From a slavering Washington Examiner profile:
Romney is “brilliant” in his ability to analyze complicated problems and formulate solutions and “sophisticated” in his understanding of politics, those in his orbit say. Yet he is not a complicated person, with simple tastes that can seem out of place with a man worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
“My favorite meat is hot dog, by the way. That is my favorite meat,” he told a gathering of supporters as they joined him recently for a casual dinner organized by his campaign. “My second favorite meat is hamburger. And, everyone says, oh, don’t you prefer steak? It’s like, I know steaks are great, but I like hot dog best, and I like hamburger next best.”
“Whomst among us regular Josephs does not prefer the moist succulence of ground ham over the effortful nature of more slab-like meats?” https://t.co/pFhg45K0Qj
