This is merely a straightforward "you should read this" post. Like so many others, I'm plagued by the "what IS it about Mitt Romney, anyway?" question, and also like many others, I simply shrug and feel well enough informed to hold a reasonably consistent opinion about him. Finally, though, Jonathan Chait has published a short summary of Romney's character in New York Magazine which is so brilliantly concise yet such a thorough description of the candidate that it should immediately be stapled to every telephone pole in the country.
That's all! It's just really good.
