Vince Lombardi once said, "Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser." As we've seen, Mitt Romney is not a good loser. Before his campaign was even cold, he was grinching out about the "gifts" Santa Obama promised voters. (And really, wouldn't a nice card have been more personal than affordable birth control?) Anyway, it's about time Mitt Romney won something.
…And the envelope, please. According to twitter, 2012's top trending topics have Romney soundly beating President Obama. What an upset! This entire time we thought the Obama campaign had all the social media savvy. Romney must be so relieved — his losing streak was beginning to be legendary. Even after the election, he lost the award for Worst Candidate of 2012 to Rick Perry. To add insult to injury, Romney's stirring pep talk this past Saturday surely contributed to boxing legend Manny Pacquiao's first loss in seven years. It's one thing to be a bad loser, but quite another to be a Vegas cooler.
So congratulations Mitt: you're now president of the only place with more opinions than you.
