Jan. 20, 2013, Inauguration Day, to know that a wooden stake has in fact been driven through the heart of the un-dead, vampire presidential campaign of Willard Thurston Howell Mitt Romney, the millionaire.
