Romney said, "Well, I'd like one of those...um...um...er...ah...um...chocolate goodies!" So, he was unable to identify said item as a donut.
When I mentioned this somewhat humorous little event (along with how regular-joe Mitt happened to own a competitor in the Olympic dancing horsey competition), the board's high-strung right wingers erupted in support of their hero. They went on and on about it. Some people--well, just blaise, really--are still resentful of my good-natured ribbing and claim I was/am "fixated" by it.
And now you know...the rest of the story.
That is kind of funny, really. Maybe the word "doughnut" slipped his mind. I don't know. Stuff like that happens to me. I think if I was standing there listening when it happened though I'd assume he was just being goofy. I do goofy stuff too. Then again, I've never ran for President. And I'm not a ridiculously rich guy awkwardly trying to connect with normal humans.
