Glen Romney Glen Mitt

Before he turned into a conservative whackaloon, David Mamet created the perfect Mitt Romney speech for the film version of Glengarry Glen Ross. And Alec Baldwin played the perfect Mitt Romney.

There’s no underestimating the Democratic ability to pluck defeat from the jaws of victory, but even with all the Daddy Wingbucks money, attack ads, and racist appeals, Mittens still can’t close the deal. So when Romney goes down in flames in November, I picture another replay of Glengarry, this one with the voters as Jonathan Pryce, Al Pacino as the conservative movement, and Kevin Spacey as Mitt.

Where geekery meets politics
