Romney's zany campaign strategy

I suppose Willard thought he being clever with these remarks. In an interview on Wednesday when asked about Gingrich he told the NYT:
“Zany is not what we need in a president.”

“Zany is great in a campaign. It’s great on talk radio. It’s great in print, it makes for fun reading,” Mr. Romney told The New York Times. “But in terms of a president, we need a leader, and a leader needs to be someone who can bring Americans together.”
Somebody get this man a dictionary. Zany is Harpo Marx. Zany is Buddy Hackett. Zany is Robin Williams as Mork from Ork. Zany is Stephen Colbert. One might even stretch to call Charlie Sheen zany. Hell, I have zany moments myself.

Newt isn't zany. He's more like that doll Chucky from the horror movies. A seemingly harmless plaything that nobody believes is capable of doing truly creepy stuff. And by the time the adults figure it out, it's too late.

Newt as Chucky?

Good grief, that's as apt a comparison as I've ever seen.

And now I'll be having nightmares for weeks.

Creeped myself out with this post but they do even kind of look a bit alike.
