What Does Mitt Romney Have in Common With Catholic Incense?
Mitt Romney sure did have a hectic weekend, having to balance heavy duty damage control -- that whole "stay at home moms need to learn the dignity of work"-thing -- with a "Saturday Night Live" bid.
Monday morning's recaps don't just provide a great opportunity to look back at the Republican presidential candidate's campaign activity: Some Romney coverage entertains because it's just kind of...yeah.
"Mitt Romney's Mormon faith has hovered over his 20-year political career like a thick layer of incense at Easter Mass," writes Politico.
Also: "Mitt Romney won't be filing his taxes tomorrow. Mitt Romney feels about his tax returns the way the bad guy in The Spy Who Loved Me feels about the plans for his submarine tracking device: Anyone who even comes into contact with them must die. So he's filed for an extension," opines a Huffington Post writer.
