Laura Ingraham, friend of NRO, is MCing tomorrow’s Ames Straw poll and has been interviewing the participants this morning.
I’m paraphrasing the following exchange with Mitt Romney from a few minutes ago:
Laura: I want to see you get angry more, I thought you handled that radio host in Iowa who was trying to tell you he knew more about your religion than you did – I thought you handled that great.
Romney: Heh. Well, I’m not a very angry guy, but I’m no shrinking violet, either, and when someone goes after my family or my religion or says that I’m not a faithful member of my church, I’m going to let him have it.
Laura: I think I want to see you come out for tomorrow’s straw poll in a black leather jacket. White t-shirt, a pack of cigarettes rolled up in your sleeve. Or could you, you know, mess up your hair a little?
Romney: Nobody alters my hair, Laura. But maybe I’ll unbutton the top button.
