One thing Mitt Romney has never been accused of is being hip. He is the quintessential nerd – a geek’s geek, an überwonk. He doesn’t drink or smoke or chase women. He’s a square. He’s boring. All he needs is a pocket-protector and a slide rule (and you can bet he had both when he was younger).
And he is just what this country needs right now.
We do not need a hip, cool, charismatic leader. We don’t need an intellectual. We need competence. We need a nerd.
We need Mitt Romney.
