Yesterday, Mitt Romney stood in front of the NAACP and pulled the greatest act of political body-reshaping since Richard Gloucester, aka The Murderous Crook-Back Duke, got the English crown by claiming he had the "form and nobleness" of a rightful, lineal King.

According to the L.A. Times, "Romney stood quietly behind the lectern, smiling at the audience as it voiced disapproval. "I do not have a hidden agenda," he continued. "If you want a president who will make things better in the African American community, you are looking at him." To a scattering of boos and catcalls, the candidate paused and nodded firmly before carrying on with his speech. "You take a look," he said."

Ballsy much? Yes, one could praise Romney for his bold refusal to cave to any P.C.-posturing--to resist being pushed out of the "Representative of the African American" club because an actual African American is actually being representative of it. I get it. No identity politicking here. But, come on. You'll have to  work a little bit harder to shake that rich, white guy image, Mitt. That crap worked on Richard's audience because they were scared he'd kill them. Plus he had a lot more charisma.
