Through A Teleprompter, Dorkly

At this point we've taken a right turn at the evil mirror universe and ended up in the really, really sad reality where a major party "frontrunner" is lying about their own name.

Responding to Wolf Blitzer’s own self-introduction — in which Wolf said “and yes, that is my real name” — Romney began: “I’m Mitt Romney — and yes Wolf, that’s also my first name.”

Except Romney’s first name is “Willard,” and “Mitt” is his middle name.

Franz Kafka would have cracked by now, Francis Bacon would have run from the room screaming, and I'm pretty sure Oscar Wilde would have chewed off his own leg after just three of these debates.  Makes me feel pretty good about my being able to continue to stomach the Abyss here, but it's not just staring back, it has position papers written by Cthulhu.

It's enough to drive a man mad.
