Thanks for stopping by: The Mitt edition

So long, candidate Romney. Thanks for playing.

Anyone who can make it that far in the electoral process despite having campaign signs shaped like baseball gloves (yes, we get it, a mitt is also something you wear on your hand) deserves kudos for overcoming bad graphics, if nothing else.

Just curious what changed between Tuesday night, when you said you were staying in the race, and this morning, when you announced you were suspedning your bid to become the first person-named-like-a-glove in the White House. Must have been the results of all of those primaries and caucuses on Super Wednesday.

I'm sad. I'm not going to lie. I feel like my life no longer has a purpose.

Maybe if he'd had the Arby's Oven Mitt campaign for him, things would have gone better.

Arby's has an oven mitt? Where was that idea before Super Tuesday? I do love me some of that horsey sauce.

You don't remember the Arby's Oven Mitt ad campaign from a few years back? It was a talking Oven Mitt that was both sassy AND really excited about Arby's. I loved the Mitt, but I don't think anyone else did, because apparently it was a pretty short-lived campaign.
