A fish out of water

 The Romney campaign would have you believe all that was missing was an orchestra performing Aaron Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man.” But that’s not the impression the visuals gave when Mitt “Man of the People” Romney had a staged sit down with hard-working working-class Republicans at a picnic table somewhere in the great state of Pennsylvania.
     The “extremely conservative” was extremely uncomfortable and clearly out of his element. You could believe he needed to have an interpreter present.
     He even knocked the cookies put on the picnic table. If you get a chance, look at the video and notice the face Romney makes when he sees the cookies. It’s as if someone offered him road kill.
     So What was the objective? Possibly to create a new political image. Something like, “Mitt Romney is the kind of guy you’d like to have a glass of lemonade with.”
     Things going through Mitt Romney’s head when he was pretending to listen to the commoners:
     1. “Now I know how Seamus felt when he was strapped to the roof of my car.”
     2. “I’d rather be firing someone. Hmmm… if I was running against me, that would be an ideal bumper sticker for Democrats to say should be on my car…”
     3. “Chim-chimeny-chim-chimeny-chim-chim-cheree….”
     4. “The guy to the right of me looks like he’s going to ask me for money.”
     5. “Don’t poo-poo the cookies. Don’t poo-poo the cookies. I can’t stop myself, I’ve got to poo-poo the cookies.”
     6. “And they wonder why I’m not concerned about the very poor.”
     7. “That woman is mentally undressing me. Wait, so is the guy sitting next to her.”
     8. “I want bunny rabbits on my bib! I want bunny rabbits on my bib!”
     9. “I’d feel more comfortable if these people were corporations.”
     10. “Where’s an etch-a-sketch when you need one?”
