What, Exactly, Is A Mitt Romney?

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.

Thanks. I will read.

Thanks for the link. If I were Chait's editor, I would invoke a "death to adjectives" clause, but other than that, I love his argument.

I'm sure most have seen the smirk Romney gives when he says everything he does, like the taxes he pays and how he made his millions or billions, whatever. Yes, everything nice and legal. After reading the article in Rolling Stone, I came away with sense that Romney has the scruples of a crack whore looking for another fix. And actually, that is a slander of crack whores.
