Anyway, I was thinking the other day about the leading Republican candidate for President.
That's right! The warm and cuddly Mitt Romney. As I stared at his name a strange thing began to happen in my mind. First, I thought, let's delete the first letter of his last name.
That leaves us with just "omney". You may be beginning to get my drift.
Now let's reverse the position of those first two letters.
And what do we end up with? Why the overriding principle for his campaign.
That would seem to indicate some type of internal psychic coding. Since Magnificent Mittens has been shown to be far and away the richest of the candidates, since he shows little understanding of economic reality ("I make some money from public speaking . . . not much." Well over 300 thousand dollars last year!), since he shows an incredibly tin ear ("I like to fire people" and "I'm not concerned about the poor.") and, as New York Times columnist Gail Collins frequently reminds us, he once drove to Canada with the family's dog strapped to the roof of his car . . . that coded and disguised word MONEY hidden in his name tells us everything we need to know about him.
But at least he's not as bad as Nasty Newt or as loopy as Dr. Ron "Goldbug" Paul.
Leastwise, we don't think he is. Yet.
