2012 was not one of our finest moments. Some of us spent the better part of that year assuming the world was coming to an end. Some of us funneled that paranoia into actually paying money to see Roland Emmerich's laughably bad though succinctly titled 2012. Others funneled that paranoia into the hapless task of letting a total charlatan like Mitt Romney think he actually stood a chance at one day sleeping in the White House. GTFO, 2012. GTFO.
However, a woman in Arizona bested even the staunchest Mitt Romney supporters by running over her husband with an SUV because he didn't vote in the 2012 presidential election. Reportedly, the woman feared that her family would "face hardship" underneath a second Obama term and decided that fracturing her husband's pelvis would surely prove that point. Though the 31-year-old woman originally claimed a bafflingly confident status of innocence in the face of aggravated assault and disorderly conduct charges, she has since changed her tune. On Tuesday, the Mesa resident attended a change-of-plea hearing and her sentencing is now set for May 21.
There's a great Mitt Romney joke in this story somewhere, but I'll leave it in 2012.
