"Romney is so polished on the stump his handlers are going to have to
schedule a lot of whimsical, impromptu off–the-record moments of
natural expression during the campaign. This might have been the goal
when Romney opened his speech by singing the lyrics to "Davy Crockett"
and altering the last line to, "Doctorrrr, Doctor Bill Frist, king of
the wild frontier." This sucking up to the hometown favorite coupled
with Clark Griswold
goofiness made me want to dive under the desk out of embarrassment for
Romney and mankind. The audience didn't care. They liked him and were
still talking about him two days later."
