Slow news week?
A cursory glance at the responses to that tweet shows just how annoyed people are that an established, beltway newspaper is making mountains out of molehills. Honestly, who the hell cares? Not only is the story silly on its face for obvious reasons, but the fact is Mitt Romney is retired. There is zero chance he’s running for president in 2016. And even if he was, the story would still be equally as irrelevant.
It’s an interesting fact, I guess, that a lion killer also happens to be a Romney supporter. But what is the actual point of the story? Is it to provide information about the most hated man in the media right now -- or to take an indirect swipe at recently-retired and out-of-the-limelight Republican pol? I just don't get it.
By the way...yikes.
