Romney, your "Cousin, Twice Removed"

If the candidate were a member of your family, who would he be, Hart asked. Gingrich came first, drawing comparisons to a grandfather, a father, a favorite uncle.

Then came Romney’s turn and far more distant associations: “neighbor,” “cousin” “twice removed.” “Richer than the rest of us, so he wouldn’t come to our events,” said Christine, 38. “The dad who’s never home,” added Chris, 27, and the group’s chief supporter of Ron Paul.

Hart offered another scenario: Imagine the candidate at an airline ticket counter, badly needing to catch a flight. Five people are in line ahead of him, and only one ticket remains. What would the candidate do?

Romney, the group said, would try to buy his way to the front.

2. Newt is a grandfather, a father, a favorite uncle?

 

What a bunch of fucking morons in this group. They probably also want to have a beer with George Bush.

3. Romney's my brother, my brother-in-law, and my cousin

twice removed, as well as my grandfather and my nephew. It takes a rather elaborate flow chart to keep it all straight.
