One of Mitt Romney’s aides badly needs to give him a crash course in baseball.
A few weeks ago, Romney, in attempting to explain a fib that was unusually slimy even for him, he talked about how he saw the Patriots win the World Series. Confident as I am that love of America beats strong in Manny Ramirez’s breast, I don’t think that’s what Romney was talking about.
Then, in the wake of his defeat in Iowa, Romney flashed that TV anchor grin and said,
This is obviously a bit like a baseball game, first inning. Well, itâ€™s a 50-inning ball game. Iâ€™m going to keep on battling all the way and anticipate I get the nomination when itâ€™s all said and done.
Please, for the love of our country, couldn’t somebody talk to the guy?
This is an Associated Press photo of Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney removing a sign in Boston that is supposed to read “REVERSE CURVE,” but has often been graffitied to read “REVERSE THE CURSE,” and which has on this occasion been graffitied with a slightly different message…
According to the AP’s caption, the sign has been up for at least 33 years. Now, here’s the good news about it being removed: it’s nonstandard. It’s a warning sign, so according to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, it should be black letters on a yellow background. You know, like one of these. So let’s hope the Massachusetts Department of Transportation or the city of Boston (I’m not sure who has jurisdiction over that sign) is going to replace it with better signage.
