You Give Love a Bad Name

According to Drudge, Massachusetts Governor and dark horse Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said the following to 60 Minutes: I must admit, I can't image anything more awful than polygamy.

I get that the guy wants to call potential voter attention away from his Moronism, but really, you can't think of anything more awful than polygamy? Granted, the thought of multiple nagging partners is definitely less pleasant than just the one, but not anything? You know, just off the top of my head, I can think of a few things more awful than polygamy:

Cost of the War in Iraq
(JavaScript Error)

More than 13 million global AIDS deaths (with more than 30 million living afflicted).

Quite personally, I think cancer sucks just a wee bit more than polygamy. But that might just be my singular bias. And then, of course, there are all of the other painful and/or incurable diseases out there that naming them all would take me well on into Alzheimer's, so I'll let you, gentle reader, insert your favorite affliction here.

Poverty in the United States and abroad. Of course, I bet the parents of all these starving kids are just thankful--at least their kids don't have multiple spouses!

School shootings.

Child abuse.

Broken families.

Donald Trump's hair.

Fanaticism, oppression, hatred and ignorance.

I'm sure all of you can easily add to this, the point being, Mitt Romney saying there's nothing more awful than polygamy is bullshit, and if his brain really can't imagine any of these other things then he just might not be the most fit for holding an office.
