Even though Mitt tells it “stay down, do you want to mess me up”, it still sings from time to time, as it did yesterday at the Daytona 500:
Asked by the AP reporter if he follows NASCAR, Romney responded, “Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners.”
Mitt’s bluebird is kept in a golden cage covered with temple garments, but even when Mitt is reading from a script, we still heard it sing in Detroit on Friday when it told the world that Ann drives “a couple of Cadillacs”.
The reason we hear Mitt’s bluebird is because it is used to living in a world where money is how you keep score, and Mitt was a winner in that world. Whenever Mitt has to debase himself by pretending that his money doesn’t matter, that he’s just like everyone else, his bluebird gets angry and sounds off. It’s not right to call these little glimpses into Mitt’s heart “mistakes” or “gaffes”. He believes very deeply that people should be impressed that he knows other rich people, or that he can buy as many cars as he pleases, and that’s why these little slips are so telling. Everything else that comes out of Mitt’s mouth lacks the authenticity of his bluebird’s song.
