Making fun of Mitt Romney trying to connect with the common man is like shooting fish in a barrel. Only the fish all have thumbs and are armed with guns that fire underwater, and they're all really excited about shooting one another, so you actually don't have to do any work at all.
It's easy, is what I mean.
Take this latest example, in which Romney addressed the Detroit Economic Club about the strength of American automotives…
"I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck," the candidate said. "Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually."
Laugh if you must. Yes, laugh, sitting there on your seat cushion that probably isn't alpaca, thinking about your car that probably isn't two Cadillacs, imagining Romney's effete, aristocratic lilt as he says actually… actually, that is pretty funny.
Luckily his opponents are Gingrich, Santorum and Paul. Voters might find a creepy, distant humanoid better than three humans if it's those three.
