Somebody over at NRO finally had the stamina to publish what is painfully obvious to people whose brains process things normally: Mitt Romney, the poor fella, has something creepy and weird going on in the hat rack.
But as his campaign has matured, we’re forced to consider a somewhat uncomfortable question. Is there something a little… (shuffling feet, looking at floor, averting eyes)… strange about the guy?
Perhaps saying his favorite novel was Battlefield Earth (by L. Ron Hubbard) was a brilliant strategy to avoid any controversy over Mormonism by replacing it with speculation that the candidate has an interest in Scientology.
Perhaps the strapping the dog to the roof of the family car is one of those stories that sounds a little — okay, a lot — weird afterwards to outsiders, but if you were there, hooboy, it made perfect, hilarious sense. And Romney insists the dog loved it.
And as for having a “director of operations” who is under investigation for impersonating a police officer… well, perhaps any candidate could have a staffer who behaves a little strangely.
And the 13-minute web video about the Romney family at Christmas… well, it shows a heartwarming, Norman Rockwellish family scene in a beautiful home… but one wonders who videotapes the family holiday get-together and puts it on a campaign website? (And why did he wash the dishes with his shirt sleeves down?)
Do read the entire Geraghty piece which is hilariously written.

Yeah, but when people use the word "creepy" with Giuliani, they're talking about the poor fella's intimacy issues with women. When people use the word creepy when referring to Giuliani, they're talking about the womanizing. As much as they disagree with having your cookie living in the same house as your wife, he's broken not weird.
