Every couple days, like clockwork, I realize it's been a couple days since Mitt Romney's last gaffe, and bam, like Old Faithful, there he goes. His regularity is really quite extraordinary, a kind of perverse national treasure.
Romney's commitment to this infamous 48-hour limit came today--ding ding ding--on Fox News in response to a question about his acceptance speech's Afghanistan omission:
When you give a speech you don’t go through a laundry list, you talk about the things that you think are important.
Romney preceded that nationally televised display of galloping insensitivity with some vintage Romneyesque testiness (followed, of course, by that evil little laugh): "I only regret you’re repeating [the accusation] day in and day out."
As I said, a real treasure.
