Mitt Romney: U.S. Senate Hopeful, U.S. Senate Huckster

Well, that didn’t take long.

Yesterday Mitt Romney (R-Wherever) threw his top hat into the Utah Senate race with this tweet.

And, apparently, to sell some merchandise, because about five minutes later this email landed in the hardworking staff’s inbox.

(To be sure graf goes here)

To be sure, that sort of pitch is campaign business as usual and perfectly in keeping with Romney’s announcement that “[if] you give me this opportunity, I will owe the Senate seat to no one but the people of Utah. No donor, no corporation will own my campaign or bias my vote.”

That’s great, but c’mon, Mitt – do you really need ten bucks from schlubs like us to fuel your all-but-inevitable victory? The cost of this race would be lunch money to you. Why not do something truly radical and zip-zone those stickers to every Utah resident on your own dime?

That would totally “serve Utahns”- which is quite possibly the most awkward state designation ever.

And that, you have to adMitt, is just so Romney.

    And he didn’t even have to develop new campaign materials! All he had to do was cross out “Massachusetts” and write “Utah” in crayon.
