Congratulations to the Romneybot

Romneybot 2.0 managed to get over 50% of the vote for the first time in any Republican primary. Of course, one of those states is the state he was formerly governor of, and one of them he was the only major candidate on the ballot, meaning that he really managed over 50% only in two states -- Idaho and Wyoming -- where the sheep outnumber the human beings, but hey. It's still better than he's ever done, there's actually two states where the majority of Republicans like him!

This is a great day for robot-Americans. Just sayin' ;).

  1. As a former resident of Idaho, I'm pretty sure they don't have more sheep than people. I never saw any sheep. Rattlesnakes, yes. Also bears. But no sheep, and damn few people.

    What is the robot population?


  3. I always pictured the Romneybot as more like Geoff on Graig Ferguson's show. A blue eyed charmer with great hair.:)

  4. The Romney is not charming. The Romney actually is rather mechanical and calculating, the "charm" algorithm was apparently outsourced to the lowest bidder in India which has not yet managed to deliver running code.

  5. I've lived in Wyoming and it isn't sheep that outnumber the people. It's a toss up between elk and buffalo.

    I don't know, but some of those Mormons do give off kind of a soulless automaton vibe.
