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.

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