Apparently, when Mitt Romney speaks to his peeps, the 1%, he finally gets authentic. "My job is not to worry about those people," he sez, by which he means the other people not invited to $50,000-a-plate fundraisers at the posh homes of hedge-fund managers.
"My job is not to worry about those people." (Incidentally, we already knew that about you, Mitt, but we appreciate the confirmation.).
Mitt told his filthy rich that some 47% of the American electorate -- is that roughly half? -- are just freeloaders anyway, including, we assume, all those elderly people riding on Medicare-funded scooters who are probably planning to vote for this man anyway, since the news won't penetrate as far as Fox.
Then last night, at "a hastily arranged press conference," Mitt sez he ain't sorry for the sentiments, only the "inelegantly" chosen words. Hell, we thought the words were ever bit as elegant as the setting.
