Looking forward to the first post-debate pic with Obama as a Vulcan and Mitt as a Ferengi.

Nah, Romney isn't a Ferengi.

Mitt Romney is more Captain Jellico, the guy nobody likes, who comes in and makes the tough discussions and saves the day.

Jellico Romney would have Deanna put on a proper uniform,
Ferengi Romney would insist Deanna walk around naked.

Like I said, the guy nobody likes.

Agree.

I'd say, there are times when Ferengi have hew-mons down. Observe:

Re: Mitt Romney is a Ferengi

Meh. The Ferengi's in the right, this time, brother.

Still, as I've often pointed out, Ferenginar's actually got big government oversight, as the FCA would tell you, with their by-laws--or the Nagus, who hands out opportunites like synthehol in the Gamma Quadrant. Or the standard Ferengi contract....

Nonetheless...Quark was on to something, noting how the income tax goes against the spirit of free enterprise. One wonders if it was Ishka's idea, or the Congress of Economic Meddlers and their desire to mold the favors system their way.

Ferengi-Romney campaigns in Southern California.

There's nothing wrong with acquiring profit.

Look, I don't know how you people live, but all of us corporeal,
linear whatever's have certain things in common,
and one of those things is the need to improve ourselves.

Our ambition
to improve ourselves motivates everything we do.

Without ambition
without, dare I say it, greed, people would lie around all day doing nothing.
They wouldn't work,
they wouldn't bathe,
they wouldn't even eat.
They'd starve to death.

Is that what you want?

I think it works best with Mitt's words (in quotations) over the top of photos of actual Ferengi.
Yeah, that would be funnier. but "They can't quit, they're holograms" did make me smile.
