Rarely does one short quote generate so much irony that we need two shot-glasses to handle it. Listen to Michigan Mittens as he confronts a heathen Socialist from the Great White North:
Romney’s best line of the day was unscripted. A stray Canadian had driven from Ontario to ask Romney a question and in the process joked that Romney could not have his ID card for Canada’s national health-care system.
The ball sat on the tee for a long second before Romney hit it. “I don’t want it!” Romney said. The crowd roared.
The Irony Shot: Mitt Romney, who’s wife suffers from MS, has about $220 million to cover her medical care. So yeah, he really doesn’t need it so not wanting it seems superfluous.
The Irony Chaser: Mittens lives in a state, Massachusetts, with universal health insurance! So yeah, he really doesn’t need it.
I wonder how many in that cheering crowd could say the same?
