Making Fun of Mitt Romney

I mentioned in my last post that today might be a better day to make fun of the governor. While the news from New Orleans and coastal Mississippi is only getting worse, I thought it might be worthwhile to bring your attention to this little bit of levity from Boston Magazine, before it goes online:

Imagine Mitt Romney walking into a Dunkin' Donuts shop. After cooly assessing the globs of gluten, the muffins that look like evil brains, and the weapons-grade frosting, he switches his smile to high beam, blinding the tired immigrants behind the counter.

"I'll have a lightly boiled egg," says the governor, "with a wedge of seven-grain toast garnished with a teaspoon of imperial black caviar. Also, half a grapefruit sprinkled with unrefined cane sugar. And eight ounces of papaya juice, hand-squeezed by a Peruvian virgin and served in a silver goblet. Oh, and a Wall Street Journal." he lays down a crisp dollar bill. "Keep the change. Vote Romney."
