As far as Fourth of July campaign malarkey goes, I try to pay as little attention to it as possible during political campaigns.
Willard Mitt "Mittens" Romney, however, coughed something up during a campaign stop day before yesterday in scenic Wolfeboro, NH, that was so weird that I couldn't let it slip past:
"Happy Fourth of July!" Romney wished supporters as he criss-crossed the street, his Secret Service agents in tow, to shake as many hands as possible. "Happy Birthday, America!"
When one supporter yelled, "Save our spirit," Romney responded with an emphatic "You bet!"
"Get out and vote next year, this November, I mean!" said Romney, wiping beads of sweat off his brow. At one point, stopping to guzzle a glass of lemonade, Romney was asked how it tasted, to which he replied, "Lemon. Wet. Good."
Maybe he was suffering from heat stroke?
