    with a really stylish fashion sense, so it's all good, right?

    I'd bet a lot of money that this is precisely what will convince a not insignificant percentage of swing voters to vote for Romney--swing voters being not terribly bright or politically engaged, by and large, and not likely to be swayed by let alone understand these sorts of "OMG my brain is hurting" sorts of accusations.

    And, really, what other kinds of voters would we be targeting with this type of information, however damning it clearly is?

    Hopefully, they're not all this dumb, detached, or indifferent. Because Romney is a really, really unsuitable choice as president. Talk about putting the fox in charge of the hen house (not to mention all that saving daddy's good name and winning his love and respect while proving that he's better than him nonsense that certain kinds of insecure and unself-aware men feel the need to engage in).

        Who hasn't had an original thought her entire life, like most other GOP Stepford Wives who are programmed and forced to put on an act for their man's benefit. Mitt and Ann are right out of the set of Mad Men. But a lot of Americans still prefer that sort of image, having themselves been programmed to prefer it. None of them were going to vote for Obama, though, so it's a wash. It's swing voters who fall for this act that we need to worry about.
