Mitt Romney had an early morning rally in Michigan yesterday, one of his many “home” states and one he is almost certain to lose — possibly badly. But the 2,000 people the campaign says showed up (so you can guess that half were photoshopped in) heard Mitt make a rare truthful statement:

“It’s made me strive to be more worthy of the support I have received across the country and to campaign as I would govern, to speak for the aspirations of all Americans, not just some Americans.”

He wants to campaign and govern the same way?

So just doing what FoxNews tells him then?

Well, I guess it couldn’t be worse than what I would expect — I guess because that is exactly what I’d expect.




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 .
