Quadrennial White House wannabe Mitt Romney (R-Oops! . . . I’m Running Again) has to be the least funny politician ever.
From Matt Viser’s toe-curling report in Friday’s Boston Globe Political Notebook about Romney’s campaign swing through Iowa:
When a woman dropped her camera on the floor, and the batteries spilled out, Romney cracked: “You’ve got to get them in the right order or the pictures will be upside down. Just kidding.’’
But the real e-Viser-ation was this:
By the time he got to his last stop, in Council Bluffs, Romney delivered what at times felt like a stand-up comedy routine. In describing his economic proposal, he said: “I’ve got a 59-step program. The guys at Alcoholics Anonymous would say, ‘59 steps is too many.’ ’’
Rule #1: No teetotaler should ever make an Alcoholics Anonymous joke.
