Romney and the MittWits

Outgoing Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney is not going out fast enough. One of his last-ditch efforts to screw his successor is the appointment of an executive director of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center. This state-created board oversees stem cell research funding. Despite the scientific nature of the post, Romney's appointee has no science background and no search was conducted to find candidates for this position. I think we can see how a Romney Administration would handle federal agencies, can't we?

Romney is rapidly cornering the market on conservatives in his all-but-announced race against John McCain and Rudy Giuliani for the Republican't nomination in 2008. He is surrounding himself with like-minded MittWits who will give him the conservative street cred he craves. Anti-tax conservatives Glenn Hubbard and Greg Mankiw will co-chair Romney’s Economic Advisory Council, and Cesar Conda, a former Cheney staffer , will be senior economic advisor to Romney's PAC.

Now all Romney has to do is point out that Giuliani has gay friends and McCain has a dark-skinned daughter and the nomination should be his.
