Romney’s Alleged Attacker – Dem Rapper

From the celebrity stalker site TMZ:


Mitt Romney’s Alleged Attacker — Major Rap Star

Posted Feb 19th 2010

The mystery man who was tossed off an airplane for allegedly attacking Mitt Romney has finally been revealed — it was one of the guys from LMFAO … and he claims Romney is the one who got physical first!

It all went down shortly after the two parties boarded a flight from Vancouver to Los Angeles on Monday.

According to a video confessional from LMFAO’s Sky Blu, it all started when he leaned his seat back while the plane was still on the tarmac … and Romney, who was sitting behind him, started yelling at him to put his seat back up.

Sky Blu claims Romney then reached forward and grabbed his shoulder … so he slapped the Presidential wannabeen’s hand away. Shortly after, authorities boarded the plane and escorted Sky Blu off the flight … and the other member of LMFAO got it all on tape.

On Tuesday, Romney’s spokesperson said Sky Blu became "physically violent" when asked to put his seat up … but the spokesperson never mentioned whether or not Romney puts his hands on him.

Sky (a Democrat) says it was an "unfortunate situation" and he’s sure Mitt (a Republican) is a "nice guy" … but not someone he’d vote for.

We rejoice to say that we know nothing about Mr. Blu or his group, LMFAO. Apparently they are ‘electo-hop’ rappers. They reportedly had a single titled ‘I’m in Miami Bitch’ which peaked at #51 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Of course, given that Mr. Sky is a self-admitted Democrat, we are naturally disinclined to believe his account of the incident.

    Nerves can get a little frayed after a hard day of reading journalism describing violent teabagging grannies and granpas.

      That was great Rusty.

      When I worked in Charleston SC at the hospital there, we had blacks there that spoke what is called Gullah. A mixture of African /Caribbean/English that evolved from what we called the island blacks. Blacks that lived isolated for years on the barrier islands off Charleston.

      Sounds very much the same…of course I’m only a cracker. lol

      We never could understand what they were talking about…and they liked it like that.

      Yeah, that was great Rusty!

      (BTW, I’m still laughing over that Homer Simpson cartoon.)

      Who is the white woman at the end of the clip? She looks familiar.

      The woman is Barbara Billingsley, who played the 1950s WASP American mom in ‘Leave it to Beaver’.

      Her bit in that movie was the perfect juxtiposition.

      It was funny wasn’t it. lol

    I bet that the other passengers would tell it a bit differently; particularly when it comes to the parts about “yelling” and “grabbing”.

    I’m disinclined to believe this rapper’s account either, and at my count, it seems like a lot more liberals getting in the news for coming off of their hinges lately.

    Its rather ridiculous to think Romney got verbally or physically violent. So add me to those who don’t believe a word from this ditz….

    However….I wouldn’t have blamed him if he did. Have you ever sat behind some idiot who thinks his is the only comfort that matters on an airplane?

    The distance between seats now leaves NO room for the person up front to get all snuggly and laid back. The person in the back is sentenced to having the front person in his lap the whole flight…That would make anyone testy. Forget about eating or watching the screen in the back of the seats.

    On top of it all…This plane was still on the ground? Isn’t the seat supposed to remain in the “upright” position when you are on the ground? Oh, I forgot…he’s a Dem…and that means he gets to live by a whole ‘nother set of rules. To h*** with anyone else…he’s “entitled”!

    “I’m in Miami Bitch.”

    Wow. Is America a great country or what?! That hit must rank right up there with “The Flower Duet” by Charlotte Church.

    I suppose I could make a wisecrack about how Mitt should have calmly explained to Mr. Sky Blu how his old man George Romney fought tooth-and-nail for integrated seating on public transportation. And fought to move public housing projects into white suburbs. While he marched arm-in-arm with The Rev. St. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through the streets of Detroit, and yadda, yadda, yadda. But I won’t.

    And I suppose I might quote the Reverend Jeremiah Alvesta Wright, Jr. about chickens coming home to roost. But I won’t.

    Instead, I’ll leave Mitt to immerse himself in “I’m in Miami Bitch” on his Air Canada headphones, while I politely say goodbye, “Con Te Partiro” with a little help from Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli.

      Mitt handled the situation all wrong. A 3oz bottle of water would not have constituted water-boarding the head in his lap.

    I don’t beleive the rapper’s story.

    “Sky Blu claims Romney then reached forward and grabbed his shoulder … so he slapped the Presidential wannabeen’s hand away. Shortly after, authorities boarded the plane and escorted Sky Blu off the flight … and the other member of LMFAO got it all on tape.”

    I’m pretty sure if the “tape” showed Romney loosing his cool in any way it would have been all over CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, Utube etc. etc. by now. .
