And that would be a Mitt Romney plush head in the Walmart claw game.
Suggestion to the GOP: Run this Mitt. The robot is shorting out on the regular. The doll is less likely to say shit necessitating a hurricane of mea culpas weeklybecause it is physically incapable of talking! No more awkward comments about 47% of Americans! This plush head can’t wish it were Latino. And if it sees a group of black people, it WON’T ask, “Who let the dogs out?”
Even if it takes a whole roll of quarters to fetch it, I bet running the doll is cheaper than running Romneybot — and it’s a hell of a lot more animated. Additionally, if the doll becomes frustrating, you can just stuff it into a gym bag versus the whole apology/humanizing media tour y’all have been embarking upon since, well, every other choice for the GOP nomination was eliminated.
