Love this description of RMoney by Ana Marie Cox - "a Roomba caught in a corner"

More fully, "He seems at an existential dead-end; a Roomba caught in a corner."

This is a pretty good article - http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/sep/19/mitt-romney-almost-human-haplessness

Mitt Romney's almost human haplessness

The GOP effort to flip the narrative about the fundraiser video is doomed. Romney's flaws would be tragic if he weren't so rich


"The Republicans' most coherent complaint about the now-infamous "Mitt Romney fundraiser video" is that there are two minutes missing from it. This is apparently a thing, now, as they say on the internet. On Legal Insurrection, one of the first blogs to seize upon the lacuna, a writer posited:

"Maybe in the fullness of the answer, the answer was less 'inelegant' than it appears."

This theory is instructive in two ways. First, to describe Romney's statements as "inelegant" implies a slip on par with using the wrong fork. I'd liken it more to farting at a christening, except that what Romney said was applauded by those in attendance. Or perhaps his performance was a little like telling a racist joke and then finding out a black person has overheard you.

OK, it was a lot like that.

1. That Roomba is not going to worry about 47% of the floor

Actually a Roomba is more likeable than Romney.

If this doesn't sum up his campaign - I don't know what does!
