Good Lord. Mitt Romney is such a horrible, horrible candidate. He gave a big speech today that landed with a ... thud. First, the quote that sums this guy up perfectly:
This feels good being back in Michigan. You know, the trees are the right height, the streets are just right. I like the fact that most of the cars I see are Detroit-made automobiles. I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs.
"Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs." Oy.

Then, there's (as Paul Harvey used to say) "the rest of the story." Romney spoke to an empty stadium, his jokes fell flat, and his proposals were the same tired ones he's already put out there. The Hill provides details here.

I was getting ready to write a blog post today about how Romney is likely to win Michigan despite the polls showing a statistical tie but now ... who knows? This guy just can't seem to do anything right.

What are you talking about, it was a an *absolutely brilliant* speech.

He just shoulda added "if you know what I mean," after "the trees are 'the right height in Michigan,'" and it would have been an upper-deck HR.
