Really, people, morning blogging would be so much different if y’all just got up early and came for our walk. I think of all kinds of things I mean to tell and show you that are gone by the time I get home and eat breakfast and get settled behind the computer.
But here are the two things I thought were neat enough this morning.
1. The drywall guy could balance a huge sheet of drywall on one hand while climbing a ladder and fiddling with getting a screw on the end of his screw driver with the other. The first time I saw him do it, I said, “Holy shit!” and he said “Oh, it’s light. It’s real easy to move around.” But people, it wasn’t just that he was holding up a sheet one-handed. It was how gracefully he maneuvered around the living room with it balanced on one hand. It was amazing.
2. There’s something in Mitt Romney’s tax returns he doesn’t want Republican voters to see. I feel like a dumbass for not realizing that before, but that’s what it is. It’s not about taxes, otherwise, seriously, he could have just released the tax returns back in the late winter, when it was obvious he was going to be the nominee, taken the flack for it then, and used his “I don’t pay more taxes than I’m legally required to” line (which I find laughable, but I think makes sense to most people). It would have blown over. And it wouldn’t have hurt him with his base at all.
The only reason I can see to not just release the returns is not that Reid is right–after all, that only reaffirms to Democrats and Obama-leaning independents that he shouldn’t be in office. It’s got to be that there’s something in them that could cost him Republican votes.
