Gentlemen, start yer engines! The race to see how fast Mitt Romney can reverse all of his GOP primary positions has officially commenced. (Perhaps starting with his supposed love of NASCAR.)
How do we know Mitt Romney has switched to general election mode? It appears he now supports this crazy left-wing feminist bill called the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act…
As president, Mitt Romney would not repeal the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which provides women with more legal channels through which to pursue equal pay for equal work, his campaign confirmed on Wednesday.
"Women account for more than 92 percent of jobs lost under Barack Obama," said Amanda Henneberg, a spokeswoman for the former Massachusetts governor's campaign. "Of course Mitt Romney supports pay equity for women. The real question is whether President Obama supports jobs for women."
During a conference call held earlier in the morning, a Romney aide was unable to answer a straightforward question about the former governor's position on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, which Obama signed into law amid heavy Republican opposition.
Equal pay for women? I don't know. That sounds kinds of radical. Next thing you know, women will be asking for affordable health care, education and to not suddenly be pandered to by a candidate who ignored their interests for a year.
Romney's support for the Lilly Ledbetter Act demonstrates that he'll do anything to appeal to women now that the primary's effectively over. Well, anything but wear a pink tie.

It only took him a week, but Mitt Romney has finally found the perfect rebuttal for all those Etch A Sketch comparisons…
Mitt Romney attacked President Obama as "the hide-and-seek president" Wednesday in his first appearance after his primary sweep Tuesday evening…
"President Obama has said that he wants to transform America. I don't want to transform America," Romney said. "I want to restore the values of economic freedom, opportunity and small government that have made this nation the leader it is"…
"He does not want to share his real plans before the election, either with the public or with the press," Romney said. "He is intent on hiding. You and I will have to do the seeking."
"I'm an Etch A Sketch? Oh yeah? Well, you're a… a… a… Hide and Seek! No, I mean, I am rubber and you are glue, and my father shut down the glue factory. So there!"
It's odd that Mitt Romney doesn't want to transform America. Wasn't he one of the robots in Transformers? I guess Romney doesn't need to transform the country. He's too busy transforming all of his opinions.
Here's a tip, Mitt: It's probably a good idea to lay off the kids' game analogies when you're a modern-day version of the Monopoly Man.
