I don't think I have mentioned* how personally hilarious I find Romney's statements about his Mexican ancestry: "My dad as you probably know was the governor of Michigan and was head of a car company. But he was born in Mexico. and uh, had he been born of uh, Mexican parents, I'd have a better shot at winning this thing."

Because my grandfather was born in Mexico of Mexican parents, but not of "uh, Mexican" parents. And of course I am from Michigan.

This is about all I have in common with Mitt Romney.



* Probably b/c I try to avoid, as much as possible, national electioneering talk. Among other things, engaging with such topics tends to make me feel like a tiny pawn with fingerprints all over my head, if you know what I mean. IOW, I don't do it for the same reason that I don't wear sweatshirts with corporate ads or logos taking up billboard space on my chest.

My favorite comment was from "Alas, A Blog" - "if history teaches us anything, it’s that white people are seldom elected President compared to other races."
