Scathingly Funny Romney

Check out number 7 of Romney’s top ten reasons for dropping out of the presidential race tonight at the Radio and TV Correspondents dinner:

No. 10: There weren’t as many Osmonds as he thought.

No. 9: Got tired of the corkscrew landings of his campaign plane while under fire

No. 8: As a lifelong hunter, I didn’t want to miss the start of varmint season.

No. 7: There wasn’t room for two Christian leaders in the presidential race

No. 6: Word leaked out that nobody had bothered to search my passport files.

No. 5: I’d rather get fat, grow a beard and try for the Nobel prize.

No. 4: Got tired of wearing a dark suit and tie, and I wanted to kick back in a light colored suit and tie.

No. 3: When his wife realized he couldn’t win the GOP nomination, my fundraising dried up.

No. 2: I took a bad fall at a campaign rally and broke my hair.

And the No. 1 reason Romney dropped out: His campaign relied on a flawed campaign strategy that as Utah goes, so goes the nation.
