Chuck Lorre Issues Biting, Anti-Romney Vanity Card

Continuing the last-minute push by industry creatives to chime in on this year’s election, Chuck Lorre posted one of his “vanity cards” to his website slamming Mitt Romney as well as the Republican agenda. The card didn’t appear at the end of “Two and a Half Men,” but Lorre chose to instead post it on the Internet because “I decided to save everybody a lot of unhappiness and not submit this
week’s vanity card to the CBS censors (I know when I’ve crossed the line
with these things and don’t need a bunch of corporate lawyers getting
their cotton blend panties in a bunch).” So, as he says, he censored himself.

An excerpt: “What does it say about us when we think a guy who doesn’t drink,
doesn’t smoke, keeps his money offshore, stubs his toe and says
“H-E-double hockey sticks” and wears magical underwear can feel our
pain? What does it say about us when we demand less government and more
FEMA? What does it say about us when we completely forgot the colossal
shit storm we were in four years ago?

“The answer, my friends, is not blowing in the wind.

“The answer is, ‘We are fucking crazy.'”
