My Campaign Memories by Matt Taibbi

Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi spent more time than a human should on the road over the past two years. After writing several incredible articles from the campaign trail covering nearly every candidate he wraps it all up with a best of style article.
I read most of this today on the bus ride into work and was actually LOL (I rarely mean it when I type it, but seriously I was LOL).


"Romney was, in his way, the worst of the bunch. His plan, apparently, was to run out the clock — to hold his breath and rely on his superior Mormon moral conditioning while he waited for all the other mutants in the race to die of their genetic vulnerabilities. Not a bad strategy. What undermined him was that if you weren't already a Romney supporter, it took about five seconds in his toothy, celluloid presence before you started feeling a profound urge to wizard-kick him in the face. You could see that phenomenon everywhere, even in the eyes of the other Republican candidates."
