It’s probably not a surprise. But can I just say that if Mitt Romney wins in November, he is going to have a very chilly reception from his employees every time he goes abroad? I don’t think I can quite state the rage we’re all feeling towards him.

Knee-jerker, undisciplined, obsessed with the politics and not the job and so on. This is a reminder of his other great liability. He’s no one anyone with a brain and self respect would ever want to work for.
*I don’t usually grab someone else’s post in its entirety. But I can’t see cutting that, really, and the point is worth hammering home, IMHO.
