Balance is very important, and Mitt knows it. Evidence? Every single name on the shortlist is a human being. The perfect complement.A bit sprawling in places, but the core idea is a win.
But I'm hoping that Mitt goes outside the box by hiring a Ronald Reagan impersonator and claiming that it's Ronald Reagan. "But Reagan is dead!" says the liberal media. "Don't you wish, Com-symps! The liberal media claimed he was dead so they could put socialist GHW Bush in the White House and his son could betray conservatism by governing as a conservative. He's as alive as you and me." (A song comes to mind)
The fact-check sites investigate, but can't find conclusive proof that Reagan is dead. Yes, Romney has referred to "the late Ronald Reagan," but you can't believe anything he says. California refuses to release the long-form death certificate, and Peggy Noonan refuses to have the body exhumed. The fact that the alleged impersonator has on at least two occasions said in front of credible witnesses, "I'm getting sick of this; just give me my check and I'm out of here," is suggestive, but reports from the '80's confirm that Ronald Reagan said the same thing at the end of nearly every cabinet meeting.
We rate the claim that Ronald Reagan is dead as half-true, and the claim that he is alive as half-false.
I don't really have any additional value added to this one, but I'll tag on that I totally agree with Seth Masket's advice to Mitt Romney today: be conventional and boring!
