Comedy Central wants me to revive my Romney revulsion.

Comedy Central's "Indecision 2008" blog has seen fit to call attention to my February 25, 2005, post criticizing Mitt Romney for being the "governor of a state he hates." How I hope this isn't timely! (Hot tip for McCain: You've already got a lock on Utah. Try someone else!) But just in case you want even more of my rusty commentary on Romney, here are a few from my Romney archives: Why can't Romney be a Mormon moderate like his dad? (3.6.05); Theological question a reporter should ask Romney (10.7.06); and Romney's pluralism tolerates all conservative religions (12.9.07).

When he was still spending his fortune trying to be the next Bush, I tracked all sorts of fascinating Romney news at But now I'm bored of him. Then again, 8-house McCain needs someone to help him connect with the average American, so who better than 3-house multimillionaire? (Via DailyKos)

Yeah, Utah's a lock, but my fair state of Michigan hasn't gone Republican since '88, I think, in a presidential election, and is considered very much in play for this election. Romney has Michigan ties & is very popular here, since his dad was a popular governor. (Yeah, I know, it doesn't make sense to me. But that's the way it is.) Romney won the primary here. I can see a Romney VP pick being the decisive factor in the way Michigan goes. There's no other Republican that I think could deliver this state the same way. So I think Romney is a pretty big threat from where I'm sitting.

All this time I thought his name was "Nit." No kidding.

"Mitt." I don't think it's way better...
