Not a surprising story out from Glen Johnson of the AP:
BOSTON —To hear Mitt Romney talk on the campaign trail, you might think the Republican presidential candidate had a gun rack in the back of his pickup truck.
“I purchased a gun when I was a young man. I’ve been a hunter pretty much all my life,” he said this week in Keene, N.H., to a man sporting a National Rifle Association cap.
Yet the former Massachusetts governor’s hunting experience is limited to two trips at the bookends of his 60 years: as a 15-year-old, when he hunted rabbits with his cousins on a ranch in Idaho, and last year, when he shot quail on a fenced game preserve in Georgia.
This gives me an excuse to mention that Romney has been featured in a series of Doonesbury comic strips this week. While not exactly funny, the strips are helping to popularize the image of Romney as the flip-flopper of the 2008 campaign (I like the moniker “Multiple Choice Mitt”).
