Mizz Snarkity Snark brings you this late-breaking midnight snark snack courtsey of – wait for it (no, it’s not Romney) – Associated Press, who reported sometime earlier today in Cleveland that:

CLEVELAND (AP) — Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says he may be defeated by President Barack Obama in Tuesday’s presidential contest, but it’s doubtful.

Speaking at an Ohio rally Sunday afternoon, Romney said that it’s possible, but not likely that Obama will win. He was responding to supporters who booed when he speculated on the consequences of an Obama second term.

There. A direct quote from the top of the article found trending on Yahoo a few minutes ago by MSS, who paused long enough to giggle before clipping it carefully for the bird cage lining stack — which is strange only insomuch as MSS does not have a bird.

Now, seeing as how this is merely a snark snack, MSS will not delay to overthink this win win reportage, except to note that the headline under which this was published on Yahoo reads:

Romney: ‘It’s possible’ Obama could win

Dear Associated Press: Are we having a Wishful Thinking moment? Have you not about the concept of self-fulfilling prophecy? Here were two chances to get the point across – one neutral to the cause, and one softly nudging the fact that Romney is not running unopposed, out in the sleepy eyes of a Daylight-savings-time redacted nation.

And you chose the not-neutral one.

For this, dear Associated Press, an institution I both respect and admire, you receive the much-vaunted, always desired “WTF Were You Thinking!?” Award for Sunday, Nov. 4.

MSS will be glad to have the award engraved – please specify if you wish it personalized to “Miss Associated” or to “Mr. Press.”

Much love to each of you. Every single sleep-deprived one of you. Seriously. And please forgive MSS’ lack of use and, forsooth, even understanding of the much-vaunted AP Style. MSS is writing this Gangnam Style.
