Mitt, The Man With The Special Underwear

Will get a wedgie in Michigan. I sure hope so. Here a bit of the piece:
On the campaign trail, Romney has presented himself alternately as a Christian Coalition ideologue and as a pragmatic, can-do corporate fixer-upper in the mold of Chrysler savior Lee Iacocca. He pledges to do for America what he did for corporations when he ran Bain Capital's private equity business. But these days, private equity is a dirty word for many Michigan voters—even the Republican members of the managerial class. Private equity doesn't signify profits and fortunes. It signifies Cerberus, the new owner of Chrysler, which is presiding over huge job cuts. That's probably why Mike Huckabee's decided to turn his dig at Romney—"most Americans want their next president to remind them of the guy they work with, not the guy who laid them off"—into a television advertisement.

Finally - we may finally have some honest refs. Holmgren is getting fatter and a deeper shade of purple. Be thankful you are not in Green Bay as Holmgren will probably explode in the second quarter.
