Mitt Romney may be the most painfully awkward, incapable-of-not-being-a-dick person on the planet. And every time, every single time, he tries to do something "normal" to show how "normal" he is, it is so cringe-worthy you almost have to feel sorry for him. He's even a dick, according to his own son Tagg, when his family gathers for supposedly normal family time:

CHRIS WALLACE: So, Tagg, what are family meals like?

TAGG ROMNEY: A little bit of craziness. Dad always goes in line first because he doesn't want to wait for all the grand children because it takes forever. Parents are cutting their meat and he's usually finished by the time the rest of us sit down.

This is what passes for family time in the Romney home? Mitt has to cut in front of everyone because golly, he sure doesn't want to have to wait for anyone else, especially not those annoying little grandchildren, and he sits down and eats and is all done by the time the rest of the family joins him, and that's a "family meal"?

And all of this—Chris Wallace joining the whole Romney clan at one of their many vacation homes—is yet another attempt to show us how just-a-regular-guy-who-loves-his-family Mitt is and that, contrary to popular belief, he is capable of actual human emotions. Not unlike the recent interview with Parade magazine in which Ann and Mitt tried really hard to prove Mitt is not a robot, but instead, we learned that he cries when he donates money to charity.

Wow. What a guy. What a dad. What a grandpa. What a dick.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
