My wife, God bless her, never misses the subtle way most politicians work their magic. When she saw the GOP candidate for president, the honorable (?) Mitt Romney, show up in Maine wearing overalls, she had this to say:

“Strange, all along in his campaign, he was in a suit and or on some sites just with good pants and a white shirt, open at the top, of course.”

My wife thought it was an insult to all the good people of Maine that when Romney came here, he had to “dress down” so we would all feel he is one of us.

My wife always said dressing in a suit doesn’t change a person’s character, so I ask the people of Maine and the GOP caucus: Is Romney a flip-flopper on clothes as well as his politics? Something to think about, eh?
