"Let me set you straight about ol' Mitt. Once he nearly drowned a buddy's dog in the ocean, and when he was a missionary in France he put on a sheet and threatened a friend. See? People have the wrong impression. He isn't an android like Data. Not at all. He's an android like Ash."

Romney pulled into the driveway, jumped out of the car and immediately ran over to Graham's Doberman pinscher, Samurai.

Anybody else's eyes unintentionally skip over the word "to" in this sentence?

Nadie_AZ: Is this a joke?

This almost reads as an onion piece.

"I worry about him," said Clayton Christensen, a fellow Mormon, an influential business theorist and a friend of Romney's.

In his office at Harvard Business School, surrounded by certificates and the books he has written - including "The Innovator's Solution," "The Innovator's Prescription" and "The Innovator's Dilemma" - Christensen argued that Romney should open up more. He said the candidate should talk about the way he navigated acrimonious negotiations between the selling partners and the junior partners at Bain and Co. during a near-mutiny that nearly sank the firm.

"Oh my gosh, if you could tell that story in the context of a bifurcated Congress that can't agree on anything," Christensen said, adding that there were "hundreds and hundreds of people whose livelihoods depended on this. Why can't he tell us this story? Nobody knows.

This guy comes across as out of touch, too.

He doesn't even have friends that own personable personalities.

Can you imagine that story on the campaign trail?

"....and then Chad stood up and demanded that he get a car allowance for his Bentley. I was the one who proposed that we fire two of the secretaries to pay for it. It's this kind of leadership I will bring to the White House."

sprawl15: Jackson Herring: Will-Mun: And the dog dove for hours? What kind of dog does that? If my family's dog can't find her toy for more than five minutes she goes on doing something else... Like play with a different toy...

The dog's "favorite ball" was actually a Faberge egg.

And the 'dog' was actually Graham's wife.

Mr. and Mrs. Patrick and Samurai Graham, esq.

Based on his history there's a chance he was trying to drown the dog, but it just wouldn't stay down.

Hell, after reading that, I might vote for him myself.

"And my dog Samurai, he dove into that ocean for hours, and he'd come out of the ocean just whimpering."

I am sensing a pattern...
