"Governor Romney, you've just had what some are calling the worst week in presidential campaign history, smirking at the death of American diplomats, presiding over a blame-fest of a campaign and insulting half the American electorate.

"What are you going to do now?"

Typically after such a question, the celebrity will shout joyously, "I'm going to Disney World!"

Mr. Romney, as you might have guessed by now, isn't that smart.

How do you top (or bottom) a week like this? How about hooking up with the least-popular president in US history and a few gazillionaire pals? At his house?

The Romney road show is dark today, though the campaign is launching a new ad in which a mother welcomes her newborn baby into the world by cooing its share of the national debt as a kind of libertarian lullaby. The candidate himself, however, will not be seen--maybe later in clandestine videos--as he will be huddling once more with his well-heeled pals at a fundraiser in Salt Lake City.

And maybe elsewhere...  USAToday reports only that Mr. Romney's ever-lovely wife Ann will be present, but AP suggests that the Mittstake himself will be at a fundraiser at...

George W. Bush's house.

Count degrees of separation if you wish--it's Laura's gig and Junior won't be there, maybe not even Mitt, etc.--but is this really the best day to hitch your wagon to America's least-loved president? Isn't there some Reagan relative willing to host a fundie today? Hell, could he not just go to Reagan airport and shake hands?

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.
