Michigan: where the trees are 'the right height' [View all]

Trees and lakes and cars, oh my! This was too bizarre. He just wants everyone to love him!


Michigan: where the trees are 'the right height'

The clip has been making the rounds -- we aired an excerpt on last night's show -- but for those who still haven't seen it, Josh Marshall argues the video "has been scientifically proven to be the best Mitt video in history."

For those who can't watch clips online, here's Mitt Romney, speaking in Michigan, trying to explain why he loves the state:

"A little history -- I was born and raised here. I love the state. It seems right here. Trees are the right height.

"I like -- I like seeing the lakes. I love the lakes. Something very special here. The Great Lakes but also all the little inland lakes that dot the parts of Michigan.

"I love cars. I don't know -- I mean, I grew up totally in love with cars.... I love cars. I love American cars."

There was apparently some glitch in Romney's programming during that appearance, but I've been assured the campaign tech team has given the candidate a full diagnostic.

As for why Michigan trees "are the right height" -- unlike those other rascally states, where the trees are either too tall or too short -- I'm yet to see someone explain what on earth Romney was talking about.
