Why Mitt Romney is Scared of TV

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Tue, Sep 18, 2012 at 1:29 PM

There's a lot of great gaffes and terrible opinions in the full hour-long version of the Mitt Romney Dinner Party of Disaster™—but since I'm the TV guy, let's hear what he specifically had to say about TV stuff. From Business Insider:

Romney on talk shows: "Letterman hates me because I've been on Leno more than him. They're very jealous of one another, as you know."

On turning down the offer to appear on Saturday Night Live, Romney said: "I did not do that in part because you want to show that you are fun and a good person, but you also want to be presidential. Saturday Night Live has the potential of looking slapstick, and not presidential. But the View is fine."

He adds immediately that the View is "high risk" because only one out of five of the show's hosts is conservative.

WHAT… A… GOD… DAMNED… CHICKENSHIT… BABY. There's a lot more stuff in this great article, so check it out.
