Dear Republicans: There's hope yet for Mitt. I have the proof
Hey, all you conservative types now down on Mitt’s lackluster campaign and his prospects for beating Obama in November: History shows he can overcome his own self-defeating inclination to run truly wretched campaigns. I have proof. … Yes, I speak of none other than Romney’s “Ann”
commercial from 2002, the one I was talking about yesterday
. Believe me, it’s as bad as I remembered it from ten years ago, when Mitt was running for governor of Massachusetts and “Ann” ran over and over and over again on local TV stations, alarming and depressing even his most ardent supporters. It was as if the cast of the Brady Bunch Movie
had been set loose in Massachusetts – in the guise of the Romney campaign. Mitt’s poll numbers didn’t start to improve until after his campaign dumped this jaw-dropper and started punching away at his opponent and the Democratic establishment on Beacon Hill. And the rest is gubernatorial history -- and maybe, just maybe, history is repeating itself. … A big thanks to Kevin for finding the lost “Ann” gem.
