Mitt Romney Fun Time

You can't make this shit up.

What’s the most fun thing Mitt Romney ever did?

According to senior strategist Eric Fehrnstrom, it was the time a Massachusetts state trooper short-sheeted Romney’s hotel bed, and the governor responded by convincing the trooper a maid had been fired as a result. Romney reportedly had a reputation as a prankster among his staff. [...]

Fehrnstrom recounted the trooper story.

“I remember one trip he took as governor, one of the troopers who was assigned to his protective detail short-sheeted his bed. Now that in itself should tell you something about governor Romney, that a state trooper who’s assigned to protect him would be emboldened enough to short-sheet his bed, but he did,” Fehrnstrom said.

“The governor, in order to turn the tables on the trooper, sat down and composed a letter as if it had been written by the hotel manager, addressed it to himself as the governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, apologized for the bad housekeeping and the shortsheeting of his bed and informed him that we have taken action to fire the chambermaid responsible.

Yes. I have no doubt that Mitt Romney could compose a very convincing letter leading the trooper to believe one of the hotel maids was fired. After all, he did that for a living.

I also have no doubt that Romney would find this to be very amusing.

This is from January, but today's story immediately reminded me of it.
