22. The Romney campaign is calling this an outlier

However, the candidate just recently got up before a crowd and remarked at how "amazing" it is that he can get a sandwich at a Sheetz gas station. He asked the crowd if they ever heard of such a thing where he can just push on what he incorrectly called a "touch-tone keypad" (he meant a touch screen) and his sandwich comes to the counter. Apparently it astounded him that this would be possible without a maitre'd and full waitstaff.

Mitt Romney has proven himself so out of touch with average Americans, he seems almost like an alien who just arrived on Earth and is struggling with our terms and customs, much like the Jeff Bridges character in "Starman". Until recently, he's kept himself mostly to private fundraisers attended by his lofty peers. Romney is self-destructing before the public media, and that will swing polls downward. They call it an "outlier", I call it the beginning of a trend.

His only hope now is to hurry the pick for VP and pray that person can add a sense of humanity to the campaign. Team Romney will have to thrust that candidate into the spotlight to explain Mitt's positions in a language we can understand while Mitt himself handles daily fundraising at the country clubs.

It'll be interesting if that pick is Pawlenty because his speaking skill rivals that of a Disney World animatron. His mouth moves while a droning monologue emanates from the podium, and his limbs move in a distracting pre-programmed sequence unrelated to his words that leaves listeners struggling to recall what he just said.

Please, let it be T-Paw.
