It's a bittersweet moment when you realize how the real world works…
A former senior adviser to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign skewered some of the GOP nominee's surrogates Wednesday, saying it was "stunning" how they preened for administration positions when they thought Romney would win but then turned on the candidate as soon as he lost the election…
"I won't mention their names, but they're talking about Romney like he's Reagan. You know, 'The debate performances were the best debate performances of any Republican nominee in presidential history. This guy–he's iconic.' They were talking about him because they believed he was going to win in four or five days," [Romney campaign staff member Dan] Senor said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."… "I mean, it was unbelievable. It was five, six days later, (they were) absolutely eviscerating him," he said.
Say what you will about Mitt Romney, I think it shows a lot of character that he was willing to hire eight-year-olds to his staff. Also, it must have been adorable. I can only imagine how cute Senor must have looked in his little suit, with his little haircut, holding a tiny little cell phone to his ear.
Oh! I wonder if Romney hired any cats! Can you even imagine a bunch of kitties jumping around the campaign bus with itsy bitsy little neckties? (Speaking of which, please, nobody tell Senor the campaign cats weren't actually "playing" with the campaign mice.)
