Mitt Romney Went "Sam Jackson" On Rick Perry Last Night

Did you see that awkward moment at the CNN Western Republican Debate last night?  You know the one where Romney put his hand on Perry’s shoulder?  I don’t care what you think about either one of these two men, that moment was intense.  Anyway, when I was watching it, I was reminded of the great 90’s movie “Pulp Fiction”.  In particular, I thought about the part where Samuel Jackson tells the kid to “say ‘what’ one more time”.  If you’ve seen the movie, you know what part I’m thinking about.

 

I put together a clip that sums up what was running through my head as I watched Perry and Romney square off.  I’ve edited the profanity out, except for the “B” word.  So, as the editors of this site have recommended, I’m warning that the “B” word and other light profanity is present.  Depending on your employer, the following clip may not be safe for work.

 

Let us know your thoughts on that moment in the comments below.  Did you think that Romney and Perry were going to duke it out?  And do you even think it’s professional for men who want to lead the free world to behave like this?  Tell us what you think in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter.

  • Darn straight I thought Perry was going to knock him on his rear end Ai ! Very nice analogy with the Pulp Fiction scene too. That part of the debate had me wondering if we will need some of the old WWF wrestling referees in future debates. Wanna bet those two will have someone in between them on the stage next time?
