Yes, it is. We are more viscerally aware than anyone what a dishwatery flip-flopper he is, because he was governor here in one of his earlier, now unrecognizable iterations. The man's defining trait is his fraudulence. The notion that he could take MA rests on the assumption that Bay Staters are so powerfully attracted to GOP-base-pandering Romney that they will overlook his complete disavowal of MA-election-winning Romney. Not gonna happen.I say this as someone who voted...

(sorry, had not seen this thread when I posted a link elsewhere.

It ranks second only to the time I realized Christopher Walken was at the urinal next to me for my "All-Time Awkwardest Celebrity-Related Experience"
I once toyed with the idea of making a wiki entitled "Comprehensive List of Topics Upon Which Tyler Cowen Knows Everything" but realized I wanted to grow up and have a family at some point. His book about Autism is hilarious because he seems to come to an earnest "realization" that he is himself autistic. Anybody who reads his output or meets him for more than a couple seconds and doesn't know this immediately has to be an idiot. He's like how I imagine Rasputin must have...
