Mitt Romney and Barbra Streisand, Two “People Who Love People,” Sing Duet Together


It’s been quite a week for Mitt Romney.

On Monday, Slate brought the sad but fascinating story of Ann Keenan, his brother-in-law’s sister, who died of an illegal abortion in 1963 and made young Mitt decide he’d always make sure women had access to safe abortions (until he decided to run for president). By Thursday, he said his now infamous “corporations are people” quote, which is unquestionably the first 2012 presidential candidate’s gaffe on the order of the “fundamentals of our economy are strong” or “they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion.”

And by Friday, the Democratic National Committee had Mitt singing about those “people” in a duet with…Barbra Streisand!
