Rmoney is not a nice man... [View all]

The Romney Olympics is not a joke, but in fact a for-real documented-by-witnesses official thing, and it will take place this week as the Romney family vacations at their New Hampshire home. Further, the incident in which Romney tripped his daughter-in-law so he'd beat her in the triathlon is not urban legend, but something multiple members of the Romney family have spoken publicly about. What is odd about Romney's cheating in a family sports tournament isn't that he cheats -- we all played kickball against that kid, right? -- but that his family thinks his cheating is a charming quirk. The triathlon is no longer a main event in the Romney Olympics, The Washington Post's Philip Rucker reports. After the tripping incident, Romney "expanded the games to give himself a better shot."

Rucker didn't have to dig too much to find out about the time Romney tripped the mother of his grandchild, because Craig Romney told the story in Iowa as if it would make people more likely to vote for his dad for president.

CRAIG ROMNEY: ...And it was down to my wife and my dad over here.

ROMNEY: I tripped her.
