Great Moments of Political Self-Embarrassment

Mitt Romney probably thought he was being brave yesterday when he went out and greeted people at a King Day parade. But all that comes to mind is "wow, that sure is painful to watch".

I wouldn’t say it’s a "macaca" moment for him, because to give him some credit, I think his heart was probably in the right, or at least the benignly opportunistic, place. But still…wow.

I hereby nominate this to the "Embarrassing Hall of Fame", some of the prior winners:

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
