Mitt Romney Too Manly and Important to Know the Difference Between ‘Sikhs’ and ‘Sheikhs’
I was in Chicago earlier today. We had a moment of silence in honor of the people who lost their lives at that sheikh temple. I noted that it was a tragedy for many, many reasons. Among them are the fact that people, the sheikh people are among the most peaceable and loving individuals you can imagine, as is their faith.
Mitt Romney is not a stupid man. He went to Harvard, he was a very successful businessman, he championed the idea of the individual mandate in Massachusetts’ version of the Affordable Care Act when he was the governor. His campaign spokesman defended the incredibly unfortunate slip of the tongue by claiming that it had been a long day, and Mitt Romney was tired. But maybe Romney’s seeming lack of knowledge about which group of brown people suffered recent tragedy was another calculated move to showcase his manliness.
