    The Romney campaign is spittin' mad, because there are hijinx afoot in his semi-home state of Michigan. (Can't fully count it as a home state, since his wife doesn't even have a Cadillac there.)

    One of my little pet peeves during the 2008 Presidential election cycle was the total lack of commentary about John McCain's marital history.

By 2007, when he was running to the right of John McCain in the Republican Presidential primaries, Romney had made his opposition to reform a centerpiece of his campaign, blasting McCain over it in debates, and running harsh ads on the issue.
