For No Particular Reason, Mitt Romney Wants To Remind You That He’s Only Been Married To One Woman

I wonder who Mitt Romney might be thinking of in this new ad that started running today in Iowa:

    Duh…I don’t know. Ronald Reagan maybe? Herman Cain…no…wait. I got it! I got it!
    Mr. Morality hisself…Newt the Scoot! (He scoots from one wife to the next…)

  2. Moosebreath says:

    He’s looking for something to say which he hasn’t flip-flopped on.

  3. legion says:

    Things that make you go “Hmmmmmm….”

  4. Kylopod says:

    I can’t believe he included the “I’ve been married for 25…I mean 42 years” gaffe in the ad.

  5. Gustopher says:

    @Kylopod: Not being able to remember how long he’s been married might be the most human thing about Willard “Mitt” Romney.

    Well, they do have 5 (I think) kids…

    Hey….whatta ya know….me too…..but I’d like to take it a step further and say that gay marriage and/or the prospect of such, has had no effect on my straight marriage….nor my breeding status…..just sayin’…

    Newt’s inability to stay monogamous is just a sign he’s an alpha male, a real leader.

  9. Maybe he wanted to make sure that the anti-mormon evangelicals don’t think he has mulitple wives?
