Context is all
July 27, 2012 - Harry Eagar
This is the most entertaining electoral season in a long time. The candidates act as their own straight men.
If Mitt Romney, who has some cred on Olympic topics, had merely said that the UK organizers had faced some disconcerting obstacles, no one would have cracked a smile. But nooo!
First he had to inspire some underling to suggest that Romney truly understands "Anglo-Saxon culture," feeding the racist idea that Obama is an unAmuurican, Moooslim commie. (Since I am not myself "Anglo," I would have deprecated Romney's increasingly racist rhetoric, but that's another topic.)
But it turns out Romney has little, if any, understanding of the pricklinesses of the British. Less, anyway, than Obama has shown. Thus, as he left England, tail between his legs, the Sun (the largest newspaper) labeled him "MITT THE TWIT."
Worse, in its way, than when Bush I ralphed in the premier's lap.
