Mad men and daddy issues

      At the AP Annual Luncheon on Tuesday, President Obama was still joking about his open mic tit-for-tat with Russia’s president last week when the two were in South Korea.
    Not to be outdone, Mitt Romney had a rehearsed open mic moment of his own on a radio program in Wisconsin last week that fell equally as flat.
    Mitt told the listening audience that he was going to tell a funny story (first mistake.) The levity Mitt promised turned out to be a story about his daddy George, who was head of American Motors in the 1950s, moved a company from Michigan to Wisconsin, putting 4,300 people out of work.
    Have you stopped laughing yet? Wait, that’s not the punchline. This is: Turns out dad got all red in the face when there was a parade in his honor in his beloved Michigan and the band didn’t know the Wolverine fight song and instead played “On Wisconsin.”
    Alright, you can stop rolling around the floor with laughter.
    Romney humor. The only time he laughs is when it’s all the way to the bank.
    The firing gene doesn’t fall far from the trees that are just the right height in Michigan. Guess Mitt got carried away with trying his hand at humor after coming off a “Tonight Show” appearance the night before.
    Unintentional humor seems to, uh, dog Mitt. His wife Ann, she of the two Cadillacs, is the latest proponent. Monday, Mrs. Mitt was on a radio show (here we go again) and the host asked her why her husband seemed so detached from everyday people, and why he was so stiff and robotic and pretty much lacking a personality.
    Without missing a beat, Mrs. Mitt said, jokingly, “I guess we better unzip him and let the real Mitt Romney out.”
     Isn’t that what got Bill Clinton into trouble?
    Ann Romney is Mitt’s “secret weapon.” That’s the term female anchors and pundits on cable TV news networks call every wife of a presidential candidate. Gives them the image as a more powerful force than they really are in getting their hubbies elected.
    Nowadays women are portrayed in strong roles, as opposed to where they were, say, in the 1960s.
    Which brings us to the Emmy-winning drama series “Mad Men,” which takes place in that era.
    On Sunday’s show, a character in the series, who is supposed to be an advisor to Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, delivered a dig against Mitt’s daddy George. He tells someone on the phone to keep his candidate out of Michigan because “Romney is a clown.”
    An ironic inside joke that links the past to the present, or a liberal Hollywood dig at  the current Romney on the verge of becoming the Republican presidential nominee in line to take on their candidate, Barack Obama?
    Obviously the latter, although the former is poetic license, no matter if those would argue it’s a license, like George Romney himself, that has expired.
    The “Mad Men” zinger caught the attention of Mitt’s son Tagg (Tagg?) who Tweeted on Monday that dad is fair game but “lay off granpa.”
    You know, if Tagg (Tagg?) ever decided to run for political office, he has a built in campaign slogan at the ready: “Tagg, you’re it!”
    That one might not pass the muster with Don Draper, but some of the more hip ad execs on “Mad Men” might dig it.
