Mitt Romney's Revenge: Mayor Boris Johnson Gets Stuck on Zipline at 2012 Olympics (Video)

| by Alex Groberman

About a week ago, London Mayor Boris Johnson made news for taking this shot at Mitt Romney: "There are some people who are coming from around the world who don't yet know about all the preparations we've done to get London ready in the last seven years. I heard there's a guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know whether we're ready. Are we ready? Yes we are!"

Now, admittedly, Romney sort of brought that on himself – but we still need to stand by our own. The Republican presidential candidate may be a secret robot, weirdly awkward, and terrifyingly ambiguous about what he plans to do with this country if wins a spot at the big boy table, but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s our awkward and weird secret robot.  

In that spirit, it’s our patriotic duty to pass along this video of Mayor Johnson:

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

That would never happen to Mitt Romney. And even if it did, his campaign would just delete all the evidence and refuse to answer questions about it – which is basically the same thing as it never happening.
